Winners of the Beyond Time Contest
Our first place winner is “Children of Tsitsi”, an enthralling story by Katie Masters. A beautifully balanced story with a compelling narrative – this work is throughly enjoyable and completely captivating.
CyborgAbsolutely riveting. This story combines the best of traditional sci-fi with a consciousness that is engaging for all submerged in a tech-savvy age. Cyborg has us excited to see more from Alex Rushmer.
Harlow Morgan and the Hedge RaceWhat a ride. Honest characters, a well developed narrative, and a stimulating look at steampunk. Lyndsey Lewellen has a flair for Sci-Fi fiction and talent for creating worlds worth getting lost in.

Threads You Might Have Missed
RPGnet’s RPG-focused areas had a glut of great new threads last week. Here are just a few.
First, as you probably know if you’ve read this far into a Newsletter dedicated to a Role Playing Game website, Gen Con was last weekend. For the latest news on all the happenings in Indianapolis, check out “What is the news from Gen Con? over in TRO. (You’ll also find a link therein to a thread discussing the biggest industry news to come out of this year’s Gen Con thus far: “Moon Design Joins Chaosium Ownership Group”.)
For some lighthearted fun that sometimes veers into solid GMing advice, you should also stop by “What’s your favorite GM advice Cliché?”.
Speaking of clichés, “Rule one – NEVER split the party” is also worth a read for some funny stories and GMing advice.
On a slightly more serious note: do you care about other players in the game cheating? There’s something innately offensive about it, to be sure, but does it really have an impact on the game? For your fellow RPGnetters’ opinions on these and related questions, take a look at “Allowing your players to cheat”.
Have a good week, everyone.
