    Theme: We can do a darkness theme since some people proposed it earlier.

    Death/Demonic would be perfect. It's large enough for a lot of ideas and allows different views on how it should look.

    EDIT:

    SFX compo #2 failed because the theme was overcomplicated... I'd hate to see this competition sink and I'm hoping we'll find a theme that incites newcomers to enter. We know the "veterans" like us can find enough ideas and execute them well, but what we want to do is see what newcomers can make.

    But look how far you've come :) Well, if this theme sounds good, I'll post up the competition rules and hope to have it approved then =)

    That's pretty broad, you would be making:
    - Tornadoes
    - Hurricanes
    - Earthquakes
    - Fires

    I don't really see much we can do with that and people might be stuck with ideas again :( We should have a poll so we can add Natural Disasters and Darkness to the choices.

    How about...

    Earth
    Space / Time
    Electricity

    Maybe more later. Death sounds good.

    We already did earth, electricity is a hard theme to make because of the lack of textures in warcraft, space and time might be a bit too abstract? I really prefer death but hopefully we can do a poll to find a theme we all agree to work with.

    When was this Earth thing? I want to see it.
    (By Earth, I mean dust, sand, dirt, earthquakes, rocks, etc.)

    It was the last SFX contest. Not as successful as the first one.

    Naw, as JetFangInferno described it, Nature is more like leaf stuff, and I think Earth is more like dirt stuff :p

    Eh, I'm just being picky.

    That might be a valid thing, making SFX that would be fitting for D3. xP

    A brit too broad of a theme though considering how information we have been shown about D3 -- which isn't alot. Unless we do exactly the sfx we've seen so far in the gameplay video :p
