Each Tuesday the competitors will be announced and voting will open. Every vote a story receives counts as one point.
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday the competitors will each roll a twenty-sided die. The resulting number of points will be added to their own score. I will update the scores via a comment on the blog post and social media.
Voting closes on Sunday at midnight MST.
Monday the winner (the story with the highest score) will be announced and move on to the next round.
Story Title: A Mother Unicorn’s Advice to Her Daughter
Author: J. J. Roth
Equine Combatant’s Name: Mother “Badass” Unicorn
Special Attacks: Self-esteem (psychic) – her certainty of herself makes her enemy doubtful and easier to attack; Mother-flurry (dark) – she talks at her quarry, giving them unsolicited advice until they flee for their lives
Special Defences: Camouflage (usable in forests only), stealth, running away at high speeds
Story Title: Riders in the Sky
Author: V. F. LeSann
Equine Combatant’s Name): Peregrine
Species: Damned soul
Special Attacks: Iron hooves that get red-hot for kick attack. Stubborn horse-logic. Flame mane and tail for striking. Occasionally bursts into flame and moves at ghost-speed. He will bite. Plus when fighting demons.
Special Defences: Soul-bound and telepathically linked with a fully-armed and generally cranky Rider. Shared health pool with the Rider. Can look in someone’s eyes and judge the weight of their souls. He is not considered a living creature (damned/undead)
How to Vote:
Comment on this blog post with the title of the story you are voting for.
For example, if this week’s competitors were:
Star Wars vs. Star Trek
and you wanted to vote for Star Trekyou would leave a comment that said, “I vote for Star Trek.”
It’s just that easy.
You may vote once each round, and each vote enters your name into a draw to win an awesome book (details here) so you could win alongside your favourite equine!
