This month's Player of the Month is lymond. lymond has been active on CFC for seven years and has over 17000 posts. iirc I read his posts in general discussion when I first joined and was learning the game. He has been active in HOF and GOTM and you can watch him play on Youtube. In BOTM86, he managed both the fastest and lowest scoring (aka only) Spaceship victory and earned his first Eptathlon Award. A warm welcome to Kennigit who has joined our community and submitted his first BOTM entry. Domination and Conquest were the most popular victory conditions. Jovan Kukic took the gold and Jester Fool won his second silver medal with domination victories. Gosha190 returns and takes the bronze with Conquest, barely beating WastinTime's 760AD fastest Domination. Close behind in score are aitkensam's 1160 fastest Conquest and yamps who took the only Challenger save. Only two victories for Culture, Diplomacy, and Religious categories. But that doesn't quite give an award to all six of those victors. Emperor BTS is still a challenge for many of you; there were 3 defeats and 3 incompletes. Here are all the awards: Summary of Medal Winners: Jovan Kukic: 1110 AD Domination Victory, 292,222 points. Jester Fool: 1515 AD Domination Victory, 243,080 points.

No map maker special challenges were issued this month. Here's where everyone settled. Only three ventured from the starting location. The Small Print: The numbers by each player's name indicate the turn settled on (starting turn is 0). Players are colour coded by game class (challenger=red, adventurer=blue). Symbols indicate victory condition, if there's no symbol then the player either retired or was defeated. The yellow border indicates the land that was visible at the start of the game. >> See the full results here. >> See the updated global rankings here. >> See the latest Pantheon of Heroes here. >> Award symbols are listed here.
