Well, might as well make a list at this point. First come first served. If someone does challenge me to a duel, then I would like to include point wagers in addition to Mizal's already perfectly presented and delivered duel structure.
First come, first served. If these people are still willing in the new year, then I will throw my gauntlet in the ring and take on each and every one. Anyone else that would like to join in, then feel free.
Soy No More
Soy No More again
Corgi (the best DM)
If there is someone here that might also be interested, then fell free to tag them and if the would like to, I will add them to the list.
Sure, I'm down. :)
Sure, why not. Locked
Edit: Well now I can't edit that post.
I guess I'll add briefly that newbs aren't the only people I'm willing to duel. They have the least to lose by doing this, so there might be more of them here, but my invitation extends to everyone on the site. Heavy weights and newbs alike. Everyone should feel free to come and wager their pen and points agaisnt my own.
Well there goes my attempt at a quick edit before anyone noticed.
I haven't been active around here recently, but I've been lurking in all of these little duels. While I have no quelms with you, I would love to be put on a bracket should this turn into a tournament. My chances of winning are probably very low, but this format seems like a fun challenge. If a bracket is made then throw me on the list! Hopefully I can make some time to actually write in Janurary... 2500 words shouldn't be too bad.
I don't think it will end up being too brackety unless Mizal changes the format a bit. Welcome back, and welcome to open season.
Yeah, well, one can hope! Being in a duel for the fun of it will be fun enough though. We will see how it goes.
6 so far. At this rate these might carry into February.
Honestly Im more or less on your side but I feel you've talked a bit too much shit about short stories.so I'll throw my hat in the ring. Just to be clear no hard feelings best of luck and I hope you crush most of these people.
@mizal am I allowed to enter this time around? If so, then I want Soy to battle me before he goes to Ebon. If he cannot even defeat a libcuck like me, then he really has no chance. It also saves Ebon the effort.
For some reason, Soy has gained the fascinating ability of irritating the heck out of me.
Like the saying "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" and "the lesser of two evils" goes, while I harbor a general vague disinterest/disdain for Ebon's cowardice, Soy really grates my nerves with his unprovoked and uncreative insults. Whining, screaming and spamming "faggot" like a spoilt child with a rattle is not the way to gain the title of the supreme edgelord or a good way to claw yourself out of your piling vile mass of debt.
@soy_no_more , you're a disgrace to gen Z, just so you know.
And I really want to get my own little feud/drama/story arc going and have beef with someone! (Since everyone else is doing it and Soy has plenty of time anyways.)
I'll join, I haven't been that active here in a while and I need to write more, this will be a good opportunity.
I might as well enter. Seems fun
One larger Battle Royale mega duel could work: ten noobs go in, only one comes out.
In fairness it'd probably be less to read if it was a single mega duel. At this point Ebon has thirteen challengers and, assuming he battles them two on one (with the 13th challenger being a 1v1 with someone who has a chance of taking him on), that's 20 stories in total (13 for the challengers and 7 Ebon would have to write). If it's one big duel it'd only be 14 stories total and since only one would win it'd mean that's several of the lesser stories probably wouldn't even be read once people realise they're not up to scratch.
Then again there's no way I'd want anything to be detrimental to Ebon's honour of all things.
Oh no. I'm with you on this one Green. Just because I'm "willing" to do so doesn't mean I really want to do some of these. I'd much prefer if there was some type of vetting process to make sure all of the fun ones get to me, and the pointless ones don't, but Mizal officialized this so it's her call on what flies I guess.
I imagine some aren't going to show up anyway.
Case and point.
See, Daji gets me.
You can take me off the list. Mine isn't a gurduge match, so I don't mind it being canceled. I'll find someone to duel because of a personal vendetta eventually.
I duel you, queer
Sounds good. I'll stay on the list for now and quietly drop out later if the line is too long...
Oh, hey Corgi. Welcome.
Corgi has challenged your heterosexuality, and you don't defend it? Curious, to say the least.
I already stated I'm straight a few days ago. I shouldn't need to repeat myself everytime a dog comes barking...pun intended.
I distinctly recall you saying this.
I also remember him saying this. Something about loving roses, too.
Posting this just so you know I'm still down for these. December got super busy for me, but I should be able to do a duel each Monday-Wednesday chunk. However Mizal prefers.
So when Is the duel? I just wanna know so I can mentally prepare.
I assume we're going in chronological order of challenges, so you're in a few weeks at least
Allright, Sounds good.
Hello all. I wanted to go ahead and start this process, and get some of these duels started. Our glorious mods do have lives, so I figured I'd just make the process for them a bit easier and gauge overall interest in this.
I think this is everyone. Respond if you would still like to duel.
What Is going on can someone explain this to me?
OH a duel with stories, I get It now!
It's Ebon season so yes
Idk why but I feel like I have been under a rock. does anyone know when these events will occour?
To be decided.
I'm still down.
Still interested in this.
I'm still up for the challenge.
Yeah so Mizal isn't interested in any of this shit anymore due to Ebon flaking out for the contest since he essentially failed before he even started.
At this point she'd rather just see Ebon shut the fuck up and go away and I can't say I blame her. Ebon would have been better off staying dead with how much he's destroyed his own rep here.
Green, in a desire to have more responsibility befitting of a Dark Lord's daughter, wants to oversee the contest and judge it.
Also befitting of a Dark Lord's daughter she doesn't want to see poncy one on one faggotry that's going to take forever to judge. She wants instant gratification and blood.
So we're not having a bunch of duels, we're having a mass gladiator battle where everyone is going to just submit a story and Green will pick ONE winner.
A new thread will be made later. Stay tuned!
