The Setting
This year, the Winter Cycle Diamond Quest #XCVI tournament will take place at Winter Wonderland in Old Temple!

Each round of the tournament will take place in a different location:
RhyDin Eye Ferris Wheel
Each pair of fighters will be closed into a small carriage on the ferris wheel and fight as it slowly spins around, giving them a great view of the city

Double Decker Carousel
As the carousel spins around, fighters duck in and around the creepy fake horses to punch each other while also trying not to puke when they get too dizzy

Hakodate Snow Palace Ice Rink
If the lower ranked kiddos could do it for the Panther’s Claw, the Emeralds should have no problem fighting on the ice rink without skates! Slip and slide until you find your opponent and knock them out

Winter Market
Watch out for pedestrians! Rings have been marked out on the ground throughout the market but they’re hard to see when a sudden snow squall happens

To make it more interesting, it will be snowing all night!

((To make things easier, RP for this night will be taking place in the #annex but the IC setting will be Winter Wonderland))

The Rules
This event is going to be a double-elimination tournament. Seeding will be done by the fancy Emerald Ranking System (which I’ve never even noticed was a thing before) and then blah blah blah whoever wrote their name down first.

((Reminder: ANY character that has achieved the rank of Emerald, whether currently active or not on the standings, can join the DQ))


The Prizes
Last fighter standing will earn themselves a shiny Diamond. Oooooo

The second to last fighter standing will receive a magical snowflake in a tube. Open the tube up and let the snowflake float outside next time you need a day off from work

All other participants will receive a dead christmas tree

Six fighters entered the snow squall of the year, but only one remained standing at the end to win Diamond Quest XCVI: Gren Blockman!

Diamond Quest XCVI is over, so let’s talk damages!

Six Emeralds entered this snowy, frigid cold tournament to compete in some of the coolest rings ever dreamed up by anyone:
  • Matt Simon
  • Canaan Devillier
  • Rachael Blackthorne
  • Jin Chae
  • Jewell Ravenlock
  • Gren Blockman
Although he was ranked sixth, our fearless Ranger stole the show! He narrowly beat Rachael in Round 1, sending her to the Less Successful People’s Bracket. In Round 2, he faced off against Canaan and said goodbye to the Cajun! In Round 3, he sent the current Diamond (at the time of the tournament), Matt Simon, to the Loser’s Bracket in their first of three matches for the night. Thus, Gren was the winner of the Winner’s Bracket. Go Gren!

After being sent to the Loser’s Bracket, Matt beat Jin for the second time in one night (as they fought on a carousel), making himself the winner of the that bracket. He then went on to face Gren in the Finals. In their first rematch of the night, Diamond Simon stole the show on the dizzying RhyDin Eye ferris wheel during a blizzard. But worry not folks! In their third match of the night, the two met on solid ground once more and Gren made an epic comeback to beat Matt for the second time in one night, winning himself another Diamond!

Other notable performances of the night: Matt beat Jin in two matches throughout the night while Jin beat Jewell in two matches during the night, sending her to the Less Successful People’s Bracket and eventually sending her home. Jewell took advantage of first time Diamond Quest participant Canaan and secured the only shutout of the night, but to be fair, the guy had just finished fighting Gren and managed to dodge a few of his blows and knock him off his feet! Last but certainly not least, Rachael had an impressive first match against Gren where the Ranger narrowly beat her; she almost changed the trajectory of the entire night!

In the end, Gren Blockman went home with the Diamond and everyone else went home with dead Christmas trees. Hurrah!
