Best contest ever??

Also, why no minmaxers? Who cares what their stats in social interaction or wisdom are as long as they max charisma and dexterity! :P

*also recalls CA is single right now*

Is it warm in here or is that just me? ;;)

In my experience, minmaxers have a bad habit of forgetting who's suppose to be running the game. Though I realized a better annoying PC type for the context of this contest so...edited.

You expected something else? :p Although I confess the "together" was a last minute addition to the title, wasn't thinking about the three word thing.

Fortuitously, "Storm of Eyes" fits nicely into the title requirement.

Although I think a lot of people probably weren't around for my Elder Cave personna - mostly posting in this contest because I can. Trying to reconnect, people! :D

I think you're somewhat over the 35-word limit, Paul. :D

Ah, hell. :( I'll change it, but that may mean rewriting the entire thing.
EDIT!!! Ok, done - without rewording the entry. I cannot believe how tough it was to think of a 3-word Star Wars quote (that could be re-interpreted into a Lonely-Hearts ad headline). #:-s

Somehow I missed the word count rule until MMD pointed it out, so I've decided to withdraw my entry until I can come up with a more concise entry that doesn't violate the 35-word limit. Hopefully I'll think of a way to do it without compromising the character's development AND make the deadline.
