Its easier for me to just build stuff in the middle earth universe because I don't have any hobbit mini figures or anything like that. Check out my LOTR builds, that's usually how I build in LOTR.

Oh, all right! For the free-for-all, you can do anything for Middle Earth you wish. For the Elimination Rounds, you'll be assigned a real topic from the storyline. Sound good? Good luck!

Hopefully we'll get some more entries, or maybe we'll have to limit the number of people who move on to 8 instead of 16 :/

Yeah, I'm hoping for at least 18 entries, then maybe we can still do 5 rounds. At least it'll be 4 if only 8 people move on.

Four rounds might be best, five can be a bit too long. Like the ALO for instance was too long, and even though that was because of inactive judges and lots of extensions (coughcoughDavidcough) five rounds might lose people's interest.

Not sure, David's on vacation, so he can't judge right now, and it still has to finish today.

Nope. No problem. Glad to clarify for you there. With luck we'll be done today, since David returned home yesterday, and I left a message to Michael in the FotB.

Michael is done, but we might make the scores out of 50 since David isn't judging.

I'm pretty sure David is on vacation that;s why I was suggesting it I was not trying to be rude or hurtful and Halhi I think that is a good idea

We'll wait for today, but if he doesn't respond by tomorrow night, we may just have to cut him out for Round 1. This way he can jump right into voting when he becomes active agin.
