I am happy to announce the winner of Character Contest 25 is ... Anarchangel!
The margin of victory was one vote, but even crazier is that the vote for second place was even closer -- it was a tie! So our two runners-up, who will also be featured in the banner on a rotating basis, were (in order they appear below) Psycko Sama and Hammerknight:
Anarchangel wins either one item of his choice, or a portrait of himself, either of which will appear in the final HeroMachine 3 release. Congratulations to him, and to both Hammerknight and Psycko Sama! Great job to everyone who entered, my thanks.
