Tail FeathersThanks to everyone who entered the Tail Feathers contest to create a Tail Feathers pilot! Everyone had a ton of fun reading the creative ideas.

Our winners have been selected. The grand prize winner will have their pilot created as a pilot card in Tail Feathers! It will be web published with art commissioned for their idea, after Jerry works with the winner to make sure the unit is balanced, etc.

However, today we are only announcing the runners up. We'll announce the grand prize winner once we've worked with the winner to get the card made and the art done!

First Runner Up: Jerry's Pick

Our first runner up, selected personally by Jerry Hawthorne, designer of Tail Feathers, is PlaidHatGames.com user Elium, who submitted an idea for the pilot Skaggril. Here's Skaggril's info as submitted:

Skaggril (Vermin Raiders)
Intimidate: Instead of tilting, Skagrill may alter an opponent's tilt by one after their tilt is revealed.
Melee/Range/Pilot/Life Bonus: 3/1/3/1

Skaggril is a large, one-eyed mercenary mouse whose ferocity and piloting have made him renowned and feared. His allegiances run only as deep as their rewards. However, he is doggedly guided by his own moral code.

Congrats to Elium on the $55 PlaidHatGames.com store coupon!

Second Runner Up: Random Pick

Our second runner up, selected at random, is Shr1k13, who submitted an idea for a pilot named Lucas. Here's Lucas' info as provided by Shr1k13:

Lucas (Downwood Militia)
Quick Wits: After tilts have been declared but before the Determining Intiative step, Lucas can spend 4 cheese to take the First Player Nut. If this occurs then proceed to the Activate Units step and continue play. (This ability cannot be used two rounds in a row).
Melee/Range/Pilot/Life Bonus:1/2/2/+2

“Oh I see what you did there. But are you ready for this?”

Lucas is a mouse who has always been interested in learning. Now that he has joined the Militia in defense of his home, Lucas studies his opponents as closely as he studied his books. He is always looking for mistakes and tells to help him gain the upper hand against his opponents.

Congrats to Shr1k13 on the $55 PlaidHatGames.com store coupon!
