Name The Silver Steed Contest Winners Ceremony EM Faine Morgan’s Speech: Welcome, Citizens of Origin. We gather here tonight to celebrate a community feat of historic proportions for this shard. By your hard work and dedication, you have fully stocked your zoo and seen the birth of the elusive Silver Steed. This feat was not accomplished by one person. The saying goes … “It takes a village to raise a child.” In this case it may be said, “It takes a community to raise a zoo.” You have all truly shown the meaning of community in the past weeks are you worked to help the Silver Steed be born into our lands and keep him and his zoo mates healthy and happy. Unfortunately, EM Laurana could not be with us tonight. However, she sends her greetings and congratulations to the people of Origin, and wishes you to know that she is here in spirit. And now it is my privilege to introduce you to Crystal Canyon of Crystal Canyon Community, the sponsors of the Origin Name the Silver Steed Contest. Crystal Canyon’s Speech: Greetings. I would like to thank all of those who participated. There were some really great names submitted … Glad I didn’t have to choose the winner! (* laughter *). EM Faine will announce the winner starting from 4th runner up. EM Faine Morgan: And now I would like to call up the people who had the top five names voted on by the citizens of Origin. When I call your name, please join us for the presentations. After everyone has been recognized, I’ll announce the winners, as Crystal said, from 4th Runner Up: Fujin, who submitted the name Bling Bling Intoxication, who submitted the name Doc the Stallion Artraea Morrigan, who submitted the name Etain Donald the Bold, who submitted the name Silver Streak Hero, who submitted the name Quicksilver These were submitted to the judges in alphabetical order with the submitters’ names removed.
