    I'd say yellow and Fleeing Coward go well, definitely got my vote!

    As for me, I'll make an early play for Blue in the Playground!

    Because:

    Blue Robes
    Blue buttons on my pointy hat
    I worship a bright blue puppet!

    If you vote for me the blessings of Banjo will be upon you!

    CASTARAS FOR BLUE IN THE PLAYGROUND!

    Not only do I wear blue alot, but I am also alot like the colour blue in personality!

    How?

    Simple! Remember that old Magic the Gathering "What colour are you?" quiz?

    Lets have a look at what it said:

    Quote Originally Posted by Blue

(oui, oui) Your symbol is a water droplet. (I prefer ice to water really...But water's cool. Ice is awesome though.) Your enemies are green and red. (Don't really like the colour green that much...Depends on the red whether I really like it...Dark reds are cool, and reds with hints of purple[Added blue!] are cool as well)
    *nod* See? Nearly all those things I am like.

    Plus, I like blue!

    So vote Castaras for blue!

    Who weilds a blade of darkness?

    Darkblade does - psssh... swords are for suckers

    Whose soul is black as the very void itself?

    Darkblade's soul - if you want to talk about "black marks on souls", you really should see this soul I got from BRC after FoE stole mine.

    Who is emo/goth and not afraid to admit it?

    Darkblade is - as is THANATOS

    Who will slay your enimeis if you vote for him?

    Darkblade shall - THANATOS will steal all their wordly goods and leave their materalisim to suffering!

    Who shall kill your families if you don't vote for him?

    Darkblade shall - THANATOS isn't nearly that stupid!

    Oh, there you go, Darkblade, your errors have been corrected.
    Also, this post would not be complete if I didn't also transcribe my pre-campagin campagin here, so, without further ado:

    Quote Originally Posted by thanatos5150 View Post

    Black, while not technically a color is an abscence of light. The way we see is various wavelengths of electromagnetisim bouncing off various objects and striking our eyes. when we see something black, we are, in fact, receiving no visible wavelengths from the object we are observing. This can lead to oneof two observations about black. The firsst is detailed in Recluse:

    Black can be representative of order. This is becuase black excludes everything from it. And doing so, being all-exclusive,is the only way one can be truly ordered. And, while I am a Chaotic Rogue, I have enough order in me to be a cleric, which is more ordered than most chaotic beings. Aye, 'tis true that I lean towards the Neutral end of the spectrum, in fact.

    Black can also be represntative of Good. Lets face it, I admit that I'm good-aligned. The color black is quite famous for its low albedio, or reflectivity. It absorbs Heat, light and various other energy forms without immediatly turning it around and doling it out (which other, bright colors, such as white and yellow are all too happy to do). It takes our battering for as, acting as a shield. Its little known, that, IRL, I exhibit Martyr-ish tendancies.

    Black can also, as an extension of Order, represent Death (Hey, look, REcluse-readers, I'mcoming back to you, sorry about that "good" tangent!). Becuase, as it rejects everything, it is purely Ordered, and as it absorbs energy, it is all-encompassing. Death fits this bill to a tee. It rejects outsides from knowing about it, ut will, eventually, claim all energy, and absorb it into itself. I am forced to believe this is where Black gets its Evil rep -
    (Black=Death, Death=Evil, therefore, Black=Evil.) - People's own fear of Death.

    I have always had a Death complex (IRL, my intials are DEF, just imagine a (American) elementary school kid pronoiuncing "deaf", the most common mis-pronunciation is, of course, "Death". I was called Death even in my early years.
    Also, Thanatos MEANS Death in Greek, a fact our good I'm Da Rogue has clearly testified to.

    It is for these reasons I am suited to be Black itp.
    If you just skipped down to the bottom, I don't blame you.

    2) My Wings are White.
    3) In the Outside World (if there is one) I always wear White.
    4) I'm wearing White right now.
    5) Apparently, some people don't know who to vote as White! I'm making it easier on you!

    Vote Dallas-Dakota for Blue in the playground!

    Why?

    Becouse blue is the color of the sky
    And I can flyyyy in the skyyyyy

    Becouse blue is my favorite colour

    Becouse I one of the few colors I wears is blue(not counting black)

    Becouse Blue is the color of my fur

    Becouse blue is the color of water
    I am in touch and peace with water, its awesome.

    Becouse, i'm listening to the blues, even right now!

    Becouse most of my stuff is blue.

    Becouse I'm male, and they always put up those blue little flags when boys are born and pink when girls are born.

    Yes, I would have the quiz results Castaras did, only I dont becouse she already did, but they also count for me.

    I'm making it easier for you people who cant decide for blue, just vote me.

    and banjo, should run for pink, its a happy&upright color, much like himself.

    And Thanatos, why me for pink? I'm sooo much more like blue.

    So, vote, vote, vote for me as Blue In The Playground!

    Pssh. The true candidate for Blue in the playground is I! Dr. Bath!

    Whilst at this moment in time I am not particularly blue, it is my inner blue-ness that should be the deciding factor. If you remember I was Shojo in the playground, one of the blue-est peolpe around, surely the leader of the saphire guard would be considered blue?

    Talking of inner blueness, what is inside a bath? Water, that's what. And clear, blue water at that. Not forgetting my bubblebath (also blue) and showercap (blue again), it should be obvious that I am the best choice for blue in the playground.

    *steps off soapbox, back into bath*

    *steps back on to soapbox*

    Alternitively you could vote Dr. Bath white in the playground.

    White. Symbolising cleanliness, purity, wisdom. Who better represents that than a Doctor. In a bath.

    Vote Dr. Bath whatever you like! Today!
