After a long deliberation by the judges, OLWEN wins!
Prizes will be given out soon.

The tournament went down like this:


For those interested in reading the duel, it can be found on the wiki here: OLWEN vs. VEHARA.

Also of note: I considering what I've been calling 'Dueling Season' to be at a close. The next tournament that I host will not be until December. More information will be available closer to that timeframe.

The Rajan Rumble 2024
Published Date 2024-05-16T12:54:31

Our mini-tournaments have been pretty popular, so here is information for the third.
Since Haavi won the poll for the last tournament, the next tournament will be held in Rajan.

This tournament has something special in place: a randomizer.
Participants will have a random, non-permanent ability generated for them at the beginning of the duel. Use of this power/ability is mandatory, but it does not have to be the only thing you use. Abilities/powers your character already has are still acceptable as long as you also make use of the random ability you've been temporarily granted.
The power will assume to come with knowledge on how to utilize it, and it is temporary, for the duel only, and will disappear from your character following their stint in the tournament.
Also of note: there is a space in the middle of the Rajan arena that allows you to heal your character. Potions and natural healing abilities will not work in the arena, only the healing pit. You need to stand in the flames to see how well your character is healed prior to utilizing it in your duel post. For clarification on this, ask VICTORIA.

Just like the last mini-tournament, the duels will be judged by The Assembly of Judges, so you are allowed to request feedback whether you win or lose. To request feedback, you'll need to send a MUDmail to Hojn.
If you would like to opt out of receiving a critique and/or feedback and would just like the votes sent to you, please tell VICTORIA prior to your first duel. If you select this option, there is no backtracking once the votes have been sent out. You will receive absolutely no feedback.

There are FOUR (4) slots available unless enough people sign up where a full tournament can be held. I require EIGHT (8) participants to hold a full tournament. This may possibly be subject to change.

The pair-ups will be determined by dice roll (specifically, /roll 20).

Tournament Rules

1. All duels must be completed in the Rajan Arena. (Clarification: Leaving the arena in your post can get you disqualified.) If you are unsure where this is, ask me. You can also type twist to rajan if you have a glass ring, then type rajan map to bring up a link to a map you can look at to find your way to the Arena.
2. No godmoding or autohits. If you don't know what these are, please ask. You can also use the /roll 10 command if you'd like to, but it isn't mandatory.
3. You must include whatever power/ability arises from the randomizer in your post for that round. Failure to do so will be counted against you.
4. If you are a shifter that can change or turn someone into what you are, then you are not allowed to do anything that would achieve that result, aka, no turning your opponent into a shifter. This also includes vampires/vampirism.
5. Please keep the climate/surroundings in mind.
6. Inflicting maladies upon your opponent is okay, but it cannot be anything permanent/lasting beyond one round.
7. No disrespect of the judges and/or combatants is allowed. Disrespect can be defined as complaining about their judgment, belittling an opponent's win, or bad attitude surrounding a loss. If this rule is broken, you will be barred from future tournaments hosted by yours truly. Obviously, this is an OOC rule.
8. Please try to keep posts between 15-20 minutes. A timer bot has been added to our discord server that will send a notification when it runs out. It has the time left on it for reference, so be sure to check frequently. Going over your allotted time can lead to disqualification, at the discretion of the judges.
9. Have fun!

Tournament Prizes

WINNER
1.. 10,000 Gold.
2. Access to Game Secrets.
3. A port to the road, and a port to a place of your choosing.

RUNNER UP
1. 5,000 Gold.
2. Chance to win access to game secrets (not a guaranteed win).

Other than the gold, in-character prizes for the winner include:
1. A Home in Rajan, specifically a treehouse in any section of the forest you prefer.
2. A special favor from the Emperor, within reason.

Please request entry as a combatant by June 1st, 2024 so that we can hopefully get the tournament started by June 2nd, 2024 if you wish to participate. If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to me!

Spectators are welcome for all duels! If you're interested in watching, the Karchan Discord Server is the best place for updates on the mini-tournament, in addition to combatants planning when to duel. I highly suggest looking at the 'tourney' channel there as things progress. If you have read this far and wish to sign up for the tournament, you need to send a MUDmail to Victoria with the character you plan on participating that says: I am in & Banana pudding. No DMs, no message in the tourney channel will do. Actual MUDmail. Also refer to the section about the AOJ and whether or not you want a critique so we have that out of the way. Gotta make sure you're reading everything thoroughly!

Hope to see you all there!

The space below will be where I keep the image with the lineup, once people have signed up and have executed their rolls to determine who fights who:

The Haavi Heat Wave
Published Date 2024-04-16T15:22:22

Since everyone seemed to enjoy the Styxx Gorge Skirmish, I have decided to hold another.
A poll was set in place on the Karchan Discord Server, with the two options for the next setting being Haavi or Rajan. Haavi won by just one vote, so I present to you: THE HAAVI HEAT WAVE!
As a reminder, Haavi is a desertous country way to the far south of Karchan, so imagine blistering heat and intense sun.

This tournament has something special in place: a randomizer.
At the beginning of each duel, the participant that wins the coin toss will get access to a special feature. This feature is a command that randomizes some form of chaos for each round.
Round one might include magma. Round two might include poison! It depends on the randomizer. Winner of the coin toss gets the special button pressing privileges. ;)

Just like the last mini-tournament, the duels will be judged by The Assembly of Judges, so you are allowed to request feedback whether you win or lose. To request feedback, you'll need to send a MUDmail to Hojn.

The pair-ups will be determined by dice roll (specifically, /roll 20).

Tournament Rules

1. All duels must be completed in the Feryoth Oasis (Haavi) Arena. If you are unsure where this is, ask me. You can also type twist to haavi if you have a glass ring, then type haavi map to bring up a link to a map you can look at to find your way to the Arena.
2. No godmoding or autohits. If you don't know what these are, please ask. You can also use the /roll 10 command if you'd like to, but it isn't mandatory.
3. You must include whatever ailment/problem arises from the randomizer in your post for that round. Failure to do so will be counted against you.
4. If you are a shifter that can change or turn someone into what you are, then you are not allowed to do anything that would achieve that result, aka, no turning your opponent into a shifter. This also includes vampires/vampirism.
5. Please keep the climate in mind. Haavi is a desertous country. Treat your surroundings as such.
6. Inflicting maladies upon your opponent is okay, but it cannot be anything permanent/lasting beyond one round.
7. No disrespect of the judges and/or combatants is allowed. Disrespect can be defined as complaining about their judgment, belittling an opponent's win, or bad attitude surrounding a loss. If this rule is broken, you will be barred from future tournaments hosted by yours truly. Obviously, this is an OOC rule.
8. Please try to keep posts between 15-20 minutes.
9. Have fun!

Tournament Prizes

WINNER
1.. 10,000 Gold.
2. Access to Game Secrets.
3. A port to the road, and a port to a place of your choosing.

RUNNER UP
1. 5,000 Gold.

Other than the gold, in-character prizes for the winner include:

2. A special favor from the Sultana, within reason.

Please request entry as a combatant by May 1st, 2024 so that we can hopefully get the tournament started by May 2nd, 2024 if you wish to participate. If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to me!

The Styxx Gorge Skirmish
Published Date 2024-03-19T09:13:32

Due to occasional requests and questions in general, I have decided to hold a mini-tournament. To do this, I need at least four combatants and three judges (the latter of which that are not entered into the fray). Since we have met those requirements, I'll be holding the STYXX GORGE SKIRMISH sometime in April!

If four more people sign up, I will do a full-fledged tournament, so if you're interested in being on the roster to fight, send me a MUDmail or reach out to me on the Discord with the character you'd like to enter. Otherwise, our little mini-tournament is just fine.

Judges are in the The Assembly of Judges, so you are allowed to request feedback whether you win or lose. To request feedback, you'll need to send a MUDmail to Hojn.

Tournament Rules

1. All duels must be completed in the Styxx Gorge Arena. If you are unsure where this is, ask me. You can also type twist to styxx gorge if you have a glass ring, then type styxx gorge map to bring up a link to a map you can look at to find your way to the Arena.
2. No poisoning of your opponent. Temporary maladies that are non-life threatening are allowed.
3. If you are a shifter that can change or turn someone into what you are, then you are not allowed to do anything that would achieve that result, aka, no turning your opponent into a shifter.
4. No mind control spells.
5.No autohits or godmoding. If you aren't sure what those are, please ask.
6. No disrespect of the judges and/or combatants is allowed. Disrespect can be defined as complaining about their judgment, belittling an opponent's win, or bad attitude surrounding a loss. If this rule is broken, you will be barred from future tournaments hosted by yours truly. Obviously, this is an OOC rule.
7. Have fun!

Tournament Prizes

WINNER
1. 10,000 gold.
2. Access to a few game secrets.
3. A wishing card to be cashed in at your leisure.

RUNNER UP
5,000 gold.

The current state of the tournament is here:


Combatants were paired up using the /roll 20 command, then paired up in order.

Please request entry as a combatant by April 1st, 2024 so that we can hopefully get the tournament started by April 8th, 2024 if you wish to participate. If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to me!

If you're interested in just watching the duels, our Discord will probably be where individuals do their planning to meet up and get the ball rolling. So if you just want to hang out in the audience, the Discord is the place to stalk for dates.

Here's hoping for a good time! See all of you there!
