That last round was pretty exhilarating, wasn't it??? No, I actually fell asleep. HA. If only you little dingbats were more interesting to watch... though, it seems like the phantasms have a gift for you. They've changed the amphitheater around a little bit, perhaps to make things more... dangerous.

The sand in the ring has gone, replaced with metal plating about three feet by three feet. As you watch, the plates sometimes pull away from the others and fly to another part of the arena, replacing each other. Be careful, if you're standing on one that's shaking, it's going to fly off, and you'll probably skid off the metal plating and fall... to your death. The plates also sometimes turn blue and freeze a second later, or turn red and get super hot. Be aware of your surroundings and the ground beneath you! If you happen to get trapped beneath a plate after it lands, well... god help you.

So yeah, keep that in mind! Maybe you guys are boring them.

Example: 2-0 is two wins, zero losses

Darvenel 4-0 || Eva 2-3
Kaine 4-0 || Broken 2-2
Glitch 4-0 || Enri 2-2
Chrono 4-0 || Cressida 2-3
Pet 4-0 || Ida 2-2
Contour 4-2 || Dion 3-2
Jinxie 3-0 || Kyran 2-2 
Kyriel 3-0-1 || Virgil 2-2
Kichi 3-2 || Haruki 0-4
Quinlan 3-3 || Thane 1-4
Alexei 2-2 || Sol 0-4
Elijah 2-2 || Shira 0-4
Lilin 2-2

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.
