Notes from the Isle

May 10th - May 16th

-Week 2 of 9-

ANNOUNCEMENTS: Two Towers are currently under challenge right now! How exciting! First up is Matt Simon wanting to go after the Tower of Earth and its current holder, Rachael Blackthorne! Matt’s held the other three elemental towers so far in his personal history on the Isle, so will he punch his way into a win or will Rachael’s green thumb crush him into the ground?

Bellamere is splashing his way into the challenge pool now that he’s one of two freshly appointed Mages in our sport (yes, it is true that you only have to be of Sorcerer rank to challenge, you don’t have to wait!), by posting a challenge to Eregor the current Keeper of the Tower of Water! Will the man of many names ride the wave of his most recent successes in the rings and win himself a Tower and the Keepership? Or will Eregor’s reign wash over this new challenger as another defense?

Have you heard the latest rumors on the Isle? There is talk about dark healers with whispered names, trickster pixies playing pranks, and growing and budding gardens flourishing on the Isle! The Twilight Market is a good place to sit back, get your tea leaves read, search for mystical tomes, and catch up on local gossip! Be sure to stop by Gardenhome Orchards on Twilight Trail! Rumor has it they have the sweetest fruits in all the market! Try the strawberries and raspberries today!

Note: Alasdair Galloway won an Empowered Water Gem on 3/15/2020 in the All Rank’s tournament. This awards the usage of Elemental Fury in regulation matches until the end of next cycle. Goldglo won a Ragnarok Infused Magic Orb on 3/15/2020 in the All Rank’s tournament. This awards the use of a Mage Spell in regulation matches for the remainder of the cycle. Goldglo selected Immolation.

NEWS FROM OTHER VENUES: The former Archbae is now the newly crowned Overbae and the latest Triple Crown! Congratulations to Lilith Anderson on an incredible season in Maddess and her latest win! We're sure to see Jewell back in the rings for the Arena soon, swinging that scepter and sporting some sparkling hotpants much to her fans delight! The Hero of New Haven's year long reign has come to an end with Michelle besting Alasdair and taking the barony for herself! Michelle is now representing in all three sports, aka holding a title in all three! Incredible! The end to his reign however didn't seem to discourage or disappoint the Hero of New Haven though, he was seen out on the Isle the same night and ranked up to Wizard there! And for the bloodthirsty crowd, the Seaside match did not disappoint! While Salvador continues on as the baron, Jaycy made an incredible comeback from the round 4 score where Salvador had hit match point and she'd just got on the board once. After she tied things up in this brutral match of claws and blood, they pressed on in a couple trades until the final score of 7 - 6 in round 10 with the Baron's win. Coming up is the Old Market Challenge where Hope is challenging Rhiannon! There was a question regarding Squires and DoS answered! Could we be seeing a Squire involved? Come out next Sunday and see! Are you a Baron and don't have a Squire? Contact Cajsa Storm today!

Have you checked out the returned Opals in the Outback? Well, they might not physically be in the Outback, but with their respective holders, but word on the street is that they look different! But that's usually how things are when you break them and put them all back together, right? Are they stronger now? Challenge for one today! There's PathFinder, MoonBeryl, and ShadoWeaver all available to be challenged for right now! Currently under challenge is IceDancer, with Gren Blockman trying for an All Title holder in the Outback, but he'll need to punch and wrestle it from Matt Simon's hands! I heard people sometimes call it BeerCooler. Do you think Gren will use it to keep his Broot chilled?

DEBUTS: Welcome Szuzak Mos!

ADVANCEMENTS: Alasdair Galloway advances to Wizard! The Sublime Bellamere, and Xune Vandree advance to Mage!

THE RING OF KLYTUS: The holder for this cycle is Jaycy Alexander! The ring grants an additional focus over the normally allotted amount, but is still limited to the maximum of 3 foci.

Cycle Ranks Through Week 2

Cycle rankings show how duelists perform over the course of the cycle, with the top performer earning the Ring of Klytus (provided they began the cycle below the rank of Mage). To balance percentage performance duelists are broken into 3 brackets based on number of duels fought, with top accolades achievable by only those in the upper tier. Duelists are ordered first by bracket, then by winning percentage, followed by the number of wins and lastly by low rank to high.
