Ladies and gentlemen of Clockwork City, may we have your attention, please.
This is the moment you have all been waiting for.
For one full year, our Sky Pirates have done battle in the skies above Clockwork City.
Through smog and steam they have duked it out, ship to ship, man to man, until only one remained.
Today, we announce the winner of Rogue Skies.
This last round was a long one. Many extensions were given to allow for a grand conclusion to our humble tournament. And now, in the end, one person has risen above the clouds to take their place as
your Master of the Skies.

I can't even begin to express what an amazing experience this was. We saw an amazing cast of characters, remarkable and memorable comics and a great community that helped Rogue Skies shine!
To the chatroom dwellers in the early months, your guys's input made this thing work! Your support kept us going!
To the fans and participants alike who waited patiently between rounds!
To the judges, especially those who we called in, often on short notice! I apologize for putting you through that!
To the people who donated Prizes! Especially those donating their time and artwork for our silly little OCT!
And most of all, to my co-host wallabri
She was crazy enough to agree, nay, to ENCOURAGE, and assist in setting this up!
She matched me drink for drink in the dark hours of prompt making and judging!
She kicked me ass when I forgot a due date.
And again when I forgot it's extension.
I can safely say that without her Rogue Skies would have never happened.
Cliff notes: Walla is amazing, and you should all worship her. Do it.
So again, thank you, all of you.
Your humble Skymaster.
