    I'm still trying to work out which I like best. Going to have to read them all again.

    @Martin. Names were revealed otherwise guild mates could just vote for their mate in secret. This I'd more open and removes that. I'm going to vote for the best story regardless of who wrote it. Just nice to know for credit sake.

    Yeah. What would stop a guild member from revealing their entries within the guild, anyways? Nothing.

    Still, I explicitly told my guild to vote for whomever they wanted. As much as I would love the chance to do this, I don't think it should be based on guild affiliation. This is important, not some guild-related event, and it's important for SE that the most popular WORK is claimed the winner. I'm just excited to even be given the opportunity. Time to work on the next part of this

    I liked Preybird's submission the best. Of the 5 it was the only one that drew me in and kept me wanting more. I liked XanteseZerylliom's 2nd best as I appreciated the way he incorporated a likely in game use of Aramia into her story, quite seamlessly.

    All 5 however were better written and more polished than my humble little story. So, props to all who made teh top 5. Well done all!

    I had to be careful not to reveal anything from PFG, lol.

    And second to Preybird? I'll take it, lol! Especially considering the limited time I had to devote to this. I have to say the competition is tough. I enjoyed all of these entries, so I imagine it's difficult to limit your choice to just one.

    No, I was doing so well in the polls at first!

    No, seriously, I'm honored to have made it this far, especially since I may have had a lot of time to brainstorm ideas but only a couple hours to write it. And if I were to vote for someone besides myself, it would be for either Preybird or Xantese, so I don't feel too bad being behind them.
    Congratulations to Preybird for designing my Avatar!

    I've voted, and for me PreyBirds has the edge. Fantastic take on the Elementals. Second best in my opinion was animals. Look forward to more writing from you.

    In truth, top 5 were a great top 5. Very difficult to pick the winner.

    Given that the poll question is:

    "Who should work with the DT to create an official piece of Lore?"

    I voted for Preybird. I think his other fan fiction stories in the forum are better than what he submitted for the contest but I still think he would be the best choice to add to the lore of the game.

    I've read all the other entries and I enjoyed them all. However, I like Preybird's writing style the best and I can't fault his grammar or use of punctuation in any of his stories. I'm confident that if he wins, he will make a great contribution to the Shadow Era lore.

    I'm just disappointed that we've only got 25 votes in total so far. Are people too lazy to read?

    Preybird deserves this for his many contributions to SE fanfic and intimate understanding of its lore. I'm just happy to be here next to all these great authors (and those who weren't chosen as well--seems like the DT had a hard choice from what I've read!).

    As a side note, what if Preybird wins WA? (Did I miss the announcement or something?) Wouldn't it be a bit redundant to "work with the DT to make an official piece of lore" when he's IN the DT? Just a thought
