You mean as in 'dragon skin shoes' instead of crocodile? :p


Kimono, not komodo. ;) Though the latter would certainly be interesting...

Dragon skin sounds pretty formal... unless you're a dragon?

especially if one is a dragon, for how can one casually wear the skin of one's brethren?

Are you thereby telling me that Alligators doesn't wear alligator shoes? :p

That's a safe assertion. I would say they do not.

Still cool if you're doing it last minute... ignore my previous warning re: deadlines. Tomorrow (Sept. 23rd) is the deadline, though I wouldn't block any entries sent to me the morning of the 24th, either. Really, if you're worrying over the deadline, you've missed the entire point of the spiel. Just try to get your thing to me before I put 'em up on the site.

Haven't received any entries from others, so I just posted the adventure I wrote for this spiel on the site. Better luck next time, 'ey?

Hey! I e-mailed you my entry the day before the deadline. I guess you didn't get it.

I have it now, good sir! I have e-mailed you a couple questions regarding its posting.

Don't worry about the prize slipping by... I can assure you that at least I will review it!

Sorry about the pause. The deadline for IFComp came up, so I stalled a bit while I finished up my entry. Revgiblet is going on holiday, so I've posted his writing for the spiel-- "Cumberbund"-- at his request. Please check it out... a review board for it and "Top Hat" will be opened up soon.
