Finally, the nominees for the Second Annual Deadlies are in!

I didn't receive many nominations altogether, so essentially, if your hold was nominated for something, it made it in. Unfortunately, I had to make a judgement calls regarding the nominees. I added in a couple of would-be snubs that I could think of and removed JtRH from the running for hold of the year, since I decided it would be more appropriate for this contest to reward the casual architects. Sorry, Caravel. I'm assuming you guys don't mind, since you can conjure rank points out of thin air. Oh, and the nomination for my hold isn't a conflict of interest, I swear.

Two categories received only one nomination apiece, so I'm pleased to announce that two prizes will be given out immediately!

Best Visual Design in a hold goes to...

Uhm... okay.

Thanks. I, err... worked for this award. Hard. Ish. And I appreciate the fact that I was nominated. I still work upon my dungeon, and I eagerly await the day I have finished it.

Wow! Mike should be up here too to accept this award, but I am very flattered that people voted "I Saw Isosceles" as the winner for best voice acting.

Congrats to all the winners and nominees, and much thanks to our excellent host, RoboBob. I know we all thought he'd botch it, but amazingly, the everything worked out okay.

-Erik

That's cool, I actually won in something. Although I guess it looses some of the impressiveness if you mention I won against a clock by only one vote.

I was a little surprised that someone nominated Simon's Dungeon. I thought it would've been too old for the nominations already.

14 months. Huh. It's sure a while since I made my last big hold. Expect something in the future, though...

Larry and Sergenth, I distributed your rank points in the thread corresponding to your respective holds.

If I forgot to award anybody their points, speak now or forever hold your peace.

Thx Robobob, I was wondering how my rank points went up all of the sudden :smile

It's nice to look back at some of the great work people have contributed. I loved working on Perfection with the Caravel team and it's doubly fun that the hold has gone over so well. Cheers :thumbsup
