Home Questing Task 6: Results!

by Christopher "Janus" Donnelly

Hello, and welcome to the the results of the sixth task. This week, rather than the regular judging we put out a facebook poll to determine which catchphrases for the gods were the most popular.  So, let’s get straight into our entries:

From DelHemar is a submission for Vesta, the Goddess of Hearth, Home and delicious cookies:

“There's always more room by the fire.”

Coming in from Laika en'Naur is Cindi- youngest sister of Aurora and Goddess of picking up on Seance calls meant for other gods:

"Oh you wanted to talk to Aurora? She's like not around right now but you can like totally talk to me... I can talk about BOYS all day (giggle)"

Rosetta submitted another possible catchphrase for Vesta:

"We've got cookies! No, really!"

Our penultimate submission is from Cressida and contains yet another Vesta submission:

"Got Milk?"

And finally, from Osa is a submission for Rexan, god of Serpents, Poison, and Assassination:

A few people missed the deadline, but made a few other catchphrases that just needed to be shared.

From King Alexander Cecil come the following four catchphrases:

Aurora: Good for the good god!
Dionin: Kill 'em all and let the Grey Man sort 'em out.
Min: Shwing
Orcus, the Chaos gods, and several others: Fair Use!
Laiko also provided a good catchphrase for a god he follows:
Harlequin: May the laughter continue

So, as mentioned earlier this week I decided the readers would be the judge.  Because it works out well for this week, the scoring will be 1 point for every vote a submission got (maximum of 10 points.) plus 1 point for entering.

In first is DelHemar’s submission with 11 points.
In second is Osa’s submission with 8 points.
In third is Laika’s submission with 6 points.
And tied in fourth are Rosetta and Cressida’s submissions with 5 points each.

So, before I total up the overall scores, I mentioned something previously: that there would be bonus points for people who entered the horror writing contest.  So, 5 bonus points go to Sagart Hawkshade, J’reth, Nalydros, Cressida and Thayet.

Which brings our totals so far to the following:

DelHemar - 58.5 points
Cressida - 37 points
Aeston, Areni, and Gwen - 18.5 points
Bart - 11 points
Iawen - 11 points
Laika en'Naur - 10 points
Saka - 10 points
Vawn - 10 points
Luc-Dubois Coupant - 9 points
Osa - 8 points
Kwido - 6 points
Tarun Ul-Sikar - 5 points
Rosetta - 5 points
J'reth - 5 points
Sagart Hawkshade - 5 points
Nalydros - 5 points
Thayet - 5 points
Orion - 4 points
Vanduke - 4 points
