Tournament Begins: 201?-??-?? (subject to change)


Once all the participants have signed up, each member will be paired up for the first rounds of the tournament. To play, you must first sign up at and list your username on the list below. Becoming a member of is quick and easy. All you have to do is activate your account through your email address.

As soon as everyone has joined, a bracket will be made and you will be paired with your first opponent. First, you or your opponent will need to create a game. Creating a game is simple. Just enter the name of your opponent in the appropriate section and decide on the "time per move" (preferably 1 day). You can create a game here: (you should probably give [Morgoth] a link to your game once you've started, so he can watch it).

If you enter this tournament, you can win any one of these fine, fabulous prizes:


First place will receive this finely sculpted, golden king.


Second place gets this okay, but not as great, silver bishop.


All participants will get this inexplicably sparkling brick, whether they like it or not.
(If you do not want this brick in your Elfpack house, simply provide your address and we'll promptly deliver a brick through your window.)

If you have any questions, see [Morgoth] or, preferably, send [Stephen] 37 annoying messages in a row.

2011-11-03 [Stephen]: I'll show the Council. :P

2011-11-03 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: †Bloodstained Cross† likes this

2011-11-03 [Stephen]: You do read the forum, even if you never respond to anything! ;)

2011-11-03 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: How do you use that icon >>

2011-11-03 [Stephen]: I have it set as one of my custom emoticons. Same as this.

Moo Cow says..

2011-11-03 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: :Hi! I'm a daughter of a murdered Nigerian king and I need your help to get the money out of the country. I only need $100 for some bribes and then I can transfer $40 000 000 to your account and you can keep 30%!

^this made me giggle

2011-11-03 [Stephen]: xD
Yeah, I liked Hedda's example.

I need to make a "Welcome to Elfpack" emoticon message, too. xP

2011-11-09 [Stephen]: Hey, that reminds me. Welcome message:
Hey there and welcome to Elfpack! =)

Elfpack can seem a little big and confusing to new members at times: If you end up getting lost or confused, you can talk to myself or one of the Council members; we're the staff here and around to help. If you want to look around, I suggest starting at the wiki-page index and going from there. You can also view member houses (presentations) using the option on your right-hand navigation bar.
Once again, welcome to Elfpack and I hope you have fun Elfpacking!
/[Stephen], the Warden

Anyway, back on topic. You need help with the images, Batpenguin? I can ask one of the Graphic Bosses to assist you. This has the go-ahead for being an official contest.

PS: You should get a contractors badge for this.
PSS: You should probably badge yourself and add your name to the page.

2011-11-10 [Morgoth]: NO. The Graphics Bosses are SCUM.

I mean... probably... I don't think I know any of them, really...

2011-11-10 [Stephen]: I like the first place trophy. o3o

I'll mention this to the Graphic Bosses. :P

2011-11-10 [Cerulean Sins]: If you want I'll advertise this contest on the Official Elfpack Facebook Group and on twitter :)

2011-11-10 [Stephen]: Not yet. D:

It's not open for submissions. Wait until things are on Mainstuff before you announce them offsite. ;)

2011-11-10 [Morgoth]: Besides, I don't think I've ever had much trouble advertising my wikis in the past. But whenever it does open, feel free to make a post about it on Facebook.

2011-11-11 [Cerulean Sins]: *smiles* No worries

2011-11-11 [Morgoth]: There doesn't seem to be any text in that official banner...

2011-11-11 [Stephen]: xD

It's just the "placeholder" for an official page banner until we get a real one. Message [Eyes of the Reaper] to request one, or [Bookwyrm]. You can also make one yourself as long as it says "Elfpack Official" someone on it, in a visible location.

2011-11-11 [Morgoth]: NO U

2011-11-13 [Schlachter]: I would like the "erotic" option.

2011-11-13 [Stephen]: Added! ;D

Although I think I stole [Morgoth]'s poll. >.>;
(He should have the privs to steal it back.)

2011-11-13 [Morgoth]: >:|

2011-11-13 [Stephen]: <3? :D

2011-11-29 [Morgoth]: AHEM.

2011-11-29 [Stephen]: We can release this once the graffiti contest winner is chosen. :)

2011-11-29 [Morgoth]: Suuuuuuuure.

2011-11-29 [Schlachter]: That should be me because I picked the right answer.

2012-01-02 [Morgoth]: *violent cough*

2012-01-03 [HeAVenShallBuRN]: *Hands a recola*

2013-01-30 [GlassCasket]: ...

2013-01-30 [Schlachter]: WHY DO I NEVER WIN ANYTHING!?!

2013-01-30 [GlassCasket]: Why do i never not unwin?!?

2013-01-30 [Schlachter]: You just did...

2013-01-31 [Stephen]: This contest.
Really should be released.

2013-01-31 [Morgoth]: I worked real hard on those prizes... :(

2013-01-31 [Morgoth]: Allow the winner to have colors for their house and link to it in an alarm and I think I'll get more contestants.

2013-01-31 [Morgoth]: And eight togs!!

2013-01-31 [Stephen]: o_O

I didn't know this contest was even officially released yet. :P

2013-01-31 [Morgoth]: We need more participants if we're ever gonna get this thing going.

2013-01-31 [GlassCasket]: Hey if vagina bob is down, i'm down

2013-02-01 [Schlachter]: Who is vagina bob?

2013-02-01 [Stephen]: I'd sign up, but I really don't have time. >.<

Mort, if you want put an article about it in the right hand calendar thing, you have the privs for it. :P

2013-02-01 [Morgoth]: But I'm laaaazy! And I have a bunch of other tasks to do that I'm allegedly responsible for. Which I'm still pretty sure you're making up!

2013-02-01 [GlassCasket]: ...If i told you i would have to commit countless murders.

2013-02-01 [Stephen]: I have enough to do without making things up!

Be less lazy. :P

2013-02-01 [Schlachter]: None of you answered my question which is the most important thing.

2013-02-01 [GlassCasket]: I did :D

2013-02-01 [Schlachter]: So? Start hacking? Did your machete break...??!

2013-02-01 [GlassCasket]: I use big sticks, not machetes :P

2013-02-01 [Schlachter]: Whatever gets the job done... blunt or splintered?
My answer?

2013-02-01 [GlassCasket]: yes

2013-02-01 [Schlachter]: ...
* swallows self into an Ouroboros *

2013-08-07 [DeeJay™]: i'm terrible at chess. but i'll give it a g-.. wait, is this thing still on? lol

2013-08-07 [Morgoth]: YES.

2013-08-12 [Stephen]: You should release this, Morty. :P

Just finish the rest of the needed information up and write an article about it in the community news, over the Easter information.

2013-08-12 [Morgoth]: But the information is finished. D:

2013-08-12 [DeeJay™]: erm, btw... what's the difference between a single and a double elimination? is it as simple as it sounds?

2013-08-12 [Morgoth]: Probably. In a single elimination tournament, if you lose once, you're out.

2013-08-12 [DeeJay™]: aaand, you play a different player each game? how does that work, exactly? two 'losers' face-off for a spot in the next round?

2013-08-13 [Morgoth]: Yeah, you play a different player each game, for the most part. There is a chance you may have to face someone twice though. In a double elimination tournament, there are two brackets. When you lose your first game, you get sent to the second bracket. So to lose the tournament, you have to lose twice, once in each bracket.

2013-08-13 [Morgoth]: Like this:


2013-08-13 [Morgoth]: Actually, you could possibly have to play the same person three times. But that's not very likely.

2013-08-13 [Morgoth]: There, every member of Elfpack has now been invited here.

2013-08-13 [DeeJay™]: complicated! but sure, i'll play. and i think the double elimination will let me waste more of someone's time, so let's go for that!

2013-09-30 [GlassCasket]: i win.

2013-12-20 [~Kissed by an Angel~]: id like to sign up!!
