You hear a voice from behind, and are a tad startled. "Oh, don't worry, I'm disappointed, too." It's the teacher, who somehow sneaked up on you. Perhaps her footsteps were softened. "I had a whole thing set up! You were going to be in an underwater dome that was cracking apart, and the other pair would have been in a space station low on oxygen. It was gonna be this beautiful duality of pressures... But he said 'Well, are YOU going to conjure up a whole ocean just for this?' And here we are." She shakes her head. "On the bright side, there's a ton of old junk in this ash heap. I'm sure you can find something to string an adventure together." She shuffles around for a few seconds, and stubs her toe on something, and lifts up a Bushel filled with Papyrus from the ashes. "See?"

High overhead, you can hear the sounds of vultures, hidden in the swirling clouds. One of them dips down low enough for you to see that they are actually winged humanoids, keeping a watchful and judgmental eye on you.
  • savoylen
  • Unko Talok
  • Admin RonarsCorruption
  • PIG
You begin looking about, and manage to find... an odd assortment of things. Surely, some of them were fused together from other ingredients.
  • A Flavor that Causes Alarm
  • A Bushel of Papyrus
  • An Unfunny Clown
  • A Mistaken But Stubborn Automotan
  • Hunger Strike

The Bonus ingredients for this round are:
  • Fool's Gold
  • A Colorful Kobold Sorcerer

Only by crafting an adventure with your own talents, can you hope to survive and get your chance to battle for the crown!

Let the Game Mastering....BEGIN!!
Rules
  • You are to write an adventure using the five items / concepts above. You can also use any of the bonus ingredients you wish to. All rules found here are to be followed.
  • The guidelines for the Judges' scoring can be found here.
  • The entry is to be no longer than 2500 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.

Auron3991 surveyed the destruction as he stood with the aid of his spear. The ash was new but reminded him of previous arenas. The electrical energy dancing on his skin began to intensify, bolts seeming to peel off until they found ingredients within the mall's remains and pulled them to his reach. A grin he hadn't felt in a long time formed across his face as he examined the items. Looking to his opponent, the ideas forming in his mind resulted in a single statement:

"Let's give them a performance to remember."

Homestarbaby sees his opponent grin an infectious grin, and he feels it spread across his face. This challenge is going to be intense, but it will also be an extremely fun one.

"Let's give them a performance to remember," Auron3991 states with enthusiasm, and Homestarbaby cannot help but nod.

I've gotta say at the outset-- both of these entries were really fantastic and enjoyable! They both brought different strengths to the table, and were wildly different. I just wanted to applaud the creativity of each of you.

The strange harpies high up above continue squawking, but there is a change to the tone, the tenor. It seems that a decision has been reached. The teacher appears, still morose from her plans being denied. She looks about, surveying the ashfield, and seems surprised to see your creations. "Oh. Oh, my, I was honestly not expecting you to actually make something with this garbage, let alone two things so... remarkable." she seems to catch herself, and remember that she's supposed to be aloof and unimpressed. "Aherm. I mean. Let's see what the judges had to say..."

"Wow. These... these are really close," she says, squinting at the two of them. "I'm going to have to rely on the judges purely and truly here, though even they are not in perfect agreement. Auron3991, you will be advancing to the final match. Homestarbaby... go with honor. Your defeat was narrow. A hair's breadth..."
