Galaxias Kyklos

"Destiny is no matter of chance. It is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved."

-William Jennings Bryan

The silence of the barren universe was dismal, and haunting. The distant stars cast off into other galaxies dimmed while cold and sub zero temperature and conditions prevented any form of life from thriving within the vacuum of space. It was time for the fabrication of reality and existence to once again ripple with the waves of destiny and for the cosmos to claim their champion. To crown not the most adept in the arcane arts, but the one with the most capacity and potential for it’s control.

Matter not the alignment, army nor master that the magic serves, only its conjurer’s will and desires. The planets had perfectly rotated in straight coordination, their spheres casting before and after one another in impeccable harmony. Within the fiery core of the red hyper giant known to earth’s researchers as VY Canis Majoris, an item of unknown abilities and untold power was being forged by the hands of divine decree.

Mages, Sorcerers and those with the aptitude to wield its unimaginable endowment, and bare the weight of the title “Sorcerer Supreme”, would fade into nothingness, and reappear amongst each other not as peers or fellow scholars in the arts, but as foes and enemies. The strings of fate intertwine once more with only one left standing.

Let it begin, so it may end.
Let it begin, so it may end.

OOC

Welcome! This is the official OP and OOC for the Sorceress Supreme Tournament! As the OP states, all characters that are being utilized for competition will be teleported IC (against their knowledge) to face against their assigned opponent. It was randomized and requests for exchange WILL NOT be permitted unless extended and valid circumstances can be confirmed. They will be dealt with as presented by the judges.

ROUND 1:

ROUND 2:

The Judges being:

If there are any issues, comments, questions or concerns, they should all be directed to the assigned judges since they have abstained from entering the tournament. The rules are as follows;

  • The battles will be graded in a knockout/bracket format by the judges via popular vote, the winner moving forwards and the loser....losing.
  • Posts will be graded in a point based system upon writing skill, use of powers, and storytelling.
  • Votes are counted by the panel of judges and no one else. Any attempt to convince or coerce decisions will result in immediate disqualification.
  • No god-modding, (to include overly powered magic nullifiers), no changing bios or abilities once this begins.
  • The First posts will drop on Tuesday this week, once the judges assign arenas. There will be absolutely nothing before that due to achieving an edge.
  • There is a 5 post limitfor each character, if you fail to reach that limit, you lose. You are not allowed to surpass said limit.
  • If someone does not post within 72 hours of their opponent, they are considered inactive and lose.
  • EDIT --> IC, the characters will be imbued with the knowledge of the tournament, aware of what is at stake and it's rewards. Unknown as to who or what orchestrated it, but comprehending why they were selected.
  • The winner is granted title of Sorcerer Supreme and an 'artifact' (they can choose/create one) that can enhance their abilities or something of the sort.
  • Please keep it fun and sportsman like.

ALL OOC FOR THE ENTIRE TOURNAMENT WILL BE HERE. ALL BATTLES WILL BE TITLED, "SOF; (insert name here) VS (insert name here)!" FOR THE SAKE OF ORGANIZATION!

Oh nice. I'll be witnessing the altercations first hand; as I am not completely sure what I'm doing - looks like great fun though.

@puppet: So sorry! My notifications have been blowing up and I haven't been able to get to them all. If someone else wants to join in, we'll have you against them. If not, we'll get you a bye and you can face the victor of my bracket if that's all right with @kurt_saulenne ?

Okay. This is the situation. You and Risky dont have to do anything besides judge. I volunteered to set the stages to give Vex a hand. That's it.

@_reynard_: Ah, okay. Just to let you know: I'd be willing to help you. If you need my assistance just let me know. Not too eager on it but it sucks to let you guys do ALL the work.

One bracket was added due to a miscommunication error.

@kurt_saulenne: yes, every battle will have their own separate thread made by one of the fighters.

So either you or Lady Grimm will make your guys thread and create the Opening Post that basically sets up the autmosphear for the battle.

So you need to talk to Lady G about which one of you are gonna make the thread

Yes. That's what was intended. Nothing changed other than the addition of a new bracket. It doesn't affect anyone else's first round.

It changed when I added Puppet and Edge.

@jean_knightfall: An entirely new bracket? Why not just the addition of one? Changing the bracket creates confusion and already disrupts the established matches.

@lady_grimm: Not my choice. It's either add new people and it gets changed by the generator or keep the old one and kick the other folks. I linked to the new one above, y'know.
