    I blew it on the last one, but I had a lot of fun watching everyone else's character develop. I hope some more WIP threads turn up, I loved watching all the Unity folks compete and encourage each other, it was awesome.

    Hrmmm, would have bumped Nightshade to 2nd, put Maw in 3rd, and dropped Vampy to RU status.

    But yeah, definitely congrats to them... some overall awesome characters there.
