Winner of the Five-in-One Quest
« on: August 28, 2007, 01:54:28 PM »
The Five-In-One Challenge was a relative success. Many of us, myself included, just couldnt focus long enough to bust something out. Since I thought of the idea in the first place, I leave it to you fellow Strolenites, to tell me just how lame I was for not actually writing one up!  :P

However, the Quest has been conquered by several of our stalwarts! Many kudos to them, I say!

Lets take the time to read them all and vote for our favorite, folks!

Give these authors the attention their hard work deserves!

Without further ado, I give you our finalists, all six of them.

Lets pick ONE winner. That winner will receive the usual Triumph in their honor, as well as a custom set of dice!

P.S. Everyone can, and of course will vote, based on whichever parameters they wish or deem appropriate, but I would just like to add, that for this quest, some consideration should be given to the sub that best weaves together and explores the five subs in question!

Seacrest Out!

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

I threw the words upon the page, intently peering to see their patterns.  Their shadows danced in my mind, summoning more words, until a mighty legion of verbiage stood in my mind's eye, crying out to be freed. 

So I set them free...

This will go on the "one" pip obviously.

If anybody wants a set, speak up soon. It takes about 3-7 days for them to get the design and do a test run and get approval so you have time to decide how many you want.

If you want a set, I would request that you use the donation link on the frontpage and give to the site to offset the price. The dice aren't that expensive, .75 - 1.00 for each custom die (depending on quantity), but your help with the cost is greatly appreciated!

(those that have already donated are under no obligation to do so again, you will get a set of these regardless...if you want them. :) )
