Contest time Hunams of the world!

Ahh, vague omens and mysterious portents. Tangled webs of fate intertwined with the branches of destiny, blown by the capricious winds of happenstance. News, news....uh, actually there is some news!

Sorry all I know I've dropped the ball getting this Contest going, been super busy, got a new job, got married and I am literally leaving on my honeymoon in a few hours.
So .. just briefly, ill touch on some details.

I'll run the contest till say end of September give everyone lots of time to get their submissions in.

I will use the term loosely, this will be an Art contest, i use the term very broadly, music can be art, comics etc..

The Prize is a sealed copy of "Groombridge Log" :mrgreen: :mrgreen: by Tiberian

I will follow up on my return =D

Have fun during your honeymoon! Remember, marriage is a trap invented by an evil umgah prankster.
I'll expect the contest to start somewhere before christmas.

I like that we're a fandom of mostly older dudes with marital events/problems going on, and not a bunch of virginal nerds with too much time on our hands... don't quote me on this though. Have fun Scotty. I ate too many eggs today and now I feel a bit sick

It's hard fact to admit...but your right! We are a bunch of older dudes surfing the web with older dudes considerations.

It's a refreshing change from the brainless banter you see on... say, the league of legends forum. More mature games obviously have a more mature fanbase.

I wonder what JayChant is doing nowadays, lol.

I vaguely recall that name...Maybe from my first stint here...

If I recall, he was a bit trollish right?

Also, I play League of Legend and it is THE most terrible community ever. There are a few outliers (Like me), but most of the time the in game and out game attitude is just terrible! I only play with friends now.

I barely play games anymore and I don't feel like re-learning. Plus, since I only play with friends, I'm never with the obnoxious crowd.

I mostly watch the competitive scene tho and I have an agreement with my girlfriend that I can play all night long with my friends on Wednesday.

I used to play DOTA when it was hosted in Warcraft 3 tho.
