About this creation
The Tourney

Bracket: Foot combat

Category:
-Hammer and Tongs
The gloves are off and the swords just aren't doing the trick! You and your opponent may still have your blades around, but they aren't the only weapons in play. Use anything - terrain, tools, scenery, people - to win the upper hand in this out-of-the-ring showdown. Remember, we want action in this bracket! When in doubt, think of Captain Jack Sparrow.

All right! I don't know why, but I rushed this. I like how it turned out. Please excuse the bad picture quality - my camera isn't working and I'm not sure when I'll be able to get it working. It'll probably be a long time.




Our little story starts with a Crimson Knight. He jeered Allard of the Average Gnomes a lot about his speedo. So Allard invited the Crimson Knight to a duel at his tower.



Not very bright or athletic, he clumsily tripped over a root.



But after he fell, behold! A brilliant sword sat in the ground. He had been looking for a sword.



But as he pulled the sword, the tree fell down on him! Allard was watching from a ways off, snickering as he saw the unintelligent knight fall into the tree-trap that he had set.



Indignantly, the Crimson Knight strode away. His hip hurt and he had many scratches and cuts.






When he got to Allard's tower, he saw Allard in the window. Being particularly thick, he didn't realize that it was a dummy set there by Allard.

"Allard!" he shouted. "I'm here for the duel we planned!"

Allard was unresponsive. Rage boiled within the Crimson Knight.



Despite not being very bright, the Crimson Knight was an excellent archer. Without further ado, he shot the Allard dummy in the head! Unbeknownst to the Crimson Knight, the real Allard was expecting just that. The dummy`s head fell, setting off a series of reactions that resulted in . . .



Creak . . .



THUD!!



Allard walked out of his hiding place, greatly amused. A successful duel it was.



With a herculean effort, he pushed the fallen window-trap off his target.



Finishing, the duel, Allard completed a mighty stab.

Note: Nothing personal, Crimson Knights.

Quoting Kai Bernstein One thing that's always bothered me is the river; trans plates actually give much better results than round 1x1s. "Round"s alone have those gaps in between them that tend to make the water look either kind of lifeless or just...not like water. They're really good as bubbles or water texturing, though.
Yeah, I agree . . . I'm hoping to make a BL order as I only have 8 or so of those 2x1 trans tiles :P

Quoting David FNJ That's some nice foliage and rock work! I'm not sold on the tree design, but I guess it is meant to fall right? The tower may be a bit plain in shape, but it's still nice. Great entry!

There was no cheating, haha. Allard dug up a tree and set it up so when the sword was pulled from it, the tree would fall. The vine was simply incidental. Allard damaged his own tower so that he could make the front fall on the knight. Haha, I'm glad this is only a tournament :P Thanks, David.
