Genesis, the god of timeto Everyone

The concluding rounds of the SANDS-FLAG GEM QUEST on the BATTLEISLE (as begun

by Sebastian on Sunday) will be played out per agreement between protagonists

on THURSDAY 16th JANUARY at MIDNIGHT by the Avalon clock (7pm EST/4pm PST)

with three captains Elmak, Salvador and Tempre having chosen team-mates

from (in order of placement) Clara, Milenko, Belgarath, Droxon, Xion,

Dunccan and then - though Serethipas placed high enough, he was unable

to conclude and Zamphere's gentlemanly act led to exit stage left so fast -

Ramoth thus acquired the 10th and final spot.

The FINALE will likely be excellent viewing and both rock pools plus a 3rd

will be made available for anyone who wants to watch. We anticipate a

far less frantic, but rather more tactical and innovative three rounds

of competition. There may be a 4th to decide the gem-winner. It depends

on the teams which are: Elmak with Xion and Ramoth; Salvador with Dunccan,

Belgarath and Milenko; Tempre with Clara and Droxon.

Based on the competition so far XION and MILENKO are the obvious stand-out

players for \"most improved\" and \"best junior. Competition is close for the

other contest awards. We shall see after Thursday. Good luck all and take

note of the updated time as originally Sunday was mooted. This contest is just

two days away!
