Kyann and Tarah Winners!

Katie informed me that she had gotten a lot of feedback from you, our readers, that you'd like to see another contest winner post done by me. I'm totally flattered and have come back for an encore drawing.

In an effort to bring back the authentic look and feel of past contest winner sessions... I tried to "get the band back together" so to speak. This proved much harder than I had anticipated. You'd think that because you created them... your creations would simply do what you told them right? Right?

I'm sure as some of our authors may attest, this isn't always the case. Many times, our characters go off on their own... and do things that totally catch us off guard! To the left you see an excerpt from a letter I got from our voting committee. I've cut out a lot of the boring legalize that filled the body of the message... but the closing of their note seemed to imply that they weren't interested in voting on winners anymore...

Not trying to be dissuaded by my failure to recruit the committee, I went in search for my buddies, the Marutachi. They, of all people, would be willing to help me out in a time of need... right?

Well, they seemed to be off "M+Ming" whatever that means. Given their past behavior with M&Ms, I'm guessing that there are little chocolate avatars out there that are in a world of hurt right now. Have you ever wondered why Crispy, the orange M&M is in a constant state of paranoia? Word is, a group of Marutachi ran into him at a club one night... and what happened next? Well, let's just say that Crispy was not a willing participant.

Ok. So no committee and no Marutachi... what the heck am I going to do now??

I sat there distraught for some hours before the solution came to me. Dice. Oh come on, don't give me that look. You know, like D&D Dice. You've gotta know about rolling dice in D&D, right? Dice! For those of you who have never played D&D or the myriad of Role-Playing games that spawned from it.. they use strangely shaped dice. (see image to left). I would roll a set of dice, specifically 5d10 (5x 10 sided dice), for each candidate and the top 3 spots would make it to the finals.

Oh wait... we actually have *3* distinct prizes this time! (Thank you KyAnn and Tarah for offering up additional prizes!)... so in this drawing there will be no final round. The top three candidates will each win! The order of the prizes will go in the order they were announced, so the sheep prize goes to the top score, KyAnn's prize goes to the 2nd highest score, and prize from Tarah will go to the person rounding out the top three.

Here is how the rolling went (in increasing order of score for dramatic effect!)
