OK so after several emergency projects, hours of grueling work, and a personal crisis that I had to work through - I have FINALLY shipped your guys pieces out. Thank you all for being so incredibly (seriously, INCREDIBLY) patient.

Please enjoy and post pictures if you enjoy them!

Ok folks quick update involving the winners;

Looks like I'll have time to build your winning pieces on 11/22. Expect shipping within a week or two after that. Again, I'll be sending tracking #s via email once I have them.

Thanks again so much to all that participated =)

Hey Jchunick,

Here is a link to my once upon a time thread where I posted a few pics of my original modified walls (with Red LEDs for the Chamber of Sorrows).

My designs have improved since then but that's the rough idea.

What a generous person and a fantastic idea! I would be ok with having a sticky thread under the Gaming section where everyone could post their puzzles (along with the CR of each).

This way all of us would have a "Go To" place to grab some awesome ideas for the adventures we create.

For anyone who is interested, here is the floor inscription that I sent to Fizzik for the alignment puzzle.

I really enjoyed the contest honestly. I'm glad a few folks enjoyed the ideas I put forth, sharing cool ideas is definitely part of the fun of the hobby. One of Thwick's ideas got me thinking about fun ways to design puzzles based in part on the party's own antics over the course of the campaign. Perhaps even rip off Final Fantasy one where it involves time travel and turns out that the heroes of today are actually the legendary heroes of yesteryear? This way the puzzles were actually designed by someone close to the party in the past to make sure only the party could get through them to get to the object or device that sends them back to fulfill their destiny...

So many neat ideas to play with... they say there is nothing new under the sun, but if that's true the trick is clever and novel arrangements, right?

EVERYONE WINS!

I knew i should have submitted my idea!

Hats of to Fizzikz for a fun contest.

My idea (or the best i could come up with during a crazy week) was that each time you lit a column, the two adjacent to it's opposite would turn off/on. The goal would be to create a pattern that they had found/seen somewhere else in the dungeon. These type of puzzles work great as electronic or video games, but at the table they are tedious.

That is why i thought Lord Dust's idea was so good - more of a story excercise than a brain teaser
