    Greetings friends, and welcome to The Ever Gate!
    Here are the rules if you don’t already know them:
    You enter the trial with one handkerchiefs, (which I will also call flags) a small dagger, and whatever your talent is! This flag will be on your right ankle or foot and should stay there, unless someone steals and drops it, or you do. In this…[Read more]

        So do we just enter or whatever?

          uraza169 replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

          Yep! Please announce yourself whenever you enter a new area, as well as when you leave. Good luck!

          *I take the water I collected and freeze it under your feet, making you slip and fall on your head* I wouldn’t be so sure about that…

          Aww so sad! *I dry the waer from the blood to stop the bleeding quickly. I take some water from the trees and air and condense it into fog so I can have the element of surprise when I come up behind you holding a dagger to your kneck* Lets see if you can get out of this one

          ms-granger replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

          I mean, you can sorta be in two places at once? There isn’t exactly a rule against it. Just know that if you get eliminated you can’t be in any of the places, so if you’re fighting two people at once in different sections, they’ll both win, in a way, if only one grabs your flag. So I recommend being in one place?

          Wonderful! Though the lasting hurt of the insults hurled at you in German accents by the snakes may linger in the back of your mind for the rest of eternity, slowly festering and consuming your every waking moment until your brain can only focus on the trauma and pain of that moment

        Current of what Delilah? My talent is water manipulation, I was using a current of water. I assume you also don’t have water manipulation.

          delilahkitty replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

          A current of water! And yes, I technically do, but I’m not using it for the Trial. *Grins craftily as much as a current of water can* But with your hydrokinesis in mind-*The water current changes to a current of air and lashes you in the face, then streaks downward for your boot, becoming invisible on the way*

        Well I mean you can clear it if it’s in a large area, but if it’s concentrated around a small space, you can’t. Like if it’s around your body or face (that only lasts for 1 minute though aka you comment and then I comment and it’s over)

        ms-granger replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

        Well, PrincezzDot hasn’t been involved in this fight at all recently (you can attack her if you’d like but you can’t take her flag if she doesn’t respond) and I’m going to have to say Poet undid your original attack, so you’ll have to start over. This is a very entertaining fight though.

        A wave of water is an inanimate object, you can’t shapeshifter into that. Poet and I have already told you on another post, you can’t do all this. You can’t be wind, you can’t be water, or fire, you can be animals. And you can’t be invisible, because thats not your talent. So I don’t know where the troops of invisible lions came from

        You haven’t answered our question though, which is that you’re being completely unfair. You can’t control/be wind, and water and summon troops of invisible lions. You don’t have invisibility, you don’t have water control, you don’t have wind control. You have shapeshifting.

          delilahkitty replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

          I’m sorry, I should’ve elaborated: I call it shapeshifting, but it’s actually not; my bio says ‘changing appearance’ and that’s what it’s always been. To be honest: I have NO idea why I call it hapeshifting at all, because it is not. 🤔

          kittybp2 replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

          How can you do that when I’m not even close to you, and you can’t see me?
          *I de-mogrify and slash at your arm with my dagger*

        princezzdot replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

        *I drop my smoke bomb blinding Bailey and getting me two points while I make a whirlpool of water that ***** her in and traps her*

          kittybp2 replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

          *I turn the water into a blanket of fog and disperse it throughout the area. I stun @/princezzdot with a stun spell and reach/grab her flag*
          Poet, can I know what exactly your power is? The one that you put in the description for the forms.

        You can’t eat my flag, that’s only your second comment Bailey

          kittybp2 replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

          It’s my 3rd actually
          -lights out
          -slash at you
          -And stun spell

          ms-granger replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

          I’ll vote that PrincezzDot defended your attack, Bailey, and therefore you cannot take her flag but you can just continue from her getting stunned

          kittybp2 replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

          But lights out was for the whole area
          That’s how it works in the books?
          I’m not trying to argue, but can you explain more please?

        kittybp2 replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

        I was talking to Erin, but fine.
        It’s still dark anyways. No one ever made it light.
        *I approach Zeze as she (is that your pronouns?) is getting up, with my dagger out*

        princezzdot replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

        (Do you want to fight without talents? I would prefer that but I don’t really care)
        *I also hold out my dagger *

          princezzdot replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

          *I light my finger glow lighting my face in a dark purple glow*

          kittybp2 replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

          Sure, we can do that! Will we still morgrify and do other spells? (Pause in the battle till we talk about this)

        ms-granger replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

        Re: Bailey
        You did make your first comment when you slashed at her, and then she used her smoke bomb and whirlpool, defending that attack. Then you used the fog, so now she would need a chance to defend from the fog and stun attack before you could take her flag. (Stun spells are kinda no fun.)

          kittybp2 replied 6 months, 1 week ago

          You do know that you can fight two people at the same time?
          Just if you get out from the other fight, you can’t continue here. You just disappear.

          kittybp2 replied 6 months, 1 week ago

          *I sigh*
          Okay

          delilahkitty replied 6 months, 1 week ago

          I’M STILL IN

          *I smile*

        ms-granger replied 6 months, 1 week ago

        Okay, I think Bailey is still in. The snakes were a defense to the spear/large stick attack, which Poet deflected, but had to resort to a different strategy to get her out. You can continue from lack of oxygen/doubled over and whatever else was in that comment.

          kittybp2 replied 6 months, 1 week ago

          *I pop up* I’m good! Poet’s attack didn’t affect me at all! Just kidding *I cough one last time*
          *I ice Poet’s lips and mouth so she can’t open them or breathe. As she tries to spell them/pry them open (she can’t) and is panicking from loss of air, I run over and grab her flag, dropping it onto the ground*

          ms-granger replied 6 months, 1 week ago

          Actually, I think Poet’s still in. You have to give her a chance to try and get her breath back, and if she doesn’t, you can eliminate her.

          princezzdot replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

          Do you want to start Elvia?

          *i use my fingerglow to enlarge the pumpkin and send it into the air, bewitching it to go crashing into @/princezzdot ‘s head* sure!

        ms-granger replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

        Y’all do know you don’t have to ask someone’s permission to fight them and can just attack, right? I was not expecting this level of civility in a fight.

          princezzdot replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

          It’s a bad habit
          *I move to the side letting the pumpkin smash into the tree behind. A tide of water crashed into Elvia as I rise on a wave above her*

          Wait, I just saw Outdoorpoet’s comment, so does that mean this match is over?

          sandol replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

          (I deleted my earlier comment by accident, but I guess it’ll be better to forget it happened since you seem to be fighting Outdoorpoet right now)

        ms-granger replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

        Post just made their first move towards PrincezzDot’s flag, both are still in the game.

          ms-granger replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

          Also, Sandol, if you haven’t checked out the picnic post recently i suggest you do.

          Oh okay. Thanks Erin!

          ms-granger replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

          She had a pretty dramatic retaliation though. If the other player retaliates preventing your original attack, you can’t steal their flag.

        ms-granger replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

        I mean. That’s kind of the difficult part. I would say something that stops you from stealing your flag, like taking it back or moving their foot, and then either sprinting away to another area of the forest, morgrifying and getting away, or counter attacking with something that would turn the tide in their favor, like, I don’t know, att…[Read more]

          Yeah sure, until Poet comes back at least.
          (Or we can just fight here cause I don’t want to go looking for the sleeping willows post)

          I’m in again?

        Either way is fine, just make your decision fast.

        ms-granger replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

        …wow. Um, yeah, I’m gonna have to give that one to Poet. *summons a stretcher* Because otherwise you might have killed her. PrincezzDot, you may return at 5:00 AM Eastern Time tomorrow, and when you do, there’s a prize in the picnic section for you.

        princezzdot replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

        Did you tag me somewhere Erin? I saw you did, but when I clicked on the notification it just took me to my mentions

          I think Delilah adequately defended your first attack, so I’ll have to say no, but you can go from “Delilah stuck in currents” “PrincezzDot healing burns”

        @sandol !
        You won a Titanium shield! Very handy. Can probably block dagger strikes fairly easily, not too heavy, and if you use it, you earn 2 points!

          Mogrif ovation is indeed allowed

          ladyofthebooksge replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

        ms-granger replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

        Another prize goes to @pastelmaddiearts !!
        You win a single-use teleportation program! *hands you a small rock* just drop it and imagine where you’d like to go. You get 2 points if you use it.

          delilahkitty replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

          Can I be in again??

        It was like 9:45 mst that you could re-join.

        ms-granger replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

        No one is using their bonuses so my only solution is to give out more. *spins wheel, which is actually just a random number generator* @princezzdot ! You win a smoke bomb! Great for obscuring your escape or whatever else and you get two points for using it.

          ms-granger replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

          Uhhh no, but we can consider that your first comment, then Delilah can reply and then you can steal it if she hasn’t defended.

          Shapeshifting

          ms-granger replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

          I’m also going to step in here and say no invisible (or invincible) lions or summoning gorgons or summoning anything. I think the shifting into a breeze or a water current is okay as long as it’s small, because if she just turned into animals it’d be the same as mogrifying.

        princezzdot replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

        And wind, and water..
        When you shapeshift you can’t turn into in-animate objects like that, and it’s not fair for you to have every talent.

          I appreciate “Hester would survive anything the longest.” It is very true

          pinker13 replied 6 months, 3 weeks ago

          I heard about that too. And Ben Affleck is directing the movie. I’m not sure whether to be excited or nervous or both about it.
          I should really make up my mind about the trial… But let’s face it. I’m not meant to be a fighter, just a watcher. Also, how many people are competing?
          I want to see that.
          Yes, Hester would survive. Very true.
          Oooh,…[Read more]

          Honestly, I’m nervous now. I’ll be excited when we get some real news and release dates and stuff.
          There’s 18 now! And two in the picnic section.
          Oh! Awesome! What did you think? Did you read the rest of the series? I haven’t yet.

          pinker13 replied 6 months, 3 weeks ago

          I feel like the movie should be animation like anime instead of live action, because elves are supposed to be more good looking than humans, and how are they going to do the older elves since they don’t have wrinkles and such?
          Those numbers just make me want to join the picnic section.
          I thought it was good! Who’s your favorite character/s? I have…[Read more]

          ms-granger replied 6 months, 3 weeks ago

          I agree! I also think the 3D style like Tangled and Frozen would work well for them. Especially since most of the character art in Unlocked already looks like that.

          I like Liam. And Zu. But I really like Liam, except for the bit where halfway through the book he develops the habit of calling Ruby “darlin’” and I absolutely hate that for some…[Read more]

          That is true. I really like that art style.
          Interesting. And oof.
          I just realized that I didn’t sign up for the picnic area which means I have to find the posts myself. Am I allowed to comment?

          ms-granger replied 6 months, 2 weeks ago

          Absolutely! They’re all in either my activity or mentions, right at the top.

          pinker13 replied 6 months, 3 weeks ago

          Okay!

        gris replied 6 months, 3 weeks ago

        wait i wasn’t tagged :((

          pinker13 replied 6 months, 3 weeks ago

          Oh. I think you’re only tagged monthly. Would you like to be tagged weekly or biweekly?

        doveys-apprentice replied 6 months, 3 weeks ago

        I love KOTLC 😀
        My week is going ok, I have slightly less school work to do than last week so that constitutes for an at least marginally better week.
        I think Hester or Anadil would be the ones to survive a zombie apocalypse, (although technically all the main characters in OTK already survived a zombie “apocalypse”).

          That’s good!
          *notices everyone has said that* (That is true…)
