Tournament Basic Info
Benoit's amazing terrain graciously donated to the cause:
|Such a nice, beautiful setup of Benoit's Vault of the Spider Queen terrain. We used the shining gold pipe cleaner ring to denote which dungeoneer carried Lolth's Egg, while the player held a lilac-colored plastic Easter egg. Glass beads were dropped in cups to record number of deaths, while traditional colored pipe cleaners were wrapped around the minis to denote which team they belonged to.|

|Defeated teams from the Entry Rounds were given the privilege of playtesting FTDM's newest map, E5M4: Carbon Freeze while the semifinals raged on behind them.|
|The poster size tournament ladder is filled in with the names of the defeated and the victorious.|
|The epic three-team battle continues as twelve dungeoneers duke it out against each other simultaneously.|
|Red Bulls were given freely, but only to those who would roll their dice faster.|
At the other end of the room, Big Jim's Sons are unceremoniously splattered by Don't Make This Weird.
|The fighting stays mostly confined to the bottom two floors, Don't Make This Weird trying to force the tide of battle there to capitalize on their forced movement and prone-ing capabilities.|
|"See this guy I'm pointing to? Dead."|
The use of tiers for this terrain is perfect and expresses the core concept beautifully.
|The end scene of the entire tournament. If we could only see the true carnage, dungeoneers knee deep in the dead. MHMSE? clinches victory for a second year in a row with a solid 21-16 score. Congratulations!!!|
|The tournament ladder is updated with finality, Moose Hockey Maple Syrup, Eh? once again taking the championship and establishing a dynasty of triumph.|
|"We're #1, two years running."|
Immediately beforehand, no shit, a rousing rendition of O Canada is sung by the members of MHMSE?, both in English and in French. You can expect to see that video as well.
|Marc and Derek, stalwart defenders of Canada's |
|Team Moose Hockey Maple Syrup, Eh?|
