MoonBeryl Holder

Sal Delahada

The Yellow Opal

MoonBeryl

At the end of Diamond Quest XI, a new rank came into being in the Outback. The six that placed highest among the seventeen competitors took home gems that night, only one of them was the coveted diamond.

There has been speculation far and wide about what the opals actually are, or what purpose or power they serve. All we know for sure is that it is a highly competitive title among those in the Duel of Fists, obtained only by those willing to pit their skills against the best of the best. Each of the rocks conveys certain small powers to the fighters who hold them, what follows are the details of MoonBeryl and the combatants to have carried it.

Minor Power

Levitation - The user can levitate small objects. Couches and tables are not small objects but glasses, coins, etc., are. The user will be able to use this power to bring items to them instead of having to go over and get what they want.

Major Power

Feathertouch - The user of Moonberyl's power has the ability to "feathertouch." In essence, things that normally weigh a lot (like the resident orc) will seem rather light. Flipping people becomes much easier as does the ability to pick them up without great exertion. However, if the user loses concentration, they may cause themselves to fall or end up off balance, as things will seem their normal weight once again.

Extended Powers

The opals were shattered during the 100th Diamond Quest and brought back together during the 101st. With the reforging, the opals are more powerful than ever, though no longer keen to lend their gifts to just anyone unless doing so fits with their schemes. Quite often, they demand an exchange for what they share and leave their mark upon the user in return.

Perhaps the most cunning of the Opals, MoonBeryl tempts holders into using its powers with honeyed words. The yellow Opal offers its holders more than just the ability to manipulate wind and air. Holders can transcend the present and navigate the wonders of time itself...but is what they’re seeing what truly has happened/will happen, or is the yellow Opal deceiving them? Delve into the timestream too often and even the most mentally disciplined holder might find themselves adrift, unable to return to the here and now.

(vacant)     2024-04-07 - 2024-05-12   ( 35 days )

Matt Simon     2023-12-29 - 2024-04-07   ( 100 days )

Jaycy Ashleana     2022-12-29 - 2023-12-29   ( 365 days )

♦ 12-29-2022 Jaycy wrote up her challenge to the current holder of MoonBeryl, Droet, citing no particular reason for her "sudden" challenge. The two agreed to meet up and the challenge soon went underway. The first match had the two fighters taking to the Wheel. Suspended above in the Outback the defender was the first to strike with a kick. It took a trade for the challenger to get on the board before the rhythm of the fight would find its pattern. Droet found leads and Jaycy would tie them up before Jaycy got her first lead of the night finding match point. Droet swiftly tied it up for Sudden Death before Jaycy pushed through Droet's defense to secure the first match 5-4 in 9. The second bout would take place in The Boiler where Jaycy continued the pace. Starting with a lead she didn't turn back even though she surrendered two hits to the defender. With two bouts of 5-4 in 9 and 5-2 in 6 Jaycy successfully won MoonBeryl and achieved Duel of Fists all Title Holder.
♦ 05-09-2023 Expressing a curiosity in the Opals, Angel challenged Jaycy for MoonBeryl. The two agreed to meet on the evening of the 9th and sought to getting violent with one another. Jaycy was hot out the gates and scored a 3-0 lead in the first three rounds. The fourth saw Angel claiming his first and establishing a point on the board though he would prove to be unable to stop the steamroll that Jaycy was bringing. A brief respite in the action followed as both fighters caught their breath and Jaycy pivoted to a more defensive role securing her final two points in the first match. The second match would reinforce the force that is Jaycy in mirrored scoreline in one less round. In an eerie fashion, Jaycy scored 3 consecutive points in the first three rounds before Angel once again abruptly put a stop to the violence getting a foothold in the fourth. That too would be the last point he scored in the bout, and unfortunately for him the match, as Jaycy took the last two points unopposed. In two fast and furious fights scored 5-1 in 7 and 5-1 in 6, Jaycy defended MoonBeryl.

Droet the Bold     2022-11-19 - 2022-12-29   ( 40 days )

♦ 11-19-2022 Nine fighters entered the Outback's Fall All-Ranks Tournament, but only one could leave with MoonBeryl! In a competitive field, Droet remained undefeated until he met ranger Gren for a second time in the finals. After a close loss, Droet punched his way to victory in the rematch and claimed the Yellow Opal as his choice of prize.

(vacant)     2022-10-16 - 2022-11-19   ( 34 days )

Gatito Lindo     2022-09-26 - 2022-10-16   ( 20 days )

♦ 09-26-2022 Once Gatito knew that Eregor had achieved what he wanted from the Yellow Opal, he challenged again to win it back! While Eregor, Gatito, and caller Karma were the stars of the show, the delicious catering that featured bruschetta and tiramisu eclairs was a close runner-up. In two neck-and-neck duels, Gatito bested Eregor and resumed his reign as MoonBeryl's holder!
♦ 10-16-2022 Due to his victory in Diamond Quest 111, Gatito left MoonBeryl behind to become DiArchLord!

Eregor     2022-04-09 - 2022-09-26   ( 170 days )

♦ 04-09-2022 Undeterred by the result of his previous challenge, Eregor elected to come after Gatito again. As happened with their prior challenge match, this one lasted three duels, two of which ended after SUDDEN DEATH situations. Eregor claimed victory in the first duel, winning 6-5 in 13 rounds (and the score was tied 4 of those final 6 rounds). Gatito found easier sailing in the second duel, and after falling behind to Eregor in the sixth, scored 4 unanswered points to win 5-2 in 10 rounds. The third and final match went 8 rounds, with Gatito grabbing a 4-2 lead after 5. Eregor tied things up in the seventh and scored his third unanswered point in the eighth to narrowly beat Gatito and finally take hold of the yellow opal!
♦ 08-08-2022 Ten months since he'd last held this Opal, Matt (politely) sought to wrest it from Eregor. The pair met in the Outback in a challenge officiated by Dris, and started things off in the weeds - or the Fern, anyway! A well-timed fakeout in the first match gave Matt the win and a reprieve from the foliage, but Eregor took the next two bouts in close matches and continued his reign.

Gatito     2021-10-14 - 2022-04-09   ( 177 days )

♦ 10-14-2021 Dreams of Summer drew Gatito to Duel of Fists goliath Matt Simon in a quest for his Opal, MoonBeryl. The two fighters met in the Outback and took to one of the lesser favored rings in the Boiler to start the night's action. The challenger opened it up with some aggression to claim the first point of the night soon followed by Matt claiming one back. This trend would continue with the lead alternating between Gatito and stalemated until Matt took his first lead in the seventh round. At match point it seemed likely that experience would trump the first match but Gatito refused to say die. Equalizing and forcing double sudden death he eventually claimed the first of two bouts with a decisive kick. The second bout put the two vastly opposing styles of the fighters at odds; unbridled aggression from a young hungry challenger and technique from a vested veteran. In a grueling nine round affair there was merely one round without a change in the score in either direction. There were seven different changes in who led the duel between the two but ultimately it was Gatito who would come out on top in a relentless scrappy fight two. In two close duels, 6-5 in 10 and 5-4 in 9 Gatito would claim MoonBeryl and be crowned Opal.
♦ 01-23-2022 Gatito would see his first challenger in the form of one Eregor. Stating that he wished to see if he could claim a title in each sport, Eregor would proceed to press challenge for the yellow Opal, MoonBeryl. Armed with kindness, Gatito accepted Eregor's challenge and wished him luck as the two would set to face off. So they did, on the night of the 23rd the two would turn out the second challenge of the new year with a match just as exhilarating as the one that had come before them. The first several rounds saw Gatito establishing himself a steady lead of two points. Both fighters seemed to be feeling out the other's approach and not before long Eregor would prove himself a worthy challenge by upending the state of the duel and claiming his first lead over halfway through the bout. A trade of punches culminated in match point before Gatito would press the matter in sudden death and would punch it home with a statement jab. The middle match would prove to be much less to script. The first round would open with an exchange of punches before Eregor claimed himself a nigh-immaculate match point at 4-1. Gatito managed to safe a little more face by scoring another point back but it would prove fruitless as Eregor closed it out two rounds later having only surrendered two points in the bout. The third and final match would prove to define the entire challenge in a nutshell. From the first round to the last, it would be nothing short of an utter domination. One round off a perfect score, Gatito recoiled and retorted his previous loss with a bone-crushing 5-0 display. In three bouts scored 5-4 in 12, 2-5 in 9 and 5-0 in 6, Gatito earned a stripe for his first title defense, securing his ownership of MoonBeryl.

Matthew Algiers Simon     2021-03-01 - 2021-10-14   ( 227 days )

♦ 03-01-21 Immortal Matt Simon threw down the gauntlet to Salvador stating nothing other than it was time he tried to reclaim the opal MoonBeryl. Salvador, sometimes a man of few words, retorted with what took you so long, and then the rest became history. On the eve of the IceDancer challenge between Koyliak and Karma, these two made it an event with challenge for MoonBeryl being the nailbiter counterpart to IceDancer's affair. Both duels were fiercely contested between the challenger and incumbent and eerily enough both of them ended with identical scores and rounds respectively. With a matching win tally on the night of 5-4 in 8 and 5-4 in 8, Matt secured MoonBeryl for the 5th time in his career.
♦ 08-23-21 As the recipient of the Spring Cycle Badass Grant, Ebon Ilnaren came forward to challenge Matt for MoonBeryl. Interestingly, he referred to Matt as Young, which raises many implications about Ebon's own age. The two agreed to meet and hash things out as to who would carry on the tradition of MoonBeryl. Beginning with a forward approach, Ebon swung out and connected to start the challenge in his favor. The two then tangled low in a two-way score, giving Ebon a steady lead. The following rounds showed us how Ebon got his opportunity to begin with, showing off his impressive dexterity in a wild spinkick. Unfortunately it did not connect, but he managed to escape unscathed for that round. His aggression did not let up as he punched once more only this time Matt was aptly prepared with a waiting block. Continuing the cycle the two collided once more in a trade of chops bringing the score evenly at 3-3. Ebon followed up with an evasive maneuver but fell prey to Matt's feint. Securing match point it seemed as though Matt would secure the first victory on the night. Matt moved for what looked like a spinning backfist but Ebon reversed the tide with a feint of his own forcing sudden death. After a grueling nine round affair Ebon braced once more to take the first match. The night would not prove to be a short one as the second match started and Matt grasped a two round lead immediately firing off a jab and landing a follow up kick to spring ahead early. To prove how little parity there was on the night, Ebon fired back with a jab and a kick of his own to score two consecutive points, tying the two yet again. A checked kick earned Matt his next lead as he outwitted a moving Ebon. The nerves that may had led to a volatile first fight seemed to be settling now as the two spent the next several rounds patiently probing each other's stances, finding no real gain or loss between them. Another trade of vicious blows brought Matt back to familiar territory at match point. Ebon's style of relentless aggression found him equalizing once more as he forced sudden death yet again. This would prove to be a pivotal round on the night. The weight of his first Opal hanging overhead may have caused Ebon to go a little gunshy, or maybe it was just the right choice at the wrong time, but Matt came out ahead in the final round as Ebon pulled his punch in the tenth. Experience would prove to be the decider in the final match of the evening. The two opened with an exchange of punches in the opening round and there was no looking back. The copious amounts of challenges Matt has had in his career lent themselves now as he did not look back firing off consecutive scoring rounds ending the last match in just six rounds. With scores of 4-5 in 9, 5-4 in 10 and 5-1 in 6, Matt defends MoonBeryl.

Delahada     2020-08-16 - 2021-03-01   ( 197 days )

♦ 08-16-20 On the night of the first Duel of Fists All Ranks Tournament, fifteen fighters came out to compete for the coveted MoonBeryl Opal as well as the new Fistmelda's Tusk. Of these fifteen only one fighter came out on top dropping only a single duel on the night. Boasting a record of 5-1 on the night including a nailbiter sudden death finish in the grand finals, Salvador chose MoonBeryl as his prize, claiming his first Opal.
♦ 10-09-20 Salvador's first challenge came by the means of Jaycy with the intent to secure one of the remaining last two Opals she needs for All Titles in DoF. The first bout started out with both fighters earning modest scores. Jaycy took the first lead but soon found herself on the receiving end of Salvador's brutality in the ring. After securing just two points for herself, Salvador launched his counter and struck Jaycy with consecutive attacks to claim the first bout. Much like the first, Jaycy opened up with a lead, only to find herself caught in limbo with Salvador. In a different pace the fighters measured one another with various defenses. This cold war eventually came to a close however as Salvador yet again pulled away to solidify his defense with a well timed uppercut. The defense came with identical scores, 5-2 in 7 and 5-2 in 10, earning Salvador his first Opal defense.

Michelle Montoya     2019-12-14 - 2020-07-12   ( 211 days )

♦ 12-14-19 After a first round bye in the Winds of Winter Tournament, Michelle (recently dubbed the OverTentacle by some, given she was also Overlord and had undergone some physical changes in recent days), scored a 5-0 shutout in the second round against Tass and then came back from a 4+-3+ deficit to defeat Matt Simon in the finals and take hold of MoonBeryl.
♦ 04-29-20 With the Opals newly reformed and the Simon family's well documented obsession with the gems, it perhaps wasn't surprising that both Koy and Matt issued challenge within minutes of each other. Koy chose to challenge for MoonBeryl and she found Michelle Montoya well-prepared for the match. Michelle defended the yellow Opal in 2 straight matches that lasted a total of 14 rounds (5-3 in 9; 5-1 in 5) and one half of the double-Simon bid was thus foiled!
♦ 07-12-20 Due to her victory in Diamond Quest 102, Michelle left MoonBeryl behind to become the second holder of the Black Diamond!

Penny Escobar     2018-11-15 - 2019-11-16   ( 366 days )

♦ 11-15-18 In the week long Great Gobble Tournament, Penny led the Underdog team to victory with 45 points (just edging out Cane) to claim the vacant opal.
♦ 05-16-19 In a reciprocal challenge, Jewell challenged Penny for her Outback title. The challenge itself lasted three duels, with Jewell taking the first 5-3 in 6 rounds after building a 3-0 lead. She built a 3-1 lead in the second duel but Penny came back to win 5-3 in 8 before taking a 3-1 lead of her own in the final duel on her way to a 5-2 in 6 victory to defend her status as the yellow opal's holder!
♦ 11-16-19 With no publicly announced reason, Penny retired MoonBeryl a year and a day after winning it in the 2018 Great Gobble Tournament.

♦ 01-14-18 Diamond Quest 92 saw Matt taking the runner up position. Emerging from a field of six, he lost the sudden death bout to Lilith, who had defeated him earlier in the evening. MoonBeryl which had sat vacant for fifty five days fell back into Matt's hands.

Xerzes Maureen     2017-08-31 - 2017-11-20   ( 81 days )

♦ 08-31-17 Xerzes returns to the opal game and takes down the Anvil in 3 bouts. 5-4 in 9, 3-5 in 9 and 5-4 in 12
♦ 11-20-17 Xerzes fails to accept a challenge from Kruger and finds himself stripped of the opal.

Kruger Allen     2017-06-11 - 2017-08-31   ( 81 days )

♦ 06-11-17 In his very first Opal Challenge, Kruger takes down Matt Simon in 3 bouts. 5-1 in 6, 3-5 in 10 and 5-2 in 6.

Matthew Algiers Simon     2017-04-09 - 2017-06-11   ( 63 days )

Claire Caelum     2016-07-09 - 2017-01-15   ( 190 days )

♦ 07-10-16 Claire was the first to challenge Matt, despite his holding the yellow rock for more than a year. She took him down in straight sets, 5-2 in 6 and 5-4 in 8.
♦ 09-03-16 Matt came looking to take the yellow rock back, but Claire had other plans. In three close fights she sent him packing. 5-4, 3-5, 5-4.
♦ 01-15-17 Winning DQ LXXXVIII, Claire leaves MoonBeryl behind as she takes the Diamond.

Matthew Algiers Simon     2015-05-27 - 2016-07-09   ( 409 days )

♦ 05-27-15 Matt Simon proved too much for Sai to handle and took the opal in three bouts (5-4, 2-5, 5-3) to secure his gods-only-know-how-many'th opal challenge win.

Saieniel Dueth     2015-04-06 - 2015-05-27   ( 51 days )

♦ 04-06-15 Saieniel didn't waste any time in trying again and in their second dance Hope wasn't quiet up to the task. This one went to the challenger in two bouts; 5-4 and 5-3.
