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.
