Nice job Dirge, loved the story! it was definitely your best yet!
Just some food for thought, maybe next time if its just going to be the 3 of us we should just do an open share instead of hiding behind a visage of anonymity? We cans still have a winner and grading, but maybe its more of an open workshop style were we post and do some serious critique. It bit more of a discussion....just a thought.
And if more people join next time, we can do this style of write-off?
