Welcome to
The Last Man Standing:
Round V

Six score and twenty have set out to fare
a journey that few could dream to dare,
standing here they took their vow,
and to this place they return, even now.

Six score and twenty who then tried to weather
a quest that brings children and champions together,
until the end when the blizzards gale
brings an end to each heroes tale.

The sun circles round, another year to pass
the young and brave start to amass
and the wounded rise up to redemption at last.

So come you with plenty, with your courage and might
gather together on this blackened night.
Bring with you those things that you've loved and cherished;
for in the absence of such the strongest have perished.

Those who still wish to partake in this game

take up your quill
and sign your name.


The Task:

Your quest begins at Castle Blankpage with all of your fellow contestants. Across the land are a series of Waypoints, and each one you must reach and report back to the king before it closes.

Those who stumble or falter and find themselves wandering in the dying light when the Waypoint closes will be left behind to the beasts of the wilderness and eliminated.

The task is simple:
do not fail.

Your challenge begins on
Monday 23rd September.
Fare thee well, dear wayfarers.

Bit tired of being a Rogue, so I'mma be a Warrior.
S'io credesse che mia risposta fosse
a persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma per ciò che giammai di questo fondo
non tornò vivo alcun, s'i' odo il vero,
senza tema d'infamia ti rispondo.

Inferno, Canto 27, l 61-66.

Actually, I'm entering as a Rogue XD I'm currently trying to type up fanfic I wrote throughout the last couple of months, and I'd really like to rework it.

I'd like to try my hand as a Warrior this time!
There's a thin semantics line separating weird and beautiful. And that line is covered in jellyfish.

I believe in a universe that doesn't care and people that do.

I come from the land beyond the depths of the darkest forum.
I command the holy soldiers that guard the lands where
the young writers harken their oath from.
I am the once again Warrior, the one and only, Jack.
All call me Mister. Some call me Sir. The bravest few call me:
