    The Skrayling Tree vs The War Hound and the World's Pain
    The Skrayling Tree
    The War Hound and the World's Pain

    The poll is expired.

    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is The Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

    Will this one be a whitewash?

      No hesitation. War Hound. Without doubt.
      _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
      _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
      _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
      _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

        Warhound is one of the best. No contest.

          Funny feeling this might be the first 'granny' of the tournament!

            I love Skrealing Tree, one of my faves of the entire elric cycle. A mamoth with coup feathers is jus too awesome for words, but WHatWP just too strong a competitor

              TWHatWP is easily one of my favourites. No contest.
              You see, it's... it's no good, Montag. We've all got to be alike. The only way to be happy is for everyone to be made equal.

                Warhound is such a good book, but Skrayling Tree is such a great tour de force for Elric. The pasty white guy for me.

                  Maybe because I'm American and love the mythos behind it but I find 'Skrayling' wonderful! Unfortunately, I have to be honest with myself; it was 'Warhound' that I read to my son in utero, not 'Skrayling'...that must count for something.

                  Sorry, Elric, Ulrich has to get my vote on this one.
