Is this a "graphical" contest or is the a "written" contest? I was trying to find the winners of the last contest, expecting to see visual designs, but could find only words.

@Qhuenta: It is indeed a Game Design contest, not a visual one. This allows everyone to join, and not just those with artistic skills^^

Can I ask a couple of questions?

- Can we apply debuffs as part of the item? (to balance out a stronger effect)

- When we add the effect, can it cover multiple, say attributes (eg: +1 agility, -1 wisdom), or is it just the one per (within reason, of course)?

- When describing enchantment effects, do we just cover the effect, or can we add some fluff (eg: when weilding this item, the user becomes inspired, and certain that their cause is right. +1 Persuasion)


Overdoing everything since I was born. This is no exception

I hear you. At some later point a visual contest could be fun though. I'll keep following the project. Good luck to the developers and to all the contestants.

Absolutely

- When we add the effect, can it cover multiple, say attributes (eg: +1 agility, -1 wisdom), or is it just the one per (within reason, of course)?

If it's a drawback, I'd say go for it. Just don't use one effect to say +2 STR. +3 DEX & +2 INT

- When describing enchantment effects, do we just cover the effect, or can we add some fluff (eg: when weilding this item, the user becomes inspired, and certain that their cause is right. +1 Persuasion)

You can add some fluff :)
