Clash of the Kingdom Rushers: Rick Riordan

by Manijure » Tue Jul 05, 2016 6:05 pm

Considering this as a sub-topic for "THIS IS WARRRRRRRRR", I would formally like to announce a battle of the books in the forums: Rick Riordan style!

I have yet to form a set of rules of conditions, so the clash won't start yet. However, I am open to any ideas how you guys want to approach this, if you have any.

I will represent BBB's squad (the best), while Juice Box will represent her own (not the best). However, if any Percy Jackson lovers want to join any particular side for this gladiator match, feel free to jump aboard. Just be sure you pick the right side. ;)

Once the rules and conditions are set, Juice Box and I will set an official date for the battle. Similar to the Town vs. Mafia, we'll probably need a mediator to help run the match smoothly, so let us know if you're interested.

By the gods, this will be interesting. :)

Team BBB
Big Bad Bug: Typhon
Manijure: Frank/Kronos

Team JB
Juice Box: Percy
magicmetal03: Jason/Piper
AerisDraco: Leo/Fenris Wolf
The Kingmaker: Nico/Apophis
warbot1000: Julius
RZRider: Poseidon

I GET DIBS ON USING VIRIA'S PICTURES TO MY ADVANTAGE. THAT HAS BEEN DECREED AND IS FINAL.

Also, if this becomes a Demigod VS Demigod showdown (though highly unlikely), dibs on having Percy on my side! Called it, nothing you can do about it.

Joke's on you: if that were the case, he would be my last choice pick. I rarely root for the main character in a story as much as I do for his or her supporting allies. Call me a sympathizer for secondary characters if you will.

I'd probably pick Nico and Frank, because hey, you can't beat someone who can raise the dead or is an animal shape-shifter. Your move, Percy.

Can I use River Styx Percy? :b

And just so you know, Percy is so OP that people literally think he's a god. When he entered the Roman camp, they thought both Percy AND Juno were Olympians. He's more powerful than Jason, and probably most of the other Seven combined.

And don't forget how he killed and almost killed basically a ton of gods, titans and giants. Most of them singlehandedly :b . How can you possibly hope to fight a God-Killer with a shapeshifting elephant?

First off, I'm siding with JB.
I would pick Leo or Annabeth. Wisdom/machinery is cool.

I would choose Nico DiAngelo because I want to be morally complex with a troubled past and an uncertain future with a damaging reluctance to face some truths. But that's who I want to be.

Who I actually am is Annabeth Chase because I'm quite booky and insulated and very good at the thing so choose to be good at.

Edit: Purely because Aeris Ninjaposted me, I guess I'll have to actually choose Nico

*cough**cough*Called it first.*cough**cough*

Just kidding, I'll let it slide. Then again, I said "probably," so it might have been vague. Besides, Frank is awesome in his own right. If I could turn into a dragon, I'd be really hyped.

Eh, I have moral complexity and sexuality based character revelations that make sense and don't seem shoehorned in for representation (looking at you JK) - beat that :P

According to my highly accurate Tumblr sources, the proper ship name for Jason and Piper is "Jasper." Jiper sounds like what babies wear.

Still haven't developed the rules/conditions yet (will be soon), but I think based on our replies, it'll have something to do with the characters we've picked. As I mentioned before, if you have anything cool you want to bring to the table, I'm all ears.

Oh, and on the subject of some of you picking more than one character, I'll also pick the one character you guys should have picked: Kronos. Prepare to get steamrolled by his titanly awesomeness.

Wasn't it established that this was Demigod VS Demigod, though? Why not just go Luke Castellan?

Not like it'll matter since Percy's still stronger than everyone...

It was something you suggested, and I think not limiting the pool to just demigods is better, as it gives more choices, in addition to being far more interesting.

And Kronos is a far more interesting character than Luke. Luke and Kronos are hardly the same person, and obviously the evil Titan wins. It's good to be bad.

But it's dangerous to go alone. You need to take our side.
