As such, I will be extending the deadline for completion of entries until April 9th - the end of the first full week in April. To clarify:

    NO NEW ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED AS OF 3/31/11 at 11:59 PM CENTRAL STANDARD TIME (GMT -6:00).

    JUDGING WILL COMMENCE AFTER APRIL 9th

    Voting Criteria
    Each voter gets three (3) votes.
    Can only vote for one (1) AAR once.
    Cannot vote for your own AAR [does not apply if you did not enter an AAR].
    AAR with the most votes wins 1st place.

    Would comic AARs be permitted? I realise I won't be able to participate this time around, since I accidentally started on 29 December. But you know, just for the future. AAR in question: http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/...A-Flagland-AAR
