G'nexit

Post by Saul Heyman »

Ladies and Gentlemen, my name is Saul Heyman, and I am the advocate for the Best in the World, The first ever Arena All Title Holder, the Best there is, the Best there ever was, the Best there ever will be. G'nort Dragoon-Talanador. Did you miss me? But that doesn't matter, no, not at all. It doesn't matter because this announcement is not about me. No, it's not. No, it is not. This announcement is a courtesy from me to you on behalf of my client, G'nort Dragoon-Talanador.

That's okay, you can boo me, you can jeer me, you can loathe me, and that's okay. However, it does not stop me from making this announcement. My client has authorized me to announce an upcoming tour. A Farewell Tour. No, you silly bunnies, not my farewell tour. I'm available to be hired at any time by anyone who wishes to have an advocate for their skills. This Farewell Tour is for my current client, G'nort Dragoon-Talanador. A 'G'nexit' if you will.

Starting this Thursday, August 4th, 2016, my client will be appearing in the Arena and accepting a duel from anyone and everyone who asks, he will not say 'No' unless he is already on his way out for the evening. This will continue from this Thursday until Thursday, November 17th, 2016 so that there are plenty of chances for everyone to participate. Then, on Saturday, November 19th, 2016, he will appear in the Annex exactly twenty years to the day he first appeared on the Duel of Swords standings.

Twenty years. Ladies and gentlemen, think about that. Twenty years is a long time, isn't it? A long time to be a force in the Arena. It's likely that some of you may not have even been alive that long, let alone dueling. But if you know your history, then you know what he's done here and what a fixture he has been.

Anyway. On this final night, on the twentieth anniversary of his first appearance on the standings, you, that's right, you, could be the one who officially retires my client, G'nort Dragoon-Talanador. Just think of the bragging rights for doing that. Now, Salvador Delahada is guaranteed the first chance on this night, and if he wins, then that's it. He will be retired and the bragging rights go to Salvador Delahada. Of course, should Salvador lose, then whoever steps up to the plate next will be awarded that right. And no, there will be no booking matches in advance, it's just first come first serve. This will continue until someone defeats my client, G'nort Dragoon-Talanador or until the Annex closes. Should my client go undefeated the entire evening, that will be that and he shall go quietly into the night to enjoy the retirement he's so rightly earned.

This offer is open to every single duelist from the past, every single duelist in the present, and every single duelist who may ever be. Except Anubis Karos because nobody likes him. Any other duelist, the offer is open. Anyone can be the one who officially retires my client. What a title that will make.

What this night will have for you, all of you, even Anubis if he wishes to entertain us with his presence, will be a party like atmosphere. There will be food, there will be drinks, there will be music and everything that everybody loves about special events like this. Once in a life time events such as the retirement of my client, G'nort Dragoon-Talanador.

So, every Thursday starting this week until November 17th, be sure to take advantage of this last chance offer. The last chances anyone will have to face off against my client in an official capacity. I mean, he will likely do charity events, maybe even appear in league events should it make sense. But as far as regular dueling goes, he will be retired and these will be your last chances to take advantage of facing him. Come one, come all. Come face the Legend, my client, G'nort Dragoon-Talanador.

((Twenty years is a hell of a long time to have been dueling! I felt it proper to have a sort of good send off for the dueling career of G and the 20th anniversary seems like the perfect time to do it. ICly, G won't do any official duels anymore but if there's like, a charity ball event or an old timers battle or what have you, he might duel in that. Now, Nov. 19th is about 4 months off, so that gives me time to come up with icons and special "rules" lol There's been a discussion before about dueling with walkers and canes, so there's a good chance of that. But the duelist who officially retires G will get a special Icon on both RDI and RoH indicating such! All duels will be important duels! This is going to be basically an image thing to him, so he'll take those fights more seriously than regular duels, but maybe not so much as a challenge duel! The above post is also all in good fun! Stay tuned for more infomation to come out on the 'G'nexit!" :D)

Reminder everyone.

This is TONIGHT!!

Come to the Arena and see if you can beat me into retirement!

I will be accepting duels, to a max of Four matches tonight from anyone, starting with Salvador Delahada. The first person to defeat me, will also be the last person I ever fight in the Arena, Annex, etc.

Of course, charitable events and the like are open to negotiation, but really, nothing regulation.

Everyone who shows up will get a little 20th anniversary pin!

Image

Everyone will get a G'nort 3:16 T-shirt!

Image

And the lucky winner who retires me gets a superstar badge!

So, come on and let's see what happens!!

With an epic 10 round battle, My final match in the Arena or Annex saw me fall to the hooked blades of one Salvador Delahada by a final score of 6-5.

I had hoped to perhaps get a few more matches in, for a final night, but am pretty darned okay with how it ended up. As such, I have given my famous Warhammer, Skuld the DeBugger, Hammer of Justice, to he who has vanquished me and sentenced me to the realm of a lovely woman sometimes in a bikini, sometimes less, sunning herself on the deck of my ship in a tropical island location for the remainder of my days, Salvador Delahada, for safekeeping until such time as it is seen fit to give to the Museum of Dueling Artifacts, or whatever it is called, I've never been much for art.

It has been a wonderful 20 years of dueling. November 19th was when I first appeared on the standings and I felt it perfect to end my career the same weekend, if 20 years later.

Thank you to everyone who took part in my matches tonight as both fighter, caller and spectator, and thank you to every duelist who has ever fought me, lost to me, beat me, had me challenge them, or challenge me.

To new duelists who have yet to step in the ring, or are relatively and genuinely new to the world of swordfighting, never give up, never surrender. Nothing worth doing is ever easy, and when you accomplish your goals, you will feel that much better for doing it.

That said, may the Arena Administration hereby consider this my official notice of retirement from the rings of the Arena and Annex.

Remember, the pointy end goes in the other person.

Auf Wiedersehen,
G'nort Dragoon-Talanador
