Most Feared Duelist: In an age of really quite civilised duelling, I think I'm going to have to go with the one that has shown the biggest improvement since last age, which is Amelia/Daniel. Honorable mentions to Duncan for changing it up and running very successfully with a taint build (which is NOT easy at end game, as anyone who has run a taint build can attest to) ... and Andorius, whose dominance was no less than expected
Best Clan Battle: In the end the Badgers looooved the action through Fal Dara and Shol Arbela ... where merc work paved the way for the TV takeover.
Best Avatar: SO MANY good ones this age. Have to say though the one that really struck a chord as really WoT was Sammata Lightsbane. Every time I saw that pic it put me into the books.
Most Community Driven: I'm going to go with Maer Varna. The simple act of setting up bounty quests repeatedly was gameplay stimulating, or content creation if you prefer, and should be encouraged.
Master Mentor: In an age where pretty much all folks knew which end of the sword to hold to not cut themselves, I'm not sure a whole lot of mentoring was necessary
Swami of Subterfuge: Malakai ... Are the Infernals another branch of Muriels? No, they're not! I thought they weren't spun out this age?!? Yes, they were! And not in a small way, no, but as a very dominant force no less, and one that in the end forced our hand to switch sides just to try and even things up a little bit
Guru of Greed: Andorius. My definition of greed is not simply amassing personal wealth ... it's amassing personal wealth at the expense of others' personal wealth, which is way more fun and one of the things that he excelled at!
Colossus of Chaos and Conflict: Coreer ... there's more work goes on behind the scenes during the entire duration of an age than most see ... and though I've tipped my hat to Malakai as the workhorse of the Shadow in previous ages (and again this age of course), I think Coreer deserves recognition as the architect of the Shadow's success.
Lord/Lady of Light and Liberty: Talion
Horde Whore: well Dazen Lightbringer, of course!
Slayer of Armies: Gregor Valhejas ... hope I spelt that name right
Kicker of Shins: Rather early on in the piece, I recall someone (possibly Claid?) running a super nasty little wound build that was giggling it up while beating up on people at his level limit. While that build is taking advantage of a still broken stat, it was still a shining beacon of wtf in an otherwise fairly civilised duelling age. If someone could fess up and name that little fellow that'd be nice.
Best Estate Name: only one that springs to memory is something about Sharks in Aryth Ocean.
Rookie(s) of the year: Only know of one rook, with a name that proboards might go and change on me when I post ... Dildo ... a phallic shaped silicon device equally suitable for self pleasure or alcoholic coma photograph ridicule ... or general photoshop hilarity when they're swapped with guns.
Best City Description: I saw a verse written in a city ... I don't know what city it was, but I actually stopped and read the verse ... I can't tell you what the verse was either ... but I vote for that one.
Most Aggressive Clan: Infernals ... in that inexorable, unstoppable tide of doom kind of way.
Most Prosperous Clan: Seanchan - I mean we're talking pretty close to richie Rich level prosperity here. Would have been interesting seeing how far they could push their prosperity levels if they'd been challenged by a Kaldar or some such.
Clan of Meddling: Seeing as how the pesky Muriels got bored and ceased their meddling, I'll have to throw my vote here on the Knights of the Golden Rose as the support quest gurus.
Name the Age: 1. Chapter 18.6.3- I like Talion's suggestion Most Feared Duelist: Andorious Best Clan Battle: Any and all, Clan battles are always fun. I did enjoy the Fal Dara Battle against the chosen. It had a real "king of the hill" vibe. Best Avatar: Nyein DinMisieri Most Community Driven: Claid kept me laughing. Master Mentor: Seitaarin was always there to help with any questions. I don't know how helpful he was to "brand new" people, but he certainly helped those who are learning how little they really know. Swami of Subterfuge: Malakai Guru of Greed: Andorious or Nyein They both took so much gold from me that I decided to spend it on bounties. Colossus of Chaos and Conflict: Coreer Lord/Lady of Light and Liberty: Talion Horde Whore: Dazen Lightbringer. He may not have had the most horde wins, but there were several times I logged in, saw a horde had appeared less than an hour ago, went to attack and nope. I swear there were times it looked like he solo'ed a horde. (I don't think he did, but it certainly looked that way) Slayer of Armies: Coreer Kicker of Shins: Best Estate Name: Help Sharks!!! I'd live there. (nope) Rookie(s) of the year: Best City Description: Caemlyn Most Aggressive Clan: I wanna say infernals? Most Prosperous Clan: Seanchan or Badgers (both excelled in thier own way)
Clan of Meddling: I got nothing. The Badgers only really meddled when invited. (that's not meddling, that's helping)
