So, an amazing thing happens when you ask 3 judges to prepare their personal "Best 16 Lists" out of over 330 entries - you get 3 lists that are almost each unique.
Of those 3 lists, only 7 entries made it on to 2 lists, and none made it to all 3 lists.
Soooo... those 7 will each receive $10 RPGNow Gift Certificates and one randomly chosen by +Tim Shorts last night gets the Crypts & Things PDF bundle curtesy of +Newt Newport and D101 games.
Who are those 7 you may ask and what were their entries?
+Gus L for Coward's Heart
Nathan Irving for Codex of Dungeons
Simon Hogwood for Meril's Marvelous Map
Welleron for Bag of Six Demons (Welleran will be receiving the Crypts & Things PDF Bundle)
+Joe D for Liber Rubigo Mortem
Dwayne Gillingham for Torvit's Amulet of Historic Viewing
Fred Bednarski for - Umarlak
Congrats to all of the above! I'll be contacting you in the next day or two to find out where to send your prizes.
As for the other entries? I discussed with Tim, and the idea we discussed was advancing everyone that made the lists. Which should be 34 entries in addition to the seven above (although I need to check to see if anyone made the list with more that one entry) moving on to round two.
13 of those 34 entries will get $5 RPGNow Gift certificates, to be determined randomly, but all 34 plus 7 will advance to the next round.
I'll work on that list of 34 for tomorrow night and will look to post the 7 entries that topped the list tonight.
Then round 2 will kick off later this and 41 fine folk will need to design some monsters ;)
