Happy Birthday Jakob and Whilma!

Today marks the first anniversary of Daark Twins, the mod I released for the OEI Grimm Fairy Tales mod contest. April 30, 2007, was the deadline for the contest, in which also participated builders like Wyrin, Maerduin and JClef, of course, who won the highly coveted first place prize ;).

We were given 26 days to make a 1-2 hour mod. It was a very intense and exciting experience. It was also I think a very formative event for the community at a time when it needed somewhat of a nudge.

Congratulations again to all contest participants. And thank you to everyone who downloaded and played Daark Twins during the past year.

Congratulations on the one year anniversary and Happy Birthday to Jakob and Whilma! :)

Yay - Happy B-day to the twins!

I feel so old now...


I'll always remember going "Whoa..." as I traveled by foot across that sweet lake!

Come to think of it - there were a lot of neat things packed inside that little mod!

Oh - and you want to know what the Highly Coveted First Place Prize was?!

*drum roll*
*cymbal crash*

An Obsidian T-Shirt that took 3+ months to receive!


I do love it, though - I wear it a lot. Honest.

You actually got a prize?? :) Wow! I didn't know that. Did you also get an autographed picture of
G-Rob-nar with it? ;)

You should use the pic of you wearing the shirt as an avatar on the BRE forums :)

Thanks guys. I'll pass on your wishes to J&W. :)

Sometimes I think I should go on on a contest regimen to get ItFR moving faster...

Congrats, and Happy B-day to the twins. An absolute gem of a module E.C.

It's still one of my favorites, and to think you pulled it off in such a limited amount of time.

Talent...yup, that's the only explanation.

Thanks guys! You're great. :)

Hahaha - Good call - an autographed pic of Grobnar would be highly coveted, indeed! :D
