115th Diamond Rules

Post by Delahada »

I wasn’t going to make any rules, but then I changed my mind because I earned the right as the 115th Diamond Delahada. They’re more like guidelines, though, because I’m not going to bother enforcing them much. Except maybe number two, and if you show me a receipt I will pay you for a couple other ones. Follow them, or don’t, until someone else wins the best rock.


Rule #1 : The Autumn is in control for the rest of the year, whether you like it or not. Keep every match spooky by declaring “Skulls and Horror!”

Rule #2 : Do not step on Armando. If you hurt him, Eden will cry, and then I’ll have to hurt you.

Rule #3 : Don’t be a coward. Come out and fight me. Beat me ten times to win a shiny badge and a bag full of money.*

Rule #4 : Don’t be lazy, get out to fight. If you see any Opals being lazy, challenge them. I’ll even pay you.

Rule #5 : The best ring is the Pit. Don’t be a wuss about the weevils. Get in there, get dirty, and win.*

Rule #6 : Drink whatever you want; I don’t care. But pay for it yourself. I only pay people to fight or work for me.

Rule #7 : Beat someone by avoiding everything they throw at you like the ultimate badass you think you are and I’ll give you a lot of money.*

Rule #8 : Don’t trash the place or set it on fire. There’s been enough of that.

Rule #9: There will be no rule number 10, because odd numbers are best. That's it.



(( Rules ending in an asterisk consist of duel requirements for which you can earn an achievement! These ones specifically: Excavator, Weevils, Why Wevils?, and Wall of Strength. I will be out in the dueling venues as often as possible, Sunday-Friday 8-10 and as late as I can stay awake on Saturdays, to help anyone trying to earn these, or any other DoF specific achievements. No, you do not have to beat me specifically ten times to earn the Excavator badge; beating past Diamonds counts toward that goal, but if you haven't beaten any yet this is a good time to start! Additionally, I have a lot of forum money, and will award 10K each to anyone who earns the Excavator and/or Wall of Strength achievements, as well as 5K each to anyone who participates in an Opal challenge as a fighter, during my reign as Diamond. Come on out, duel and have fun! ))

Excavation End of Week Tally

Post by Delahada »

Opal Excavation Week has come to an end, mostly. Diamond Delahada will no longer be tracking regulation duels, but the Fall All-Ranks Tournament has yet to conclude. The fate of the third place prize hangs in the balance! There are BIG PRIZES awaiting distribution, generously provided by the Duel of Fists Coordinator Nero Zhir (thank you)! Our top four winners will not be decided until the completion of the upcoming tournament being held on Saturday, November 25th! If the Fistmelda's Tusk isn't incentive enough, maybe we can entice you with one of these four cool prizes!





Currently in the lead are Opal holders Droet the Bold of 2022 IFL Championship Team Deathcake and the masochistic fashionista with the best taste in deadly footwear Koyliak VanDuran-Simon of Team Fist! Congratulations on kicking ass and taking names! Please notify the Diamond of your top choice prize at your earliest convenience. Final distribution will take place next week, after the conclusion of the DoF ART.

There were only a small few more duels since the scores were last tallied, and the ones that qualified are as follows.

11/16
FINAL: Koyliak def. Yuzuki Kuwabara, 5 - 4 in 10 rounds. - dof

11/17
FINAL: Delahada def. Runt, 5 - 4 in 9 rounds. - dof

11/18
FINAL: Delahada def. Doran Ilnaren, 5 - 4 in 15 rounds. - dof

Based on the above criteria, the following additions have been updated on the list of Master Miners.
  • Doran - 2 points, dueled the Diamond
  • Runt - 2 points, dueled the Diamond
  • Yuzu - 1 point for dueling an Opal
It's not too late to see your name on the list! All you have to do is sign up for and participate in the upcoming All-Ranks Tournament, and you, too, could walk away with one of the above super cool prizes in addition to the glory of being the tournament champion! But that's not all! The Rock Hards' teen dreamboat Doran Ilnaren walked away last night with a sneak peek prize, and everyone who participated in this event will be receiving something just like it!

As a token of his appreciation and a special thanks to everyone who came out to duel Fists during Dueler Appreciation Week, Diamond Delahada has commissioned the design and printing of some limited edition t-shirts! Stop by the Outback to pick up yours today!



Some duelists will be receiving more than one t-shirt where applicable. All shirts have been sized appropriately, including an extra super duper large "I dueled the Diamond" t-shirt special ordered just for Runt. Thank you for your participation!


(( Special thanks to DoF Coordinator Nero Zhir for coming up with the images and descriptions for these super cool and fun prizes, and to the DoF Team in general for approving of my special mini-event! Additional thanks to everyone who came out to duel! I hope you had as much fun as I did! ))
