And the winner is...

MU!!! Despite all the mispellings and grammar errors, my Lovecraftian weird fantasy setting took first place in the Swords & Wizardry Appreciation Day Blogfest! I realize this is technically old news--prehistoric in the the fast-paced world of the inter-tubes--but thanks to my rotten work schedule, but I only found out last night when I stumbled on Erik Tanner's e-mail notifying me that I'd won.

Accepting the award for Mr. Siefert is... OH MY GOD! 
I'd like to thank all the little people who made this possible: I'd like to thank Matt Finch for creating S&W in the first place; Erik Tanner, Christopher Helton, and the folks at Frog God Games who organized the event; and my long-neglected game group who I haven't been able to play with in months. I'd also like to thank my cats, Fred and Victor, as well as my brittany spaniel, Duke; my anime body pillow, Kyoko; Arthur Compton, the inventor of the florescent lamp; Ms. Gertude Torgelson of Minon, Wi; and my personal lord and savior, Ksárul, Prince of Blue Room, Keeper of Secrets.

There is going to be more Mu coming soon. Like one of the Insects of Shaggai, the idea has crawled into my brain and whispers blasphemous thoughts into mind. (Either that, or I really need to change out my meds.) Right now I'm revising and expanding on my original post, as well as working up a Savage Worlds/Realms of Cthulhu version. There has been some talk about whispers about re-printing my notes in Knockspell, and I'm seriously tempted to look into publishing it if I can get it fleshed out enough.

Stay tuned...
