Update on the prizes:
-------------------------
I've managed to secure three different prizes, and I'm working on a fourth. They are:
  • a £25 gift certificate to the EN Publishing store
  • maybe a set of Pumpkin Pie Spice dice? (I haven't given up on this idea yet, stay tuned)
  • a custom mini from HeroForge.com
  • a gift certificate to Penzy's Spices, good for a 2oz. jar of Pumpkin Pie Spice
The first-place winner of the contest will get first pick of the prizes. Second place gets second pick, etc., until all of the prizes are gone. I'll add more prizes to the list as they become available (and if you'd like to donate a prize to this contest, DM me). More prizes means more winners!

Alas, the "pumpkin pie spice dice" isn't going to happen. It's just too expensive: I was thinking a set of dice would be worth $10-15, but that set in particular costs ten times that amount. Don't get me wrong; I love you guys and I want you to have nice things--but I'm not Melon Tusk.

On the up-side, a new prize has fallen into my lap! An anonymous donor has provided me with a Starbucks Gift Card, good for several authentic Pumpkin Spice Lattes at any of their 32,000 worldwide locations.

Here's my official entry.

Farmer Kemp's Pumpkin Harvest
A set of four downloadable .STL minis for your tabletop game

Farmer Kemp has been the laughingstock of the Threshold Pumpkin Growing Contest for as long as anyone can remember. But things are going to be different this year, yes indeed! Ever since he brought that strange amulet home, voices have been whispering dark and forbidden secrets to him. For months, the voices imparted useful advice and tips for growing pumpkins: a recipe for a special fertilizer he needed...a handy tip for weaving bones into the vines...ancient rites and forbidden sacrifices under the full moon...
Yes, this year's Pumpkin Contest is going to be different. He will finally get the recognition he deserves. The whole town will finally notice him, they will finally praise him. Or else.

I present to you a set of downloadable, ready-to-print .STL files for a set of four 3D minis that I created with HeroForge!

Unfortunately, I can't post the .STL files themselves to ENWorld because they aren't in a supported media format (I can't attach .zip files), and hyperlinking my contribution to a different thread/website is against this contest's rules. So here are the screenshots, and if you would like to download the .STL files for yourself, send me a direct message.

Well I'm a big dummy. Uploading zip files onto EN World is super easy if I had just read the instructions and learned where to upload them. They belong in the Resources section of the site, not in some rando Community forum thread.

Ah well, live and learn. I can't edit my post without disqualifying it, but maybe I can help people who want to submit their own downloadable goodies for this contest. If you have some resources you'd like to share, click on the "Resources" menu at the top of this (and every) page. Scroll down, then click on "Downloads" and it will take you to the Resources page. Click on the orange "Add Resource..." button, select a category, and you're off to the races.

And if you want to download the .STL files for my entry, just go to the Resources page. They're right there at the top of the list.

This contest is completely free and open to all...everyone of all levels of experience and writing ability are invited to participate.

After the deadline, I'll compile all of the entries and put them in a public poll.

Folks will be able to vote for up to three entries, and the entries with the most votes will win.

Me? As a food, I love it. I use it year-round in every recipe that calls for cinnamon: oatmeal cookies, cinnamon rolls, you name it. Years ago I was baking an apple pie but discovered too late that I didn't have any cinnamon...I used pumpkin pie spice instead, and now I can never go back.

As a cultural phenomenon, I'm....confused, mostly. I mean, it's a tasty and aromatic spice blend, but it's just one of several in my pantry. (Why no love for curry spice or chili powder?) But I'm not gonna hate on someone else's good time: life is short, let folks enjoy stuff.
Pumpkin pie is associated strongly with US Thanksgiving, and to a lesser extent, Christmas.
It's a seasonal marker and association, which reinforces it.

there's plenty of love of curries and chili... but it's not seasonal.

In the case of chili, it's vaguely summerish - beans and peppers store dried indefinitely, and meat can be jerked to keep for upwards of a year.
And yes, I do consider beans in a chili-based sauce chili.
And yes, I do consider meat in a chili-based sauce chili.
And I prefer both together in a chili based sauce, with some onions, garlic, maybe also shredded or finely diced parsnip and/or shredded potato, but no tomatoes...
Yeah, I'm weird. Deal with it.

likewise, curries are not usually seasonal... but the proteins are.
With some exceptions: Jackfruit curry, pumpkin spice curry. Since these two are fruit based... (Yeah, pumpkin's a fruit. So are the rest of the squash. And tomatoes.)
Yeah, my local thai place has a thanksgiving through christmas pumpkin spice curry sauce. Jackfruit is also seasonal, but I don't know the season. I like both, but not more than Neng's green curry. And I can usually tell when she's not in the kitchen. (I like it with extra lemongrass even more!)
