December 2011 Chapters
Thanks to everyone for a great Round 1 of The “This is Not a Beauty Pageant” Tournament! Sun Knight won about 2:1, so he’ll be moving on to the Preliminaries Stage 2. Remember, the writing contest is still open until the end of December, and you have a chance to win again with this month’s round, which will also end in December!
But more importantly, this month we’ve got a surprise for you: to celebrate the holidays we’re releasing six chapters, three for each series!
Who would win in a fight between Ming Huang and Blaze Knight?
Click to view at full size.
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: ???
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
- 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!
- One clear winner only. No ties.
- One vote per person.
- 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.
- 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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org! The deadline for Ming Huang vs Blaze Knight is December 31st.
