I know a summary is coming, but I just wanted to put my words of thanks and congratulations in:
Thank you Lord Tyranis for such an exciting and thrilling gem quest! I was so glad I got to participate and it exceeded my expectations.
I think everyone who participated also knows I'm right to congratulate Salvador on having developed a strategy which kept him dominating the majority of the quest - something that could've only been done with practice and pre-determined thought and planning. A lesson learnt for the rest of us.
I'd like to congratulate the most, though, my team: Dankus, Teryn, Prometheus, Zamphere and Plaman (and later for a short while Jimrey). Even though I was selected as captain, you were all captains of our team. I've never seen a group of people unite so well and to improve dramatically round after round. If I could select a team again it would be my pleasure to by your sides once more.
Finally, Plaman stealing the gem from Salvador 3 or 4 seconds before the final sands fell! A well deserved win, a cunning plan to wait it out until the very end! Well done and well deserved victory, no comparison to how you were from the first round to the final round. Most improved player through the time frame and only recently returned!
That's my speech done. Look forward to the next one.
Written by my hand on the 12th of Ilmarael, in the year 1311.
