Dec 9, 2009 The Rise and Fall of the Lich King: Screenshot Contest
The cold winds of the north are not stayed by armor or weaponry, but slip through the chinks in the armor and bite at the flesh beneath. The Scourge answers to but one king and he is a terrifying foe. Enter the heroes of the Horde and the Alliance to match steel with steel and face down this walking terror and his minions in the cold steppes of Northrend.

We're looking for your best screenshot of your own effort to put a damper on the machinations of the Lich King and the Scourge in Northrend; you could win a Rise of the Lich King Stein.
