    Might makes right. You either have the ability to do something or you do not. Hence the NIGHTBRINGER's confusion in regards to this concept of morally that you speak of. :joyful:

    So you're unable to read the short stories? That's a shame... I blame the school system. :p

    Not really my cup of tea.

    Let us not suggest that there exists an inability to do something, when the real culprit is an unwillingness to do so. Reading the stories would take time that I would simply rather invest elsewhere. But to each their own. Also, with my inherent Chaos Dwarf bias, it would make little difference.

    Of course. Sorry, I was just trying to play along with the joking.

    No worries. No offense taken. It never came off as having any ill intent to it.

    I'm sure he'll try to join again under a new pseudonym, he shows up about every six months.

    Can you imagine if there was a 3-way tie yet again?

    Is it wrong that I suddenly have a desire for there to be a 3-way tie? Maybe I can be drawn into this fluff short story thing! :D

    Nice try. I don't believe you. You get no more olive branches or enticements from me.

    I am convinced that you are not going to become a regular reader/participant on the Fluff Forum and will not change my views without hard evidence to the contrary.

    Well, in all fairness, I hardly think that you are going to stick the three writers into a gladiatorial style fighting arena where the last man standing wins the short story contest.

    So let's call them both long shots... with one long shot being highly contingent on the other.

    So Scalenex was being disingenuous about the arena and Nightbringer was disingenuous about reading things. We might as well rip the metaphorical band aid off entirely.

    You've had a taste of the raw stuff of the Short Story contest... which is Chaos itself...

    I don't think it will happen again. Anyway, i expect the gap between the various pieces to be minimal.

    I must plead ignorance. I always thought that the Short Story contest was exclusively about writing, reading and voting on Lizardmen fan fiction. I had no idea that actual gladiatorial duels to the death between the writers was a possibility. :wideyed:
