Alright folks. I will be offering a 1,000,000 gold prize reward, you heard it, one million coins to whoever writes the BEST poem. The contest is simple. Submit a poem in the topic below, I'll read them all, tear them apart, give critique, and pick the one that's the best constructed from a literary standpoint. As a TA/tutor for poetry irl, cool rhymes won't get you anywhere unless you're mah nigga and you bust some caps with your lyrical skillz. That being said... the competition ends in a month.

1st Place = 1,000,000 + custom group icon + mod of writing section for a month
2nd Place = 1,000
3rd Place = 500

The competition begins now.

Interesting... Not the best at poetry but I'll consider it.

Could we potentially make this be a regular thing though? Kinda like how maps and spriting are? Because I think there used to be writing competitions but they didn't last that long.

(The following is because of boredom, also the last line is sarcasm.)
This is not my poem
but wouldn't you know it
Cool rhymes won't get you anywhere
How in the world is that fair?

An Annual Wake
by Soadfa


A blinding red heat gave way to a calmer orange
As happens every year. Persephone returns to her husband and the Earth
dies.

As the final throes of the year invade the world, a change,
subtle, yet overt,
occurs in me, to match the searing white.
A humble evaluation of the annual life of reality.

As the warmth escapes from the corpse of the planet
my breath becomes as icy
as my heart.
Passing final, unrelenting judgment on some matters
while welcoming others to share my warmth
against the blinding, searing white.

Yet may those doomed to the cold share instead in another reprieve?
The year renews as the fiery bird of legend,
granting renewal for all who truly grasp for it.
Like a phoenix rising from its own dead ashes,
so we unveil a new world
out of the pure, blinding, searing white.

--------------------
Openly confessed to killing cookies.
Wanted:
Alive: 200000000 + a cookie.
Dead: 130000
Please bring suspect directly to Cedar Nyx. She will deal with the punishment of this felony herself...
BEWARE THE FRUIT KNIFE.

I do not tread lightly. I prefer cleats.

Not if I win them all to support my major in mature discussion and minor in controversy.

Soadfa had a poem ready faster than I would have a spam galaxy post ready.

The One in the Hole

The lads and the gents
were playing a game
that's all they ever do
it's their claim to fame

on one glorious evening
while that lads and gents fought
one of the lads; Michael
had a crazy little thought

he ran to the home
of the Mad King Ryan
in order to free Edgar
he had to keep tryin'

When Edgar was free
The lads had rejoiced
Edgar had been trapped
they had no other choice

As time went on
The Mad King went home
Noticed it was empty;
Edgar was on his own

The King was not happy
so he found a new cow
it mattered not
he needed one right now

At the end of the night
All went to the home of the King
the lads could not wait
for the old King to sing

But when they arrived
they just had to fold
"You don't understand" the King said
"Edgar is the ONE IN THE HOLE!"

Boats

Days go by without a regret
As I sit by the shore, easy to forget
Some things are just meant to be...

But there are things that I still desire
Is it a sin that I've began to feel ire?
To watch the waves roam free.

They claim greed to be a vicious curse
But I see from it, ambitions nurse
And on them, the boats course their test.

Who is the slave, and who is the master?
Saying it's heresy to follow, they're rather fond.
Is it not the same, but faster?
That I confess my servitude to want.
On the freedom that is an illusion of the tempest.

If there truly is something known as the will
How long must I wait, until...

The waves become free of the wind?

Some things are meant to be...
To watch the waves roam free.
And on them, the boats of course test
Their freedom on the infinite tempest.

When will the wind become free of the sun?

/End

But of course, TEB writing contests are just popularity contests anyways, so what's even the point? At the end of the day, even in a democracy, we're nothing but slaves. In this case, the opinion is just a slave of popularity. Lol. Though I kind of just wanted to vent my frustration with this "poem" lol.

Don't open this one in church.


There once was a young lad named Nick
He was dumb, but had a big dick
He made women moan
With pleasure at home
Then was beaten to death with a stick.


I feel bad using language like that but why not.

My resume
Welcome to the Friend Zone, I am your tour guide today.

If you look to your left, you will see the Waterfall of Tears. These are the tears shed every day, by boys across the world. Do not drink the tears, because, in large amounts, they taste like salt water. This waterfall is our main source of income, as we sell these tears to witches interested in using children's tears in a potion. Remember this, it will be on the test.

If you look on your brochure, you'll see the amount of people who've escaped the Friend Zone permanently. Can't find it? Exactly.

On your right, you'll see our cardiologist, eating in the dining room located next to the generic-outdoor-place-to-play. I'll go ahead and tell you, although there's always an idiot or two who ignores me: No, he cannot fix broken hearts. He told me to warn you that the first... let's go with idiot, the first idiot who asks him to fix their broken heart will die from a heart attack.

Oh, we're arriving. Now, your sleeping areas are separated into male and female dormitories. You cannot be in the other genders' dormitory after dark, because the last thing we need is for everyone to be having nonstop sex. If you're homosexual, we ask that you refrain from nonstop sex. And if any of you masturbate, please clean it up; we don't want to.

This will conclude your tour of the Friend Zone.


A wall of text explaining why tanks don't fare well in Gauntlets:
The issue about tanks in Gauntlets is; they can happily mow down an army of regular units in regular gameplay. If their speed is on the low side, the enemies are generally wielding ridiculously heavy weapons anyways, putting them at nearly 0 speed. And your tank can probably just knock out any threat in a single blow anyways.
In the arena, that's not true.
In the arena, your enemy will happily pull out some silver weapons, and use them. The weapon triangle will only help slightly.That one point of damage isn't too important when the enemy is critting your for 60 in a single blow.
Your defense may be high, but the enemy isn't limited by such paltry things like "caps."
You see, the people in the arena are just various incarnations of Marcus.
Marcus is not limited by stat caps, he just chooses to hold back to give the enemy a chance.
However, in the arena, he lessens his restraint. He gives you but one concession: That he doesn't just pull out his wang and end your life. And he is not merciless, he lets you run. Of course, since when can tanks run? If Marcus wanted, he could chase you, but he feels bad for you, tank, who made the mistake of entering his vacation home.

There once was a man named Death
who was constantly at your door
Watching, waiting, peeping, seeking
You could almost hear him walking on the floor

(I might extend this later lol)
