Now that the top 32 have been revealed in RPG Superstar, I know I missed my shot. Am I disappointed? Yes. Am I upset? No. Why?
Because the contest itself is entertaining, engaging, exciting and enlightening.
- It's entertaining because there are 32(+) creative designs to enjoy and imagine.
- It's engaging because of the entrants, fans, judges and Paizo's messageboard community. As a whole, they're a creative, thoughtful, interesting and welcoming bunch.
- It's exciting because there is much more to come from people who have already wowed us once!
- For would be designers and future entrants, it's enlightening to learn what did and didn't advance, and to read all of the comments, straw polls, judges' remarks and critique threads.
Let me echo Jacob, here, too, and urge you to stay engaged even if you entered and didn't advance—don't let the sting of not advancing take the wind out of your sails. For would-be designers who didn't make it, this is a chance to add a +1 natural armor bonus to that thick skin you should be working on. If you stay engaged all the way through to the end, you'll learn a lot on the way, too.
