Millon was swaggering after his victory over Ithi. He was on cloud nine since Shad had not been around to start their match. But while everyone was watching Rhea and James go round and round no one noticed as a huge man stepped into the ring. Mills first notice of the man was the loud sound of a rock hitting the wall just next to him, pulverised immediately. "What the ???" Mills exclaimed seeing the man holding a rock.

"I didn't have to miss." Shad said quietly. 

Mills recovered himself quickly. "How sporting of you. Let's do this. "



Shad: Rock

Mills: Paper

 

Mills is victorious!!!

Should we start a pool on the final match of the round? Make your guesses. Winner, round number, winning move. 

 

Closest wins a free meme.

Rhea and James were locked in battle. Who would abandon their rock first? Turns out both of them would and it spelled doom for one of them... The angel came for...



Rhea: Paper

James: Scissors

 

James is victorious. 

 

The angels came for Rhea.

Oh ho ho, your going down Mills!  I'm in your head...wow, there's a lot or room here.  You know, I could use a place to have my man cave.  Could I put up a few things here?  Maybe a couch?  It's really comfortable!

Hello again. Sorry for the delay in updating the game. There were some timing issues and then this happened...

Not really our village but you get the idea. Thanks Snow bomb. :dry:

 

Now on to the results...

 

In the first Semi-Final match we have Mills against Oscar.  Oscar fresh off his called shot in the first round. Mills having survived two battles already making him a hardened veteran of the Battle of Wits arena. they both brought it but only one can be the victor.



Oscar went for the biggest baddest Rock he could think of hoping that it would be enough.

Oscar: Rock

Mills was in the zone. He had eliminated his two previous opponents and was really flowing. He knew it was cheeky but since he had to do something with all the paper a lovely small boys Birthday presents were wrapped in he just chucked them at Oscar's bin.

Mills is victorious!

 

 

In the second Semi-Final it was James and DJ battling to see who move on to the Final round.

 



 

James: Rock

He was not messing about here. going all out he uses the greatest power on earth. Rock messaging!

DJ: Scissors

She needed to give it a little extra but while thinking of the greatest sharpest cutty-est scissors imaginable something went wrong.

James is victorious!

it is high noon (in the Eastern US anyway) . Our last two wizened warriors approach their doom. ..

 

Mills had to defeat three to reach this point. He was wondering if this form could hold for one more round. he dug deep and made his choice.

James had the epic first round battle with Rhea. He managed to survive and then defeat DJ to here here.  He had done fewer overall battles but more battling. He was looking a little tired. he gave it his best shot

PAPER = PAPER

 

We go again. you will have 24 hours to submit your official action into your game PM. First action is final. If both actions are received early we will continue until someone wins.

 

Good luck.

Think about death being inevitable, and unpredictable, exempt from the law of averages. Everyone has a turn, and no one knows when.

    •   Can you list some of those points here?     Chemotherapy.   Its success rates are abysmally low compared to treatment options in other diseases, and horrendously expensive without medical insurance.   Still, when the alternative is death, most people choose to undergo chemotherapy.   Same thing for proposed solutions to climate change. The reason you don't believe in them is because you don't believe climate change will harm you. You're like a teenager who doesn't believe drugs and alcohol will kill him, who believes he will live forever, and thus keeps on partying.
    • Today is the release day for Mystic Dragon, the second novel in Jason Denzel’s Mystic series.  This captivating story is a great addition to the series, expanding the scope of the plotlines, the characters, and the world.   Slight spoilers will follow.   Synopsis: The first book, Mystic, showed Pomella AnDone, a commoner, summoned by the High Mystic of Moth to trial for an apprenticeship.  Though Pomella shows strength and courage and cunning, she’s not selected to be the High Mystic’s apprentice.  Instead, she is chosen by Grandmaster Faywong, a man retired from the position of High Mystic of Moth, and becomes his apprentice.   Mystic Dragon picks up the story seven years after the events of Mystic.  Now, Pomella is a full Mystic, using her training, and her reputation as a commoner, to stop a slaver named Shadefox.  Shadefox has been taking the Unclaimed people of Moth and selling them on the Continent.  Her mission is cut short, however, by the celestial event known as Crow Tallin--which takes place once every sixty years.  Pomella is needed on Moth to help control the fay as Treorel, the Mystic Star, momentarily links the human world and Fayun.   However, Shevia, another Mystic, shows signs of going against the traditions of Crow Tallin.  Shevia has been given visions of the future and her intentions for the event counter greatly to what Pomella is instructed to do.  The two women must make some sort of agreement, or it will be a full-out war between them.  And Shevia’s powers are much greater than anything Pomella has ever seen.   Pros: From start to finish, this story was enthralling.  While the first novel focused on Moth culture, the world is expanded greatly in Mystic Dragon.  We see many of the other cultures of the world which solidifies it in the reader’s mind.  The countries on the Continent are very different from Moth, and they offer a contrast to Pomella’s upbringing.   Though the story takes place seven years later, those years aren’t lost.  Through flashback scenes, we get to see exactly what happened to Sim and Shevia during that time.  These scenes were among my favorite in the book because of how poignant the emotional reactions were.  Much darker than Mystic, this novel dwells on loss and pain, sadness and suffering, loneliness and abuse.  These times where the characters are at their lowest makes them shine so much brighter when we see them try their hardest to overcome what’s kept them suppressed.     As the time of Crow Tallin approached, I was constantly guessing the direction the book would take. It was completely unpredictable. There were so many ways the events could have played out, so many choices the characters could have made.  One surprise after another kept me in suspense until the very last page.   And Pomella.  I love her as a character.  Though she’s been a Mystic for nearly seven years, she’s never forgotten her commoner heritage.  Though powerful, she never lets that get in the way of her helping people.  She could live a life of luxury, but she insists on being among the commoners.  Her character has stayed true despite being so highly elevated.  She struggles through this book, she grows, and her future is still uncertain.   Cons:
      The deaths.  I won’t give away who (or how many) die, but some of them devastated me.  Not to say these deaths were for shock value.  They had a purpose.  I hope the third novel will ease the pain at these losses, though.   Conclusion: This story was engrossing.  It was difficult to put down because I wanted to see how the events unfolded.  The pace kept the actions going, pulling me along with it, even late into the night.  The themes of loss and survival resonated strongly with me.  I am eagerly awaiting the conclusion to the series, as so many questions were left unanswered at the end of Mystic Dragon.   Rating: 5 out of 5   You can purchase Mystic Dragon from Dragonmount’s DRM-free eBook store.  To find out more about Jason Denzel and the series you can visit his website, or follow him on Facebook or Twitter.
