Let There Be LIGHT!

Waves magic wand of infrequently used Mod powers


The New Quest is LIGHT!

Light elementals, Light Societies, Magical flashlights, lanterns that tell jokes, illuminated books and swords that shine like the sun.

Make it happen.

And so, prior to the first day of the quest, there was light.

OCT 1.

Quest OVER. 20 Submissions, awesome.

So how do you want to peel down those that we vote on.

There are 3 that have a >4.5 and 9 (+3 4.5) >4.0

Vote on 12 or the narrowed 3?

Hmm, I say all 12. But i don't have any overwhelmingly good reason for saying so

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.

Funny, that was my first thought too and then I second guessed myself. I could always allow 3 votes per person to make it interesting and spread out the voting a bit more. Get better, more firm results when allowing to vote on top 3 favorite I think.

Well, this is a tough call... What are the top 3? I see Unther and the Star Mirror as the top 2 with 4.5. I don't see a 3rd 4.5. I think we should get 3 votes on the subs with 4.0 or higher, some of the 4 x-swords subs have slightly under 4.0, knock them out and it should be a reasonable list? I think picking from 3 doesn't do a quest with 20 subs justice. My two cents.

Also: That was a fun one! I really enjoyed working on my submissions and I hope you enjoyed them. Let's give a round of applesauce for the participants!  :puke:

And I don't want to embarrass him, but one of our newer members, Dossta, really showed his true colors in this Quest. I think he is a very talented writer and promising Strolenite. I look forward to future collaboration with him. Let's give a round of applesauce for the fresh meat! :puke:

I guess we can't go with the top five highest rated submissions and vote from there?

Awww, shucks.  Thanks for that, man -- I just hope that I can GM half as well as I can write when the time comes!  I love being a Strolenite, and am definitely looking forward to more collaborative efforts in the future.

Quick question to everyone: are the participants allowed to vote?  What's the usual etiquette?

Ofcourse! Voting by one and all! In fact you must vote. Just not for your own entry   :)

Years ago, "FTW" used to have a very negative meaning: "f**k the world". This was a term commonly used by social rebels, anarchists and anti-authoritarian types to express frustration with modern society. Gratefully, this antisocial meaning has dramatically faded in use in the 21st century, and people largely use "for the win" as the modern meaning for this acronym now. :up:

That is what I thought FTW meant, and I read it as such for several years of internet meme-dom.

For the Win makes much more sense, but that explains why I had it wrong.

So you vote on quests and then vote on them again?

Dossta's is pretty well imaginative, I definitely agree =)  And it's no surprise to see a number of high rated entries by Pieh, good work.

I only see 17 entries for the Light Quest.
You have shot off my claw, but I will grow another and come back tomorrow!

My count might be skewed by my all powerful admin sight so I get to see the hidden ones that are there yet not.

We sort of vote twice, once for the quest and once for the winners of the quest.

Still an excellent turnout with some excellent quality.
