Commenting Challenges
« on: March 20, 2013, 12:50:31 PM »
Alright, here's the deal: 

Authors love comments on their work, and we're going to deliver.  The challenge is to pick a freetext from the following list, and reply to this thread with the one you have chosen.

http://strolen.com/freetext

Your mission is to comment on EVERY SINGLE submission that has this freetext.  Voting is optional.  Leaving an idea on the sub also counts, but upvoting comments/ideas does not.

Additional Info:
  • The freetext you choose must have at least 5 submissions that it applies to (was going to go higher, but some submissions are really long).
  • If you have already commented on a submission with that freetext, you are free to skip it if you choose.
  • Also, once you've completed the challenge, please respond back to your original post on this thread.  We're handing out kudos and imaginary cookies (and possibly Internet Points, while supply lasts).

UPDATE:
Besides the good feeling you will attain by completing this challenge, I now offer the following prize:  I will comment (and vote) on three submissions of choice for anyone who completes this challenge.  They don't have to be your own.  Please PM me your choices, and I will make sure they go to the top of my queue. :)



Pledges:
Murometz -- Spear
Dossta -- 30
MysticMoon -- Swamp


Completed:
valadaar -- Mercenary
Moonlake -- 5in1 and Decathros

Challenge accepted. I choose "Spear"
Authentic Strolenite™©®

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.

He looks for his goddess to smile upon him.

How is this going for you guys?  I've gotten through 3 pages of 30s, with another 5 to go (though I have already commented on many of them in the past).

Awesome.  If so, you're going to get a truckload of Internet Points for being the first person to complete it :)  Please remember to update your original post when you've confirmed it.  (Oh, and if you have a sub that you would like me to comment on, I'll throw that into the mix as well).

I will take "5 in 1"- not just the quest subs but the associated subs as well. I will be taking my time with this, though.
I will now also take "Decathros" but really this is a very minor freetext with 4 subs only (the majority is on a forum thread, this is the setting/map challenge started by SE, I think it's called sth like the Land of 10 Authors or sth) but I'm just doing this cos Axle's sub got me interested in the setting so I don't expect to get 3 votes on my subs just for doing it but just wanted to list it here cos it belongs.

Done with this challenge! I realised I used ambiguous wording when I responded to this challenge (associated subs could be interpreted as the 5 subs incorporated or any subs mentioned/linked to it somehow) so I actually dipped into the linkbacks etc. but then some of them are just too big and I grow tired of reading over them so I'm declaring this to be over :P

The top 3 subs that I would like a vote on are:
