Round 2; Match 4: Auron3991 vs Imveros

Round 2; Match 4: Auron3991 vs Imveros

The iron grit sand below their feet: washed away. The table with their old ingredients: washed away. The remnants of their competitors: washed away. The sky above them: washed away. Eventually the rain stops. But by this point, the only thing that remains is blackness. Not darkness, just blackness, as far as the eye can see in any direction. Except, always there at the edge of the blackness, but never drawing closer no matter how many steps are taken, are those same obsidian stands again.

"Here we are then. Last but not least. At least you have the chance not to be the worst. If you are, it will be on you, and you alone."

Here you will battle in the black nothingness, under the watchful eyes of of the great and honorable judges:
  • Sassafrass
  • Bhelogan
  • PIG

Gesturing to two heaping tables with his staff, the Chairman proclaims: As has happened many times before, and must happen again, you will now face off against each other! Only by using the following five ingredients,
  • A Turtle Swarm
  • The Banana King
  • A School House
  • A Golden Trident
  • Cure
and crafting an adventure with your own talents, can you hope to survive! One of you will be fortunate enough to be eliminated, a reprieve you each will treasure by the time your time here is done. The other will be forced to advance to the semi-finals!


Let the Dungeon Mastering....BEGIN!!
Rules
  • You are to write an adventure using the five items / concepts above. 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 2000 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 blinked as his form turned solid, just in time to watch two of the competitors transformed into statues. Reminded of the power that could so casually be tossed around in the arena, his knuckles took on a barely noticeable white tinge as his grip tightened on his spear. When the world began washing away, the spear began sparking with an electric current in a vain attempt to light the darkness.

Deliberately not looking at the other competitor, he surveyed the ingredients before him. The current slowly expanded until it was an entire field encompassing both him and his ingredients. It was time to begin crafting.

Imveros ignored the other contenders and their grim fates. None of this is real. None of this is real. My mind is just trying to process the foundation's structure.

He breathed a sigh of relief as the scenery washed away, and he felt two burning gazes leave the back of his head. One remained, burning straight into his soul, reminding him that this was real. The rain stopped, and another arena appeared before him. The table was the same, but the ingredients were different. He scanned the room and wished he hadn't, as two new gazes joined their firey companion. He turned to the other challenger, unable to make out any features, and there too felt a malicious presence. It had unfinished business, and wouldn't hesitate to plow straight through the matrix jockey to get what he wanted.

"So, still playing your little games, huh? If this is what it takes to earn user access, then game on! I've been shaving IC since I was knee-high with a devil rat." He walked calmly to the counter and scanned each of the ingredients. "Null sheen, chummer."

In the blackness, rain begins to pour. But not just any rain, rain of various colors, and, upon closer inspection, rain of various shapes. Just as before the rain had washed away the first arena, now, drop by drop it is reconstructing it around the contestants, iron grit sand and all. Finally, the last raindrops stack up over time into the shape of the 'Honorable' Chairman.

"Creative, creative, both of you. But one of you got a bit carried away, perhaps. A bit too disjointed in the eyes of the judges. And that is too much to overcome against your opponent, I'm afraid". The chairman gestures with his staff, and Imveros find themselves a metallic statue, but liquid. Slowly running and losing its shape, but at a slow pace. A very viscous fluid statue. Will it be hours before it has turned into a shapeless puddle? Perhaps days? Or years? It is hard to tell.
