November 2020 Archmage Tournament

Post by Max Lager » Sun Oct 18, 2020 1:54 pm

The November Archmage Tournament will be held on Sunday, November 1st 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, October 30th 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 a newly minted 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. ))

School schedule’s a little crazy, but barring something coming up, I’d like to give this another shot.

Marigolds in bright golden hues line pathways from the Twilight Isle Portal and from the Twilight isle Market to the dueling area. Tissue paper cut out decorations float effortlessly about brightly colored food tables and chairs. There is a seven layer or tiered Ofrenda (or alter) decorated with flowers, food for the dead, incense and candles. If you would like to place a photo of a deceased or undead loved one you are more than welcome to! And we have some friends from the nearby Dead Scar providing free face painting for spectators and duelers. Flower headpieces are also being made and given out to those who wish one!


It wouldn’t be a party or a fun tournament without TONS of food! Check out the nacho bar or serve yourself a plate of enchiladas! My favorite is the chicken mole!


To drink there’s glasses of horchata (available spiked with some rum!), Pomegranate Sangria, Tequila Sunsets and Apple Cinnamon Margaritas! There’s mugs of hot chocolate and apple cider too for those who stick away from alcohol! And as always the bar is fully stocked!


I made sure to mix up some of my special sugar cookies for the evening! They are so colorfully festive!


And of course there’s the brightly decorated sugar skulls!


Unable to stick around for the full tournament or want to be sure to take something home for your friend who couldn’t make it to the isle tonight? As always, we have to-go boxes! Tonight, they’re adorable and coffin shaped!


Good luck to everyone participating tonight and I hope to see everyone here on Twilight Isle this evening!
