Lanko, being the only one guessing correctly I wrote skin of the jaguar god, just because he so vehemently argued I wrote his own damned story? That would bite me in the ass. And I was 100% sure it was him all along too. No one else could have swooped in like that after me, while I was two days late!!
I knew it!

 5/12 not very good score this time. Ashamed I got TOMunro wrong and yes, swapped Lanko with Nora because  I thought Lanko was in a steamy jungle and Nora was eating people again. Fooled   :-[

The Chain Golem: The Gem Cutter
The Rye Mother: Jmack
The Shuck: Alex Hormann
Hellhound: Rukaio_Alter

@Alex Hormann I can't tell you what in particular makes your stories distinctive, except your English language use and style stands out for me, in a good way of course. Sometimes the way your story reflects or approaches a theme has your hall mark, but I've never analysed it closely enough to be able to explain. Always enjoy your stories even, if I vote otherwise.  I just checked and I got you right last time.  ;D   

One cheaty kind of clue is telling difference between English and Americans writers here as well, just little turns of phrase or usage, (not obvious ones like no 'u'  ;)) so that's first step of guessing.
