    A week has passed and though I had little time to read the magnificent works of many writers around here I have read into one EUIII AAR a bit - and found it brilliant in storytelling mainly due to the excellent depiction of the main characters.
    Thus I give this award to a man that has supported me during my first struggles as a writer and who writes with a burning feather - I am talking about Brandenburg III and his awesome AAR The Dark Muse. I specially give this price to him for the gripping portrait of two characters, Jŗnos and Farid.

    Congratulations, "Smooth Operator"

    That's one thing I love about these awards; they get you reading AARs that you wouldn't have otherwise noticed (not being an EU player and all that).

    I almost forgot about this with so much going on these days.

    Thanks XHR and others for your comments about the project. Its good to know people are still tuning in to it even after these last few months.

    I wonít go too much into the story as Iíve done that a few times but I havenít really gone into the characters. Or rather, my character creation.

    Before I started the story I wanted to have a solid main character. And Janos really is the only main character since he travels between the reality we live in and the one tucked away inside a book. In my stories for my main characters and strong sub-characters I use character sheets, outlining their lives in strict detail. I donít do this merely to remember what color eyes I gave the character but as I design the characters from ground up, Iím able to formulate their personality. It becomes something which they own. This creation also forces the creator to research a little into the area the character is from which is never a bad thing and can even spur more ideas for your story.

    Farid was a different mess. He had no character sheet, just like the rest of the characters who lived inside the book. I didnít think I needed one for them since this was 'only an AAR' and I had an outline, as loose as it was; I realized as I wrote that I shouldíve created them anyway. This mistake has caused me to create such character sheets for each character I plan to have, no matter how incidental - unless they have no name. Its really a great help to do these things. It'll also keep you from re-reading what you've already written.

    I recall LD having supplied a character sheet somewhere in the SolAARium at some time but Iím at a complete loss to locate it. Besides, it wonít hurt you to read through that sticky even if there isnít much to add.

    There are more chapters to come for the story but Muse is at its end. But this doesnít mean the end of the story, no, one can mark this as the halfway point! Janos must still fight to save the world. In this new incantation one should expect more fantasy, more lore, new characters and better pictures to litter the Victoria forum when the conclusion hits the electronic screen next Saturday (or Sunday... or if Iím really lazy, Monday. )

    Oh, and it would be terrible if I didnít mention the WritAARs Building, a new project in this area of AARland. It has its first submission, a submission which Iíll be commenting on sometime tomorrow. I hope to see a few eyes there... and a few critiques wouldnít hurt either.

    LD's Character Sheets: found right here. Linked in the fAARq under Writing Techniques/Hints--Character Sheets.

    And agreed, BIII. The SolAARium is a fountain of knowledge.
