Round 2

Who would win in a fight between Ming Huang and Blaze Knight?

Click to view at full size.

Characters
MING HUANG
Name: Ming Huang (明皇 prn. míng huáng)
Race: Human; Class: Mage
In short: Wicked’s brash and arrogant younger brother. Despite his effeminate looks, he is a mage of considerable power.
A very feminine-looking and hot-headed fellow, Ming Huang bears a grudge against Prince when the latter mistakes him for a girl, thus sparking their first conflict. Interestingly enough, he seems to swear more violently than any other character. He is also Wicked’s younger brother in real life. As a mage, Ming Huang specializes in lightning-type magic, which is particularly destructive.
THE BLAZE KNIGHT
“Sun!” Real name: ???
Age: 20+
Hair color: Red; Eye colour: Amber
Widely regarded as: A person with fiery red hair with a temper to match, and who worships the Sun Knight.
A member of the “good, warm-hearted” faction, Blaze is one of the rare members whose real personality matched the Blaze Knight persona. He is a strong swordsman who also specializes in purifying flames that could cleanse the spirit.
Tournament and Contest Rules

Tournament Rules:

  1. In a comment, state who you think would win and why. You must give a solid reason in order for your vote to be counted (not X is hotter than Y). Remember, this is a fighting tournament not a beauty pageant!
  2. One clear winner only. No ties.
  3. One vote per person.
  4. At the end of the month we’ll count up all votes and announce the winner at the start of the next match. Winners will proceed to the next round of the tournament.
  5. The tournament takes place much like the Adventurers’ Tournament, in a stadium filled with spectators, with no outside interference allowed. The match ends by concession or death.

Writing Competition:

We are having an additional writing competition on top of the tournament. This will be separate from the monthly competitions we have in the forum and the challenge will be the same every time:

In no more than 2000 words, write a scene for how this month’s match would go.

For example, write what would happen if Prince and Sun fought. What techniques would they use and how would they counter? This can be a pure fight scene, or it can include dialogue. How it proceeds is all up to you! Ties are allowed. A writing competition entry is seperate from the tournament and will have no effect on the the tournament’s outcome. You will have to vote in the tournament separately.

PR! Staff will vote on the winner based how which entry is the most realistic/has the most chance for coming true. The winner will receive a chapter preview for the series of their choice.

To enter, email your writing to admin@princerevolution.org! The deadline for Ming Huang vs Blaze Knight is December 31st.

Update: November 2011 – Merchandise, Tournament, and Plurking

posted in: Updates | 39
November 2011 Chapters

  1. ½ Prince V6C2: Shock! The True Identity of Yu Lian-dàsăo
  2. The Legend of Sun Knight V2C10: “Recruit Worshippers”
  3. The Legend of Sun Knight V2Extra: “Respect the Privacy of the Twelve Holy Knights”
  4. The Legend of Sun Knight V2Epilogue: Character Introductions

First and foremost, a quick reminder that we’re still selling LSK doujin and calendars to all countries outside of North America. For those of you in NA, we’ve unfortunately had a delay with the US shipment, so it might be another month or so before we’re (finally) able to open ordering.

In related news, we were looking into some Yu Wo merchandise and managed to find merchants for the two following products: the ½ Prince Art Book and LSK Card Packs! We know that most fans who don’t speak Chinese are unable to gain access to such merchandise, so we’re going to start offering them through our store; we’ll basically act as a middleman. Below are the descriptions:

1/2 Prince Art Book

Information

  • ARTIST: Xiao Qiang (小强)
  • DESCRIPTION: 25+ full color pages.
  • PRICE: $15.00 USD
  • SHIPPING: To be decided (due to the weight and size of the books, it may be as much as $10)
LSK Card Pack

Information

  • ARTIST: Yuán Qì Chuàng Jiè (元气创界)
  • DESCRIPTION: 12 full color plastic cards, 9cm by 5.2cm
  • PRICE: $6.00 USD
  • SHIPPING: To be decided (shouldn’t be more than $3-4).

We are currently opening pre-ordering for both of these. The first five orders will get 10% off. Pre-ordering will only be open for November, at which point we’ll start accepting payments and shipping everything. We will not order another batch as this is just something we are doing in celebration of the winter holidays, so if you want one or both we recommend that you order now. Ordering will be done through our store. Because we don’t have the products yet, we can’t give a solid estimate on what shipping will be; it depends mainly on the size and weight of the packages. We will give an exact number closer to the end of the month—be warned, however, that shipping for the art book could be as much as $10 thanks to its size. Also, we might not be able to fulfill all the orders as we haven’t contact the merchants yet, hence we aren’t sure of the amount of merchandises that we could get in. People who orders earlier will have precedence. Alright…I think I have sufficiently warns all of you =p.

Again, orders will not be shipped until December.

Next up, we’re excited about all the feedback we’ve been getting for the tournament! We got a bunch of votes on the name, and the final winner is The “This is Not a Beauty Pageant” Tournament! Within the next few days a separate post will kick off the start of the tournament, including a full explanation on how things will go down.

And finally, a few things to note: The first volume of LSK will be up as a PDF later this month and we should have the bare-bones version of the next few HP volumes up soon as well. Over at the Staff Blog, Lucathia, one of our translators, has started to translate and post a few of Yu Wo’s plurks; basically a collection of her thoughts on random things while writing. It’s an interesting insight into who she is, so I definitely recommend that you check it out! You can find it either through the Staff Blog link in the menu bar or here.

Happy reading!

Update: October 2011 – New Members and a Tournament

posted in: Updates | 112
October 2011 Chapters

  1. ½ Prince V6C1: The Conference of the Five Overlords
  2. The Legend of Sun Knight V2C8: “Build Good Relationships with Neighbors”
  3. The Legend of Sun Knight V2C9: “Spread the True Teachings of the God of Light”

Just the way a T-Rex chomps down on a steak, we—ok, this analogy isna working out the way I had planned to, and it’s probably giving you the wrong image of PR Staff… So let’s scrap that eh? This is Nabs here, one of the proofreaders that you don’t know exists, even though you’ve probably read the one other update I made (Yes, I know my output isna miraculous), so Hi Hi~~ *waves* So, this time I have news. Now this news can be classified into two categories (and as your Maitre d’ tonight, I suggest that you go for the latter): Good or Great.  Wait for it……………………………………………………………………………….WE HAVE NEW MEMBERS ZOMG!

As the result of opening up our recruitment again (Who are we kidding, translator slots are almost always open ^u^), we have new proofreaders and translators. Our proofreaders in the limelight tonight are Null, Icarus, Arcedemius, Xan, and Satoshi, and to join them are our new translators: Hyotai, Asmodea, Nausicaa, Azakura, and Bleachpanda! *clap* Give them a big hand everyone, even though theyv’e been here such a (comparatively) short time, they’ve already grown on me like cute chibi barnacles ^u^ Please be good to them, they’ll be a large factor in you reading your Yu Wo goodies… Oh, and don’t forget to feed them some brownies once in a while and scratch them behind the ears… They seem to like that as well ^u^

Now onto a different topic: Some really smart, observant (bored maybe?) readers of ours noticed that somehow our releases have been following a pattern of 1 HP chappie, 2 LSK chappies; 2 HP chappies, 1 LSK chappie. Now, I am here to reveal to you a biiiiiiiiiiiigggg secret: it was pure coincidence folks~~ As much as I would like to believe that the PR Staff bosses (Boss and Eili-Chan) are trying to hide some Illuminati symbolism or something along those lines, there’s no such luck (Alas, us young geniuses… actually, I shouldna include myself in there… I’m a proofreader and I never noticed the pattern -____-;;) So erm yeah… where was I? Oh yeah, guys, there’s no pattern, so be on the lookout for whatever wild chappies we release (gotta catch ‘em all~). And now I’ll hand you over to much more capable typing fingers (Oops, almost typed gingers there) for a real treat for you guys. Laters chya~~ (*^u^*)/~

—EvlNabiki

Hello guys! We’ve got a special new treat for our readers: We’re going to be hosting a 1/2 Prince vs Legend of the Sun Knight character tournament! Not sure what such a thing is? Basically, it’ll be our version of Second Life’s Adventurers’ Tournament. Each month we’ll pair two characters together, one from HP and one from LSK, and ask, “In a fight between these two, who would win and why?” You, our lovely readers, will get to vote on who would win and at the end of the month we’ll tally up all the votes and announce the winner. We’ll be doing this in tournament style, so winners will proceed to the next round for further battles.

Next month we’ll release the tournament brackets and begin the first fight. In the mean time, we present the following question: What should be the offical title of the tournament? In two weeks we’ll put everything you guys come up with a poll so you can vote on the name!

Happy reading!
