The Furious Contest of Gork closed last night at midnight-ish, leaving me with a few dozen entries to sift through. As with the Crawling Contest, they were all uniformly excellent, barring the odd ‘I dipped a white-based orruk in green wash, give me my book’ entry. Which, while I admire the chutzpah, ain’t winning you bupkis, chum. And as before, I sincerely wish I had a few more copies of the book to hand out.

I was tremendously lucky to be able to write about her as often as I have done, and I enjoyed every Machiavellian minute of it. WHF has precious few female characters of note, and I’m honored to have been the one chosen to tell Neferata’s story. And now, I give you the (unofficial) Neferata mixtape, to join those made for Mannfred von Carstein, Arkhan the Black, and Vlad von Carstein.
Hail to the Queen. Continue reading “Hail to the Queen: The (Unofficial) Neferata Mixtape”
