Subject: Results of Bungie's Platform Wars

The clash of arms is stilled, flags lie in tatters, the wounded twitch on the field - PLATFORM WARS is ended. As the only multiplayer action-strategy game that allows gamers on both the MacOS and Win95 platforms to compete on a truly level playing field, Bungie Software's game Myth: The Fallen Lords was the setting for this tournament of fast-paced and bloody strategy gaming.

At the GenCon Game Fair last week in Milwaukee, two Champions met in glorious combat to win honor for their computing platform and a 1/10 scale statue of a Trow. Each was a master of multiplayer Myth, each had aleady come out ahead of 498 other contenders and already won a high-end machine of their chosen platform.

Mundred, representing the Win95 platform and Panamon, representing the MacOS, fought four battles. In the end, Panamon held the Trow aloft in victory.
