Okay y'all.

Here we are. We are voting on the Chaos Die right now. The Lord has lots of options, but it's mostly just names, so understand the interpretation of that name is a step I'll work with czarfunkle to determine, trying to take into account as many people's thoughts as I can with the design from the comments!

You get 1 vote on the name. Make it count!

Die Face Vote


For the die faces, we have many very fun options. You can pick as many as you like, so please start at the top, and click every one you like until you get to the bottom, then submit. I will be picking the top 6 (or more... more on that later) voted faces to go on the die. If one or more of the top choices are very similar, I may choose the more popular one and skip to another highly voted face to make sure each face does something unique.

I will give this until Monday, then I will come back with the results!

Thanks for taking part everyone, this has been so much fun-- please share the pre-order store with friends and family who might have missed the campaign so we can get a bit closer to the extra community copies and funds.

I have a question, I had an issue with my payment method and it looks like I had to almost re-pledge…? Will I still receive my Lord Oracle cards, since I originally pledged in the first 24 hours.

I've been contemplating this ALL DAY... asking outside opinions and everything (good promotion!?) I think I need to sleep on it before I make my final decision. PLEASE don't close the poll early and keep it up through monday 🙏🏼 this means so much to me and some names fit really well with the faces I voted on, others work great with ones I didn't. There's so much to consider. 🤯 I love your work 7 - please let us have another day to ponder 😅💕🙌🏼🎲

I've narrowed it down to the shifting sands, the thing among reflections and the whirlwind... guess I'm gonna vote in now :3 ⏳🌪️ 🪞

Man, I kinda really don't want it to be the Trickster but I fully agree on the rest of the highest rankings

I’m in that same boat, actually! I was reading through folks’ submissions and read some amazing reasons why it shouldn’t/couldn’t be a trickster. Here’s leaving it to the fates (and chaos 😄)!

Codo's suggestion below to do a second round of voting for the few highest ranked options from this poll could help with this. It would allow for if there's an option that was most popular by single votes, but very unpopular amongst those who voted for the other options.

I believe you may have forgotten to include the poll on the die faces? There's only one for named currently. Unless you were planning to post a separate update with the die face poll in that. Definitely excited to see the options! There were a few names too that were really interesting in this poll. I was pretty split between The Void and The Universe tbh.

You just need to click on the bolded words “die face vote” to get to the voting page.

Ahhh okay, I see now. Thank you for clearing that up for me! Definitely a ton of good options here, too. I think my favorite was the d20.

Little confused...the update said: >>You can pick as many as you like, so please start at the top, and click every one you like until you get to the bottom, then submit. But the poll is only letting me select one choice before submitting. Is that how it's supposed to work?

You can pick as many as you like on the “die face vote” but you only get to pick one for the name on the lord of chaos card.

Oooh! That would be cool if they could have a ranked voting thing. I mean, worst case scenario, could use something like the "Voting on faces" vote system there to just make it so folks can pick 3 choices out of the list, since that'd allow for room of "I like this, but I also like this..." and then ultimately, whatever DOES win from that vote is clearly the one folks would at least most agree on. Either way, I know when it came to the faces, a lot of them sounded pretty cool, but I figured that it best to keep it simple, for my own choices. Move a die, re-roll a die, remove, add, a complete re-roll... And then the Point. I still like the Point face the most, purely because it allows that personal touch from the person alone. If the chaos die was drawn anyway, it's already meant to throw a wrench into things, so might as well see how it goes!

Hm... I know it seems like doing one round of voting might be best, but I think it might be best to do a second or even a third voting round. Not with all the same choices, but rather by trimming down the "Winning votes", like taking the top 5 or top 3 at the end, and do a second vote. Primarily because since ya only get one vote, it ain't account for if people are stuck between two choices and WOULD choose the other, if not for the former. D: So as they trim down, if one thing they want goes away, it'd give them a chance to at least go for something else they'd like in it's place. Or perhaps I'm thinking too much on it, and a single vote is for the best! All the same, while I know I put my suggestion for that Kamaitachi/wind weasel thing in the comments, seeing "El-Ahrairah", a prince of rabbits... >.> I totes wanna see a Bunny lord.

That could be cool, if time and resources allow for it! Perhaps we should request for Backerkit to add a ranked choice voting system in the future lol. That'd be even more representative!

I very much agree. Especially with the amount of options for names being 24, I would encourage there be a second poll with the top 6 or so. That way if people voted on one that didn't get high enough, they still have a chance to vote for a different one they'd prefer of the ones that did make it to the second round. I definitely feel as though one round of the die faces is good enough, though, as we can choose multiple there. And I'm definitely curious about what Seven means about potentially more than 6 die faces. I'm excited in general to see how this turns out.

I was a bit late filling thr survey out, but everything showed up alright, and I could add the planned stuff I wanted to! So far so good! And omg, these titles... I have my final vote, but dang, it was difficult. I wished I could choose 3 (max).
