The polls are open now until midnight (Central) between Thursday, April 3rd and Friday, April 4th.

Remember: you're voting for your favorite based on any criteria you think appropriate. Not necessarily just who would win in a fight.

Here's a recap of round 3:

Lich Regional
1 Lich def 5 Minotaur 196-92
2 Displacer Beast def 3 Succubus 148-138

Gelatinous Cube Regional
1 Gelatinous Cube def 4 Blink Dog 196-97
3 Illithid def 7 Goblin 169-125

Troll Regional
1 Troll def 4 Hydra 164-129
2 Orc def 3 Doppelganger 157-131

Owlbear Regional
1 Owlbear def 4 Skeleton 173-119
3 Umber Hulk def 2 Rust Monster 143-140


Biggest Blowouts:
1 Lich defeats 5 Minotaur with 68.1% of the vote, 196-92
1 Gelatinous Cube defeats 4 Blink Dog with 66.9% of the vote, 196-97

Closest Contests:
3 Umber Hulk defeats 2 Rust Monster with 50.5% of the vote, 143-140
2 Displacer Beast defeats 3 Succubus with 51.7% of the vote, 148-138


Other Story Lines:
Ones and twos and threes, oh my! - If you thought last round was filled with heavyweights, just look below. The top seeds have kept on rolling.
3 Rounds, 3 tight fights - In the first round it was the Rakshasa by 1 vote over the Purple Worm. In the second round it was the Blink Dog by 2 votes over the Otyugh. This round the Umber Hulk came back in the last day to beat last year's 4th place finisher by a mere 3 votes. Neither of the previous two close winners had enough energy to win their next match. Can the Umber Hulk buck this trend?

Many thanks again to our color commentator
