So I read all three stories that've won. Both 'Breaking of a Warrior' and 'An End to Hunger' are great, and distinct from each other - one a conventional tale of an event significant to the game, the other a reflection on the world and events of the game from a very different perspective. However, I have no idea what 'Mires of Time' is even about, it just seems like poetic abstraction piled upon poetic abstraction. The land the protagonist washed up on isn't Wraeclast, nor does it really seem to be maps. I can only guess that he must be inhabiting the Memory Nexus from Synthesis. But as to what the story is meant to be about, or to signify, I'm as at sea as he seems to be.


I loved 'An End to Hunger', definitely my favorite entry. The way Kitava was characterized and (to a degree) humanized reminded me a lot of Malazan Book of the Fallen and

the Crippled God


I'm pretty sure that 'Mires of Time' is supposed to be about Harbingers. The way the land is described ("Endless Sands, ashen with mist, seamlessly come together with the ocean just as grey, leading nowhere.") fits the aesthetic of the Beachhead map. The mountain the narrator walks towards is the boss room, the "otherworldly spirals and wild edged shapes" are the patterns on the ground in there. The "strange device" is the Stargate and the "Blue King" with a "squalid crown" is the huge Harbinger that comes out of the gate at the very end of the encounter.
interresting ideas! woow
The music cover entries are quite good. Many congratulations to all!
