Aelyrian Awards 2016: The Winners!

 
The Winners!


First off, thank you to everybody who voted and participated this year. Aelyria only exists because of its community, so thank you to all of you for taking the time and contributing what you do to the site. With any luck, I hope that you'll all be around again to vote in next year's awards. We had a higher turnout for the Awards than last year and I'm happy that people seemed to like the new Google Forms format we used - it definitely made tallying up the end result a lot easier as well. Holy cow there were pie graphs and everything, it was great. Quite a few categories were very close and wound up being decided by only a single vote! We had some strong nominees this year, and no matter what, you're all awesome.

Now then, congratulations to the winners, enjoy the shiny new badges when they're handed out, and here's to another year of Aelyria! And happy holidays, everybody!

Oh, and I guess this is a mini-update: the dropdown menus at the very top have been fixed so that the "new player" section now shows up appropriately under "Help." Previously, this was only happening for the Everwood skin theme. Didn't seem important enough to warrant its own news article, so, here you go!

Grandmaster Swordsman"Throughout Aelyria's history, there have been tales and stories of mythological warriors sometimes mistaken for blessed or divine entities. Godlike fighters, the Grandmasters are forever remembered for their valor and are known to break the physical limitations seemingly at will, capable of Masteries that lesser fighters can scarcely comprehend, let alone attempt. Often called one-man armies, Grandmasters are able to defeat countless lower-proficient fighters without much difficulty. Their physique is a testament to their life-long struggle to achieve this near-perfection; through enough conditioning and practice, a Grandmaster can withstand amazing amounts of physical pain and anguish. Incredibly fast and strong, their courage and valor enable them to seemingly perform miracles." - Arms Primer | Correspondence | Glory of the Conqueror"The Aspect of Constantine infuses your words and actions; when you are engaged in armed or magical combat, commanding armies on the tactical battlefield, or planning a military stratagem for warfare, you will have a decisive advantage against a character of the same relative skill, all other influences being equal, and will be able to out-maneuver them." - Kaelon
