May 2021 Archmage Tournament

Post by Max Lager »

The May Archmage Tournament will be held on Sunday, May 9th at 8:00pm Eastern! The format will (likely) be double elimination (depending on entrants), and late entrants have no more than 5 minutes to arrive. Seeding will begin at 8:05pm, and casting will begin at 8:10pm.

Seeding will be based on the most recent RoK rankings. Early registration will cut off on Friday, May 7th at 8:55pm ET. Any late registrants or walk-ins will automatically be ranked below early registrants. Registrants tied with the same ranking will be seeded by WoL.

Please post your registrations as replies to this thread. Good luck everyone!

(( This is a reminder that we do have a 5 minute casting limit each round in order to try and keep the tourney from running too late. In the case anyone needs more than 5 minutes for an urgent/special circumstance, please alert the caller, opponent, and the room so that they know you need a few minutes and will return asap. Thanks! ))

Second place will also take home an additional prize in the form of the Keeper's Blessing.

Keeper's Blessing

1. Allows the wielder of this grant the ability to use a special one time use Elemental Fury crystal within a challenge against a Keeper. This crystal will allow its wielder the use of Elemental Fury up to three times within a challenge (should the challenge go to 3 full duels). The power of the Elemental Fury Crystal can only be used once per match. The Keeper's Blessing is available for use until the next Archmage Tournament.

- or -

2. Allows the wielder to submit the Blessing to the Duel of Magic staff to be redeemed for a Challenge Grant that can be awarded to any non-Sorcerer duelist of their choice. This grant will allow its wielder to challenge one of the four elemental keeper titles so long as the keeper is not under a grace period. This grant must be used within 14 days.

(( Should 2nd place go to a current Elemental Keeper, they can only select the second option to give the grant away, and cannot select the EF crystal since they're already a keeper. ))

In honor of the most recent (this past Wednesday) holiday, we'll be continuing the celebration with some delicious eats from Puebla!

Get some Mole Poblano, which is a delicious blend of chile, chocolate, toasted seeds and nuts, and so much more, mole poblano is the royalty of Mexican sauces! Pour it over some roasted chicken or turkey and served with rice! There are also chalupas, served with festive red or green salsas referencing the flag of Mexico. And some molotes which are deep fried masa stuffed with chorizo (or cheese in our menu's case)! Great for snacking!

Grab a freshly baked cemitas (a sesame sandwich bun) and stuff it with fixings for a delicious sandwich, or partake in the national dish from Puebla, Chiles en Nogada (a dish of poblano chiles stuffed with picadillo topped with a walnut-based cream sauce, pomegranate seeds and parsley, served at room temperature).

For the sweet tooth there's heart shaped churros, apple caramel empanadas and conchas (sweet breads that look like sea shells)!

To wash it all down we have pomegranate and pineapple margaritas as well as traditional lime margarita jello shots! (All with non-alcoholic options!)
