Lost In Hyboria - "Our Eyes Bleed"

New strip up at TTH. Take a gander...

Lost In Hyboria - "Our Eyes Bleed"

Very appropriate, I think.

You see, over the past few weeks we ran a contest at TTH called "AoC-4-Life". There were over 600 entries of 250 word essays into this contest, and we CMs of the Age of Conan site had to read and judge them all. Not exactly an easy task.

But of course, in the face of losing, people don't care what we went through making our selections... they're just pissed that we didn't pick their entry. Accusations, vulgarity, and death-threats abound but what can we say? We expected as much.

I'm just glad the thing's over.

For the most part our community was very calm about losing, but there's always those few people who have a completely irrational sense of entitlement which turns to rage when confronted with an opposition. People are strange, when you're a stranger.
