2020 Madness Payouts
by: Kalamere - April 24th, 2020 - 09:17am

With the final completed, the time has come for me to part with a chunk of the silver collected. Always a sad time of year for me.

Nobody in the 1k pool had the wisdow to see either Lilith or Ebon winning this thing, so there was really no impact to the final results. I certainly did benefit from Lilith’s perforance through the rest of the tournament though and take the top prize with a ton of help from her. Lil, stop by The Line at some point for a free bottle of something and a bit of coin to wager with as my thanks!

1,000 silver pool finishers:
1.) Kalamere – 15,500 silver
2.) Grak – 9,300 silver
3.) Matt Simon – 6,200 silver

Lilith Takes the Crown!
by: Kalamere - April 24th, 2020 - 08:56am

In a crazy year of madness that sees TWO double digit seeds facing off in the final match, it was Lilith Anderson who walked away as the 2020 Madness Champion last night. What’s interesting is that there were SO many upsets this year that the only time Lilith actually faced a duelist with a one digit seeding was in the first round when she beat #2, Gloria Blaze. After that it was 10 seed Bile, 14 seed Conner, 13 seed Doran and finally 10 seed from the South, Ebon.

For his part in this, Ebon had a much more difficult path to the final. After beating the #7 seed Alasdair in round one, he got off easier in round two by facing Xiao (15) who had been kind enough to take out #2 Myria Graziano   . . .

How You Betting? – Madness FINALS
by: Conner Reid - April 23rd, 2020 - 05:14am

After a little disagreement with management, we’re back, lads and lasses, to give you Conner Reid’s best take on the Madness Finals scheduled for this Thursday night!

We’ll take a quick look back at how we got here and then preview the finals!

Falessan Division Champion: (15) Lilith Anderson

Starting this here tournament as nearly a bottom seed, Lilith Anderson has cut her way through the competition to secure her spot in the finals, reminding us all that your seeding be just a number.

She began by knocking out Gloria Blaze, and immediately crushed the hopes and dreams of a large pool of bracket bettors who had picked Blaze to win-it-all. Lilith’s fi   . . .

How You Betting? – Madness Round 3
by: Conner Reid - April 3rd, 2020 - 08:36pm

You all still here?

Lords know why I still be working after the piss poor showing I be making. But oy. Iffin you’re still reading, I’m still writing.

Here we go, mates. Round 3.

Falessan Division

(9) Anubis Karos vs. (13) Doran Ilnaren

Doran be cutting a swath through some of the tournament’s youngest competitors, felling Maggie Harker and Amaris Silhaeven in the last round. While they be young, they not be easy, and both were impressive wins. Still, Anubis will be his most challenging opponent yet.

Time spent on the bench don’t seem to have had any effect on the Egyptian’s Madness-game, making work of Outback-all-sta   . . .

How You Betting? – Madness Edition – Round 2
by: Conner Reid - March 24th, 2020 - 08:55pm

It was a tough first round for half of our fighters—and maybe an even tougher first round for anyone who followed the betting recommendations of this here column. And while that lovely blue-haired lass, Sapphire, has taken the lead by a point in the brackets, in the least, mine still has a fair shot at overtaking with two-more possible points. Eh?

Well, despite last week’s poor performance, this here columnist has yet to be sacked. So let’s break down the next round!

Falessan Division

(1) Matthew Simon vs. (9) Anubis Karos

Don’t know what witch Matt Simon paid to help him pass through the first round without a fight, but here   . . .

Too Blue: Madness 2020 – Round 2
by: Jewell Ravenlock - March 23rd, 2020 - 12:01pm

[Transcript from Too Blue: Madness 2020 Edition (Round 2) 3.23.2020 10:00]

Sapphire: Good morning RhyDin! It is I, your favorite blue haired maven of the dueling world, here to bring you what’s what in Madness 2020. While I only predicted seven out of the sixteen fights right, and it would have been eight if Myria didn’t epic fumble, so did Conner Reid. So we’re both tied for how awesome we are and our prophetic battle goes into Round 2 along with the rest of Madness.

And here to help me get an edge on that Reid fellow is the fabulous Baroness of Cadentia, the Witchiest Witch, and my sister–Mallory Maeda!

Mallory: Go   . . .

Round 1 All Wrapped Up
by: Kalamere - March 23rd, 2020 - 11:55am

And that’s when everything went up in flames…

Ok, two duels to recap. One which I somehow missed from last week in the Outback (the spectacle of Runt and Crunchem left me blind to other events!) and then last night’s fiasco.

Going back a bit in time, we have Kheldar (8) and Anubis (9) looking to stab each other last Wednesday. The Egyptian hasn’t been around in a dog’s age, but those hempan sandals seemed to still know the way. His daggers looked to be plenty sharp as well. Kheldar was the first to move into a lead, with a low slice in round 2 to go up 2-1, but it was short lived. By round   . . .

Catching Up On Round 1
by: Kalamere - March 22nd, 2020 - 01:26pm

There have been eight duels fought since my last update, leaving only 2 remaining before the first round completes. With so much to cover, we’re going to have to do this in short form. Hey, I’m a busy guy, I’ve got other things to do!

On Wednesday the action moved over to the Outback for the night, and hosted one of the premier first round matchups: Runt (6) vs Crunchem (11). Everyone was looking forward to watching this one, though mostly from a distance. Giant vs Ogre… it’s unwise to get too close. The Outback itself shook and shimmied as these two clobbered on each other for 10 rounds. Runt went for a risky slash at the end and   . . .
