All right, so as much as we love our duels around here, it's time to organize these things so the kids aren't just butchering each other at random in the streets.
So, WELCOME TO THUNDERDOME.
Going forward I'm going to keep this thread updated with challenges and their results, themes/prompts for competitors, and the links to the actual duel stories.
I'll be laying out an explanation of the process here too so that no one has to explain it to every random noob.
1.) When two agree to (honorable?) battle, they'll be scheduled for the first available weekend. Due to voters needing time to read and hopefully comment on all these, and Darius or someone else having to host them, we're gonna limit this to no more than two duels a week, or in other words four stories assuming everyone shows up. It'll be on a first come first serve basis, so get in line.
2.) Prompts will be given Thursday night, duels will run from Friday to 11:59 CDT Sunday night. (My time, because if we did this on Darius's time it would cut out seven hours on Sunday for most of you, and I know most of you won't be starting these until
3.) All stories should be 2000 words or less, and must be sent to Darius before the deadline. He'll then make a thread to post them anonymously, and voting will be open about four days--ending as the next duel starts--unless there's some exception made.
4.) All participants will be rewarded a commendation. Winners (going forward, I'm not digging up any old threads) will receive ten points. Anyone who agrees to a duel and then doesn't show up will be FINED ten points.
If for some reason you agree to a duel but then realize you won't be able to make it, then you need to inform us of what a shameful disappointment you are as soon as possible. There might still be time to bring in the designated SECRET DUELER to salvage the match.
5.) If you want to be tagged to future duel threads for voting, say so in here.
Now get out there and kill each other, for great glory or something.
