Mmm, around the 25th. It was very quick, considering most prizes I've ever won take at least a month or more to show up. They have 100 people to send stuff to, so I'd wait a little longer before contacting $Moonbeam13.

Ah, that ol' cliche. Because no one is allowed to have any fun or any entertainment so long as there are BAD THINGS in the world. LOL.

Also, the game is about humans fighting monsters. Where that correlates to your "story" I have no idea.

That Omen- Breath Your Last Breath piece [link] was my favorite concept by far and I had hoped to see it up here, but these are nice too. I like the stylistic approach on 3rd place. Congrats!

No one is disputing you. I simply stated that I liked this concept the best. There are few topics as poignant as death.

not meant that way. I tried to indicate with the smile, but perhaps that comes across more as wise ass than tongue in cheek.
