Thank you one and all for the submissions...
I enjoyed them all, and wished there was room for more of you.
But there can be only 5 winners, so...
After careful review, i have chosen the 5 best...Late entries will still be accepted,
and can still bump those on the list,
except for TWO entries (Woodruff and Squishyg) that are locked in.
Well, here it is... the top 5 qualifiers so far...SHORT LIST OF THE BEST SUBMISSIONS:WOODRUFF
Woodruff wrote:Woodruff: I'll ride in his place.
Robinette: What's your name, Woodruff? I'm asking you Woodruff Thatcher, to answer me with your name? It's not Sir Woodruff. It's not Captain, or Major or Brigadier Woodruff. It's certainly not Conqueror Woodruff.
Woodruff: I'm aware of that.
Robinette: You have to be of noble birth to compete!
Woodruff: A detail. The landscape is points. Do you want to gain them or don't you?
Robinette: If the nobles find out who you are there'll be the devil to pay.
Woodruff: Then pray that they don't.
My Ringside Announcer: You are all equally blessed. For I have the pride, the privilege, nay, the pleasure of introducing to you to a knight, sired by knights. A knight who can trace his lineage back beyond Charlemagne. I first met him atop a mountain near Jerusalem, praying to God, asking his forgiveness for the Saracen blood spilt by his sword. Next, he amazed me still further in Italy when he saved a fatherless beauty from the would-be ravishing of her dreadful Turkish uncle. In Greece, he spent a year in silence just to better understand the sound of a whisper. And so without further gilding the lily and with no more adieu, I give to you, the seeker of serenity, the protector of Italian virginity, the enforcer of our Lord God, the one, the only, Woodruff!
I shall save one of my four spots (soon to be available, may not apply to your area, must be present to win) in the great hope to be selected for this tremendous honor and privilege!
200 Siege, stolze Zahl
nun hast du die Qual der Wahl.
Wählst du mich so werde ich,

Tust du es nicht ist für mich klar
dass es Angst vor mir nur war.
Ok so i added a german poem as well, will give you the translation
as soon as im on your list

Whenever one is seated across from Robin, one is always assured of a very strong opposition. It is by playing such games that one hones the skills required to win more.

Personally, Robinette, I think you have one of the most difficult medals to achieve in all of Conquer Club: your specific General Contribution medal. No one can even attempt to fill the slot you'd leave empty, should you ever leave. How can an institution stay standing if its foundation gives out? How can a daisy show its petals in the spring if it has no roots to absorb the nutrients it needs? It takes a certain kind of person to have such an impact with no tools.
If I'm going to be perfectly honest, I'm not even sure if I deserve
to be in your game. You should have your game be a game for those that have contributed as you have, like AndyDufresne
, and Fruitcake
I'm just the Newsletter guy.
