Although voting is not yet complete to choose the theme of the next contest, the "pre-written character" option is going to win. So to preempt that, please find below four characters I've just fabricated. The idea of this contest will be to take the winning character and write a story of your choosing using him/her. To keep things democratic, please select the character you'd most like to use. The winning character will be launched as a "theme" of sorts early next week. Thanks Name: Bernard “Wolfhammer” Gropper.
