    Oh well yeah I guess you did. Somehow I got latched on the predicted third round matchup titles not individual results. Be ready for some more bold predictions then.

    Zagyg!? Shocked

    Over Boccob!? Shocked

    Really? Question

    Hextor over Heironeous!? Exclamation Question Shocked Maddness! Evil Grin

    Love the comics Mort. Your just too much my friend. I think all the "love" is going to carry Zagyg to the top.

    But that's just me. Wink

    Can Vote Multiple Times

    Hi all -
    I totally didn't realize that with Mort's new voting scheme that you could vote multiple times. As such, Pholtus should be back, because I woulda voted like a BAZILLION times.
    So, again, this is all a sham. PHOLTUS WINS.

    Damn, that little tart bytch is still alive in the tournament.

    Theocrat Issak of the MIGHTY PHOLTUS

    It didn't even occur to me to vote multiple times. Cuz that would be dishonest, right? (maybe Good is a little dumb, at that, she suggests self-deprecatingly.) And a victory by cheating would be a hollow victory indeed...unless the god is evil, I guess. Then they might like a victory by cheating even better...

    This has been a fun event, Mort! Thanks for hosting it. I think it would be cool if we continued to have the occasional event 'round these parts, to drum up a little excitement every now and then.

    Good vs. Good

    Hi all -
    Voting multiple times equates to evil? No way, sister...we're in a contest for the GREATEST GOD OF GREYHAWK....it's either vote your way out of a paper bag or get the car door slammed against your head multiple times.

    Had I noted the multiple votes earlier, I would have voted a bazillion times for Pholtus and Vecna, and not told anybody so that then Pholtus could beat Vecna out in the end. Thus the rest of this contest is a sham. Although, I do hope Mr. Xagyg wins, after all, his patron did vote for him, and well he was Governor of Greyhawk City and imprisoned nine gods (but not Pholtus). Xagyg vs Nerull is how I have the final count coming down.

    Be Well. Be Well Hard-Headed.

    Ah Theocrat, you wiley character you. The fact is I had to sign up for a new (free) account to handle the entry load for the next two rounds of the tourney. When I did I forgot to set the form to one vote per IP number. As such tonight I had to sign up for -another- free account to get us through this round and we'll see about the last. I'd be fine with open voting but the site only allows me so many entries per account per month. Not enough for one week contests if you ask me.

    I honestly don't care that much who wins at this point, all my favorites have already been voted off the island. I voted for Wee Jas because she showed some skin. ;)

    And I feel like "riding with the Theocrat" should be a euphemism for something, but I haven't figured out what that something is yet.

    If you noticed my "signature," you'll know that my favorite has been voted off too.

    And its a western euphemism Talin. It refers to being on horseback and riding the range together as friends, through thick and thin. Jesse James and Cole Younger "rode together."

    And I believe that you were dishonest and are well aware of your Brokeback Mountain analogy. That was both ugly and completely uncalled for. And has no place on CF.

    I give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but you've certainly gone down a couple of notches in my esteem with your -- as I perceive it -- unprovoked verbal attack.

    Shocked

    Confused

    ...

    ...um, what? I was making a light-hearted comment of a very general nature (still haven't even seen Brokeback Mountain, btw); what you read into it is your deal, not mine. Not really feeling as though I'm benefiting from your doubt over here.

    For the record, I was thinking "riding with the Theocrat" might make the most sense in a phrase like, "Weep not for him, Martha; he rides with the Theocrat now," or something in that vein. (Not like I think Theocrat = Death either, I just thought it sounded funny.) It is always of course my great hope that someone else will find an amusing innuendo to read into something, which I freely admit. Smile No attack on ANYONE, though. I will attack to defend myself, if necessary, but (forum?)wars of aggression aren't really my scene.

    Thank you Talin. I freely and sincerely offer my apologies for my misunderstanding. Embarassed

    My euphemism steams from Saturday morning westerns. And I haven't seen -- and don't intend to see -- Brokeback Mountain either. Wink

    Again, I thank you for your clarification and apologize for any affront I may have given. Embarassed

    Nice analogy by the way. Cool

    Aw, man!

    I wish I'd been back to W.O.G. to see this contest going on sooner! Well, congrats, Mort, you made something interesting enough happen to get me to come back and post on Canonfire again!

    This got me to thinking about which is my favorite Greyhawk god and I was surprised to find I not only can't choose one -- I can't narrow my list below 15!

    Scottenkainen (and others), which gods are your favorites? 15 seems like a pretty long list, but to each his own, I s'pose. If this would be considered thread derailment, I can start one up elsewhere, but, you know, since we're all here and thinking about GH gods, it seems as good a place as any.

    Mine are, in no particular order: Olidammara, Rudd, Lirr, Lydia, Fharlanghn, Mhyriss, Zodal. These are the deities I would worship, were I native/transported to Oerth. I also like Hextor and Heironeous (and I totally dig the heretical sect that worships them both), and have recently become a bit of a fan of Vecna. Hextor and Heironeous are fun because under certain circumstances, one could count a Hextor-worshipper as an ally; under others, a Heironean could be a terrifying foe. I've never been in a game which featured Pholtus, but I'm sure he and his clergy could also fill an interesting ally/antagonist role. I never gave much heed to Vecna before, but after my experiences in the Age of Worms campaign, I have come to understand the destructive power of secrets. Thanks, Darl Quethos, you Magnificent Bastard you.

    Hey Scott! Glad to see I have sparked your Greyhawk thinking muscles. 15 eh? Yeah I think I'd have a hard time choosing a definitive favorite too. My choices as it is are divided between comic appeal and game appeal. Thinking back, I have a bias for certain gods in the comic for various reasons(like they are easy to draw or make fun of) but there are many that I've never used or maybe just once. And half of those I'm sure I've never even touched in a game situation! Sometimes I get tired of certain deities in comic and game. I used to do alot of comic with Vecna and before that he was also in my games alot in 2e, now I hardly use him in either. Then there is Iuz, who I do like, but I overused him so much in my campaigns that it led to his general exlusion in the comic from the very start.
    I think overall I like the neutral deities more than evil or good, and possibly good the least. And further muddling the choices If I were like Talin and had to actually worship one, I'd love to revere one of the quasi-deities before most full gods. Who wouldn't want to be a swordsman of Kelanen or a gun toting paladin of Murlynd?
    Now if I could BE a greyhawk deity that's easy. I'd be Norebo. ;)

    My list

    Beory, Pelor, Rao, Zilchus, Cyndor, Wee Jas, Celestian, Delleb, Ehlonna, Fharlaghn, Gesthai, Heironeous, Hextor, Pholtus, and Zagyg -- and I didn't even think about quasi-deities! As for why those, I'm saving that for a blog entry.

    It should be pointed out that Lendor was showing more skin than Wee Jas, but in the end that was not enough.

    What GH diety would I actually worship? Hmm...

    I have also always been kind of partial to Wee Jas' lesser-known brother,
    Hugh Jas.

    Scott: Cyndor, that's a rare choice. Why him if I may ask?

    Kirt: Hah! Yes indeed Lendor does show more skin. Hm, I wonder if his hair was always white?

    Hugh Jas? She does not speak of him, he is a stain on her reputation.
