As usual, there is no a clear winner. But this time, we chose to use a mix of two of the descriptions sent (with the consent of the authors), so instead a winner and a finalist, this time there will be two winners :)¡

WINNER: Kain (http://apps.facebook.com/guildmasters/Game/Profile.aspx?IdProfile=466). Prize: 100 Diamonds.

Wild War Birds are fierce mount beasts that can reach and maintain fast speeds while running, and also act as valuable allies in battle. Their two mighty legs can kick opponents and hurt them with their sharp claws. The intimidating beak, powered by a short but powerful neck is also used by these birds as an offensive weapon. Their aggressive behavior makes them hard to handle in combat, but a well-trained Wild War Bird is able to obey orders without losing control.

Fast runners and tough warriors, Wild War Birds are also appreciated by their resistance in hard environments. Lack of water or food within several days is not a problem for these beasts, used to survive in wild and dangerous areas.

WINNER: Beltrak (http://apps.facebook.com/guildmasters/Game/Profile.aspx?IdProfile=42). Prize: 100 Diamonds.

These mythical birds, of which few specimens are known, are trained to fight in combat by a legendary order of warrior monks, since the early days of the Creation.

They are similar in appearance to a rooster 8 feet tall, have bright feathers, big claws and a huge beak to rip their opponents. They are very agile and fast, and especially tenacious in combat, not stop fighting to the death.

We will compound a mix of both descriptions for the final one.

Thank you and congrats both!

Sadly, yes

Don´t worry about that. The otehr contests had more appliants. Maybe this one came in a bad time for people to cooperate. I like the idea of making this small things to let us help in the game.

Here is the promised mix between the two winner texts:

War birds appear as eight foot tall jungle fowl. Their massive ax-like beak is equally adapted at crushing bones and rending flesh. Thick scaled feet end in razor sharped talons which will rip their opponents. They beat a horse in speed, and their natural agility has taken more than one experienced warrior off guard.

Trained war birds are rare enough to be considered legend. Their tenacious nature and tendency to fight to the death are known far and wide, and has prevented all but the most persistent to even attempt to train them. However, war birds are said to be trained by an order of mythic warrior monks that live in a hidden mountain valley far to the east. Reared from chicks, the monks train patiently these mounts to handle a rider and to take commands, allowing the rider to maintain control even during their infamous blood lust in combat.

Congrats to those who own one of these legendary trained war birds :)¡
