Myth and Religion Contest Results

one month ago

Alright the results are in and I was actually surprised so many managed to get a story in. 11 out of 17 is pretty good. Would have had 12 if Wizzy hadn't fucked spectacularly.

But enough about the problems of the lesser born, here's the results. Sherbet was very fast and efficient as a judge.

And the winner is:

Celicni.

Yep, you fuckers let the crippled war criminal win. Good going guys.

But I'm sure this is the highest point of his life right now, so we'll let him have this moment.

I am pleased to say that none of you managed to do worse than the KAE interlopers. Though that was a simple enough task even for Ford's lazy ass given that one of them didn't even submit anything and the other was... Paradox.

Paradox did manage to put choices in his story this time even if he got them mixed up, so he's getting better. Watch out next contest folks, you might actualy have to put in TWO days worth of effort to beat him! (The struggle)

Here's the complete list.

1st: Celicni's 'Slavic Pagans' (6) 
2nd: DBNB's '99 Problems but a Girl Ain't One' (6) 
3rd: TypewriterCat's 'Prophetess' (5) 
4th: Gryphon's 'The Sea of Legends' (5) 
5th: Petros's 'Wrath of the Edomite' (5) 
6th: fresh_out_the_oven's 'The Gods are Angered' (4) 
7th: betaband's 'The City and the Tower' (3) 
8th: Yummyfood's 'Escaping The Pit of Sin' (3) 
9th: Axxius's 'Children of Cain' (2) 
10th: Ford's 'Whaat' (2) 
11th: Paradox_4's 'The Sins of our Fathers - part 1' (2)

Sherb was actually a pretty tough rater with nobody even getting higher than a 6. This just goes to show what happens when you have a merciless judge unswayed by particular story content and favorite themes. Or maybe you guys all just sucked that bad and he was forced to pick the least worst of the lot.

Anyway, might need to have Sherb do this all the time as I'm sure this only fueled his notorious lust for more power on here.

Also special shout out to DBNB who is proving to be one of the ones to watch for in these contests after just having entered two of them. All the first time noobs did alright too, probably most surprising was Typewriter cat, who joined fairly late and came in third.

Alright, that's it for this contest.

Congrats, all! Especially to Cel, nice job with that one.

Congratulations Cel! 
And congratulations TC! Wow, just wow.

I am also happy with my results, as I did not get last, and I managed to submit something (even though it was really really rushed). Yay, me

This contest sure had a lot of "noobs" turning in surprisingly great stories. Good for the site.

Sherb sure was quick, efficient... and ruthless. Or perhaps we all just sucked, as End said. I prefer to think it's the former.

He sure is getting more and more power on the site. Tiebreaker last time, official judge this time (and unofficial decider of who counts as relevant), what's next, admin powers?

Congrats to everyone that submitted, great shame to anybody that didn't.

I finally get a contest winner trophy, yay <3

Also now that it's been a while, my post in the previous contest results thread had a secret message in it. Read the first letter of every new paragraph.

Congrats Cel! Nice work!

Next time I will have to hire a person to hit you with a car, then I might have a chance.

Congrats to everyone else who submitted a story.  

SHAME to those who entered and did not.

Well, I just finished rating and reviewing all the entries, so I wanted to say good work to all (even paradox whose entry was less bad than his last one)  I truly enjoyed reading through them all.

It took me a day or so to get to Cel's, mostly because I got distracted by Tales from the Basement 2, which is amazing (But, don't read that one at work, it's way too funny).

Cel's story is really worth the read also.  Slavic Pagans

You and Petros have really been putting in the work to read all these and leave comments. Nice job.

And thank you.

Congratulations to all who were not SHAMED, and an extra congratulations to Celicni for winning. Reading through these was very fun, always nice to have new storygames around here, so these contests are great. Thanks End.
To anyone who submitted, you're going to want to keep your stories up for a while, or else a nightmarishly powerful penguin may eat your points.

Congratulations Celicni!

And congrats to everyone else, I guess. I’m going to try to read and review everyone’s story by the end of the week.

This is acceptable

Myth and Religion Contest Results

Yep, and you almost just accepted the shame pit.

Indeed. Anything is better than the SHAME pit. Congrats on second. I was rooting for you.

thanks, you did great too.

Now all we need is for people to actually read and rate these stories, so they can at least get ten ratings. I know leaving a comment is too much to handle for the average IQ around here, but if some of you can manage that, it would be a pleasant surprise.

EndMaster has also just released a story and if that doesn’t reach ten ratings soon, I'm just going to start mass-banning you useless fags, starting with least valuable. Because that is a horrible sin.

Starting with Ford, of course.

Somehow I'd forgotten about that, but I've rated it now. 

Myth and Religion Contest Results

Done. I only did one path and it happened to be pretty short, but I definitely liked what I read.

Good, good.

Are you pleasantly surprised yet?

It's not bad for a Warden. You're like the one person leaving comments that are commendable atm for the new contest entries.

Not bad for a Warden summarizes my existence nicely

Well Chris is a prideful Warden. Maybe you should take lessons from him.

I know I'm a bit late, but congrats to everyone who entered and especially to Celicni. Even if your story sucked, at least you didn't have to go to the pit of shame.

I know you probably meant that second sentence to be one for the general populace, rather than me specifically, but for a second I really wondered what the hell I did to you to attack me so.

I really do not recommend stargirl or other underage members read my story.

That means you, too, Peng.

May as well use this temporary revival of the thread to point out Gryphon and Petros' stories don't have 10 ratings yet. I hope someone will fix this injustice.

I'll get around to them... eventually. Currently busy with Tales 2.
