Lilith Anderson     2020-09-29 - Present   ( 202 days )

For the third time in a row, nearly as soon as the new reign was made official, Cadentia was under challenge. Lilith Anderson, by right of earning the title of Warden of Overlook for her performance in the previous cycle, used the King's Decree to challenge Anubis. The two had exchanged barbs regarding Anubis choosing to go loyal to the Overlord - though details of what Lilith took issue with were vague. Lilith was much more direct in the challenge. Anubis chose a best of three format, but Lilith controlled the match itself and won in two straight duels, 5-4 in 10 rounds and 5-2 in 7 rounds. Would the revolving door of Cadentia come to a halt with her, or would the Barony continue to be involved in a game of hot potato? (link)

Lilith's first challenge came from a first time challenger. Recent recipient of a Yuletide Challenge Grant, Yuzuki Kuwabara challenged Lilith for the Barony of Cadentia. Perhaps it was because she was seconded by the infamous camel Bert and he wanted to live there? Regardless, the two met and Lilith deferred to Yuzuki on the format, which became a best of three. The first duel was an evenly matched contest, and went to sudden death. Lilith was able to pull away with a well-timed defense and unanswered strike to win 5.5-4. Yuzuki opened the second match by going out to a quick 2-0 lead, but the Triple Crown Winner then took control and scored the final five points to secure her first defense by a score of 5-2. (link)

Anubis Karos     2020-09-10 - 2020-09-29   ( 19 days )

Maybe what goes around comes around? Morgan had but a day to officially enjoy the Barony before - just as he had promised - Anubis Karos made his challenge. The two met in a best of three match, and Morgan was unable to replicate the success of his previous challenge matches. Though Morgan got on the board first, Anubis scored five unanswered points to win the first duel 5-1 in 8 rounds. The second match did not fare any better for the defending Baron, who appeared to suffer a serious knee injury, and Anubis pounced on the opportunity to win the second duel by the same score of 5-1 in an even faster time of 6 rounds. Now the new Baron of Cadentia, the question is: will Anubis have long to enjoy it, or will he be challenged just as fast as the previous two holders? (link)

Morgan Chae     2020-08-24 - 2020-09-10   ( 17 days )

Morgan jumped on the opportunity to challenge for the title giving Myria Graziano just a few moments to enjoy the hard-won barony. At the time of this challenge, Lilith Anderson retained the benefits of the Overlord title though she had recently been defeated by Hope Naharis. Lilith decided to test challenger Chae. Neekylah Lang, Chae's second, countered the test using an Intercession Grant that she earned at the most recent All Ranks Tournament. Although it was a long, close fight, Lilith prevailed 5-3 in 14 rounds. Lilith was then able to proceed with her test -- but Chae was determined to see his challenge through. He put up a near perfect match, defeating Overlord Anderson 5-0 in 6 rounds. That striking momentum carried him forward against Baron Graziano. Chae allowed Graziano just one point before he scored four unanswered points, winning the title on a final SLASH, 5-1 in 6 rounds. As Morgan left the Arena to celebrate his victory with his second Neekylah, rumors were already spreading that one Anubis Karos had his eye on the barony. (link)

Myria Graziano     2020-08-06 - 2020-08-24   ( 18 days )

The vacant Barony of Cadentia was included as a key prize in the summer King of the Ring tournament. The tournament had filled quickly with stand-by entrants and on the night in question it was not long before the twelve duelists began to see who could be at the top. Among a variety of places and prizes the Barony of Cadentia was awarded to Myria Graziano for their first place finish. (link)

Na-rae Takamine     2020-05-07 - 2020-07-14   ( 68 days )

Looking for a lovely timeshare-esque spot in the desert, former DoS Sports Coordinator Na-rae Takamine challenged Mallory Maeda for the newest barony in Cadentia. The challenge took place in the Cadentia Villa itself, under the starry sky. Fighting in a single match for the barony, Mallory took an early lead, but Na-rae persevered tying the score at 3 - 3. She kept the lead for a while longer, before it switched back to Mallory, at a thrilling 4 - 4.5. Unfortunately, that was the closest the horned witch would come to defending as Na-rae would take the lead once more tipping the score over five points and closing out 6 - 4.5 in 15 rounds. (link)

After 68 days holding the Cadentia Barony, Na-rae decided to end her reign on two lucky numbers. (link)

Mallory Maeda     2019-08-25 - 2020-05-07   ( 256 days )

Lost then found! With the 7th Rings rediscovery it was chosen by Arena staff to host a Sword and Sorcery tournament with cooperation with the Duel of Magic to see that the now named Barony of Cadentia would find a new home — along with the staff of Merlin! Teams of two were asked to register, one for the sport of Magic and the other for Swords. Those of the Magic portion of the tournament were tasked to gather enough magical essence to imbue their partners weapon of choice that would then be wielded in the Swords portion of the spectacular: A single elimination tournament to be held at the end of event!

The team of Overlord Mallory Maeda and her squire, the giant Runt, were among the multiple entries — and it was their partnership that saw victory in the end! Mallory's triumphant win in the swords portion of the tournament gave her the opportunity to step down as Overlord of the Duel of Swords to become the first Baron of Cadentia. Her squire, Runt, did much of the same; choosing to retire the sword and shield of the Overlords squire to take on the kopesh the Cadentia Barony had to offer. - (link)

The first challenge to Cadentia came from Lord Bile. Bile wished to force a test of worthiness against himself so that he may step into the challenge ring opposite of then current Overlord Jewell Ravenlock. Bile's request, sadly, was not fulfilled — as on the night of a cardboard cutout featuring the visage of the Overlord stood in the ring while flesh and blood overlooked from the Overlord skybox up high. Enraged, Bile leapt through the air after igniting his saber and sought to cleave the Cadentia Baroness in two. Both Bile's maneuver and Mallory's attempt at countering with a bolt from held crossbow, would be muddled with magical help from Max Lager who enchanted the ring mid-conflict to turn both challenger and defenders weapons into toy replicas. The single-duel challenge continued on, albeit less bloody, and saw Bile having much of the "high ground" throughout the match. Bile stood strong at match point but the Cadentia Baroness wouldn't allow the challenger his wanted taste of victory. Mallory tied the challenge match in the 8th round with a chasing cut for the ducking Bile then finishing in her favor by outflanking Bile's defense in the 9th. With her defense complete Mallory secured her place as the Baroness of Cadentia. - (link)
