The Kalends have passed, and with the closing of the day, the Sepia Joust closes its lists.

Two tales stand in judgment.

Upon this scroll, thou may place thy words in support of only one. Please remember to use this scroll only for voting- discussions and the like are for the Discussion scroll.

This scroll will remain open for three weeks before closing.

I plop my vote down for General Sajaru.

His choice of time period was inspired, recent enough to be vivid in the imaginations of most yet far enough away from the present to be considered historic. Atop the choice, the tale was well told, which is a pre-requisite for a champion.

His choice of viewpoint was also quite good, providing insight to the thoughts and motives of those performing the actions, which otherwise would have to be gleaned from those actions or inferred from dialogue. Most of those methods would miss that valuable insight, which makes this a particularly good viewpoint if one can pull it off- which the Gen'ral did well.

Well done!

I shall cast my vote for Terikel.

He wove a tale full of vivid description and detail about an interesting event. The characterization was excellent as well.

"Judge them not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." - Martin Luther King, Jr.
"Pick up a rifle and you change instantly from a subject to a citizen." - Jeff Cooper
"I like my enemies like James Bond likes his martinis- shaken, not stirred."

My vote must go to Terikel's tale, because it had Romans and Barbarians in it.

However, because General's tale was also excellent, I wish to forfeit my double skaldic vote and have this post tally only one point.

My vote goes to.......... Terikel's story. It had Romans (my second most favourite time period), an interesting plot and the classic Terikel style. General's story was told from a completely different viewpoint and was also intriguing, showing the character's doubts and disgust at the measures he had to take, but I had to make a very hard decision...

I must give my vote to General's tale. I enjoy it, the time period and its unique perspective.

I must also give Terikel a congratulations for his masterful tale as well. It was a hard choice- with both great submissions.
