Nine worthy Duelists arrived the evening of July 23rd in The Outback all hopeful of joining the ranks of their predecessors in the record books but not to hold just any record. Tonight was a very special record they were seeking for this was the night of the Duel of Fists 50th Diamond Quest!!!

People came from all around to watch and cheer, not just to participate, as I was there and saw and heard them my very own self. The lovely and charming Lady Wyheree Ravenlock-Black and I, Lady Tera Starfare officiated the duels for the fighters. And let me tell you there were some amazing duels this evening.

Those dueling were in order of seeding: Matt, Jaycy, Tarl, Kheldar, Xerzes, Max, Vinny, Art, and Cass. In the first round of dueling Matt got the bye and our first of SIX, yes you read that correctly, six Sudden Death matches occurred. Xerzes and Max went to Sudden Death before Max came out the winner and Kheldar and Vinny went to Sudden Death before Kheldar brought the match home the winner. Artemus and Jaycy also won their matches establishing our first round winner and loser brackets.

The second round of dueling saw two more Sudden Death matches with Matt going to Sudden Death with Artemus and finally winning it and Tarl and Cass ending up going to 14 rounds in a grueling duel that saw Sudden death before Tarl brought it home for the win. Vinny defeated Xerzes and Kheldar defeated Max.

In the third round Tarl came up with the one and only shutout of this DQ and it was against Max. Matt come up with a win against the only female to enter the 50th Diamond Quest, Jaycy. And in yet another match that went to Sudden Death Art swept the fancy dodging Vinny for the win.

Round four saw Jaycy facing Art and she took the win while Matt and Kheldar squared off and Kheldar just kept right on rolling over opponents. The next round was the fifth round and Kheldar was the only remaining undefeated duelist so he got to sit out for certain. Jaycy had won her last duel and Matt lost so it was Matt against Tarl since I figured this was all about fighting fighting should determine who fought. Tarl was valiant but in the end Matt came out the winner to face Jaycy in round six.

These two didn’t disappoint anyone either even though by now it was getting quite late and both had faced several opponents already. They took this match to Sudden Death in 8 rounds then went defensive for a round before Matt ended up with the win to face the undefeated as of yet Kheldar.

With the Witching hour of Midnight a good two hours behind us by now Matt and Kheldar faced off in the ring and opened by exchanging jabs! They would go on to further test each other in a battle not only of brawn but of wits as both tried to fake each other out as well as beating on each other folks but in the end only one can win in the rings and it was to be Kheldar with back-to-back Diamonds in his pocket that would lay claim to the honor of the title of 50th Diamond of the Duel of Fists!!!

Not to take away from this awesome accomplishment but it must be noted that as second prize in this Quest the Opal Pathfinder is awarded to Matt and he did state that he wanted to think about it a bit before deciding if he was going to accept this prize.

Many thanks to everyone that participated in this grand and glorious event and to all those that came to watch and cheer!!!
