I was present to officiate the latest contest to decide who will be the ArchMage for the coming cycle! There were booms, and bangs! And other cool stuff.

The duels were as follows:
Olympus 1-1! These two start this challenge off in spectacular fashion, with Claire unleashing her rain of doom, as Jesse causes the skies to fall upon her! (NR/MS) 1-1
Olympus 1-2! The Archmage weaves a spell of protection! Jesse's sharp sending shatters right through it, however! (SH/FWB) 2.5-1 Jesse
Olympus 1-3! Claire unleashes an obscuring fog, but Jesse, shifting to ghostly form, is unaffected! (FF/FGF) 3.5-1 Jesse
Olympus 1-4! Jesse tries her own obscuring fog, and manages to halt the power of the Archmage's mighty bolt! (FMB/FFF) 4.5-1 Jesse
Olympus 1-5! Jesse tries to get away, but Claire decides now is the time to blast her! Or perhaps punch her, but same result. (NR/DP) 4.5-2 Jesse
Olympus 1-6! Claire unleashes a veritable storm of sharp things, but they are unable to affect the once-more ghostly Jesse! (FWB/GF) 5-2 Jesse

((Spell .def. Claire Farron, 5-2 in 6))

Olympus 2-1! The Archmage unleashes a sorcerous bolt, but Jesse's rain of destruction wins out this round! (MB/MS) 1-0 Jesse
Olympus 2-2! Jesse weaves a spectacular spell of protection -- but Claire's cold blast puts more than a few cracks in it! (AB/FSH) 1-.5 Jesse
Olympus 2-3! Once more does Jesse try to drop the skies on the Archmage -- who gives her a healthy dose of Celestial power in reply! (EF/MS) 1.5-1 Claire
Olympus 2-4! The Archmage unleashes the power of her mind, but Jesse manages to get her solid protection in place! (FMW/FSH) 2-1.5 Jesse
Olympus 2-5! Claire calls up the power of Fire to protect herself, but some of Jesse's rain of destruction breaks through! (IM/MS) 2.5-1.5 Jesse
Olympus 2-6! Jesse retreats once more to the realm of spirits - Claire heads that way too! (FGF/FGF) 2.5-1.5 Jesse
Olympus 2-7! Jesse tries her best to scare the Archmage! The Archmage decides to send a hail of sharp things to halt the attempt! (FWB/FT) 3-2.5 Claire
Olympus 2-9! Jesse tries to shield herself up, but it offers little protection against Claire's blast of cold power! (AB/SH) 3.5-3.5
Olympus 2-10! Claire takes a trip to the spirit world to attempt to avoid danger, but Jesse's sorcerous bolt finds her nonetheless! (GF/MB) 4.5-3.5 Jesse
Olympus 2-11! Did Jesse do it? Or did Claire tie things up...?
Neither! They both get mental on each other, and the duel continues! (MW/MW) 4.5-3.5 Jesse
Olympus 2-12! Jesse puts up an armoring spell, but Claire's fearful sending - touching? - manages to get through, just a little! (FT/AR) 4.5-4 Jesse
Olympus 2-13! Jesse's bringing down her rain of dectruction upon the Archmage! The Archmage is not where Jesse presumed her to be, however! (DP/MS) 4.5-4.5
Olympus 2-14! Claire sends something sharp toward Jesse - who sends a sorcerous bolt to halt it! (WB/MB) 5-4.5 Jesse
Olympus 2-15! Claire's displacement cannot get her out of range of Jesse's noxious odors! (DP/FF) 6-4.5 Jesse

((Spell .def. Claire Farron, 6-4.5 in 15))
And so, in two duels, Jesse defeated the reigning Archmage, Claire Farron, to earn the right to hold the Citadel of Stars! Well-reigned, Claire, and well won, Jesse!

And may the gods have mercy on us all.

Your Archmage is here! I expect to be addressed as such. Any who do not call me Archmage are disrespectful of the title that so many wish to hold! I do hope Twilight Isle is interesting this coming Tuesday!

Kyah-ha-ha~!

Now that the Isle isn't just tedious old stodgy-bodies I may have to visit more!

I look forward to your reign, Archmage!

I'm actually really the only 'tedious old stodgy-body' on the Isle as far as Keepers go, dear Xanthippe. Please, do visit the Isle - clearly, we take anybody, no questions asked. Watch out for rampaging skeledogs, though!

Archmage Bestie,

Congratulations on your victory! I knew you could do it, even though I was not there to support you, I was there in spirit I assure you. Do I not call you President anymore, though? Or, is it now President Archmage or Archmage President? I basically need to know how you wish to be styled seeing as you have now been crowned the greatest magic user this miserable armpit of a town has ever known.

I'm so excited over this that I bought this pretty purple dress for your coronation party! Using Gren's credit card, of course. I was able to successfully get the lady on the phone to up that annoying credit limit we talked about and now I have pretty much free reign to buy whatever my heart desires.

So, I got you three Iron Maidens to store your enemies in until such a time as you wish to magically dispatch them. I think they will go really well with your decor.

Oh...right, about the party, if you don't mind could you not schedule it on a Tuesday, please? Reason being is that while I was shopping for the dress and the interrogation tools (you have GOT to see the dunking chair I got, it has spikes! Cool, right?) I also signed Anpu and I up for Tai Chi classes. Mousy had taught me all about it so I thought that was something we should do as a couple now that we're all official and he's relaxed his stance on Egyptian-only activities.

We're going skiing next month, but don't tell him because I want it to be a surprise! I just haven't had time to run it by him yet. I think he's going to be ecstatic! Every FOURTH Tuesday, however, we can bring a friend for free, so I hope you can drop by if you're not busy. If you show up on another night we're not there, just tell them to bill it to Gren's account. He's got the Super Duper Grand Tai Chi Master level account and it was ONLY four thousand gold a month!

Which, if you ask me, is a steal!

I guess you can tell me next time I see you what to call you because I have to go now.

There was an accident with a bus that I have to talk to some nice man about. I think that's what they call them. It's the big things on wheels that hold lots of people and it carries them from one destination to another? You know because they're evolutionally stunted and can't teleport like you and I?

Yeah, well, apparently when one flips over in a busy intersection, killing everyone inside, and you're the only one around who is virtually unscathed, holding a sledgehammer and have a reputation for being in the WRONG place at the WRONG time, such as I ALWAYS am, they automatically think you did it.

So I need to set them straight on that because tonight's the night I go for my fangi-mani-pedi and if I'm late, I'll be so upset.

Okay, well bye!

- Grace


P.S. If you talk to your husband Deathlord, ask him if he wants to go out on a double date with Anpu and I to the movies! I hear there is this critically acclaimed romantic comedy playing, called "The Road," and I really want to see it. I hope you do too.

I'm pretty sure we called it 'The Prophecy class' when I was a younger...
