Trouble with Invention – RPG Superstar 2012
“Everything that can be invented has already been invented” may be one of the more famous misqoutes of all time, but the sentiment certainly seems appropriate when trying to come up with a brand new wondrous item. Paizo’s RPG SuperStar first challenge is to design a wondrous item. Looking at the lists available on the PRD it doesn’t look too bad, until you start thinking of ideas and then finding them already listed.
Its not to say that people aren’t coming up with new and awesome items everyday, but as time goes on, that list is going to get longer. Check out the previous contests for an idea of what makes the cut. Good luck to everyone who is entering! The deadline for submissions to the open call is January 6th, 2012.
