Welcome to
The Last Man Standing:
Round VI


Here, on this day, at Blankpage Inn,
Lies a group of adventurers and plenty of gin.
Beyond your glass, a wanted poster catches your eyes,
Bright and bold with a hefty prize.

You may be the first, you may be the final,
But you accept the bounty, to take the gamble.
The bounty whispers to you,
speaking its words, loud and true.

"To those who see this, will you 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.

Will you, the brave one to see this, dare 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."

Signed by the royal knight, Tenyo



The Task:

Your hunt begins at Blankpage Inn 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.


To Enter:

1. Read the Rules, Guidelines, and FAQs

2. Decide how you wish to enter (as a Warrior, Bard, Rogue, or Sage)

3. Declare your role in the contest below.

4. Declare your project in the club or Writers Corner.



Your Challenge begins September 5


Fare thee well, dear bounty hunters.

I've got like 5+ novels to choose from, so yeah, Warrior (and also Rogue for some poetry stuff).
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.

Taking a risk and declaring myself a Warrior!
Silver is a chemical element with the symbol Ag (from the Latin argentum, "shiny" or "white") and atomic number 47.


okay but does this mean I have a melting point of 1763.2 °F

This sounds so exciting! I'd like to join as a Bard.
And so, being young and dipped in folly
I fell in love with melancholy,
