Round 1; Match 1: Solid Snek vs Leviticus vs HotsuSama vs Duxus (vs DraconigemaArma)

Round 1; Match 1: Solid Snek vs Leviticus vs HotsuSama vs Duxus (vs DraconigemaArma)

As has happened many times before, and must happen again, you will now face off against each other. Only by using the following four ingredients, and crafting an encounter with your own talents, can you hope to survive! Two of you will be fortunate enough to be eliminated, but for the others, a far more gruelling test shall be before you, for Round 2 yet awaits!

right-aligned image
The judges for this round are:
  • Bhelogan
  • PIG
  • G in Japan
The ingredients for this round are:
  • a Sympathetic Cat-Person!
  • a City Hidden on a Hill!
  • a Field of Flowers!
  • Rabid Donkeys!

Let the Game Mastering....BEGIN!!
Rules
  • You are to write an encounter using the four items / concepts above. All rules found here are to be followed.
  • The guidelines for the Judges' scoring can be found here. An "encounter" is specifically referencing a single battle, confrontation, or other situation for a group of PCs to come up against, and (hopefully) overcome. It should be something that can be a special, unique, focal point of a campaign.
  • The entry is to be no longer than 1,500 words, which includes *everything* you put into the post. Judges are instructed to stop reading at that time, or to deduct points if you go over. The use of a spell check and word counter is highly recommended.
  • Please make a simple post in this thread when you first read it, to let the judges know have seen it, and that you are on board. It doesn't have to be anything more than "read!", or something like that, though roleplaying it is also perfectly acceptable! Do not edit this post after making it; when it comes time to post your entry, do that in a second, separate post.
  • You have 7 days from the time this post is made to complete and submit your entry (in a new post; don't edit your first post!). It is not expected that you use all this time - the extra time has been given to ensure that, no matter what your timezone, your schedule, your sleep habits, your work or student life, or emergencies that could crop up, you should have ample time to complete your entry. Posting when you are done, and not waiting until the end, is also recommended, and rewarded.
  • You should post your entry into this thread within the generous timeframe, and ensure it is secreted (to the above judges) and spoilerbuttoned. Feel free to also PM your judges to let them know you have posted, if you wish. (DO NOT PM them your entry - just let them know your entry is submitted). If your post is not made within the 7 days, you will be automatically disqualified. If you have issues, be sure to PM Inem *before* your round is closed.
  • Once posted, do not edit your entry. The use of the "preview" function is thus also highly recommended.

A figure wreathed in a thick cloak sashays forward. The cloak is feathered, resplendent in rainbow hues, but the figure within is thin, almost emaciated, with the thin delicate fingers of a pianist.

Their fingers twitch and ripples of faint light echo from the tips. Flickers of words and images take shape around them. "Thank you for the opportunity," they rasp from underneath the heavy hood. It sounds hesitant, almost apologetic. "I only hope my best is good enough."

A quiet mechanical clicking sound proceeds the soft glow of a yellow flame before a dour man’s face. Its light is extinguished almost immediately with a sharp metallic snap. The burning end of a hand rolled cigarette fights against the surrounding darkness. A long, much appreciated drag is followed by a relaxed exhale. A low, hoarse voice speaks up, “It’s good to be with you, at the beginning of all things.

A single, mundane cardboard box rests in the corner. It lifts upwards, and a serpentine head with an eyepatch slithers forward, peering about the dark arena. Behind the snake is an old, metal typewriter, like one might find in a period-piece in the sixties. Having scouted the area, the snake retreats back inside, letting the box hit the floor. Then the cardboard camouflage creeps forward a couple feet, before becoming motionless again.


SCREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEECH !!!!


A horrendous sound akin to a banshee's cry echoes around the arena as the snake "secretly" inches the heavy typewriter forward over the stone floor. Another pause, and the box creeps forward again until its back wall strikes the writing implement, and the screech sounds out again. This happens three times, allowing the snake to crawl forward a grand total of two meters from its original position. A voice barely muddled by the brown paper barrier mutters:

"Otacon, I'm in."

As the time expires, the 'Honorable' Chairman is already standing in the first corner of the arena, though no one saw him approach. "Now then, now then. The first batch of contestants. Let's see what the judges have made of you". The Chairman looks around at everyone in turn.

"Ah, valiant efforts across the board. And while it was close for one of you, two entries did stick out to every single judge. Which means for the other two, it is time to say goodbye." There is a thud that for some reason also sounds reminiscent of a snap, as the 'Honorable' Chairman stomps his staff on the floor of the arena. And just like that, Solid Snek and Leviticus melt into the ground.

"Now then...that means that the other two of you shall be stuck here a while longer. Prepare yourselves, for your next battle is about to begin..."
