Subj: Year 650 draws to a close

With the Year 650 Championship in a deadlock for the first time ever, we held a series of five challenges to break the tie! Iakimen and Jhui battled tooth and claw during these events to claim the honours of being Champion: crowned Lord of the Crossing and being chosen to be the wielder of the Staff of Nicator! The five events and their winners were:

Flash Foozle - Jhui
- In this event both players were given the same card with 5 items; the person who completed the card first won the event. Items were all found upon the continent of Meropis.

History Quiz - Iakimen
- A test of knowledge this 10-question quiz (1 point per question) resulted in a 4:2 final score.

Championship Tumblerace - Jhui
- Setting off from Sealion Cove, the participants tumbled their way to Lake Vundamere, found the plinth, and then raced to Manusha.

Arena Duel Challenge - Iakimen
- The participants entered the Matsuhama Arena in a battle to death. In a close match, it was Iakimen who triumphed.

Experience Contest - Jhui
- A 60-minute battle in a twisting labyrinth, with endless waves of adversaries of increasing difficulty, this was a challenge not only of might and endurance, but of strategy... picking one's opponents wisely had tremendous effect on the outcome. Final scores for this nail-biting event were 4942776 (Jhui) to 4726039 (Iakimen).


For those of you not keeping score, that was 3:2 in favour of Jhui, making him our Year 650 Champion, Lord of the Crossing, and bearer of the Staff of Nicator!

A massive congratulations goes out to all of our participants in the games! We would be remiss if we didn't applaud the efforts of Iakimen as well, who made this contest one for the history books!
