Golly gee Mimesis! Is Erhyne an alt for somebody else on the forums who might have other accounts that could be better known to the general populace?

Dude, I just used the list you posted up last time. Ok, fine, here you go:

Noe
Straylor Leonard
Palacrisis D. Jones
Erhyne/Lyr Tlansson/Dalia/Mimesis
Hazudar
Roscarnis de Lylles
Milo L'Evienne/Klue Malinconico
Sliucha Sindosa/Indefinite

P.S.: for those who are not aware, I have a very deep and abiding affection for this award; I think it represents the very best that this community is, in terms of its being a reward not just for role-play but for service to the community and making this a fun and amazing place. I did not in fact know the player behind Hannas Darkblade personally (or ever rp'd with him), but one of the things I like best about this site is it's longevity and the fact that there are so many people, past and present, who have contributed so much to it at various levels, whether as staff or as players or as peer mods, over the years. And people are remembered, even if they haven't been around for years, or have passed on. I hope everyone takes it in that light too and puts in their nominations!

P.S.S.: I should also note that while Kevin Ostapenko is not with us, his wife still is: she's the player behind Hay'aan Malinconico (and a host of other/previous incarnations).

I always love seeing this award being given out year after year. I knew Kevin just a little bit, having spoken to him briefly. Kevin was a great guy and I'm glad this tradition still carries on. It's a great chance to nominate someone who exemplifies the Aelyrian spirit! So please, when you have a few minutes, please put the effort to nominate someone, as you never know, somebody could be doing the same for you!

Cheers,
Tyler

Kevin would be delighted to see this award continuing in his name. As Mim and Tyler have said, it exemplifies the longevity and community of Aelyria, a place he loved.

Please nominate! Thanks

I had the pleasure and the honor of getting to write and collaborate with Kevin briefly. It wasn't long enough, and this award is always a welcome reminder of how much he meant to Aelyria, to those of us who knew him just a little even from afar, and how much he's still missed. Take the time and nominate someone if you can. It will make you and them feel good. It's a win win. =o)

Thanks to everyone who adds to Aelyria, and I look forward to reading your stories.

It didn't get given out this year. Unfortunately, for whatever reason it got missed. I hope it gets remembered next year, I truly do. I'm not writing here any more, but I will try and remember to come here and remind folks before hand.

While the Aelyrian Awards are great and fab and all the other great things - I think this is important too, and I'd like to see it remembered every year - I know Juan, Jacob and Mimesis feel it's very important to do so, for which I'm incredibly grateful. Of course, part of that is that I'd like him remembered. But it isn't just about that, it's about what it represents. But then, my blog says that clearly. Thanks for posting here, Karri <3
