Big congrats to AzBaz and Ogre11 for winning first and second place. I haven't quite had a chance to read the rest of the entries, but those two will be on the top of my list.
Thanks to the judges for going through all of that reading, and a special thanks to Berka for hosting all of this.
The only thing I'm left wondering is what the individual rankings were...not that the judges have to share them, of course.
This is what I had.
1. Frameshift by AzBaz
2. Gemstone Swords by Eric
3. A Chosen Hero by Ebon
4. Spy Mission by Ogre
5. The Exploits of Fail Man by Royal Ghost
Now the funny thing is I actually meant to put Rom’s story for 5th place, but for whatever reason I forgot and put Royal’s story instead and didn’t realize it until after I sent the picks to Berka.
I thought about sending Berka another PM to make the switch, but then I figured it probably wasn’t going to make a difference one way or another.
In any case, Rom probably would have gotten first place from me if his story had been longer and I think I must be the only person who likes Eric’s stories. I think I’ve had him in third or second place for every recent contest he’s participated in.
This made me kind of happy and then kind of sad.
Well I am glad at least one person likes my stories and if I have the time, I will take one day to work on Gemstone Swords as it is the closest of all my stories to be full finished. Of course, there is plenty of work to be done but for now, it stays up until I find a day to take it down and patch it up.
Congratuverylations to Saika, Ebon, Ogre, and a huge congratulations to AzBaz. You all made wonderful storygames!
Congrats to AzBaz and Ogre! This was a really close one. And well done to everyone else who participated, I really enjoyed reading everyone's stories.
Nice job to everyone who placed in the competition!
Congrats to everyone who placed!
Congratulaaaaaaaaaaations! ^_^ It's been fun watching everyone go through this contest~ I hope ya'll join the next contest. *nods* I will read them soon (after I finish the ones from last contest... *mumbles*).
Though there is not much point to doing this, I'll still congratulate the submitting writers and the judges. Many of 2017's best storygame came out of this contest. :)
Nonetheless, I believe first and second place are fully aware of their grand works.
AzBaz, enjoy your shiny trophy.
Oh and a big thanks to @mizal because of her motivating me. It was her boasting about her taking first place that spurred me into action, and thus I was able to contribute to the sight in a more direct way than commenting on stories. For this I tip my hat to mizal.
Ayy. ^_^ Nice work!
