I had a lot of fun doing this. I uploaded my entry to the Setting section of the repository: Geeks vs. Nerds. A war like no other. Oh yes, it is epic. I'm tempted to develop it further. Once it's reviewed and posted, I think you all will enjoy it.

The "judges" (that's me and Paul, which is why I didn't mention any of our posts during War Week) will deliberate for a day and then announce the winners of "fabulous" prizes!

Whew! They're finally gone. Off to see Steffan and play some boring game called "High Frontier."
Leaving me in charge!
You would not BELIEVE the whirlwind around this place the past week or so. This year Mom and Dad decided to go all out with the tree covered with cat toys and people coming and going and lots of boxes with lovely bows to play with! Dunno why they kept hissing at me and my bro' Grey Ghost every time we joined in the fun with the tree! And the people! First there was Mom's Birthday, then "Christmas Eve" (all the wonderful boxes and fun bows went away!), then "Christmas Day" where we all got to eat leftover ham, then a lot of grumpy days where Mom and Dad did stuff on their computers ALL DAY with no chance for me to get online! Something about a new software launch over at http://researchware.com ...
Anyhow I think Mom and Dad forgot all about the War Week thing. They were saying things like "how can we choose" and "why on earth did you decide the prizes would be gold, silver, and bronze, so we have to rank them?!?" and "I'll take care of it tomorrow...."
So now when Mom logs in tomorrow she'll see my post (she always checks the "What's New" page at http://fudgerpg.com/about/about-fudgerp … -here.html and be reminded that people are waiting for their prizes!
Aren't I a good Fudge kitty mascot?
We could use more kitties like you. :-D
I thought I heard that there were supposed to be four prizes, with the "grand prize" being a set of all three sets of olympic dice. Don't know where I heard that, but since there are four people being considered, maybe that would be something to add. :-) Just a thought.
