  1. Black Panther debuts in the late 60's/early 70's. Dr. Strange is much earlier than that. So if anything it is Jordan taking the concepts from the comics. It is historically accurate for the African warriors to use spears. The test is a long standing fantasy staple, think Dune. In fact you could argue that the entire Aiel are an homage to the Fremen.
  2. Hello Taren. Well met. Welcome to the warder yard. I'm Turin the Me'A disc leader. I've been around here for a while now. We are usually very good about not cutting ourselves or our training partners while sparring. Some do have a bit of difficulty shaving however.
  3. For James your winner's siggy (created by my lovely Ithi :wub:) For everyone else Again, I hope everyone enjoyed playing in this the longest game evah!! (Thanks Verb)
  4. Congratulations James!! Great victory. Great job everyone that played along. I hope everyone enjoyed themselves. I will be posting the winner siggy later today or Monday.
  5. The final battle continued. Would anyone ever choose something other than paper? If this continues would it create additional deforestation? Will it ever stop snowing here? How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop? Oh the battle. Yes, let's see how it is going. Mills was being stubborn. He wanted to win how he wanted to win. It was gonna be paper that brought him to victory. Right away he selected Paper. Now just to wait far James to fall back to rock... James made his choice. He was uncertain if it would lead to victory or defeat or just more of this endless battling. Mills was waxing poetic as he waited for what he thought would be his victory. James only had a single line Scissors. James is victorious!!!!
  6. Déjà vu all over again... Mills: Paper James: Paper And on to round 4... Exciting innit?
  7. Mills: PAPER James: PAPER Round three. see above for rules
  8. 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.
  9. 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. 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. In the second Semi-Final it was James and DJ battling to see who move on to the Final round. We now move onto the final match, but in the end...
  10. I think that the Warders in the books are very much more than just support for their AS. I know that the Warders here are more than just support for their AS. There is the portion that is shielding them from the harms that they might not otherwise be able to avoid due to the restraints of the tree oaths. The Warders contribute more than just the obvious if you look a little deeper. Even the "snooty" AS that think of their warders as a jumped-up bodyguard/valet have a bit more respect for them than they show to the outside world. Possibly even more than they try to show the warder themselves due to trying to maintain AS mystery or sommat. I think that the inspiration for why men (and women) decided to become warders is as individual as the people themselves. It might be something as simple as wanting to be like someone in a legend or just to be one of the baddest folks around. It might be that they share deeply in one of the main causes that their AS espouses. It could be for any number of reasons. It would be "nice" to know more about more of them but you really can't get every tidbit of backstory and hope to have the main stories move along at any sort of pace. I think that they tend to hang around the other warders as they don't have as much in common with any other group. They are not actually soldiers although they train in combat a fair amount. They are more akin to the Rangers in LotR in that they maintain their physical strength longer in life and are generally stronger and more capable to start with and then are given additional benefits of endurance and other perks. On top of that they share the type of existence. They don't have sports teams to share with more "regular" folks.
  11. Welcome back to the Ultimate Battle of Wits (where it appears Shenanigans has been called...OVERRULED!!) It will soon be time for The Semi-Final Round matches. We have in the first Semi-Final Millon vs. Oscar and in the Second Semi-Final: DJ vs. James you will each have 24 hours again to make your choices and you may change your mind up to the deadline which will be 1200 GMT on Jan 16th, 2018. Good Luck!!! *See how good I was at putting the correct year in,
  12. 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... That concludes the first round of matches. We will set the semi finals and commence them on Monday.
  13. 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.
