Overlord Grant Challenge - Old Market

Post by Nat Candle » Wed Oct 26, 2016 10:12 pm

While I realize that a new Overlord should be made official some time here in the near future (and many congratulations on that, Miss Ravenlock), there were certain caveats that Miss Farron placed on the offer of the grant in our painfully short conversation. I still feel honor bound to have my decision reflect that understanding even if alignments have changed since then or soon will.

Of those who were renegade to her, I still have a healthy respect and loyalty to Sabine for her good treatment of me as her Squire.

With that said, it feels both fair and sporting to seek a challenge for the one barony that has gone longest without a challenge or defense.

I challenge for Old Market.

Kids of Summer Foundation representative Gillian verch Madyn tacked up the following missive:

To Nat Candle,

On behalf of Baroness Lirssa al Amat, congratulations on the Overlord Grant! While the Baroness is unavoidably detained, the Foundation maintains every confidence that she will return, and that she will be delighted to meet you for the challenge.

We appreciate your understanding in this matter.

Sincerely,

Kids of Summer Foundation Board


((Due to current storylines, Lirssa is not available to accept this IC, however the challenge is accepted, and I am confident timelines will be resolved to fulfill this challenge. If Nat would contact me via PMs, we’ll work out the schedule! Cheers! ))

Declining any assistance from the Overlord, Baron of Old Market, Lirssa al Amat chose to defend her title from Nat Candle's challenge in one fight!

Code: Select all

Ring Old Market or Bust, Rd 1: The baroness is coming in low and finding pay dirt, but Nat is making progress too finding an opening up high! (LC/HC) 1 All

Ring Old Market or Bust, Rd 2: Lirssa's running with an outstanding defense, but Nat's got the moves to elude her long enough to land a strike! (FCP/FSS) 1-2 Nat

Ring Old Market or Bust, Rd 3: Nat is heading up high, but that leaves a wide open target for Lirssa! All tied up! (TH/HC) 2 All

Ring Old Market or Bust, Rd 4: Nat keeps his head on straight and avoids a thwack from the Baron! (FLP/FDU) 2-3 Nat

Ring Old Market or Bust, Rd 5: Nat wants to press his luck, or maybe keep from getting bloodied, but Lirssa says NO THANK YOU (FSS/TH) 3 All

Ring Old Market or Bust, Rd 6: Nat is trying to recover with a low strike, but so is Lirssa!  Neither find the way forward and we go to the next round still tied! (LC/LC) 3 All

Ring Old Market or Bust, Rd 7: Both our fighters are trying to find the go-ahead here!  The Baron comes after Nat!  But his fancy footwork saves him the strike and gives him time to find an opening of his own!  Nat is at matchpoint! (TH/FSS) 3-4 Nat

Ring Old Market or Bust, Rd 8: Nat's trying to secure the barony at Lirssa's ankles, but she's down there too, and they both get a shot to try again! (LC/LC) 3-4 Nat

Ring Old Market or Bust, Rd 9: Nat is looking out for his head again and inching towards taking the barony! (FLP/DU) 3-4.5 Nat

Ring Old Market or Bust, Rd 10: Nat is trying to end this but Lirssa didn't get the barony for nothing! (SS/TH) 3.5-4.5 Nat

Ring Old Market or Bust, Rd 11: Nat is setting up a block, but ohmygod, he's blocking low and Lirssa's getting right on over it to tie this thing back up! AND THAT'S SUDDEN DEATH!!! (HC/CP) 4.5 All

Ring Old Market or Bust, Rd 12: Lirssa's looking out for a direct attack, and Nat is putting his speed to work dodging an attack that isn't coming!  We are still at SUDDEN DEATH! (SH/SS) 4.5 All

Ring Old Market or Bust, Rd 13: Nat re-engaging offensive mode, but Lirssa is right there with the block! She is inching towards defending her barony and taking her first lead of the night! (CP/LC) 5-4.5 Lirssa

Ring Old Market or Bust, Rd 14: Nat is looking out for his ankles, but Lirssa dances aside to find her path to victory!  LIRSSA sucessfully defends and remains BARON OF OLD MARKET!  (SS/CP) 5.5-4.5 Lirssa

DUEL Eden: ((Ring Old Market or Bust FINAL: Lirssa Sarengrave .def. Candle, 5.5-4.5 in 14 rounds DoS))
In an extremely exciting 14 rounds that had everyone on the edge of their seats, Lirssa al Amat successfully defended her barony for the first time, and remains Baron of Old Market!

Congratulations Lirssa, and well-tried Nat!
