To the Overbaker of Overlords, The Lady Michelle Montoya-Bidarte,

By virtue of the prize I won in the recent Duel of Swords All Ranks Tournament, I hereby challenge you for the title of Overlord.

I look forward to meeting you in the ring and hope that we will do honor to our respective family legacies in the Arena.

Sincerely,

Tonight Michelle Montoya faced challenger Maggie Harker for the title of Overlord, which was decided in the best-of-three format! They stayed close early in the first match, but Michelle broke into a late lead and ended it in her favor 5-2 in 11 rounds. The second match stayed closer, and after seventeen long rounds, Michelle managed to win 6-5 and secure a successful defense. Well tried, Maggie, and well defended, Michelle!

Transcript:

Our challenger, Maggie, is fighting under the colors of midnight black and snow white, with a banner with a polar bear and other symbols of her heritage. Her seconds are her mother, Rhiannon Harker, and her cousin, Jacen Balthazar. Her honor court is her father, Dennis Harker; the Túr Gairdín family: Eregor, Rhiannon, Alinar, Colleen and Brian; and her grandparents: Richard and Margaret Harker, Colleen MacLeod, and Tass Momus.

Michelle Montoya fights under the dual banners of House Atrebla and House Royal. Her second is her esteemed mentor, friend, and teammate: Baronness Gloria Blaze. Her people of honor are her deceased father, Condextint Montoya; her mother, Ann Montoya; and her beloved husband, Derrick Bidarte.

Overlord Grace

Should an Overlord have a Majority of Loyal Barons (4/3 of Barons in favor of the Overlord), then the Overlord will be given a 30 day grace period after successfully defending their title against a Warlord. No other duelist of the Warlord Rank will be able to challenge them*. The grace period will end should there be a change to a Renegade majority.

1. Renegade Barons will still be able to challenge for Overlord, and their challenge will supersede this 30 day grace period.

2. The rules for banished Loyal Barons will be the same as they are written now -- in other words, a challenge made by a banished Loyal Baron will supersede all other challenges.

* Special Cases: Warlords who win an Overlord Challenge Grants from the Warlord Tournament, Madness, or any special events, will supersede wait periods. This will also count as a normal Warlord challenge and the grace period will be rewarded to the Overlord for successfully defending. Should the Overlord have been within grace, and the grant user supersede it, then grace will reset back to 30 days once the challenge process is complete and the Overlord defends.

An Overlords 30 day grace period will begin when the Official Standings are updated to reflect the challenge results (Sunday's at 6 PM EST). Should the Official Standings be late, the 30 day grace period will still begin at 6 PM EST on the Sunday after a successful challenge. Challenges to the Overlord by Renegade Barons or special grant holders will still need to follow the challenge process in those rare times standings are updated late. (aka, a challenge isn't considered officially over until the official standings are updated).
The Overlords grace period will begin once the official updates to the standings occurs on Sunday, October 20th at 6 PM (ET) and will end Tuesday, November 19, 2019 at 6 PM (ET). The grace may be waived if the Overlord wishes.
