Log of Event
On the evening of Sunday, June 18th, 2006, Nine up and coming duelists convened in the Arena to determine who would earn the right to bear the Talon of Redwin through the coming Summer! With a mix of paricipants both determined and skilled, there would need to be one duelist with the edge to bypass all others in order emerge victorious through four rounds of the tournament and be crowned the new Talon of Redwin.
In the first round, the first to be eliminated was the delicious Charlie Jericho, as the lovely Anjolie Quinn relentlessly hounded her for Six quick rounds and taking her duel by the score of 5-1. That was shortly followed by old-timer Mikael Rheinhart emerging victorious over Tsu Nami in a closer bout of 5-3.5, but in eight rounds. The remaining two duels were slightly longer, with Losden removingd Derrac Montrose with defensive tactics, 5-1.5 in Ten hard fought rounds, and Ashin Arinathe coming from behind to kick out one Eddie Venom 5-4 in 11 grueling.
By virtue of being the first entry, Rhiannon Harker was granted the bye in the First round, and now stood to face the number Five seed, Anjolie Quinn. In thirteen long fought, difficult rounds, Rhiannon finally got rid of Anjolie by striking over her low defense to take the match 5.5 to 4. Just before that, however, the third seed, Losden snuck a lunge under fourth seed Mikaels high attack to send him packing while second seed Ashin took the break in this round.
With the third round beginning, it was up to Rhi and Ashin to fight it out to see who would face Losden, who got the Bye, for the right to be known as the Talon of Redwin. Rhi started out strong but fell behind early, staying behind with a couple trades. By then she was obviously fed up and turned her skill on, gaining three unanswered points to finally force Ash to the exit, 5-3.5 in 8 rounds.
In the final duel, and after a quick break, Rhiannon then faced off against Losden. Losden took a quick lead of 1.5 after four rounds, but once she started scoring, Rhi wouldn't be stopped, holding Losden to a single trade and taking the rest of the points, defeating Losden in Eleven rounds, by the score of 5.5-2.5!
Congratulations to Rhiannon Harker, the New Talon of Redwin! And an exceptional show put on by all who participated!
