Time's up Vanion. I'm coming for the key before the separation anxiety hits.

Foreseeable, though perhaps you did not learn your lesson before. Keepers should be required to prove themselves through tested mettle and skill, not luck. While being challenged by a non-mage is nearly laughable and a waste of my time, win or lose, I accept.

Be expecting a few suprises, though.

You keep bringing up luck. Why is that? Only fools hide behind such a feable concept. Attributing every win or loss to luck good or ill is childish and beneath the maturity level that is expected of a magic user, let alone a mage. I'm done talking Vanion, do your worst for I will do mine. I'll let my magic speak for me.

Your magic is pathetic, and I do not(and have not) needed the auspecies of the "rings" to show that to you in the past. But as I said, be prepared to be suprised.

There is nothing wrong with luck. It's the one variable that is not subject to progression like the skills with the blade, fist, or magic.

Final Results: Vanion Shadowcaster successfully defended against Artemus Kurgen.


However, the Keeper of Earth has retired the key after this defense...

Round One

DUEL Shard (7:40:01 PM): Round One. The Keeper's bolt falls short as Art fills him with terror. (ft/mb, 1-0 Art)
DUEL Shard (7:42:34 PM): Round Two. They compare protections, but Vanion's looks better. (sh/rf, 1-.5 Art)
DUEL Shard (7:45:21 PM): Round Three: Art manages to cover his nose in time. (ar/ff, 1.5-.5 Art)
DUEL Shard (7:47:14 PM): Round Four: Again, Vanion's bolt falls short. Apparently, Art likes to put the fear in him. (ft/mb, 2.5-.5 Art)
DUEL Shard (7:49:49 PM): Round Five: However, Art's armor isn't enough to protect him from the invisible whippings of Vanion's cruel mind. (ar/mw, 2.5-1.5 Art)
DUEL Shard (7:52:19 PM): Round Six. Art gets all fuzzy looking, and Vanion shields up. No joy. (gf/sh, still 2.5-1.5 Art)
DUEL Shard (7:54:12 PM): Round Seven. Trying to be savvy, they instead run right into each other. (dp/dp, 3-2 Art)
DUEL Shard (7:56:34 PM): Round Eight. Vanion sends it right back towards Art. (mw/rf, 3 all)
DUEL Shard (7:58:31 PM): Round Nine. Vanion calls fire from the sky, but Art is ready for it. (sh/im, 3.5-3 Art)
DUEL Shard (8:00:10 PM): Round Ten: Apparently Mage bolts are heat seeking. (dp/mb, 4-3.5 Vanion)
DUEL Shard (8:03:03 PM): Round Eleven: However, Mind Whip is not. (ff/mw, 4 all)
DUEL Shard (8:05:21 PM): Round Twelve: Again they compare defense. Again, Vanion's is a little better. (sh/rf, 4.5-4 Vanion)
DUEL Shard (8:07:54 PM): Round Thirteen. Again, Mind Whips aren't heat seeking. (mw/ff, 5-4 Vanion)

DUEL Shard (8:08:15 PM): First Round Final: Vanion Shadowcast def. Artemus Kurgen, 5-4 in 13.

Round Two

DUEL Shard (8:12:55 PM): Round One: Art's armor just barely absorbs some of Vanion's spellcasting. (ar/im, .5-0 Vanion)
DUEL Shard (8:15:33 PM): Round Two: Vanion has better showmanship! (sh/rf, 1-0 Vanion)
DUEL Shard (8:17:25 PM): Round Three: I think the term is "slag". (wb/im, 2-0 Vanion)
DUEL Shard (8:21:00 PM): Round Four: Vanion covers his nose in time. (ff/sh, 2.5-0 Vanion)
DUEL Shard (8:22:46 PM): Round Five: Heat seeking missiles! (dp/mb, 3.5-0 Vanion)
DUEL Shard (8:25:07 PM): Round Six: They compare defenses, but no joy. (gf/sh, still 3.5-0 Vanion)
DUEL Shard (8:26:48 PM): Round Seven: In a great show of his Tower's abilities, Vanion buries the touchy-feely Art (ft/ef, 4.5-0 Vanion)
DUEL Shard (8:32:36 PM): Round Eight: No joy. (dp/rf, still 4.5-0 Vanion)
DUEL Shard (8:34:05 PM): Round Nine. The blades found their mark. (ff/wb, 5.5-0 Vanion)

DUEL Shard (8:34:57 PM): Final: Vanion Shadowcast def. Artemus Kurgen, 5.5-0 in 9
Take away the phantom, and one sees nothing - one admits that himself. Yet, take away seeing, and one sees a phantom - one forgets that.
