    Alright guys, I've started reading your stories. I won't comment on what I've read right away, just to make sure you have no way to guess who gets the most points. :D

    Update: I've read 3 of 5 stories so far (I'm a bit slower than I expected). The last ones will be read today or tomorrow, and afterwards I'll send my short reviews to Beldaran. Can't promise anything about when we'll be done, though.

    Ok I finally got some time to throw the darn victory banner/sock drawer liner for the winner together:

    View attachment 8372

    I'll put the winner's username (and maybe avatar depending on how hard it is to draw) in the blank spot in the middle.
    My apologies to whoever has to endure having such a thing in their home.... lol :D

    Believe me it's not...lol! It's meant to be sort of like a gag gift to remember the contest so it's kinda cheesy and tacky :D
    If I could think of a real (ie: good) prize, I'd send the winner that instead.

    Aww thanks for the positive comments Bel and Firi. One of you may end up with it then if the winner doesn't want it! *laughs*

    The victory banner looks nice. I like it. I may have to board an airship and pirate it. Oh, who am I kidding, I'd get called into work before I was halfway to the store to buy a peg leg and cutlass....

    Beldaran and Firiath are judging Druid and I think they said they're posting results at the end of november. Check the thread Firiath started regarding how the stories are judged for more info (that thread's also here in the original works folder). Also, I think anybody can comment on the stories if they want to.

    Just feel free to comment on each other's stories. We'll certainly be done by the end of November. Reading is easy, but rating is a bit more difficult - or trying to be just! :p
