Specialist Creation Contest Winners Announced

Following a grueling two weeks of judging, the winners of the 2012 Specialist Creation Contest were announced on Thursday.  Contestants were asked to create original specialist characters, complete with background information, a proposed epic weapon, and optional fan art.  The five judges reviewed each entry meticulously, looking for creativity, richness, innovation, and balance.  Each judge proposed a top ten list, which were subsequently compared to build the final five winners.  Seventeen entries made it onto at least one top ten list–a testament to the competitiveness of these entries.  The original contest instructions may be viewed here.

Congratulations Winners!
