(Before you get angry at me, yes, this is inspired by TenebrisNemo's Tournament of Champions. I thought it looked cool and wanted to try it! Good luck!)
Hello, and welcome to the first annual (this probably won't happen every year so don't get your hopes up) TOURNAMENT OF LEGENDS! You and your fellow competitors have been pulled here from across the multiverse to fight in a competition for fame, glory, and probably some likes and follows! Now, what are the rules?
You must create a legendary creature to represent you in the fights. This creature must cost 4 or less mana, but will get better at this whole arena fighting thing after each round. After the first round (if you win), you must make a new and improved version of your character, costing 5 or 6 mana, and having the abilities similar to the original. After that, your character will have been through enough that their planeswalker spark ignites, so you make a planeswalker for that character. Only one character per person! Also, color identity can change, as long as you keep at least one color from the original.
The characters will be judged on a number of aspects, such as abilities, power/toughness, balance (a card that is TOO overpowered will not make it to the next round, so make them BALANCED!), and just how cool they are! Also, if you want to give a description of your character telling their specific strengths and weaknesses, you can! This may give you an advantage or a disadvantage against certain other characters, but it is highly recommended that you do this! Also, remember to make the strengths and weaknesses BALANCED!
I will be joining this contest too! I want to join in the fun! This is my character, one of the ones I have made for D&D! I will not be biased towards my character in the judging. If it is a bad matchup for me, my character will not advance. That said, if it is a bad matchup for your character against mine, don’t blame the fact that you lost on biased judging. In fact, I will give a short explanation as to why one character beat another for each matchup. Also, don’t say that I purposely created a matchup in which my character was favored. The pairs will be determined randomly.
Strengths: Very smart, specializes in pyromancy, can breathe fire, has hard scales
Weaknesses: Very weak physically, very clumsy
The deadline for the first versions of characters is August 20.
I will be choosing 8 characters to compete (for a total of 3 rounds) out of all the entries.
If you make it to the 1st round, your character’s card gets favorited.
If you make it to the second round, you get 2 favorites.
If you make it to the last round, good job. You get 3 favorites.
If you win the whole thing, you get a follow, a mention in the Hall of Fame, and bragging rights. (No more favorites for you. You already have 6 from this contest)
Coolest card prize: The smith of the card I personally think is coolest (other than the winner) will get a favorite, a follow from me, and a mention in the Hall of Fame.
Good luck, and Have Fun!
