IRON MODDER 9 REPORT
« on: September 05, 2005, 03:47:03 PM »
ALLEZ MODDING!

The Chairman had high hopes when he announced those famous words to the assembled throngs of Infinity Stadium. Yet Iron Modder 9 was truly star-crossed. Not one contestant properly completed the unapologetically tricky assignment, "Being the Bhaalspawn Means Never Saying You're Sorry," in time to be properly considered by our judges!

A clearly shaken Chairman addressed the stadium when it became clear that the day's majesty had been diminished.


Attaining enlightenment means moving ever forward, and not dwelling on the scheduling conflicts and missteps of the past. I bow graciously to Iron Modders Katalyn and Cliffette, who despite bugfixing and time zone challenges, did their best to complete an entry within the alloted span.

No entries were scored because none were completed and functional within the 4-hour time limit.

IRON MODDER CLIFFETTE

Known to dabble in the Iron Modding arts, our Australian entrant braved a harsh wake-up call to essay the Chairman's choice cut. Yet tragically, she miscalculated and submitted 58 minutes past the deadline.

This overdue take-out order was a fried hash of pre-written quest content, garnished only in the closing section with the theme ingredient. Players may wish to sample the flavors of deception and chicanery as they outwit the owner of the Athkatlan circus in a battle to drive the run-down carnival out of town. A visual glitch in the area modification results in a hypnotic on-screen blur, not unlike the kind one might experience after a sour flask of sake. A bald-faced attempt to pander to the vanity of the Iron Modder judges was certainly not unnoticed. One suspects the Chairman and his close advisors consider Cliffette appealing to the eye as well.

IRON MODDER KATALYN

Our first-time entrant delivered a tantalizing sample of the kind of quick-thinking that makes an Iron Modding champion. The melancholy theme returned a bittersweet dish as a Bhaalspawn contemplates the infinite, unable to shake a pursuer who she feels wishes to punish her for acts of mindless rage committed under Bhaal's influence. Her shadow seeks merely to discuss and forgive her acts, but alas, her palate is dead to the sauce of absolution. There is closure, but no cleansing of the palate here, as Mona's desserts were not, as such, just.

These two entries are now available in the DL pack at http://www.pocketplane.net/ironmod . I hear there's at least one more IM9-themed mod still under development, which I will add when it/they are ready.
