Helmy says:

WOW!! Did you see all of those battles? Weren't they awesome, and extremely bloody? I'd give all of you a hand, but Chrono might get offended. So, you know how the arena was changed last fight? It's happening again... except it's sand again. You might think it's normal, right? THINK AGAIN! Some of the spots of sand are quicksand, and the quicksand locations change with every battle, so you'll never know where it is.

It'd suck if you happened to get caught in there... hopefully your opponent is nice enough to pull you out before they pulverize you.

Example: 2-0 is two wins, zero losses

Darvenel 6-0 || Chrono 4-2
Glitch 6-0 || Kaine 4-2
Pet 6-1 || Contour 5-1
Dion 5-2 || Jinxie 3-2
Kichi 5-2 || Kyriel 3-2-1
Kyran 5-3 || Quinlan 4-5
Enri 3-2 || Eva 2-4
Alexei 4-2 || Ida 2 - 4
Lilin 4-3 || Broken 3-4
Virgil 4-3 || Elijah 3-4
Cressida 4-3 || Thane 1 - 6
Sol 2 - 4 (Dropped opponent)
Shira 2 - 4 (Had bye)

Remember, keep fighting in the rounds, even if you lose, to improve your score and get better prizes!

Quick FAQ

Please read the Group Rules and FAQ for more information.

:bulletred: How do I join the group? :bulletred:
Fill out the application and submit it to the Students folder. If the application is accepted, you will be sent an invite.

:bulletred: Do you have to be an artist to join? :bulletred:
No - you can ask someone else to make your application picture (or commission it). Other submissions can be roleplays or stories.

:bulletred: What are the activity requirements of the group? :bulletred:
One deviation (roleplay, story, art) per three months. You don't have to pass your classes but your student might be sad... granted, it's not hard to pass a class if you turn in a quick picture, short roleplay, or short story twice in three months.

:bulletred: When is the chatroom usually active? :bulletred:
6:00 PM - 11:00 PM CST is usually when we have the most people.

:bulletred: How many classes do I have to register for? :bulletred:
Minimum one, maximum three.

:bulletred: What creatures can I use for my student? :bulletred:
Anything supernatural or paranormal - but ensure the character isn't too strong as a beginner.

:bulletred: What submissions do you accept? :bulletred:
Pretty much anything - we accept logged roleplays, short stories/long stories, artwork (traditional or digital), plushies or other traditional work of your characters -- as long as it's related to your OW character or another OW character, or the recognizable setting.

:bulletred: What is EXP used for? :bulletred:
It is most useful in tournaments, but as a general rule, EXP gauges how strong a character is in comparison to his/her/hir peers.
