It’s time to announce the winners for the Minotaur contest!

Before we begin, let me throw a couple of things out there.  First, none of the Steal This… entries from the authors of Stuffer Shack were considered; only readers.  Secondly, none of the pictures accompanying the entries had any influence; only content was considered.   Now, with that being said, here they are:

3rd place wins the Adventurer’s Bundle:

  • “Fire in the Black,” the story of Teig Makusy – Great setup for someone to play the brooding loner with one glimmering reason for hope.  Not many people can pull off this type of character, so this should help.  I especially like the amount of detail in describing how he’s gotten to his current state.

2nd place also wins the Adventurer’s Bundle:

  • Rescuing Racel – It’s a great setup for an adventure with a pretty original take on the damsel in distress, but a strong damsel.  I think it’s a great player’s aid and adventure hook, immediately calling the party to action.  It could very easily be what it seems – the wife imprisoned by her lycan husband – or it could be something entirely different – is the whole village in on it?  I would love to run this adventure.

1st place wins the huge-sized minotaur, and also the Adventurer’s Bundle:

  • Anchor, the Aquatic Warforged – Great NPC idea, and well-characterized.  It speaks volumes to me because of its originality, opening doors for PCs not usually opened in a fantasy setting (venturing underwater).  On top of that, there are a few different ways of integrating this NPC into a campaign.  Really, a great NPC.

Thank you everyone for your contributions.  I’m happy with the turnout, and look forward to the next contest.  Winners have been notified via email.

More awesomeness...

Chris Stevens

In Chris's opinion, the very best vices are dirt bikes, rock music, and gaming, while the very best medicine is fatherhood. If he could just learn to balance them all, he'd live forever. He's much more creative than intelligent, often wakes up belligerent, and ponders many things insignificant. Lastly, in an effort to transform his well-fed body, P90X, Roller Blades, and Food are all laughing at him. And the pain continues.
