Round 4; the Grand Finale: moozuba vs Rolzup

Round 4; the Grand Finale: moozuba vs Rolzup

But what an opponent it is that waits before him this day! Striped with the blood of his vanquished foes - the latest of which was last year’s Iron DM himself, Ion2Atom, Rolzup stands tall. No matter what happens now, he has stepped up his game from last year, and now looks on that prized sceptre...or wreath...with bold intentions.

Of course, there can be only one Iron DM each year, and now is the time for that decisive battle to decide which of these fine athletes will be allowed to bear the object of power!

For as has happened many times before, you will now face off against each other. Only by using the following ingredients, and crafting an encounter or adventure to truly rival all others may you claim the heavy burden of the title of Iron DM 2015!!

right-aligned image
The main judges for this round are:
  • Everyone!!!
The ingredients for this round are:
  • a Narcoleptic Dragon!!
  • a Kobold Pirate!!
  • a Hall of Mirrors!!
  • an Enchanted Paintbrush!!
  • Forbidden Things!!
  • and Mind Games!!
You can also use any (or none) of the following bonus ingredients:
  • a Bloody Baker!!
  • a Walled Garden!!
  • an Iron Coin!!
  • and: tie your encounter/adventure into the advertisement you wrote in Round Zero, as a conclusion to the storyline!
Let the Dungeon Mastering....BEGIN!!

Rules
  • You are to write an encounter, or a general short-adventure arc, using the four items / concepts above. All rules found here are to be followed.
  • The entry is to be no longer than 3,000 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 count is highly recommended.
  • You have 7 days from the time this post is made. 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 adventure. Posting when you are done, and not waiting until the end, is also recommended.
  • You should post 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.
  • 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. If your post is not made within the 7 days, you will be automatically disqualified. If you have issues, be sure to PM or hvg3akaek at gmail dot comemail hvg3akaek *before* your round is closed.
  • Once posted, do not edit your entry. The use of the "preview" function is thus also highly recommended.

A Narcoleptic Dragon? Rolzups mouths silently. He shrugs. At least it's not a Mariachi Band, he tells himself, shuddering a little.

"I am ready," he declares, stepping forward, "As well as willing! Able? I suppose we shall see about that one." Turning, Rolzup bows to Moozuba. "I am without the aid of my monkey butler," he says mournfully, "The advantage, I fear, is yours."

The cheerful challenger stepped into the arena, head held high, clad in nothing but bermuda shorts, swim goggles, and duck-themed arm floaties. Raising a neon pink pool noodle overhead, he ran headlong toward the center of the arena and cried, "Cannonball!" before diving into the air and landing with a rough, pelvis-cracking thud. Groaning, he looked up at Rolzup from his prone position. "This... isn't Wally Walrus's Wide World of Water, is it?"

Numerous fine DMs have fallen so far, not because they were poor, or had no skill. For each of them was something unique, each offered tasty morsels for us to devour. But only by refining them, by forcing them against each other can we decide who is the best, who stands out above the others, and earns that coveted title of Iron DM.

And this year, after numerous battles and countless bruises and scrapes, with a victory of 5-2, Moozuba has claimed ownership of the Iron DM title!! Congratulations!

Well done to Rolzup, too, and to each and every other challenger who participated this year! Thank you also to all the judges that gave of their own time to allow this competition to work! And you (yes, you!) - thank you for reading, for cheering on your favourites, for giving the contestants your support and affection! Everyone, continue to write and run fine adventures - or play and encourage your DMs on! And don't forget to come back next year, ready to take on Moozuba, for your own chance of becoming the Iron DM!!
