    No surprises. With @Bowser support, it was always a forgone conclusion!

    Ah, but nothing like having the mighty Nightbringer as your patron, eh? ;)

    When you're as foolhardy sure of yourself as I am, you're sure to convince at least one other person of your presumed awesomeness!

    It is awesome to see we have already got 12 voters to read the stories :)

    only a 2 votes lead, so possibly not decided yet.

    Grrr, Imrahil

    I reckon you should read the fine print.

    Also, perhaps you can grace us with a review?

    I did. It just seems to me that the winner is already clearly delineated here. More of a conversational point than a desire to end the contest ;)

    I just about managed to get my entry in before real-life exploded. I'll give it a shot though.

    Well, with a last minute vote and a 3 pts lead, we only have to know the name of the author of "The Tale of..."


    (and of course, the names of everyone else!)

    So what have we learned so far:
    • Chaos Dwarf titled stories win!
    • @Bowser endorsed stories win!

    Imagine if @Bowser endorsed a Chaos Dwarf titled store?! Or more intriguingly, what would happen if a Chaos Dwarf titled story was in a field where another story was endorsed by @Bowser?

    I was wondering how I was winning, but now I know Killer Angel wasn't in the contest, it all makes sense!

    All the other articles were fantastic, don't think I deserve it! To be fair to Bowser, I think he was equally nice about everyone, so I'm not sure I would call it an endorsement of a single entry. Wonderful to have you back, bane of plumbers!

    I did endorse it first, then came back for more reviews, but in all honesty I think you deserved the win. Amazing job on this, and congrats on your well earned victory.

    Congratulations @thedarkfourth with the win, it was a great story and I liked it a lot.

    For me this is a first time second place :)
    Thanks all for the votes

    Congrats @thedarkfourth! A forum literary giant returns to his prime!

    And I had a feeling that @Scalenex was the writer of the Westhammer story. Hard luck pal, but keep it coming, I always like to read a Westhammer story!

    @Lizards of Renown I honestly thought yours was the best personally, I have a recurring mental image of David Suchet as a Skaven now thanks to you :p (though I was disappointed not to see Poirat's faithful assistant Captain Rastings and comrade Chief Inspector Snapp in the story - perhaps they will feature in a sequel!)
