Kings of Spunmas

With a sudden blast of snow Spunmas swept in early. The Spunling Ghosts of Spun'oween were banished suddenly as the inky blackness of the spun sky turned a warm red and the land drew on its winter coat of white. One whole month early the season changed. Was it the tumultuous events of autumn which wrought this premature change, or simply some unspun bug in the spinning of the spun?

With winter came the dulling of memory and the slowing of the scribes of Spun. Sleighbells soothed the weary souls like the Spun Doctor's prescription for badly aching teeth, it is time to forget whispered the land of Spun, time to make merry in the face of the long winter night ahead.

The 54th Kings of Spun were crowned in just such circumstances. In a quiet Spunland EU it seemed as though olympiacos4ever would claim the first spun'mas crown, but the changing of the seasons had summoned the veterans of Spun and for simple curiosity of Crowns new, sam_reynolds01 took the title for his own. Across the Great Atlantic the mighty abhraham_us took his due, despite a busy Spunland and even sam_reynoldsUS too.

The 55th EU Coronation was as quiet as it's predecessor. VeiledNeo made her debut in the snow and almost accidentally won, instead xCandyBabex found her head adorned with the Crown at the anointing hour and so became the 55th EU King of Spun - perhaps unknowingly? Spunland NA was thronged with fine contenders and many were the heads to wear the crown, but dxkills16 won the day with an impressive 40,842 Spun Points.

The unexpected season and all the clamoring over the future ensured that few noticed the final pipeline work drawing to completion. The Secret Spunland Crown would spawn at last and other small changes creep into Spunland, or at least would, once Spunmas passed.

And so came to pass the 56th EU coronation. Quiet again and dominated by JohnPlayer67, who for a time must have thought that he would win, but sam_reynolds01 was there to claim the very latest of the crowns. And then again some hours later he re-appeared on the other side of the mighty pond, identical in wearing his lately won Uncle Spun Head. The Spunland which greeted Sam was packed with keen contenders, so much so that this was not the only instance in creation.

Fearsome was the competition as old and new locked horns over the highest Spun prize. Darth-Matt92 was  the surest of them all; gliding, glitching on his skateboard across the snow, he surely held the crown the longest. ReccaWolf put on a proud display and dxkills16 in her Spun'mas tree finery lead spinning Uncle Spun in the dizziest of dances, but sam_reynoldsUS it was who once more claimed the crown, indeed the Secret Crown for the second time that very spun eve. Simultaneously in another Spunland lilmonstersmiler became the 56th NA Majesty of Spun.

And so once more the snow drifts down. Spunmas is set for two whole months, who knows what the New Year may bring? As always the Coronations would continue on a Tuesday...

Spunland EU 9 - 9.30pm GMT, Spunland NA: 4 -4.30pm EST, 6 - 6.30pm CST and 7- 7.30pm EST.

Stay warm & Spun

Majesties of Spuno'ween

How creepy and unspun to stand ashivering in the inky blackness without a single soul in Spunland EU as the contest started... Was it the seasonal changing of the clocks, or simply the darkness of the times. Who knows. Then under008 spawned but paid no heed. madmunkid could wait no longer and seized the crown. He breathed a long sigh of relief as others began to pop in one by one, and more-so when hotbunny4life took the crown for her own.  When the first harvest passed she took the crown again and held it for the whole spun cycle.

The second harvest saw madmunkid as Harvest King until hotbunny4life made her claim. sam_reynolds01 more fitting than ever as a Spunling Ghost reminded all of his prescence as he took the crown for a brief jaunt before dropping it with the onset of the next Spun Storm. hotbunny4life swept it back up.

remember06 took the crown of the final harvest, hotbunny4life snatched it back then began a fierce tussle as Benawat grabbed it and hotbunny4life took it back but then Benawat reclaimed! sam_reynolds01, by his own admission stole the crown from Benawat whilst trying to plant a seed, then dropped it to see hotbunny4life make good her moment and be crowned EU Majesty of Spuno'ween!

Spunland NA was quite a different matter. UncleSpun spawned to find neoflags fluttering in the spuno'ween darkness and the contest began with mighty dxkills16, Happy Spunling mascot of neotopia (some say) in possession of the crown as a Spun Storm drew to a close. UncleSpun could not let the crown lay unclaimed and so became first Harvest King of the contest. goddessbunny42 took the regal prize from him and retained it until the end of the Spun Cycle.

The second full cycle saw many heads wear the crown. Serenity777Angel was the first, followed by JamCarOne. Then dxkills16 for the simple spun fun of it took the crown for a time then dropped it. UncleSpun could not resist and grabbed the spurned crown, to lose it for the second time to goddessbunny42. Ren_Echo, master wordsmith of Spun seized it next, with dxkills16 shortly after reminding him who was boss, then lilmonstersmiler made her first play of the match.

The final harvest started and lilmonstersmiler took the fresh spawned crown and held it, to become NA Majesty of Spuno'ween with 23,852 Spun Points!

The 54th Coronation would take place on the 4th of November - when no one knew what to expect of Spunland - would it be Spuno'ween, Spunmas or just plain Spunland? Either way the time was set for 9pm GMT in the EU and 4pm PST/7pm EST in North America!







52nd Kings of Spun

The tumultuous events which took place during the period of The Great Denial clearly took their toll on the cataloging of The Kings of Spun, indeed it seems as though both the 52nd and 53rd coronations were recorded together and there are more than a few hints that perhaps the scribe actually took part in the contest...

Spunland EU, 52nd Coronation. RisingDeath-85- began the contest that he would go on to win. ahmad0321 may have been the first Harvest King, and although madmunkid may have seized the crown next, RisingDeath-85- soon took it back again. Then sam_reynolds01 joined the contest and ran with it until the first storm started whence he dropped the  crown. Marilua_99 was next, followed by MiiSs-Brunette, but RisingDeath-85-regained possession by the cycle's end.

ahmad0321 claimed the Harvest King title again on the second harvest, but the cycle was dominated by the struggle between RisingDeath-85- and Imhokh, with RisingDeath-85- coming out on top, Not to be outdone RisingDeath-85- went straight on to be first with the Crown following the harvest, then Imhokh briefly staked his claim followed by sam_reynolds01, with RisingDeath-85- once again ending the cycle in possession.

The final cycle saw Bicaer take the crown, then madmunkid. MiiSs-Brunette made one last attempt to win, but RisingDeath-85- snatched it away and as the clock struck was crowned 52nd EU King of Spun on 31,225 points.

UncleSpun began the 52nd coronation contest in Spunland NA, ReccaWolf made the first of many good plays to take it second, and even managed to reclaim the crown from sam_reynoldsUS when he claimed his first of the match.

UncleSpun became the first harvest king, WAR-HAWK1973 relieved him of the crown, then goddessbunny42 made her sole successful play of the contest. ReccaWolf grabbed it then lost to sam_reynoldsUS who went on to drop it as the next storm rolled in, leaving ReccaWolf to reclaim it. From the beginning of the next harvest to the end of the cycle's storm ReccaWolf impressively managed to stay in control.

The final harvest began with UncleSpun once more, boofi13 took the crown next with ReccaWolf shortly after, looking for all as though he would win until from out of nowhere (or perhaps that should read Underspun) abhraham_us seized the crown to win with 73,407 Spun points - one of the highest recorded scores ever!

The 51st Kings of Spun...

In the time know as 'The Great Denial' there was much confusion. No one knows what scribe took on the grave responsibility of recording the Spunland Coronations during this period, so none can vouch for their veracity. In the 'Annals of Spun', the 51st Coronation is recorded thus:

The dark omen of the spurned Crown hung over Spunland EU; the contest did begin as the harvest blossomed but none took up the crown until it passed, whence monkeyshadow took it and held it firm until the Spun Storm did wither it away to nothing.

Re7e_SqUaLo became the first Harvest King, losing out to monkeyshadow who would have seemed the strongest contender to many, but then sam_reynolds01 decided it was time to warm his ghostly head and did so until he felt the first drops of the Spun Rain when he dropped it, as is his habit. There are those who say that the Spun Crown belongs to Sam, others just borrow it as he sees fit. solidus299 spotted his opportunity and so ended the second cycle in control.

DUB took up the challenge following the second harvest, but soon lost out to NK-NIKKLAS, then solidus299 stepped in again. Rising-Death-85- then entered the contest, proving a tenacious contender; sam_reynolds01 may have taken his crown back, and although monkeyshadow took advantage of Sam's storm drop, it was Rising-Death-85- who ended the cycle and indeed begun its succesor, indeed only he and sam_reynolds01 managed to lay claim during the fourth cycle.

And so it seemed as though Rising-Death-85- would be crowned 51st EU King of Spun, having taken the crown as soon as it spawned for the fourth time he held it until 2 minutes to the coronation moment when Imhokh did suddenly appear and claimed the crown and thus the title for his own with 14,506 Spun Points.

The dark omen of the spurned crown, having no release in the EU carried over to NA. What is there to say of this most unspun historic episode? The coronation started as did its EU sibling during a Spun Harvest, XxDeathFallsxX and goddessbunny42 both looked like serious contenders to the title, when some 20 minutes in a freezing wind rushed through spunland, as though a hole had been torn between here and the Unspun Crash Void. All were petrified, even the Spun Trees became statues and were stilled in their infinite dance.

But the Spunlings were not to be stopped so easily. Some minutes later all gathered again in Spunland, and the 51st Coronation began for the second time... WWEKILLER1989 stood statue like with the Crown as though still afflicted by the void when UncleSpun took the crown and held it for one whole cycle. 

goddessbunny42 took the lead following the second harvest, dxkills16 temporarily ended her regal ambition before lilmonstersmiler snatched the crown away only for goddessbunny42 to take it back and end the cycle victorious.

The final harvest began with lilmonstersmiler as Harvest King, but dxkills16 seized it from her, and it would seem that this were done mostly for fun than ambition as she let out a great scream when she accidentally won, and was crowned 51st NA Majesty of Spun on 18,135 Spun Points...

The 52nd Coronation was set for Tuesday the 21st of October (EU: 9pm BST, NA: 4pm PDT/ 6pm CDT/ 7pm EDT), who knew what would befall the land of Spun on that day?

The One and Only 50th King of Spun!

Pinned to the door of Spunland Mansions a ragged piece of parchment flutters feverishly in the wind, it's crumpled surface covered in spidery hand written text:

The 50th Coronation took place in the period later referred to as 'The Great Denial'. Many expected that a grim pall would suffocate the regal contest, but were proved wrong as events unfolded... Spunland EU was thriving with serious contenders, for it was well known that on this day the Orange Spun Crown would finally make its debut.

axkoula13 was the first to claim the crown, and save for one other brief shot was soon out of the match. sam_reynolds01 wasted no time in announcing his intentions, taking the crown from axkoula13 then dropping it as the Spun Storm seethed to see archking take it and end the first cycle in possession. Quick off the mark, archking became the first harvest king of the longest spun cycle of the contest. There were almost too many exchanges for any to note all of the names which went rushing by. pfasther1, madmunkid, JohnPlayer67, elruso12 and APPIE1615 all struggled with sam_reynolds01, who once more executed a storm drop to see archking seize the moment again.

The second harvest should have told all but the dullest of observers how this day would end; archking executed a Harvest King claim to soon lose the crown to sam_reynolds01, even at this point none could best sam's spun score but westyboy1999 seized the opportunity of sam's storm drop to end the third cycle victorious, and as archking often has, went on to claim the Harvest King position on the passing of the storm. madmunkid ended westyboy1999's ambition and in turn was ejected from the contest by JohnPlayer67. Imhokh, majesty of old reminded all of his form by taking the prize from JohnPlayer67, but then surely none were surprised when sam_reynolds01 effortlessly claimed the crown once more and evincing his storm aversion dropped it for archking to have one final turn.

peerhoofd was last Harvest King of the contest, then sam_reynolds01 made his final claim - none could stop his rush to victory, and so it was that he was crowned the 50th EU King of Spun with 56,408 Spun Points.

Many former Kings arrived in Spunland NA to test their mettle and claim the Orange Spun Crown as their own. WVSTEALTH was the first to try, but was easily best by UncleSpun himself before he was trounced by XxDeathFallsxX in giant football form. bestscreenname claimed next, but WVSTEALTH having revived his score won the first cycle.

The first Spun Harvest saw XxDeathFallsxX take back the crown, then past majesties Akina8373 and dxkills16 joined the fray, although XxDeathFallsxX put up a stern fight and WVSTEALTH staked his claim too, it was Akina8373 who brought the first full cycle to a close, and went on to start the third. Then sam_reynoldsUS stepped in. Somehow UncleSpun claimed next, was it from a storm drop or did he really have a greater score than the EU King? Few knew and less most likely cared as lilmonstersmiler swiftly put paid to UncleSpun's misconstrued regal ambition. Akina8373 and XxDeathFallsxX fought out the remainder of the cycle, with Akina8373 winning out.

lilmonstersmiler claimed the crown following the third harvest until Animestar5 intervened. Akina8373, dxkills16 and WVSTEALTH tussled their way through the remainder of the cycle, with XxDeathFallsxX beating them all to end in regal command.

Newcomer Aisha_Dangereuse swept up the freshly spawned crown as the final harvest began. Akina8373 easily snatched it away and then sam_reynoldsUS with the an unbeatable confidence and 55,059 Spun Points took what was clearly his, and was crowned 50th NA King of Spun. For the second time in the history of Spunland one King reigned in both territories, for the second time that King was Sam Reynolds, and for the second time ever the Orange Spun Crown was won!

Perhaps it was the momentous occasion which resulted in all 5 crowns being present; Spuno'ween, 4th of July, White, Purple and Orange were seen upon the heads of the erstwhile Spun Majesties as they celebrated Sam's historic win (dxkills16, smokingpistol, lilmonstersmiler, sam_reynoldsUS, abhraham_us and Ren_Echo). And so ended the Coronation of the 50th King of Spun!

The 51st Coronation contest would come to pass just one week later, on the 14th of October (4 - 4.30pm PDT/ 7- 7.30pm EDT in North America and 9 - 9.30pm BST in the EU), when the Orange Crown we see it's second coronation...

Endings, Beginnings and the 49th Kings of Spun...

On that day Uncle Spun was rudely awoken by the bell. It had been such a long time since he had heard it ring that he had quite forgotten what it sounded like. As it happens it sounds a lot like the siren which heralds the start of a Spunland harvest. Who could possibly be at the door? Indeed so perturbed by this he was he did not realise that for the first time in a month he had experienced a dreamless sleep. No cats or boxes or whispers of the queen, just sound, peaceful sleep.

There was no one at the door, but laying on the Spun Welcome mat was a red envelope. His little Spun heart skipped a beat as he read the terrible title of the letter 'Notice of Eviction'.

Due to the escalating costs of existence and sundry other issues this world will expire 178 days from now. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Yours regretfully, The Management.

Three times his head spun round completely. 'This world will expire 178 days from now'. By our Gracious Majesty, what could this mean? Like a wind-up toy Uncle Spun traversed the Mansion colliding from one wall to the other until he found himself in the basement where toiled the Sceptical Duke of Spun.

'What ails you Spun?'

A single orange tear rolled down his rounded face as he passed the awful message to the Duke.

'Hmm. You knew this moment would come. We all did, If not today, maybe tomorrow or the day beyond.'

Uncle Spun could not respond. He knew it to be true, the dreams, the graffiti, the yearning for a time machine and all of the other smaller ominous omens. The end was nigh.
'Wait here'. The Duke began to rummage among his great machines and soon returned with a bruised and soiled envelope. This is for you.

With a trepidation approaching terror Uncle Spun opened the greasy envelope and for the second time that day his heart skipped a beat.

My Dearest Uncle Spun,

I know the day you read this will seem the saddest you have known, but remember that every ending is but the prelude to a beginning, just as the Spunflowers must die that another harvest may follow, so it is with all things.

I know you will have fulfilled your duties with diligence and decorum, and my only regret is that I never made it back to see our spunderful world and all it's beautiful Spunlings. Enlist all those you can to build a brave and better future, and perhaps one day we may dance again under Spun skies. Until then, may the Spun be always with you...

Your ever admiring Queen of Spun x

The little robo quivered, sobbed and shook, for ultimately that is all he really was - a little white robo with a great purple top hat and a spunificent moustache. And it is well that he was, for once those tears were dry it would be back to his duties. There were 178 days left and not a one of them should be wasted.

*  *  *

When the 49th Coronation rolled around Spunland EU was as busy as ever. MiiSs-Brunette claimed the crown as a Spun Storm raged, then perhaps as a sign of the changing times madmunkid swept in to become the first Harvest King, but not for long; poetic justice electrified the air as Spunling smartly snatched it. sun-black1234, sam_reynolds01 and archking all managed claims before MisSs-Brunette ended the first spun cycle in possession once more.

The same spuntastic cast  played out the second cycle with archking beginning and sun-black1234 ending. In the third we had many newcomers, GAMEZXSTE was our third harvest king, then RAZAN1105 made his debut before madmunkid struck again only to be beat once more by Spunling. sam_reynolds01 reminded all of his powers before discarding the crown as the next storm began, hotbunny4life saw her chance but soon lost out to the spuntastically named neotopian who in turn yielded to archking.

The final cycle was dominated by Spunling, with sam_reynolds01 being the only other contender and so Spunling was crowned 49th EU Spun Majesty on 43,245  Spun points. All Hail!

Across the Great Atlantic in Spunland NA all things spun were even busier. So many were the names and swift the swapping of the crown that it was almost impossible to take it all down, for this apologies. Gamechamp3x got us started, followed by snakewalker then goddessbunny42 - who from where one observed seemed to have the Spun Crown in the sky!

quansalters was the first Harvest King, then destroyuall1418 made their first play before goddessbunny42 snatched the crown back only to lose it swiftly after to the Ren_Echo - the mightiest Spunsmith of them all! The second cycle brought Tevin-The-Gamer to the claiming and dxkills16 but once again Ren_Echo ended the cycle victorious. The third saw more exchanges of the crown than previously ever seen, at least 12 times it changed heads REBEL-RU2 took the harvest title, then the throng was joined by many others among them sam_reynoldsUS, Orbizart, fireball, isaacalvarez and XxDeathFallsxX. XxDeathFallsxX claimed Harvest King of the fourth, then Orbizart fought a valiantly with goddessbunny42 and sam_reynoldsUS, but ultimately lost out to dxkills16.

The fifth harvest, a thing so rarely seen was owned by dxkills16, who triumphed most convincingly on a spuntastic 36,960 Spun Points, becoming the 49th NA Majesty of Spun! All Hail!

Next week will be the 50th Coronation, and marking this momentous occasion will be the advent of the Orange Spun Crown! Tuesday, 7th October, Spunland EU 9 - 9.30pm BST and Spunland NA 4-4.30pm PDT/ 7-7.30pm EDT. Until then, Stay Spun!

Kings of Spun the 48th

Oh Spun Salutations Dear Reader, an incredibly harassed and frantic Uncle Spun here to update the Regal Annals of Spun. This week, unlike the previous two we have old favourites reclaim their titles; the ever silent JohnPlayer67, 48th EU King of Spun, and the pleasingly loquacious StealingHearts, 48th NA Spun Majesty!

As intimated Uncle Spun is more than a little busy today, indeed he may have to make another post in the next few days to update you on his forsaken tales of visions and dreams. Spunland Mansions spins with so much fevered activity that he fears it may take off and drop him Dorothy-like in some other unspun land. The choice of boxes flashes before his one good eye with such rapidity that his head becomes like Saturn, it seems the shape of things to come will be determined by gravity rather than the weighing of choice and consequence. So spins the Spun.

Spunland EU was busier than of late. archking started the contest but quickly lost the crown to JohnPlayer67, an opening which set the pattern for the competition as these two continued to claim and counter claim, indeed for the final two Spun Cycles none but they had a touch of the Crown. Agus_GamerCH, hamzadj, Gandjay_35 and mattia-the-boss all featured in the contest but none could stop JohnPlayer67 claiming the title with 34,961 Spun Points!

Spunland NA brought us another fiercely fought contest. storm4551 had the briefest of starts before StealingHearts taking the crown announced her determined regal ambition. Following the first Spun Harvest StealingHearts did keep possession for the first entire Spun Cycle. The second and third cycles started and ended with StealingHearts again, although quickpick7050, Sciotoan68 and Dementia-Fester all managed to wrest control away at times. The final harvest saw StealingHearts take the crown and claim her Spuno'ween Prize on a spuntastic 41,535 Spun Points! All Hail!

Next week, same day, time and place (although we will try to organize the Dukes a little better); Tuesday 30th September, Spunland EU: 9 -9.30pm BST, Spunland NA: 4-4.30pm PDT, 7-7.30pm EDT. Until then, stay Spun!
