Final Cut - The winner is among you:

Supreme Art:

Diego (Odin Shafer) - a true miniature concept, just waiting to be used!
Grave Girl (Nicholas Volker) - classy, spooky, cartoony. Plus for the bad hair!
Turbulence (Tomohiro Itakura) - classic, oldschool type of a superhero. Great sculpting!
White Ogre (Resistance/Etienne) - raw brutality! Killer Croc meets Solomon Grundy!

And the winner is..... White Ogre just barely beating Diego! We had a long fight over this one. While Diego is clearly superior in design and its wholeness, White Ogre trumped it him with its undeniable superhero feel.


Supreme Fluff:

Acorn/Father Oak (Devon Peterson) - great synergy and a nice take on a classic theme without too many straight forward associations.
Micky the Monster (Todd - Tottengraber) - major plus for the fluff that manifests in an interesting gameplay!
White Knight (Tyzaronius) - classy, funny, nerdy in a good way!
Yggradasil Brotherhood (Josh Klonowski) - well-set in Pulp City world. Complex view of a team with endless possibilities!

And the winner is... Yggdrasil Brotherhood!
The way the team blends into the Pulp City world and the way it got us spurred to create new possible Supremes (hey, how about that dwarf armorer Level 1 or the Forgotten hellish Snake?).

Supreme Rules:

Acorn/Father Oak (Devon Peterson) - with some minor tweaking, fully playable Supremes. Lots of tactical options.
Cruz (Devon Peterson)- the Actions tell you a lot about the guy's background! Storytelling through game rules +++
Grave Girl (Nicholas Volker) - classy names for the Actions, lots of popculture links.
Imezzotica (Josh Klonowski) - Queen of Blood - maybe the Actions and Traits are not the best balanced but the overall idea and the character twist (Team Power) makes her a very interesting choice.
Seduction (Joel Dela Cruz) - the idea of her Entourage of 10 models is ... seductive! Great for Agenda play, she could use some offensive Actions.

And the winner is... Acorn & Father Oak!
What can I say: it beat the opponents with its consistency. While the Brotherhood had some great ideas, it was highly unbalanced. We weren't looking for the playtested Supreme, but mostly for smart Actions that would make the Supreme unique!

Great job to all! Some really really great ideas and a lot of fun background stuff on these guys. I'm thrilled to see my own green team so highly praised.

Wow!! Thanks for the mention!!!

Good job, everyone!!

For future Supreme Genesis contests, is it okay to take your own previous idea and refine it to resubmit or does it need to be completely new?

Thanks,
Totengraber

Seriously, you don't think we WON'T steal some of the ideas???
But at least I'll give you a shout!

Next SG will be "never shown before stuff". So don't publish your best stuff. Unless, like me, you have 5 new Supremes everyday. I call it a mental d.... you know, the hard to spell word.

Distribution? :? I think I have that too... where thought are distributed among so many ideas that the randomness yields numerous possibilities all at once?... yeah, probably a bit of a stretch.

So, you're telling there'll be another Supreme Genesis where you want whole new stuff?... I think I can make it. 8)
