Dark Temple Contest Voting Thread

Post Thu Oct 03, 2019 9:05 pm

This is the voting thread for the Dark Temple contest. Each and every forum member has a vote, including moderators. I will refrain from voting, unless my vote is needed to break a tie.

As a reminder: Moderators can and have entered this contest, and they are eligible to win just like anyone else, BUT in the event that a moderator wins, the $25.00 prize money will be awarded to the highest-placing non-moderator.

Voting will be open until 10:00pm CDT Friday, October 18, 2019. Download the PDFs, read through them, and cast your votes before then!

These adventures will make for a nice, solid CS2 Book.

Okay, so I'm reading these adventures for the first time, and I'm noticing that they're longer than I expected. Does anyone think the voting deadline needs to be extended to give everyone more time to read them? I could go another week quite easily.

As much as I would like to read these quickly and vote, I haven't had the time (and energy) for that to occur. So, yes a good extension would probably allow me to delve in.
Is it really the end, not some crazy dream?

I think I spent about four hours reading through all of them. An extra week to vote would probably give more people a chance to at least skim through them.

Okay, I've added a week to the deadline. Hopefully everyone will have time to give them a read-through now!

Oops. Sorry. I actually was afraid my adventure was too short. I'm glad everybody seems to be enjoying reading through them all (I know I have been). Good call on the extra week.

Yes, I too seem to have written The Great American Novel. Next time it's orcs, orcs, and more orcs! :lol:

Posts on social media, forums, etc. wouldn't hurt either.

Don't apologize. Not "too long," just "longer than I expected." I'm enjoying reading them!
