Another announcement from the Marshalls!

As some of you may have noticed (or not), we have started to give bonuses in G&B. Some are awarded for creativity in particular posts and some are awarded randomly to general posts.

In addition, there will be a number of hidden or random bonuses that will be given out for posts in the other forums: Reading Group: The Screwtape Letters, Cast and Character Discussion, Costumes, and Narnia & Christianity. The more you post, the more likely it is that you will be awarded bonus points.

Ah-HA. I did notice, in fact, and was about to go ask about it. ;)) Thanks for the heads up! :D

Okay, apologies to my fellow Lions for my lack of posting the past week; I've had an enormous amount of real life work to do, and had to postpne all forms of fun. :( Thankfully, my workload should be lighter this week and I will be back to posting very long, long lectures. ;)

I've been without net access (and even computer access) for the last three days. This is what I feared would happen in July, and what nearly kept me from joining the tournament!

Luckily it wasn't until now, and it might even be only those three days - we'll see what else happens. Back to posting, and perhaps catching some bonus points!

Thanks for those helpful announcements, Marshalls! :) I am so impressed with, and I really appreciate all of the work you four are putting into this tournament. :ymapplause: Thank-you! :D

Dernhelm_of_Rohan and Varnafinde, I totally understand! It happens. Good to see you both back now! :) And, Dernhelm, did you have a good birthday? ;))

And now, my fellow lions, I want to share with you all a dream I had a few nights ago about this competition:

Well, in my dream, it wasn't a mere competition; it was a full-blown war! And the Dragons were waaaay far ahead of us Lions. :-o ;)) They had an army made up of these creatures who seemed to be a combination of toothpicks and goldfish ( :-\), and they multiplied by the second! The Dragons had taken some of us Lions captive as prisoners, and those of us taken were trying desperately to get free, but to no avail. Then I crossed into enemy territory to try to help free some of my fellow Lions. But then I was underwater, and when I tried to swim to the surface, I realized that the Dragons were holding me down! Almost unconscious, I pleaded for them to let me go, but they said in order to free me to go to the surface, they required a sacrifice on my part. So I gave them my fancy wristwatch. They accepted it, and gave me a high-speed boost to the water's surface, and I think I barely made it out alive. The next thing I remember was meeting this neutral creature called "If" and trying to get him to help our quickly-becoming-defeated army. I knew that he had some power or strategy that could help us Lions win the war (I don't know exactly what it was, though), but I woke up without finding out if he would agree to help us.

That was about all I remember, team. Crazy, eh? :p I wish I could post in the Dragons' Headquarters thread for them to visit our Headquarters and read this, but I can't. But I do hope some of them see this, because I think they'd like it since they're winning in the dream, and not in real life. ;))

Rather weird dream, Nellie - crazy, yes! :-o

And it's quite possible that some of the Dragons read it - I sometimes read their HQ thread. I'm careful not to post, though!

Noble Knights!

Welcome to the 11th hour! As you are probably well aware by now, tomorrow is the LAST day for you to earn points for your teams. As you know, points in G&B are worth 10 points throughout the duration of the day tomorrow! Points are also up for grabs in other sections across the forum post, post, POST! There are also those ever so intangible bonus points that still remain up for grabs!

This is the final stretch, and it's still anybody's game!

Good luck for the final day of competition!

And in the 11th hour I lose my internet connection ... :(

Now that it's back, I just hope that it will continue working until the end of the tournament. If I suddenly disappear again, there may be technical reasons why ... :-s

I can relate, Varna! I had internet problems all day yesterday and much of today.

C'mon, Lions, let's finish strong! Only a few hours left.

Roughly four hours to go now, people! As stargazer said, let us finish strong. B-)

Ach! Sorry about your internet, guys; good to have you back. ;)

And the new internet connection lasted me for the rest of the tournament, and allowed me to answer to Letters 2-12!

And even to play a couple of games more or less at the last minute :p

Edit:
I must have posted roughly three hundred posts this month - but at 937 posts, I'm STILL just a NarniaWeb Junkie :-o

Yay! :D Great job everyone! The Lions (and Dragons!) did an awesome job, and it sure was nice to see the forum hoppin'. :)

(Speaking on a personal level, I tripled my post count, and I think I posted exactly 400 times this month--well, not including this one. ;)) )

Varna, just 63 more posts till the next rank! :)

I only posted a piddling amount of 96 posts this month (not including this one) but it was nice to finally hit 6700. (And 44 of those posts were over the 2 day period 30th and 31st. :-o )

GO LIONS!!!
