A short battle between two newcomers. It's a short read, so everybody roll out and cast a vote!

Amazing start to a battle you two! Too bad it can't continue, it would be a great read by the sample you have already. But as it stands, I'm going to vote WDD; the rhythm rhymes and flaming anger had me amused, and honestly I give props to being able to drop rhymes like that on the fly, epic work! BD, you did an awesome job portraying your character and sticking with his feelings, and I loved the glimpse into his past. Keep it up!

Vote: WDD

Hey! Skeletons still feel pain! You knows it!

+1BD, but seriously. They do. All human senses besides heat and cold, so keep your jaw hinged!

+1 for Brilliantly Dark as Arzek

I feel that BD consistently used better tactics and held his own on the dialogue front. They both could have used a bit more flash and/or detail on the attacks themselves. The details of the battlefield itself were regretfully ignored as the battle progressed - it would have been nice to see Severoth disappear briefly below the grass-line when he fell, for example, or Arzek citing it as the reason he couldn't locate his boomerang precisely. However, both authors were partially at fault here, so I won't hold it against him.

White Dragon of Doom threw in more cosmetic detail, such as Severoth's insect collection, but alone it wasn't enough to win my vote.

Finally, I believe double-attack posts such as WDD's last, are not allowed even if one of the attacks is by a pet or summon.

I was resisting the temptation to see how the poll was going until now, I can only say this. YAY! I AM WINNING BY A VOTE ( Also, thank you all for reading our battle. And @MikeEB, thanks for the advice, it is always great to see input from good writers, so I'll take your thoughts into consideration for the next battle)
