Greetings Magic Duellers,

for this year's Halloween I'm willing to organize a spellcasters tournament, open to everybody.


Contestants are required to set nice spell-words for their favorite spells (MD spells - either regenerable or spell stones).

Each contestant will "battle" against another - direct elimination - using one cast of one spell of their choice.

In each battle, 2 judges will rate your magic arts under these criteria:

1- how fancy/inspiring/evocative your spell words are;

2- how appropriate your spell words are to the actual spell;

(e.g., "may the fleas of a 1000 camels infest your armpits" might be appropriate for a "attack-lock" spell, but not for a "mirror ritual"...)

3- how much Halloween feeling you managed to put in your magic.


The contestant with highest score wins and passes the turn.

Each contestant may only use a combination of spell / spell-words once: if they pass the turn, they have to battle either with another spell or with different spell-words.


To apply, post here your name and ID by 21 October.

After that date, there will be a random matching to determine who fights against whom in the first turn.


Rewards will depend on the number of applications, if 8 or above I'll toss in a Horseman creature for the winner.

All right we had 7 applications + 1 from a mysterious character who wished to stay anonymous... :ph34r:

Within the next few days Aethon and I will be pairing the opponents, then we'll be asking your time schedules and availability.

But one detail I can disclose right now: the rewards!

- Horseman creature;

- WP;

- 11th anniversary Barren Soul;

- Elucubration creature. 


The winner of the contest will choose first, then the 2nd, the 3rd and the 4th.

To those who signed up: please choose a number between 1 and 8.

Each number can picked only once.

This plus a very special piece of magic will do the pairing. :D


The anonymous contestant can either pick a number - thus revealing him/herself - or be automatically associated with the remaining one.

Ledah, Ailith, jakubhi? I need you to pick a number please.


I'll be online for the first round of duels on monday 31st (gather at the howling gates, I'll try to be there all day long).

If you can't attend on monday, no big issue. For each couple of duelers we'll find a suitable day and timeframe.

Thank you. Now we have all the pairings.

Since Ailith and Ledah asked me to cancel their participation, jakubhi and Sunfire pass their 1st turn automatically.

The other matches are:

- The mysterious anonymous dueller VS Dark Demon

- dst VS Jubaris

Each of you is being contacted in order to arrange a suitable time-frame.

The tournament is progressing slowly but steadily and we are approaching the final matches.

After prevailing over Faceless Noob, Dark Demon won once again, this time against jakubhi, thus reaching the finals.

Meanwhile, Sunfire won against dst in a very close match.

The next few days will see Sunfire VS Dark Demon for 1st - 2nd place; and dst VS jakubhi for 3rd - 4th place.

All of them will get nice rewards, but who's gonna be the winner? Stay tuned!

After one week of invisible struggle, the echoes of a spell prevailed over the other and a winner was chosen...

In the finals match Sunfire won against Dark Demon; while dst won over jakubhi in the duel for 3rd and 4th place.

We have had several inspiring spells, a powerful magic display, but now we have the winners... :

1st - Sunfire

2nd - Dark Demon

3rd - dst

4th - jakubhi

... and the rewards!

- A horseman creature;

- A wish point;

- A 11th anniversary Barren Soul;

- An Elucubration creature (I heard it's colored...)


As stated in the previous post, Sunfire will pick first, then DD, then dst, and then jakubhi.

Congratulations to all and thank you Aethon for helping me run this contest.

      For a long time now, i have considered myself both a poison and a medicine to this world. Like a burning fire in the woods, i equally destroyed and simultaneously helped make room for regrowth. At times i did this knowingly, other times i did it against my better knowledge. I am here today to let MagicDuel as a community know, that it is time to fully and truly dedicate myself to the Path of Light. This is not to say that my prior attempts were invalid or simply an act to mislead, as i have been genuinely trying to regress myself back to what i once was in the beggining for many many moons now. I feel like a broken record, but every new realization also gets me closer to my goal of getting back to what i once was without losing what i have learned. It has not been easy, matter of fact most times i almost gave up from the sheer stress and shame i felt in most of my waking moments. It is in this newest phase that i have realized something, and i believe it is important enough to share publically. MagicDuel has made me the man i am today, for better or for worse. It is up to me and my limitations or lack thereof to decide which category i fall into, Poison vs Medicine. So today i place my foot down and wholly dedicate myself to being the Medicine that i believe MagicDuel deserves. MD has made me everything i am and am not, thus it has earned my full and undying respect for the 7th and final time. I will not stray from this path, so i say let the games begin.

      Beggining as of April 1st 2018 and every month thereafter, i am holding what i have come to know as the Activity Tournament. For every new hour you are logged into MD (using server time) you will be able to gain 1 point towards the Monthly Activity Limit. Anyone could simply stay lazily logged in all day and gain 24 points (1 point for every hour) for said day, but that is not the daily cap. Anyone that is actually doing something (resource gathering, fighting, holding a conversation of non generic structure, etc) during that time frame will be able to gain double the points,  for a true daily point cap of 48 points. All point attempts are to be sent to me in the form of a set of screenshots over forum, 1 for every seperate hour window of game time and as a batch file at the end of each month. I say window because a SS taken @ 12:01 server time will be worth the same point chance as one taken at 12:59 server time and they can not be counted twice for the same hour window. Unless sponsorship of some sort is obtained, i can only reward the first place winner of this Activity Contest but i feel the rewards are worth fighting for. First place gets 20 credits, and remember this will reoccur every month for the top ranking dedicated MD player.

      A side note: If work or school hinders your chance at winning, i might suggest using the Google Chrome mobile browser to at least attempt to (if planned appropriately) log in, harvest a resource on scene, and take a SS for maximum points. To the extent of my knowledge the Google Chrome mobile browser doesnt mark anyone as alts since it does not use a proxy (for the record, dont use proxies) but i would appreciate it greatly if @Chewett could either verify or correct that statement. If any questions arise or anything i have said is unclear please do feel free to ask on this thread and i will be happy to answer to the best of my abilities. If you do not have anything progressive or positive to state about this action then i kindly ask you not post at all but failing that realize that from this very moment on i will be ignoring all negative commentary so do not be surprised if someone makes that type of statement and it goes unacknowledged by me. Thank you for your time and have a wonderful day.

      A simple enough quest, and an old favourite!  Turn one of your favourite scenes into a Halloween extravaganza!
      Submit entries here by Sunday 20:00ST for after that a voting poll will be opened so that the public may choose their winner! (Polls will close 24 Hrs after opening)
      Only one winner will be chosen, so please note: For any quest tagged with "Elucubrat", if you have already won one, the creature will automatically go to the next runner-up, and so on, until it finds one (I've been told they don't play well together and get jealous for their master's attention!) . If the winner should have won a Elu already, please message me so we can work out another prize.

      The all hallows night is almost upon us, and it's time to get you cauldron at the ready!
      This is a 3 stage quest and all stages should be completed to be eligible for any winning position.
      Part 1: Create your own version of Shakespeare's "3 Witches" cauldron scene.
      Part 2: Name and describe the created potion.
      Part 3: Create a cauldron!
      The ingredients and chosen "Three Witches" should all be MD based (though a little slack for wording is allowed here and there). The connection to Witch>Wording>Ingredients will mean a better score at the end. Humour and/or things/mixtures that are disgusting will mean a better score at the end. Uniqueness and creativity in all three sections will mean...you guessed it!...a better score in the end! Cauldrens may be made out of any sort of material you like, even drawn or painted! Uniqueness and creativity will be the highest deciding factor on a winner. The better the conformity to Halloween, the better the score in the end. Please include a handwritten player name and ID with any submitted cauldron picture. Here is the scene for those of you that do not know it: Quest begins from now (27/10/2016) and shall close no later than one week from this date (3/11/2016). Winner will be decided by a panel of judges.
      Please send all entries to me in a forum PM titled "Cauldren 2016" (Anything title otherwise will not be read)
      1st: 1 WP/Elucubrat
      2nd: WP/Elucubrat (whichever is left)
      3rd: LoC Spell Stone + 1 Top Spender Ticket + 1gc
      (P.s. Don't worry about trying to make it as fancy as Shakespear's version, just make sure it follows roughly and you announce who is speaking which part and when!)

      For this quest, make or bake a fiendishly tasty treat that is disgustingly repulsive to one's eyes!
      Submit your entries by 22:00 ST Sunday for after then a poll shall be opened for the public to choose their winner! (Polls will close 24HRs thereafter)
      Only one winner will be chosen, so please note: For any quest tagged with "Elucubrat", if you have already won one, the creature will automatically go to the next runner-up, and so on, until it finds one (I've been told they don't play well together and get jealous for their master's attention!) . If the winner should have won a Elu already, please message me so we can work out another prize.
