The Arena

*NEW:* Rules amendments added in red, including dice rolls.

The audience shoots to their feet and roars as you step onto the warm sand of the arena. The flags flutter overhead as you see a thousand people watching you. This is your moment to show your skills as a pupil of the fabled Academy of Arcane Arts. Now it’s only a question of how you will perform . . .

Welcome to The Arena! This is where you can test your mettle against fellow academy pupils. The rules are as follows:

  1. Keep it clean and respectful. An academy pupil treats his opponents with honor, giving the standard courtesies. That of course includes a bow before and after a fight, as well as showing one’s stripes.
  2. Pupils are expected to use the full trigger phrase of the spell they are casting, as well as name of the spell. Example: “I slap my wrists together with the First Offensive, shouting, Annihilo!”
  3. All offensive spells shall be cast feathered, meaning at diminished strength. This is practice dueling only!
  4. Choose a time to duel, being mindful of time zones.
  5. Choose a nickname when in the arena. Augum, for example, would be called Augum “The Hood” Stone.
  6. Choose an element. Available elements are: fire, earth, water, air, lightning, ice (healers do not duel, and necromancy will not be an option at this time).
  7. Agree on degree level for all contestants prior to the duel. Available degrees are 1 to 9. This matters because you will not be allowed to cast spells of higher degree (for the purpose of simplicity we will not account for people training beyond their degree).
  8. Dice rolls: Roll a twenty-sided dice (“D20”) to cast a spell/strike an opponent. Add your degree level to the roll. A roll of 14 or higher hits. If the opponent chooses to dodge or parry, they must roll higher than you (they too will include their degree bonus). Tie rolls go to defender. Centarro adds +4 to all rolls. Shields add +2 to all defensive rolls. Elemental Armor allows for two free hits before destruction. Feel free to use online dice rollers like this one.
  9. Example: A 4th degree warlock smacks their wrists together, incanting, “Annihilo!” He/she then rolls a D20, getting a 10. They then add their degree, scoring a total of 14, which would strike. But their 2nd degree opponent chooses to block with a summoned shield. They roll a D20, getting an 9. Adding their degree and the shield bonus, their total is 13, which means they failed to raise their shield in time and the First Offensive struck true, scoring one point for the caster.
  10. GOLD EARNINGS: Each duel participant receives 5 crowns, regardless of who wins. The crowns must be honestly tabulated at home using the honor system, but you may appoint someone among you to hold the title of “Treasurer”. It will be that person’s responsibility to keep tabs on everyone’s earnings.

    The earnings can be used to purchase the following:

    5 crowns – A Potion of Trickery that, when consumed, takes away an opponent’s point. Costs one action to perform. Can only be consumed mid duel.
    25 crowns – A better quality practice weapon, earning +1 on all strike rolls when using it.

    35 crowns – Ring of Tempering: reduces all non-spell physical strike attack rolls by 1
    35 crowns – Ring of Striking: adds +1 to all physical attack rolls (non-spell attacks)
    35 crowns – Ring of Absorption: adds +1 to all defensive rolls against mind attack spells
    35 crowns – Ring of Consternation: opponent suffers -1 on all mind attack defensive rolls
    40 crowns – Circlet of Luck: +3 on all “Rolls to Succeed” (see below)
    40 crowns – Circlet of Retrial: Once per duel, you may ask for a re-roll of any one single roll
    50 crowns – A shimmering elemental robe that penalizes all castings cast against the wearer, endowing a -2 penalty on all opponent’s strike rolls (physical offensive spells only, not mind spells).
    100 crowns – The purchase of an arcane Dreadnought weapon of your choosing (can be an axe/sword/bow/staff etc). You also get to name it. +3 on all strike rolls, and has the ability to cast First Offensive through the weapon (for 3rd degree+ only).
    Author’s request 1: Come up with a list of items. Have Attendant Atticus email them to me. Feel free to suggest amendments to the above too.
    Author request 2: what sort of mechanics would you like introduced for penetrating a shield / Mind Armor / Elemental Armor due to strong attacks? And how would attacking using a fist / foot factor? Think it over/playtest some ideas, and get back to me in due course with specific mechanics.
    Author request 3: What sort of mechanic would you like to introduce that is house-specific? Perhaps certain off-the-books spells/abilities only available to those houses?
  11. RULES CLARIFICATION: Second Offensives (always cast tempered) result in two points being awarded if both strike true. Chances of both striking are as follows: should attempted defenses fail, defender rolls a D6. If it is 1-4, the attack is successful and attacker is awarded 2 points. If it is a 5 or 6 defender manages to sustain one of the two attacks, but dodges the other (imagine one hitting a leg and the other the ground, or one the torso and the other zipping underneath an arm, etc).
  12. RULES CLARIFICATION: Strength: Should a physical attack be successful under the influence of Strength, the attacker is awarded one extra point. Further, all non-attack Strength attempts that relate (like flipping someone, lifting something, etc) using dice rolls gain an additional +4 on any D20 “Rolls to succeed” attempt rolls.
  13. RULES ADDITION: D20 “Rolls to succeed“: Any player may use an attack to attempt something not as yet discussed. At that point, the player is asked to honestly self-assess the difficulty of accomplishing the feat, and roll a D20. For an easy feat, they must score a 10 or higher. For a moderate feat, 14 or higher. For a difficult feat, 18 or higher. A successful moderate feat earns the attemptee one extra crown at the end of the match. A successful difficult feat earns them an extra two crowns! [Author asks the players to play test this and “feel” it out for balance issues]
  14. 2 ON 2 DUELS: You may now duel each other in team pairs! All participants will get an automatic 8 crowns per person. Initiative is rolled each round using a D20 (twenty-sided die). To cut down on text-based messages, this may be accomplished by the master of ceremonies/appointed score keeper/one of the participants. Highest goes first, with ties going to the person with more points that round. If a tie still remains, those involved in the tie are to each roll a D20 until one gets higher than the other. Further, the winning team is each awarded two extra crowns per person. [Author asks the players to playtest 2 on 2 and get back to him (perhaps via Attendant Atticus) on how to improve the mechanics].
  15. [OPTIONAL CHALLENGE]: Start dueling at 1st degree. After every duel, you graduate one degree. When you hit the 10th, you can choose any degree (between 1-9) to duel with. A request from the author: if the community comes up with a rank title for those who complete this challenge, have Attendant Atticus email me with the resultant decision and I will amend the rule here to make it official, allowing for people to use the rank in their name.
  16. Agree who goes first. Take turns. You can roll a dice to add randomness.
  17. You can cast one spell per text post. The person reacting MUST do the following however: react to the spell cast at them, and cast a counterspell / make an action.
  18. Possible actions:
    – Cast a spell, such as summoning a shield or weapon, summon elemental armor, Disarm, a First Offensive (feathered of course), etc. etc.
    – Block with shield / parry with practice weapon (practice weapons can be retrieved telekinetically from the carts that are wheeled out prior to each duel, costing one action). Weapon classes: spear, sword (short/long), dagger, axe, halberd, club, bow & quiver (3 arrows in quiver allowed max), any other reasonable weapon you can imagine.
    – Move to engage opponent in hand-to-hand combat (or with weapons)
    – Move away from approaching opponent
    – Dodge / duck / jump over the spell / twirl aside / (the audience roars for greater creativity!) etc.
    – Slash / thrust / slice / jab with weapon (etc). Can also throw the weapon.
    – Telekinetically bend the arc of an arrow / fireball / thrown object. Available only to 5th degrees and up.
    – Battle ‘port away (available only to 9th degrees and up)
    – Reflect a spell using Mirror of the Dragon (available only to aspirants who have passed the Arcaner trials and have subsequently gone through the training. Will flesh out rules in due course).
  19. [OPTIONAL RULE] You can use up to two dodges per battle, so choose wisely. After your dodges have been used up, the opponent’s spells strike true (as long as they roll a 14).
  20. Each opponent can withstand one hit to their Mind Armor before future spells blow through. At that point, the defender must roll a six-sided dice (known as a “D6”) Alternately, the Master of Ceremonies can be the dice roller. Results as follows:

    -A roll of 1 means the attack is successful and does full damage to the mind (1 point awarded, combatant must role-play how it affects them). So if it’s a Sleep spell, the person struck is put to sleep and the duel is over then and there.
    -A roll of 2 means the attack is somewhat successful and does half damage to the mind (1 point awarded, combatant must role-play how it affects them)
    -A roll of 3 means the attack is a partial glancing blow, and does no damage, but a quarter of the effect is felt by the person sustaining the attack (no point awarded).
    -A roll of 4 means the spell crumpled against the pupil’s Mind Armor (no effect/damage)
    -A roll of 5 means the spell crumpled against the pupil’s Mind Armor (no effect/damage)
    -A roll of 6 means the spell crumpled against the pupil’s Mind Armor (no effect/damage)

    All pupils are expected to report their rolls honestly. That is the way of honor that all pupils who hope to last in the academy shall obey. And losing a duel can be just as fun as winning one. After all, everyone learns from a loss and becomes slightly better not just as a pupil, but as a combatant. Losing builds characters more than winning.
  21. First to three solid hits wins! (This will keep the duels shorter). [OPTIONAL RULE:If no one is waiting in the wings to duel, both opponents can duel to five points]. But if a pupil believes he has been outmaneuvered in an incredible fashion (let’s say they believe their opponent was being particularly imaginative with their attack) then that pupil may do the honorable thing and bend the knee.
  22. For added fun, a third person can play the role of the Master of Ceremonies (Think Lucca Giovanni from the book Clash). This person’s sole job is to dramatize the events before them. They will also be the judge of the tournament, assigning points, making rules calls, etc.
  23. You’re welcome to suggest rules / amendments below. Due to the limitations of a text-based duel in this site, we will all have to be a little patient and forgiving in how things flow. A pupil is expected to do their best and to use their imaginations, as they are the most potent weapons they have. Good luck to all combatants!

The scene: The crowd stirs anxiously as the combatants meet in the center of the sandy arena. They are bare of foot and wearing the color of their respective degree. It is a [Master of Ceremonies chooses weather] day, and people have paid good money to see quality practice duels. In attendance we have academy arcanists, always keen to see how students are progressing. We have two high-degree healers as well, eager to help combatants injured in the fray [Master of Ceremonies may role-play what they do]. And of course, we have representative heralds from the Blackhaven Herald, the Antioc Herald, and the Academy Herald (Cry Slimwealth may be in attendance). And they like to gossip.

The heralds have been seen chatting together, in fact. Speculation has been mounting on whether or not everyone would get a glimpse of the fabled trio, who have been said to be interested in the events. Everyone is hoping to get a visit from one of them, although they are quite busy people these days guarding the kingdom. Perhaps in due course . . .

    Age: 16

    Degree: 9th degree warlock

    Element: Ice

    Birthdate: November 16th

    Personality: Friendly, loyal, hard working.

    History: My parents were slaughtered by the legion

  2. Ok Attendant, and that was a looooonng break.

    I let the hit thunk into my lightning armor and incant “Virtus vis viray!” and punch your guts. I rolled a 14, so that’s 27 (I cast Centarro earlier).

    1. I rolled 8 so 17 it hits I use my armor then I run and punch you in the face then twitch my ringer and a wooden club comes at you I roll a 17 for the punch so 26 and a YES A natural 20 so 29 for the club

      Also quick check what’s the score

      1. Kinda unsure, think it’s 1-0.

        I rolled a 5 and 12, so the punch shatters my armor, then the club hits me whilst exposed. (1-1) I then grapple you and try to bring you to the ground, also incanting “SHYNEO” and trying to shock you. Totals: 25 Grapple, 28 Shock.

      2. Uh I rolled at a sixteen so 25 it’s a tie and a natural 20 so I get away from the shock but because of the tie I’m unsure for the grappling.Anyway I then use telekinesis with the fallen club and then try to attack with my spear for the club I roll a 10 so 19 and for the spear I rolled a 3 so it does nothing.

      3. I think ties would work like partial hits, but no point.

        Regardless, I kick your face and use you as a springboard (sorry, gotta hurt) to jump back. In midair, I slap my wrists together and yell “Annihilo bato!”
        Kick: 19, now 32. Second Offensive: 15, now 28.

      4. For the kick it would be impossible to beat,so I didn’t roll for the kick however the second offensive I rolled a thirteen so I use up the rest of my armor the I do duel telekineses with the club and a wooden sword at you I roll a 18 for the club and a 6 for the sword so 27 and 15 so the sword does nothing.then I try to pierce your right leg with my Icey spear for a roll of 20 so 29

      5. I rolled a 15 and 8, so 27 (tie) and 21 (dodge), so I duck down but the club scratches my shoulder. Then a 5, or 18, for the spear. The spear sinks into my thigh and I use my Strength induced muscles to snap it in half, taking the pointed end and trying to stab you before it disappears. That’s a 16, so 29. I then say, “voidus occa” with a hooked fingers gesture, rolling a 12 so 25.

        1-1

    2. I’ll wait for Devon’s opinion,maybe I should reroll but get a plus two bonus as it was a high number but I don’t know.

      1. Ok John. We’d do that now, but it’s way to late. Maybe Mr. Bronny will add that to the rules.

    3. im confused you tried to dodge you rolled a 21 so the club hit,then the spear hit you that would make me at either 3 or 2 points also I roll a 1 so the spear hits??? Then the blind spell I use one of my free hits,then I cast summon minor wall and make it curved around me but as it’s starting to form,I Pick up the fallen club and the wooden sword and throw the club at you for a roll of 5 so nothing happens then I run and jump into the circlulure enclosure of ice mind that it it 1 1/2 feet thick so you couldn’t brake it also it’s 6 feet thick.

      1. Oh, yeah it’s 2-1, but now 2-2 I guess,

        I snap “Impetus Paragro” and appear next to you, ramming my fist into your face with a 12, total 25, and run off.

    4. I got a 25 including my degreethen I summon my elemental armor and hit you with a wooden sword the roll. was a 15 so 24

      1. I rolled a 12, so a narrow escape with 25. Then I again incant “Voidus occa!” and kick your chest. 15, now 28, for Blind. 5, now 18, for the kick.

      2. I ran to hit you but I barely had to move due to the circle of ice

      3. I rolled a 19 for the blindness so it barely hits me so I use my last saving thing then I rolled a 10 so 19 then I cast centarro and try to hit you with the sword for a roll of 4 so 15 then I try to kick you with a roll of 10 so 21.

      4. 7 and 15, so 20 and 28. I duck under the sword and jump aside. Then I incant “Voidus occa” and make a roundhouse kick. Total 27 for Blind and 20 for the kick.

  3. Alex “The Cold” Runi

    Age: 15

    Degree: 7th degree warlock

    Element: Unknown to everyone except him and his mentor.

    Birth Place and Date: Ley, July 7th

    Personality: Cold and unforgiving, extremely hard to connect with him. He tries to avoid anyone and sets up an emotional barrier around himself. The people around him are usually surprised by his combination of wild nature and excellent planning.

    History: Little is known of Alex’s parents, but what is know is that they went to Ley in search of knowledge and came back years later with a young boy named Alex Runi. Alex’s parents shed little light on the pregnancy in Ley until they day they died. That day Alex’s parents told Alex that during the time in Ley, his mother entered a stage of sudden pregnancy and had Alex a few days later. Alex showed his first sign of Arcanery at age 10 and learned his first degree wild at age 11. Alex was a quick learner, but learning wild takes time so Alex did not receive his second degree until Age 13. As Alex often travels to and back from Ley in order to learn Ley spells, the Leyans have offered to be Alex’s mentor. At after earning his second degree, Alex had enough of learning wild and accepted a mentor, but as Alex was secretive of many things, he convinced his mentor to never tell anyone of his element until he was ready. At age 15, under the guidance of the Leyans, Alex was a 7th degree warlock, though he knew many spells above 7th degree and was ahead in strength for all his spells. And he was ready to enter the Arcaner trials. But Alex surprised everyone around him but suggesting that he wait until he is 10th degree. At the moment, Alex is training on his mental armor to strengthen it past 14th degree.

      1. Hello! Looking forward to dueling you sometime!
        Since you didn’t say your element… let me guess… ice?

      2. I thought he’s the cold because he is cold.Look what it says right before his Bio. Thats what i meant.

    1. Hello John!!! Always nice to see new people get on. Love your backstory, quite a bit of mystery in there. I cant currently duel, but I’m excited to see how you do in the famous arena of antioc!!! Good luck and may the odds be ever in your favor!!

    2. Hello John, and very interesting back story. Very mysterious in the fact that he was able to get to Ley. Cant wait to figure out what your element is :)

    3. Ahhhh! So many new people with all different elements. This is going to be very interesting as there will be more duels now :)

  4. I have invinted a new combo! It is INSNLY pwerful. And only first degrre. Whenever i use it i will give more details.

  5. Ok gonna add my (Fake) Last name. Flametouch. Its a family name that comes down for generations.

  6. A Present Day Continuation of the Bio of Adriticus “The Vortex” Valdwen:
    One day Adriticus got a letter, within which was an anonymous challenge for a duel to the death. He decided to accept the duel and started girding himself for what could possibly be one of the biggest fights of his life. When the time came, he walked to the arena and registered in. Adriticus walked out onto the arena floor, noting the slight breeze and fluffy clouds above. He noted the large crowd, not able to make out even one face. The ground rumbled with the roar of the crowd, and than confused silence. Adriticus looked about, searching for the source, when he realized that his opponent had come out. His opponent was someone he hadn’t seen in over 4 years, but had thought about every day of his life. His opponent was none other than his twin, aggressive and straight to the point. He had never told anyone of his twin, the thought too painful. His breath caught in his throat while his twin glared at him. He could barely hear Giovanni, the master of ceremonies, reading off the rules. Giovanni looked between the two of them, hesitated, then yelled one word.

    1. A Present Day Continuation of the Bio of Daveed “Lightning Strike” Valdwen: Daveed decided the defeat had to be public. However, he realized that his twin would never duel him voluntarily, so he decided to write an anonymous letter in order to draw him out. He sent the letter, and later heard that his twin had accepted the duel and was now training. So Daveed followed. Soon the day came to prove himself a true Valdwen. He walked out into the arena filled with roaring civilians awaiting the death of the loser. Each boom of the drum took him back to his childhood, reminding him of the abu-NO. It was training. Necessary training. It made him strong. As Daveed walked out, he noted his surroundings, as he always did before a duel. He noted the rumbling crowd, and how it abruptly cut off in confusion, the realization that these two were at the very least related hitting them. Most rewarding was the look of confusion and the consecutive look of recognition that flitted across his twin’s face. Daveed felt something stir inside him, something he had only felt about arcaneology. It was such a bizarre concept for him, the only way to understand it was to stop it. He could barely listen as Giovanni stated the rules, hesitated, and then said one final word.

  7. Name: Daveed ”Lightning Strike” Valdwen

    Appearance: tall, slightly tanned (white), male, currently 16, 8th degree studying 9th, brown hair, green eyes.

    Knowledge: 8th degree training on 9th, rather sizeable amount of knowledge on arcaneology for on 8th degree, dueling strategy.

    Character: exotic, wild, explicit, serious, a fighter, a yearning for knowledge that is suppressed by his family, low self-confidence

    History: Daveed Valdwen was born into a fierce family of lightning warlocks, so independent that they refused to live in their kingdoms, Tiberras, cities and villages. This family was infused with wildness brought on by it’s rich lightning element, and was very abusive to each other. Because of the wild tendencies of the lightning element, the family was very strict with arcanery, requiring every child be an advanced dueler and they are of the lightning element.
    Daveed acquired his arcane talent at around the age of 12, and after a couple weeks of studying, started working on his elemental spell. To his great relief, he was indeed of the lightning element. However, his twin did not show the lightning element. Daveed’s parents were very angry, and the conflict ended with his twin being banished. This of course ripped Daveed’s heart in two, but this was quickly stomped out by his cruel and abusive family.
    Daveed continues on in life, rapidly advancing through the degrees as was usual in his family. There was much talent in his family, but that talent had corrupted his family (including himself) and raised they’re pride to obscene levels. His family conditioned him to there way of life, and to view the world as they did. So when Daveed started showing great interests in arcaneology, his family quickly beat it out of him.
    Or so they thought. Daveed quietly pursued his study at any time possible, using the excuse of improving his dueling skills in order to acquire study material. He absorbed anything he could get his hands on, and quickly became the leading knowledge of arcanery in his family. He would stay up late studying, and he always had a thirst to figure out how it all worked.
    In this family, when one turns 16 they are required to go on a quest. Daveed’s quest was the hardest ever, but that is because his family expected him to be the greatest of them even as they beat him raw. So, when Daveed turned 16, and had trained enough in teleport, he was sent to track down his twin brother and dispose of him. So he followed the footsteps his twin had taken 4 years ago.
    These footsteps led him, surprisingly, to a Solian academy.

    1. Welcome to the Arena! Amazing backstory and cliffhanger lol. All that dueling skill will come in use here.

  8. I dunno if I wanna do my own guild but I have a motto anyway. “Evading an attack is just good as any other defense.”

    1. I might make a house, I’m not sure yet. My motto would probably be something like “individuals create unity”. Idk, just a thought.

      Also, did anyone else notice the “perhaps in due course” at the end of the section where Mr, Bronny is creating the arena setting?

      1. Yea, Mr. Bronny Is prob gonna come onto the arean with the nickname “Augum “The Hood” Westwood” or whatever.

  9. My guild is called the Duelers Unite! Motto is Strength and speed is the key. The crest is a half blue half green that saye the motto.

  10. I rolled a 5, so that’s 18. I dodge your kick catlike (1-0). Then I slap my wrists together and incant “annihilo bato!” with a 7 so that’s 20. Than I do a drop-kick style high kick to your chin with 12 so that’s 25.

    1. I rolled a natural 20 I dodge by rolling to the ground and I jumped up and rolled an natural 18 so I dodged,then I cast summon elemental armor while invisioning pure clear ice climbing and covering my body.I then run towards you and jump mid jump I attempt to punch you I rolled a four so 13 doesn’t do a thing.Also on the matter of logistics uh when did you go to ley,to learn centarro.I just realized none of us should be able to cast it.

      1. I think that matter is overlooked because Mr. Bronny put it in the rules.

        I got a 3 so that’s 16. I jump aside and then cast “armari elementus totalus” and thick lightning coats me. The I knew your face with a total 24

      2. sorry busy week I rolled a seventeen,as i dodge the attack I cast summon weapon which is a spear and try to hit you right now I’m like three feet away.I rolled a 10 so 19.

  11. Name: Adriticus “The Vortex” Valdwen

    Appearance: tall, slightly tanned (white), male, currently 16, 8th degree studying 9th, brown hair, green eyes.

    Knowledge: 8th degree studying 9th. Given up much of written word/math/history studies in pursuit of quick advancement and startagem study.

    Character: Sarcastic, Slightly forgetful, generally a little too relaxed and tends to not take things as seriously as they should be taken, Very intelligent, Musician, Can be arrogant at times, Rather “gullible” or susceptible to other people’s beliefs. He uses his sarcasm to put up a wall about his past.

    History: Adriticus Valdwen was born to a family of fierce lightning warlocks in Tiberra in the country, as this family definitely did not enjoy being ruled. His family even dreamed about starting their own kingdom, ignoring the improbability of it lasting more than a day. Yes, Adriticus’s family was insane, driven mad by the influences of the lightning element and it’s wild tendencies. Adriticus had always been a little calmer than his family, and because of that he suffered much verbal and physical abuse. Needless to say, when Adriticus started his arcane training and developed tendencies in the element of the air, his family was not pleased.
    Adriticus first exhibited his standard arcane talent at age 12, as was usual for this family. He trained in his first degree for roughly two weeks before starting on his first elemental spell. However, when he was at last successful with the spell, it did not show up as crackling lightning but as a glowing swirling rush of wind around his palm. This of course stunned his family, and, when Adriticus refused to forsake the air element, they banished him from their family.
    Adriticus went to the tiberran capital in search of work and a mentor. He was able to attain enough money to take his first degree test and pass. Soon after, he got apprenticed to a 11th degree air warlock captain in the Tiberran army. From him Adriticus learned not only the arcane arts, rapidly advancing through 5 more degrees in 3 years with a focus on arcane combat, he also taught Adriticus discipline and order. At age 15, having just earned his 6th degree, Tiberra was invaded by the legion. Adriticus’s mentor was sent off to the front lines, and Adriticus followed as his squire.
    One day, during a fierce battle on the Tiberran front, Adriticus’s mentor was killed in a monstrous explosion. Adriticus was then captured after putting up a fierce defense. As he was being transported to Blackhaven, Adriticus managed to escape and snuck away. He traveled for days before he came upon some ruins in Ravenwood, close to Springthaw lake. There he rode out the legion war, becoming more Solian than Tiberran, though he still missed Tiberra and wished to travel back he knew it was impossible.
    He decided to go to the Solian Academy of Arcane Arts after the legion war, earning his 7th and 8th degrees. When the canterrans started taking warlocks to assist in digging out Orion, Adriticus was able to hide in a little-known classroom. Once he heard the sounds of battle in a distant hallway, particularly a cacophonous crack of thunder, he decided it was time to go help. He prowled the hallways, taking out any canterrans he could find. He was trapped in the academy with all of the other students when the dome went up and began training in teleport.
    He starved with Solian students. He suffered with Solian students. And like all of the other Solian students, he almost died. When they were freed and nourished back to health, he started training to fight the canterrans and push them out of what he now felt as his kingdom. Due to his intelligence and fierce dedication to the craft that had been pounded into him by his family, he was one of the few successful with the frenzy spell. So he fought in the battle of the Tallows.
    Now Adriticus is studying his 9th degree as the kingdoms recover from the war. He studies strategy along with his element, and yearns to prove himself as an officer in the slowly rebuilding Solian army. A new dream has been kindled as well, one he never saw himself doing until three heroes attempted it. Adriticus shoots to become an Arcaner, no matter how long it takes. It is his dream, and he will fight for it like he did his kingdom.

    Sorry it’s so long guys, got a little carried away :)
    Also I tried to make it as logical and fair as possible but if you see any errors let me know.

    1. Bruh, that puts my story line to shame. Scroll down for a little bit and you will see mine. But that story line is basically gone now as I started at 1st degree again due to new optional rules. Anyway, I’ve read through basically every comment and haven’t seen your name. Are you new?

      1. I’m not new. I haven’t talked on here much except for near the beginning, but I’ve been on this website a while. So my dueling character is new but I’m not

      1. Its okay. I am not mad. Though i understand your reaction couse of attendant. But were all good now, right Attendant?

      2. Er… I got upset when HE called me Karen. But now we made up.

      3. Thank you for understanding. Though it was a typo. I hope.

    2. Name:Attendant Olishia Cavanaugh

      Nickname:The frozen

      Age:17

      Degree:9

      Element Ice

      Parents:Presumed Deceased

      Home:Black Haven,Antioc Library room 208

      Knowledge:

      1. First, did you just forget to put name attendant? Second, why do you have 0 knowledge if your 9th degree ice?

  12. Idea! I think if you go higher than 25, exept for this duel since its in progress,It is unblockable.

  13. I calmly stroll into the center of the arena, despite my heart pounding with a thumps of the mighty drums. I tap my throat and whisper “amplifico” then roar “Come and get me, Olishia!” Then I bow and flare nine lightning rings upon your arrival. I then calmly incant “Centeratoraye xao xen!” then surge forth and try to grapple you (the thing where I lock my legs around your neck). I rolled a 14, so that’s 27? (that’s big)

    1. After I bow I do the calculations and then I do frenzy quickly then exit out of the spell once I moved then I kicked you in the stomach and rolled a 8 so a 17 that lands a hit score 1-1 also after this I’m doing the degree challenge 1-9 degree

      1. Rules 8/9 say that we counter roll. So you roll to try and best my attack roll, and I do the same to you.

      2. Ok your so lucky I rolled a 15 so 26 and you rolled a 27

    1. Yea, I’ll restart to 1st degree as well… Hey! Remember that whole story line I wrote about about everyone and me and Kaden getting to 5th degree. Yup, just threw that in the trash. Anyway I agree with Kaden on treasurer thingy. Sorry Attendant you already have a rank. Also, you literally get mentioned in the instructions of the main Discussion Page. You and Devon are like the main people here so both of you should have a ‘rank’.

      New Bio: (Joke)
      Aeris has been born. He has a mentor who teaches him first degree. The mentor dies in a legion raid. Aeris scouts about searching for someone to learn arcanery from. Being young and stupid he didn’t realize he could learn wild. He found his way to Antioc after the war and found Olishia Cavanaugh who was a attendant and the Antioc Library. He dreamt of working there and Olishia is helping his dreams come true by spending no time what-so-ever working with Aeris, leaving him at 1st degree.🙃

      1. Rude! First you say i am not main! I mean they are mainer(I dunno) but so am I! Plus you just basiccaly threw me in the trash!
        P.S. I am just joking.Mostly;).

      2. Ik sorry. As I put in the bio, (Joke) Mostly ;;)

      3. Yea sure. I would say what time but I guess we will just see when Einar and Olishia finish.

      4. Hope my part is a joke….Also I think right now the vote just Devon,Devon,Devon and Devon,Nathan and marek and his sister all have not voted.I voted for Devon by the way.

      5. That last sentence of the bio killed me hahahahah
        I’m working on a bio right now so I’ll publish that soon
        I’d probably vote for Devon too. I think both people would do great but just to spread the power a little bit I think Devon would be a more democratic choice.
        I probably won’t get too involved in these duels due to scheduling. Especially around the school year the times where I can actually get on and duel is very… sporadic(? I think that’s the right word). I do love watching you guys duel though, and the creativity is amazing. the Attendants’ spectral ‘port attack was… unique… However I don’t think you would have been able to teleport back out. Very creative though

      6. @Attendant yea it is just a joke because I can’t really make a good story line of you helping me because I’m still first after the reset lol.

  14. I vote Either Attendan or Devon as Treasurer. Cause Attendant is well Attendant. And Decon is DM.

      1. I bet you would both be very good! But i gotta give my vote to Devon actually. Because Atticus is an Attendant already. I feel like it would not be fair if you can be it too.

      2. Nice try!:) But no. You can not vote for your self. You can do me though!;)

  15. Ok Attendant. I stroll into the arena, bow deeply, and flash nine lightning rings. After that, I sprint forth and snap “Flustrato” while jiggling my hand. With the other hand, I ran it into your gut

    1. I’m going for a K.O let’s see I use one of my dodges for the mind attack then i stumble back from the hit and cast spectral teleport but inside of your body in that split second I pull on the first thing I see which is your heart so ya

      1. I… uh… think that would kill you. You’d appear inside me momentarily but still die like Malevalent. If not, these are practice duels and aren’t meant to kill.

      2. No she telaported in not not spectral also there are healers as well as I teleported inside of you not into you I had been studying the body for this technique as well.

      3. I’m not sure I understand, but regardless we aren’t supposed to kill in practice duels. How about a redo, this time not killing?

        Ironic, the only Ohmian (Ohmian?) is the one who kills.

      4. I double checked when bridge gets sabby they mention it’s an ohmish husky.

      5. Oh, Ohmish, got it. Ohmian sounded wrong on so many levels. I’ll make my move up top.

    2. My name messed up and in my first thing when I teleported I also bowed and flashed my rings

  16. Idea Devon. Maybe you should not start with the best dueler. You should work your skills. I have no doubt you will put on a fight(And i personally think you’ll win). But you need to earn some publicity. So if you win get MORE famous. Eh,eh?:)

    1. Huh? You mean I should duel some others before Attendant Atticus? Or am I misunderstanding. If so, yeah I’ll do that. See who else is available.

      1. Sorry for ignoring your advice Kaden. I was going to follow it, but then Attendant Atticus wanted to duel… Einar can’t back down.

  17. I realized something everyone! We should of done scores for attacks! A one was supposed to be score! I rolled 6 for BLOCK. But since Devon won the duel fair and square(Plus Definatly outsmarted me)i was just pointing that out for future duels.

  18. By the way you are a natural dueler Devon! And very creative too! How’d you come up with that Seal trick? I MUST KNOW YOUR SECRETS!:)

    1. Well, I’m quite honored Kaden. You put up quite the fight too!

      Anyways, my creativity comes from multiple things. I take inspiration from duels and fights in Mr. Bronny’s books (I planned something like Malevalent’s Teleport-suicide but safer with a weapon, didn’t use it though). I also was studying other duels before hand, seeing what y’all came up with yourselves. I take non-combative spells from the spell list also and think about obscure uses, such as I did with Seal. But my most effective no-longer-secret trick is to imagine the character I created and place him in duels. I know he’s creative and know what style he favors, but let him do all the work as I take note. If you don’t understand that, I can rephrase it.

      Yep, those are my secrets Kaden! Happy to help a fellow combatant.

      1. Devon would you be up for a duel,I got some secret ideas…

      2. Good game Also good techniques can’t wait to see what einar has in store for his next duel.

      3. Me too, Attendant. Right now, I believe he is sitting on horseback in the middle of nowhere, a book on arcanery and another on dueling open before him on the horse’s neck, as he sits in silence, contemplating revolutionary techniques.

        I believe Einar, in his love of battle, would be willing to ‘Port back to an arena to duel another tough combatant. (What time?)

      4. As of right now Olishia is taking a meditation retreat at ohm and is talking tom ning telepathically,I can duel tomorrow at like 12:30 but are we still fighting or not?

      5. Yeah sure, you’re Pacific right? If that’s so, we might end up finishing the duel later, but I’ll definitely be able.

      6. Actually my retreat just ended so I can do the battle I teleport into the arena and start meditating,using my knowledge I gained from the retreat.
        You choose who goes first ok

      7. A student of the art. Impressive. And a good dueler always studies other warlock’s duels. Well done, Devon. you have the spirit of a pupil of the craft.

  19. i rolled a six for block. you win, good game. If i was not parilized i would bow.

    1. Yes! That was my first duel, and first win! Good game.

      I flick my hand and say “Paralizo null,” then bow a deep bow and kill the Amplify spell that I had (didn’t write that in the beginning but it’s the arena) and shake your hand. “Good fight. You strong. Creative. Someday we do practice and talk strategy.”

      1. Thanks! You too! Gonna use the seal trick.Though it might be deffirent;).

      2. Yea that Seal trick was very creative. Also was that your first duel as Einar or your first duel in general?

  20. I roll to the side rolling a 2 getting a bit scraped giving you 1 point! The sword comes from behind you then i kick you in the stomach then slame my wrist yelling “Anihilo!”

    1. I rolled a 5 on the sword and a 1 (oof) on the First Offensive. So I twist away from the sword but it left me unaware of your fireball, which blasts into my stomach. I temporarily double over before saying “Obdura del boundera sen,” making a quick tracing motion as I cast Seal on your mouth (eh? Now that’s cool). I then swing my flail again.

      Now it’s 1-1

      1. Creative devon! Rolling a 4 i attempt to yank your arm i miss. then i duck rolling 3 so i get partially hit but 0 points. I then sprint at you then summon a spear while pointing it a you while doing a roar cry.(MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) Due to your Seal.

      2. Yeah thanks I was looking forward to using that.

        I rolled a three, so your spear grazes my shoulder but no point. I, in turn, make a hooking gesture at your eyes and incant “Voidus occa.” Simultaneously, I bull-rush you (Strength still in effect) in an attempt to knock you across the arena.

      3. I take the mind hit but it doesnt penetrate cause it is my first then i battle port behind you. The i run back a bit and do my best to meditate.

      4. I spin around and charge. While doing so, I yell “Annihilo bato!” and slap my wrists together. Then I swing my flail.

      5. I get up raising my sheild last minute and rolled a 3 i barley block and get thrown back but no point. I yell “summono Arma!” summoning a scythe mid strike parrying the flail and engaging in hand in hand combat(Or in this case Flail and Scythe combat).

      6. How do you like my scythe? Chose it cause i am a future necromancer.

      7. I yank at your scythe and say “Disablo” and your scythe vanishes. I follow up with an attempt to grab you by the neck and slam you to the ground.

        Scythe is fancy though. Respect the variety.

      8. I quickly incant “Centeratoraye xao xen” I twirl aside then run back grab a spear and hurl it at you chest.

      9. I rolled a 5 so I duck under the spear and reach out with Telekinesis in one hand to try and shove you to the ground. I let go of my flail and use my other hand to mime crushing an orange, yelling “Dreadus terrablus!”

      10. your strength wares off after telekenieis witch i roll a 2 so you get a point. i dart towards you going left and right dodging fear then as i get up in front uf you i say “Virtus vis viray!” Then punche you in the face.

        Score is 2-1

      11. I dart to the left and you miss, as I rolled a 5. I then draw a star and say “Summano elementus minimus” followed by “elementus attack!” The lightning waist-sized elemental charges you while I make a flying leap kick at your chest.

      12. I send the elemantal at you(I think this is like bending ark of fireball. Up to you devon seeing as your a DM) But to be safe i twirl aside were you would of hit me. Then i do a round house kick.

      13. I rolled a 2 and a 3, so the elemental hits me in the gut and I fall (point), followed by your kick which barely grazes my chin (no point). In retaliation, I shove my elemental off me and send it back at you, where it tries to kick your shin. I, however, say “summano arma” and again summon my triple flail, swinging it at you.

      14. I port behind you and the elemental then i grab you and the elemantal by the neck(Or whatever the elemantels would be) and shove you at him.
        P.S. I cast centarro and strength so thats how i did that.

      15. I rolled a 3, so I flip over the elemental and catch my foot in it, tumble to the ground, leap to my feet, and yell “Annihilo!” as I slap my wrists. I follow up with a swing of my flail. I subconsciously dismiss my elemental.

      16. howd you flip over the elemantal i held you neck? I bend the ark of the lightning bolt back at you than i sent a sword at you with telekeneises(spelled wrong most likely).

      17. Oh, thought you meant you grabbed me and threw me. I guess I slip out of your grip instead? Anyways, I rolled a 3 and 5, so I twirl aside from my bolt and the sword grazes the leg but no points. Now, I snap “Voidus lingua” while crushing at your throat, then swing my flail at your legs.

      18. i Twirl aside both attacks similtamiasly(Wrong spelling two). Then i yank both of your feet fowards hoping to trip you. Then i bull charge you then push you if it doesnt work. If it does i jump on you.

      19. “It” would be my telekenetic trip. For clarification.

      20. I snap “Impetus peragro” and appear behind you, then trace you while saying “Paralizo carcusa cemente” and kick you in the back.

    1. I stand still before flexing all of my muscles underneath my robe and yell “Virtus vis viray!” Then I launch myself forth and tackle you, attempting to pin your arms (idk, roll to see if you escape? 123 no 456 yes?)

      1. Alas it is 6!:( I battle port behind you and then grab a blade from a cart.

      2. I spin around and say “Baka!” as I shove the air, sending the force right at you.

      3. I raise my sheild. I hurl my blade at you but using telekineses so if you dodge it will fly back towards you. Then i run back wards a bit.

      4. I give the blade a Strength-induced slap to send it away and run up to you, saying “Summano arma” as I run, summoning a triple lightning flail that I slash at you with

  21. Hi Kaden, I’m ready to duel.

    I strut out of the stone hall and onto the sandy arena floor, wiggling my toes through the sand as I get my bearings. Then I summon nine rings of crackling lightning around my left arm and hold it high, roaring a hawkish war cry.

    Once you appear, I also bow.

  22. Yep, looks like midnight was a crash, Kaden (literally, cause I crashed.) See you at 6:30 my time

      1. Am or pm? Also, because it’ll be the only time I’m free for long enough for a duel.

  23. UHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH who do i duel? I will role the dice! I will duel you both but this is who i will duel first. 3 and under is aeris and the rest are devons.Devon first. Sorry Aeris. But you also just dueled.

    1. Hey what if we did a two v two duel instead of 1 v I know kaden,Devon,aeris and I all want to duel so we could do a two v two I’m fine with any teams!

      1. i think we should stick to 1v1. atleast i will stick to it. It will be hard to keep track of the duel and Mr.Bronny would have to make more rules so i will stick to 1v1.
        P.S. Nice idea though.

      2. I really like that idea but I agree with Kaden. But… that is a suggestion you could email or ask in the discussion posts as he checks there :)

      1. Sure i will duel you cause Aeris just dueled. And i think you havent dueled before or in a while. You can go first.

    1. Words of Advice from Aeris: Don’t say no offense, that makes it sound more offensive. Also the Arena was only created 2 weeks ago. So everyone is newwwwww. And Ill duel you when you decide to be a decent person =_=

      1. Woah woah woah we’re all decent people here man. I’m sure Kaden misspoke or didn’t look at it from your perspective; I know he would not purposefully be rude like that.

      2. Yeah, i accidently did the same thing to Atticus but it was an accident, right Attendant. Please forgive me:).

      3. haha no. lol. I was being sarcastic. I guess its harder to express sarcasm through texts. Lol sorry if you took that the wrong way or I said it a little rudely.

      4. THANK GOD.Sorry i could NOT tell you were using sarcasam.So you WILL duel me now?

      5. Yea, how bout 4:00 pm today? PST. Is that good?

  24. New Bio: Aeris (The Tornado) Volaris

    Age: 15

    I’m a 5th degree warlock with the element of wind.

    Home: Poleford

    Fighting Skills: His main strength is his speed and agility. When fighting he always tries to dodge spells and use disarm instead of blocking or deflecting them. This is because shield is his least powerful spell. He is really good at weapon combat and often pressures his opponents back and hits them with a spell. His elemental weapon is a quarterstaff. He has also learned the Whisper Blade technique of blocking telekinesis.

    Bio: Aeris lived in Blackhaven and just got his first degree at age 12 in wind. He had a kind mentor who also worked with Benjamin “Stonewall”. Benjamin was a warlock with the element of earth who always considered defense the best option. Shield is one of his most powerful moves and he learns quickly which helped him reach 4th degree by the time the Legion attacked. Aeris was related to a long line of warlocks who were always kind to the warlocks and non-warlocks alike. Not putting up for the torture and punishment the Legion had, he escaped into the woods. He then learnt his 2nd and 3rd degree wild. Along the way he met Kaden “Wildfire”. Kaden had run away from his farm when the Legion attacked. Aeris and Kaden trained together, helping each other get to the 3rd degree. After that he found a small village in the mountains like Sparrows Perch. While he was there, he met Dragoon Devon, a Nodian arcaner who was wandering the world learning wild with his 9 degrees in lightning. Aeris learnt his 4th degree with the help of Devon when the Legion came and burnt down the village and Aeris had to go into hiding again. He started learning the 5th degree wild when the trio defeated the Legion and he returned home to Blackhaven. He found a mentor and is starting to train in 6th degree. His dream was always to go to the Antioc library and try the Labyrinth, and he is working towards that goal. He had met with a warlock by the name of Oishia Cavanugh who has worked at Antioc with Senior Arcaneologist Ning since age 10. He has started training with her as she has clever fighting techniques and has even created her own spell. He has also met Alexander Titan. Alexander was a young warlock specializing in lightning and at his 8th degree. Like Aeris, Alexander also wants to learn at the Antioc library. Aeries has a few of his training session with him, and they do mock combat to hone their skills. Since then, Aeris has been able to go to the Academy while training to learn at the Antioc Library. There he met Leo “The Zap”. Leo is a 9th degree lightning warlock who specialized in Shine extensions and Aeris quickly became friends with him. Leo helped Aeris with non-elemental 6th degree spells. All of these new friends have helped him rise up to the 5th degree and he has almost earned his 6th degree.

    (AHHAHAHA YESSSS! IM DONE. AFTER ABOUT 1 hr of writing and 4 drafts. 4!!!!. Anyway yessssss)

    1. OMG! I used the copy where Charlotte wasn’t in the bio!!! Whatever, About halfway through the story it goes like this, “While he was there, he met Dragoon Devon, and Charlotte Dreads. Devon was a Nodian arcaner who was wandering the world learning wild with his 9 degrees in lightning while Charlotte was a 11th degree fire warlock who was a very popular figure at the Academy in Solia. Aeris learnt his 4th degree with the help of Devon and Charlotte when the Legion came and burnt down the village and Aeris had to go into hiding again.”

      Also don’t tell me I missed somebody because I’m too tired to go and put them in. (Lol tell me if I missed someone)

      1. Uh sorry but Benjamin lived in pole ford to so you have to probably change that,sorry

      2. Yea I forgot to switch out Blackhaven with Poleford but if you look at home it says Poleford.

    1. Nooooooo! WHY I forgot LEO. I wish there was a way to edit your comments :(

  26. Atticus”The Frozen Wins against Aeris”The Tornado” Volaris AT 4-1 cause of the mind spell then the kick adding up to 4 plus the other attacks. Good Game! Atticus’s score is about 5 wins and 1 loss(See last page to see the duel). And The Tornado’s score is 0 wins- 1 loss.

    1. Probobly shouldn’t have chose one of the most powerful warlock for my first duel.😂 (Please do not take this the wrong way lol. Anybody I chose would’ve been stronger than me anyway😁)

      1. No,we wouldnt be stronger than you, Everyone else has dueled 2-3 times(Sorry but your first duel with me didnt really count Alexander,no offense). Plus We have ALL Been Beaten by him. ANd we all fight different ways

    1. Yea lol. I really have no idea what I’m doing. Imma need to plan before my next duel lol

    1. Ahhhhhh! noooo. I forgot to include Charlotte Dreads. Will be back with another long bio

  28. Hii, it’s Spyte. I’ve changed my name bc I used spyte as a necromantic name. I chose wind instead so I thought this name would be a better fit. The bio and everything are the same. Speaking of which, imma go create a bio trying to incorporate all of the present warlocks. I’ve already included Atticus. Anyway, like the new name?

  29. Also 5:00 P.M. was not a dueling time it was an example but i could duel someone that time tommorow.

  30. The score is 2(Atticus)-1(Spyte) Atticus needs one more point to win! Spyte needs two!

He was related to a long line of warlocks who were always kind to the warlocks and non-warlocks alike. Spyte, not putting up for the torture and punishment they had, escaped into the woods. He then learnt his 2nd and 3rd degree wild. After that he found a small village in the mountains like Sparrows Perch. (I think that’s what it’s called). He then learnt his 4th degree when the Legion came and burnt down the village and Spyte had to go into hiding again. He started learning the 5th degree when the trio defeated the Legion and he returned home to Blackhaven. He found a mentor and is starting to train in 6th degree. His dream was always to go to the Antioc library and try the Labyrinth, and he is working towards that goal. He had met with a warlock by the name of Oishia Cavanugh who has worked at Antioc with Senior Arcaneologist Ning since age 10. He has started training with her as she has clever fighting techniques and has even created her own spell. This has helped him rise up to the 5th degree and he has almost earned his 6th degree.

  32. Spate I’m 9 th but we can do 5th degree also we could do olishia and spyte train together,I’m pdt so it’s the same 2:30 pdt ok

    1. Yea, I could add the training together part but can’t duel at 2:30. I’m at school at that time. I can do 3:00 tho. Can you do that? Sorry if this is messing up your schedule or something.

      1. Oh your not I’m available at that time sounds good

  33. Also just wanted to give some info,Mr.Bronny will be editing and adding rules such as more dice rolling and clearer rolls in around a week or so

      1. Sorry im late! When I got picked up my mom went to pick up starbucks. I tried to tell her I had something on but it sounded ridiculous. “Mom, I need to duel a 9th degree warlock who is also an attendant at the Antioc Library.

        If your still on, ill say my move.

        I flash by rings and bow. I immeaditely use Disarm, “Disablo!” and then strike out with my quarterstaff (My weapon)

      2. Uh I didn’t summon a weapon,I cast diablo on you then kick you in the shin.

      3. I roll away and then slap my wrists together shouting “Annihilo” while getting into a fightning position

      4. I then quickly cast centarro and then us Pedro centarric focus I duck and then start to run at you to engage in combat

      5. I re-summon my weapon, “Summano Arma”. Then I stepside your rush and do a quick jab with my weapon.

      6. It pieces a 5 inch long slice on my waist I quickly cast shine on it so the wounds covered by ice to stop the bleeding then from my learning at ohm I quickly run and slide through your legs then get up and kick you in the back.

      7. I fall over onto the ground. Before you can attack me again I yell, “Voidus vis” and cast Darkness. While in the darkness I swing my quarterstaff in a large circle, hoping to catch you off guard.

      8. It catches me slightly off guard but I quickly hear the staff swooshing due to my centarric focus I remember you fell to the ground meaning I could jump over it so I do that the say voidus vis canceling the spell and the leaping backwards in a defensive position.

      9. Surprised by the sudden burst of light I jump up and quickly snap, “Paralizo carcusa cemente” (I don’t know how this works, I think that after one mind armor hit, you are exposed to other mind attacks. Idk please clarify)

      10. Ok so what it means is that you get two mind attacks you can choose which ones don’t do a thing,I rolled a six so nothing happens then I cast virtus vis vira and then run towards you and do a 360 kick.

      11. Bruh I rolled a 1. I start flailing around but your roundhouse kick knocks me out cold. (I think that should be a win.) GG

      12. Nvm, strength isn’t a mind spell. Anyway yea i think that’s a win for you

      13. Ok good game I flash my rings and bow and then ask wanna go train?

      14. Sure, and that’s the part I’ve added to the bio.

  34. Hi, does a physical attack count as the one attack per text. For example, if I used Darkness and then kicked out at my opponent, would that count as two moves?

    1. no i think you have 1 spell one melle attack.
      P.S. What is your time(5:00 for instance?)

      1. Well, im Pacific Time. So right now its 10:00 am for me and 1:00 pm for Eastern Time. If you mean what time I can duel, I can duel at 5:00 PST time but if its 5:00 pm est it would be 2 pm for me and I’m at school at that time. But I can do it at 5 pm PST

      2. If you mean dueling than yes, I can duel at 5:00 pm PST, but not 5:00 pm EST bc im at school at that time. But yea can play at 5 pm PST

      3. Oof sorry for second post. I thought my first comment didn’t come through lol.

  35. Bio: Spyte (The Black Scar) Entros (Hope this is good and sorry if its long.)

    Age: 15

    I’m a 5th degree warlock with the element of wind. (I made this name thinking necromancy but read through comments saying I couldn’t).

    Home: Blackhaven

    Fighting Skills: His main strength is his speed and agility. When fighting he always tries to dodge spells and use disarm instead of blocking or deflecting them. This is because shield is his least powerful spell. He is really good at weapon combat and often pressures his opponents back and hits them with a spell. His elemental weapon is a quarterstaff. He has also learned the Whisper Blade technique of blocking telekinesis.

    Bio: Spyte lived in Blackhaven and just got his first degree at age 12 when the Legion invaded. He was related to a long line of warlocks who were always kind to the warlocks and non-warlocks alike. Spyte, not putting up for the torture and punishment they had, escaped into the woods. He then learnt his 2nd and 3rd degree wild. After that he found a small village in the mountains like Sparrows Perch. (I think that’s what it’s called). He then learnt his 4th degree when the Legion came and burnt down the village and Spyte had to go into hiding again. He learnt his 5th degree wild and that’s when the trio defeated the Legion and he returned home to Blackhaven. He found a mentor and is starting to train in 6th degree. His dream was always to go to the Antioc library and try the Labyrinth, and he is working towards that goal.

    1. Really cool, now we have an air warlock to do. We have some nice similarities in your character and mine with the learning wild aspect.
      I’d like to mention that the anti-Telekinesis trick was Whisper Blade-only, but there are ways to escape telekinetic grips as Augum and enemies demonstrate by spinning and rolling, or counter-Telekinesis.

      1. Cool! and sorry. I just won’t use the anti-telekinesis trick in duels. :)

      2. no! you can learn the hard way! Remember Augum can sometimes cut the thing just only when it is on him.(he does it in flight battles)

      3. True. But anyway im 5th degree so even if I can learn it I don’t think im strong enough to learn or whatever.

      4. No no I wasn’t saying not to use it. I was suggesting that you incorporate that into your bio. As for 5th degree, yeah it would be hard without Reveal but you could go by instinct or start slashing like crazy in front of you, your choice.

      5. Hi,Spyte wanna fight* I’m a fierce Ice warlock you can see my bio below,We could duel,also would you like to connect are bios as I live in the Antioc library,so we could connect that we know each other or something.Also every one should try to connect there bios to each others so we all know each other or something like that.

        * I did that on purpose.

      6. Sure Attendant. Can you give me a time PST. I can do it between 3:30 pm and 8:00 pm PST. And yea, once we duel or something Ill change my bio to something like. “Spyte wants to get into Antioc library. He had this inspiration from ‘Oishia Cavanugh’ and saw her knowledge in the many duels or something.’ Yea anyway, give a time’ :)

    2. you new? Also lots of people are learning wild. Me,I think Leo,Devon, and you. Also Good job for NOT choosing lightning its a pretty popular choice around here.

      1. I’m new to this Arena/website but I’m not new to the TAL and FOARD series. And yea, I was thinking of choosing lightning but I thought I would be unique and didn’t see any active members that had wind so I just chose that.

  36. I’ve been reading all of the books and just found this. I am kinda confused on how to make a bio. Do you just make it up or are there certain things you need to do to get a higher degree?

    1. What we do is make up a story line most likely at least a bit connected to the main storyline of FoaRD and tAL and you can only do 10 th degree for now we don’t have info about how get higher defrees or ranks at the moment.
