Forsake not an old friend; for the new is not comparable to him: a new friend is as new wine; when it is old, thou shalt drink it with pleasure.
To set a gloss on faint deeds, hollow welcomes,
Recanting goodness, sorry ere 'tis shown;
But where there is true friendship, there needs none.
--William Shakespeare, Timon of Athens
But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
--1 Peter 3:14

This is the list of people competing for the jackpot. (The numbers in the parenthesis are how many Tournament Tokens the dude currently has.) Thank you for joining us, and enjoy the ride :D
(10) The Experience
(5) AG Titan
The first challenge was perception and obedience.
+11 Tokens for the folks who took the effort to give me a story--the greatest gift of heritage, eh? +10 Tokens for those who followed the directions I sent in the CM prior to the official thread. +6 for "arriving." +5 Tokens for everybody else, except +2 for those who didn't post in the interest thread but were man enough to admit it. Those in the last category also get my props :D
And the first round!
Round I: Meticulousness and Affability
You have two goals for this round:
Thatﾒs it. Number one is the requirement for moving on to the next round; if you can accomplish sending me a CM with two names, then you automatically get to continue. Number two is the optional ﾓdo it or get punished.ﾔ Simple enough?
Part A. Forming_A_Team
The ability to interact with other players is fundamental in the community world of Carnage Blender, and the Last Blender will certainly be sociable if nothing. To encourage and test your affable, you MUST form a team with two other fellows. However, choose your buddies with this careful warning: should any of your teammates mess up (short of elimination), everybody on the team suffers the same penalties, but the opposite is also true. Your team will share in excellence.
Part B. Doing_Number_One_Correctly
Willing to strive for perfection is the measure of want. How much you try is the only way for me to tell how much you really want this. So you MUST do number one in a correctly to prove that you deserve the 20M+ in prizes; it is not difficult, or overly complicated, but it is specific. If either you or your teammates are lazy or sloppy in any manner, you will be taking a Token penalty for the rest of the tournament. To put it in another way, you_will_earn_your_second_chance. Is this agreeable?
- You will send me a chatmail in the following format:
"My teammates will be [name] and [name]."
- In place of [name], you will have the two contestant's names spelled correctly, case sensitive.
- Likewise, your proposed teammates will have to do the same, putting your name and the name of the third wheel.
And that is it! Easy enough, I hope. When you and your two mates all send me the chatmail, I will mark your names off the list. And I will try to keep the available pool of un-partied players updated every twelve hours. You_have_48_hours as of now to make sure your name is on that list. If not, then "enter reality show eliminated catch phrase here." Have fun :D
