Desk of the Editor By: Kuah
What is the good word? Awards! Thats what it is. Shingo spent
a good part of a day counting up all the votes and there are
more than one 'shocker' this time around.
Please remember that you all had a vote and a giant thank you
to the masses that used it.
The CoD Realms awards were a blast to work on last year, and
the fun of seeing the final results were back this year.
If you get the chance, take the time to thank Shingo who took
a lot of his time collecting and counting your votes.
I want to take a moment to thank all the fans and critics of
the CoD. All the attention we get is nice, and shows you all
really do care in some form or another. I'd continue on with
praise for you, but 'Malcolm and Eddie' is coming on... er.
CoD Realms Awards By: Shingo
The results are in. Your votes are counted. The masses breathe
a deep syncronized breath and the drum-roll starts.
The results were taken from voting forms mud-mailed to Shingo

Quest and Contest By: CoD Staff
Hunt for 'Catch Phrase' continues...
Dria has asked us to grab people and stop them for a moment to
have people ponder what Realms means to them.
The first part of this is to come up with a slogan to represent
The Realms of Despair. Think bulletin or catch-phrase, something
that would have public appeal and grab attention. You can submit
your slogan idea on the public CoD boards or mudmail your entry
to Kuah. Have fun!
Thanks to those of you who already submitted slogans!
Poets Corner By: Sarig
To My Grandfather.
I stare at your picture, So old and faded now
I see the smile on your lips, and the brightness in your eyes
You seemed so old and wise, Like you'd lived a million lives
but no you only lived one, Now that I am older, I realize
you weren't that old, You still had plenty of time left to live
You still needed time to watch, your grandchildren grow up
To help us through the hard times, To share your knowledge with us
To help teach us about life, It wasn't fair we didn't have you there
it wasn't fair that you had to die, Why did you leave us when you knew
you were the one that held this family together. I know you
were always here in spirit and you watch over us, We will all miss you,
and love you, and we hope that you have found peace, and all the pain
has gone away.
