Recommended Posts

Getting on with it.... :blush:

 

Previously on the Battle of Wits....

 

Ithi and Millon were locked in the initial battle. Ithi decided to go with ROCK. And the was well rewarded.

Millon was taken aback by the mighty rock, but he had a trick up his sleeve. He would fight power with strategy. and he went with 

PAPER.

Yes it was the dreaded fine print and the poor Rock Monster had no defense. he was bamboozled and bashed himself in the head in his confusuion...

 

 

Millon!!!! you move on and now the tourney will continue. Hopefully we will not have any further breaks (yes I'm looking at you Verb :tongue:

 

Ithi you do not go home empty handed. You get this fine Siggy to wear ( I know it is fine because I know who made it :wub:).

Okay, Rhea. I have thrown my choice.

 

I think you'll find it is a cut above the others.

 

It's a solid choice.

 

I will enjoy reading of your demise in the paper.

Is that so...

 

You are a cut up, that is for sure. 

 

As for solid, I am not so sure. 

 

Lets wrap this up!

 

*boom* The counter move has been made!

Greetings all! we have reached the deadline for our first day of the tourney but unfortunately there are two people that have not responded and given their official actions. I have elected to give a one time 5 our grace period since I am home at the present and we have had one draw that will be going to ... SUDDEN DEATH!!!!!

 

I need to hear from Adella and Shad. I know Adella has been about so if anyone can check to makes sure Ed hasn't locked her up someplace that would be helpful. Also I haven't herd from Shad at all so if anyone knows an alternate method to reach him that would be helpful. Thanks in advance. 

 

Now on to the results...

First Battle is DJ versus Verbal. 

 

Dj was nervous. What to do what to do. Verbal was a cunning OLD veteran of the DM wars. To attempt to see what was in his mind in order to ascertain what he would do was a dangerous mission. She attempted to delve into his ewok mind but it was difficult with all the spiderman memes and Jennifer Lawrence images to figure out what what would be best. Then she realised she was overthinking the process and thought about his name. Verbal. Words. She reached into her pocket and pulled out her handy dandy Damascus Steel Scissors.

Verb wasted no time in making his choice he immediately went to work. He had to make up for his breaking the site and making everyone twiddle their thumbs for 6 weeks. He made his choice but then was distracted by a image of Bridget Regan in a spiderman costume... Dangit man concentrate he said to himself. He went into his most zen like trance and saw what he should do. and he chose...... poorly. PAPER.

 

in the end there was much snipping and screaming but Verb did end up with some very nice artwork.

Next up are Rhea versus James B.

 

Rhea wanted to win. She was driven to solve the puzzle that was James B. She treated it as a matter of sheer logic. ROCK, PAPER, SCISSORS. Multiple choice question. 78% of the time the answer is C. BOOM!!! Scissors it is. She threw what she thought should be a perfectly good set forward but was not impressed by the result.

James thought that in this game no one ever chooses Rock, right. I mean how simplistic would that be so Scissors was the safe choice. Either he wins or he draws. maybe it was that excessive amount of logic deployed that altered the magic at hand but his produced scissors weren't what he had hoped for either.

It is a DRAW!!!! We go to .... wait for it .... SUDDEN DEATH!!!

You each have up to 24 hours to make a choice once both of you have chosen that is it. No changing. Good luck.

I just got Adella's official reply. 

 

Adella versus Oscar

 

Adella was late. She had forgotten to send off that most important piece of mail and had just realised it. she scurried to get it in the mail. "what was it Oscar said he was gonna do? Scissors? He wouldn't really do that would he? Not a chance." Okay this is gonna be easy. I'll just pick paper and be safe about it. Done. It is in the mail.

Oscar was adamant that he wanted his prize. "Go big or go home". Scissors.

We have more results in the EPIC Rhea vs. James B. match...

 

James was very eager to get his choice in. The early bird gets the worm and all that. He was certain he was gonna make the right choice this time....

 

Rhea was busy so she took a little longer to decide but she too just knew that victory was in reach...

    • 1) Your Handle: Jagen Sedai 2) Your Character's full name: Jagen Halin / Celestine Erebruz 3) Your Character's Type and Level (New or Returning: Trainee/Warder; Novice/Accepted/Aes Sedai - Traditional or Salidar): Sitter, Red Ajah / Aes Sedai, Yellow Ajah 4) Do you have see/have access to post on the RP IC boards? Yes! 5) Do you see/have access to post on the Tar Valon OOC sub boards? Yes!
    • This is great :)   I do have one question, and maybe you guys plan on changing it, I'm not sure: What is the difference between the Boards "The Great Hall" and "The Hall of the Tower" inside the White Tower board? I can't really figure it out >_>   Also, is it possible, maybe, or desired, to change "Secret Whisper Hole" to be something more obvious for new comers?
    • So, I have   A Red, A novice, and a Tower Guard (unbonded warder.. who was bonded to a green once upon a time). I have another tower Guard I'm debating to pull in too.. but toddler steps.. (since i rarely do things slow... still.)   I also have a few NSW's that i submitted years ago that included a Blue, a Red and i 'think' a brown? 
    • To PREFACE: I did this simply because I had the curiosity and time to do so. I wanted to know how the DM OP scores would compare to WoT canon, so I tried figuring it out.   Also, I felt like doing this in case DM ever decided to go with canon WoT OP scores, which I think would be cool, but seems a bit complicated. Maybe I'm doing it too simplistically.  But, I sort of wanted to be ahead of the game, in case someone wanted the work done.   Ultimately, I really wanted to answer the question, "What would DM AS scores be on RJ's canon scale?"   So, I began by copying the table of the DM Aes Sedai OP scores. I then arranged it by strength, figuring out that there is a range of 13 strength levels (or categories) that Player Characters fall under per the WT rule of "Females [receive a strength score] from 22-34".   Unfortunately I came upon a part where I can't seem to figure out any more, so I'm posting what I hashed out in a Notepad on my computer. Feel free to leave a comment if anyone wishes. I can now see why Jordan had to go into + (positive) scoring... I went into - (negative) high scores, myself.       Feel free to correct anything potentially wrong or misinformed.
    • Dice quickly throws a dagger at Cairos (whens the last time I lost a Joust boofhead??"   Dice finally manages to pull Bunyan away from the baby Trolloc. Suddenly he feels Bunyan stiffen, then he starts to strut....  "what are you..." then Dice sees Chae   or more her mount       he looks at bunyan "Oh NO!!  dont tell me!!" Bunyan struts again   FACEPALM   Dice jumps off and gets in front of his horse   "What ARE YOU THINKING!!!!!???" he screams "thats the competition!! oh cmon!! its wearing PINK RIBBONS for crying out loud!!!   You DO remember Ebou Dar dont you?? COME ON!!! snap OUT of it!"   Dice slaps Bunyan and gets a death glare and a snort    "you awake now? Can we do this??" Bunyan turns grudgingly towards the lists. Dice quickly remounts muttering about bloody pink ribbons and the fact that women really WILL talk about ANYTHING!!!!!!       pulling into the lists Dice yells to Chae "Cmon Archer girl! youve run your mouth now its time to pay the gleeman!! Lets see if your Harry Potter Knowledge is as good as you think it is! You may begin!"       LETS JOUST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
