    I would have thought Nakano, but you are giving Rodica some high-ish stats. Is this her post having taken the priest's head and thus worrying about the diluted effects of Dracula?

      Yes, most stats are taking their best into consideration in relation to other immortals.

      Still, even though she has better stats on average, she has no special skill which Nakano does have, so when applying that skill, Nakano would win.

    I'm not familiar with Rodica so it would be difficult to vote for her. Still, Nakano's power of illusion is powerful so I'm going to give it to him and not entirely just because I don't know Rodica.

    Rodica because she has kick ass hair and shiny armor and the numbers are with her, any illusion is immaterial.

      I will go with Nakano.

          Before I cast my vote, I just need to know one thing and I can't remember if it has been addressed. Are the two contestants fighting in their prime? Obviously, I ask due to the condition we saw Cullen in during Curage.

            Since anything goes, the players decide.

            If you like to exclusively pitch fighters against each other whilst in their prime, or have them murder the other immortals in their sleep, either is fine.

            So if you like Grayson to be in his prime from his time with Darius, sure, go ahead!

        • #82
          I actually consider Grayson in his prime in present day. Cullen's the one I'm worried about. If I take present day Cullen v Grayson, Grayson wins. If I take primed Cullen he could very likely take Grayson.

            I think Cullen is really good but Grayson is a better, more levelheaded, fighter.
            Cullen is weakminded, drugged up & paranoid, he'll be jumpy but Grayson would keep his cool. He won't be ambushed because strategically Grayson is pretty good as well.

            My vote goes to Grayson.

              I actually put some time and thought into this. Many look down on Brian because of what he became and not so much of what he was at one time. I agree with Aragorn that we witnessed Grayson in his actual prime because he pretty much owned Duncan in their fight. Grayson is as dangerous on the mental side as he is on the physical side. I prefer the fights to be at each fighters prime, as that is when we will get the best fight. One thing about Grayson, he will see Brian's nerves not quite where they should be. He will talk a lot of smack, trying to get in Brian's head. Grayson tells Brian how he sees the fear, but he can help him. He has all the answers if he would just join Grayson instead of fight him. Cullen, known in many places as the best swordsman, tells Grayson he would never join him. Grayson tells him he has just what he needs in his pocket and reaches into his coat. Brian's instincts kick in and he draws his sword. The fight is brutal and vicious. In the end, Brian takes Grayson's head and receives a very powerful quickening.

              During the Quickening, Cullen sees the battles Grayson has been part of, the march across the globe, and the alleged betrayal of Darius. From the Quickening, Brian gains Grayson's knowledge of battle tactics, business acumen, and aggressiveness. As Brian sits, recovering, he begins to feel something else; anger....hate. Burning desire to kill a man he has never even seen before. It strikes him as odd, but he brushes it off. As he starts to walk away, he remembers Grayson was reaching for a hidden weapon (probably a gun, Bruan thinks to himself). Brian goes to Grayson's body and reaches into the coat pocket. There is no weapon. It is a clear plastic bag, containing some sort of powder. Vurious, he opens the bag and tastes it. The taste is odd, but the sensation he gets from it..... Any fears or hesitations are gone IMMEDIATELY. Brian smiles and puts the bag in his pocket. The victory is his, along with this special bonus prize.

              And deep in Brian's mind, he hears Grayson's voice say "And now, you are mine. Priest, I come for you next".

              For the record, on my own list, I have Brian ranked only two spots above Grayson.

              Slash, that was a fun read. I'm going with that! Brian wins and gains some perspective and acumen from Grayson.

                  Oh, dear Lord, that's an evil pairing. Since I despise them both it's pretty much a toss up, but since they were both Amanda's students, and Michelle has the reach and the self involvement not to go all mushy and trustful over a kid she'd think an annoyance more than anything, I might give it to her if it's a sunny day and the ice cream truck has been around.

                    I'm voting for Kenneth. He's a devious little creature and his tactics are very successful. Kenneth will have no trouble in misleading Michelle and setting up a situation in which he can take her head.

                      I agree with Ward on this one, I think Kenny would have no qualms killing her. I think she'd lower her guard because he's a kid and he'd hack her to bits, sadly. One of the only people in the field I think Kenny would beat. But I think he'd win this. Assuming we can't move to "2019" when she has been training for 20+ years?

                        In a straight up fight Kenneth would lose to many because he is physically weaker.
                        But since this an anything goes format, I think Kenneth could beat many immortals.

                        And you could have Michelle be trained up for 20+ years, she'd be a better fighter but probably still gullible enough to get whacked by Kenneth. XD

                      Why arrogance, though? By numbers, it seems that Rodica ought to win.

                        Because I think she has a touch of arrogance.
                        And yes, Rodica is physically stronger than Nakano but Nakano has his power of illusion which brings down his opponents total by 50 points.

                          Korolus wins because Vlad was about to take him out and people thought an old man was being attacked for no reason. Some people grab Vlad and Korolus takes his head. Surprise upset.

                              Who was declared the winner of the previous match?

                              This is a tough match.

                              I'm going with a storyline where Timon escaped Kalas and fled and was able to avoid him and lived to current day.

                              Timon has lived a good life and tries to help Cahill just like Duncan did. I think it goes sour and Cahill attacks Timon in an inopportune time and manages to kill him. Very sad.

                              Disagree, Timon is 1,000 years old, even after a lifetime as a monk, he's still got the skills and the instincts he needs to take down Mr Crazy. Cahill may have had military training, but that training didn't include a sword. The man who was weaned on Fiore dei Liberi whups up on the guy with the psychosis.

                                I think Timon will take it. While Cahill is no doubt more skilled with weapons and fighting, he has no idea just what immortality means. While he will kill Timon a few times, he nevers chops his head off. Timon eventually beheads Cahill. With this, Timon becomes considerably more dangerous by gaining Cahill's fighting knowledge. Timon also gets a bit of Cahill's crazy. Timon begins to hear voices. He is becoming increasingly concerned he has somehow lost favor with the almighty. This will effect him in coming fights. Whenever he senses another immortal, he pleads with his god to not force him to kill again.

                                  I prefer to disagree here. Cahill is a CHILD. He has no Immortal continuity, no strength, no WEIGHT, as such. Cahill's is too "small" to have an effect on Timon.

                                  Reno is chasing Cordoza around an airport. Fight spills out onto the runway. Reno trips and ends up in flying into the engine of an airplane which cuts him to pieces. Cordoza wins.

                                    I like this narrative where Timon is running around in present day and gets a few key beheadings and becomes powerful and wins the prize. lol
