    WATER, FIRE, & WOOD



    It wasn't much longer after Josephine's untimely elimination from the game that you
    were off and about to another chamber deeper into the catacombs of the cavern you
    had been trapped in for - oh God, how long have you been down here, even? When
    were you even taken from the Earth? Did anyone miss you? A slurry of questions
    flooded your brain before promptly escaping as you entered the newest room.

    Lanterns filled the ceiling of the room, casting an eerie yet bright warm light across
    the other participants. The shadows it created were almost haunting as they cast
    far up the walls around you. Things had been eerie within themselves as the game
    had progressed, so maybe you were getting paranoid. Your eyes met with a couple
    other participants, but your dropped your head to your chest. Things were still
    uncomfortable, they always were. Nobody quite knew what was going on yet.


    The hooded figure entered from the opposite side of the room. "Good morning,
    participants. The game is certainly afoot at this point as we've now lost four
    members in the journey. As always, one more of you will fall this round, and
    the rest will continue on in the process. Without further ado, I'll announce your
    teams for the upcoming round, which may look slightly familiar to you . . .
    "

    Since both of your original teammates from the third round have been eliminated,
    you have been consolidated into a team together. Congratulations?




    Now that your teams have been announced, I'll reveal the game we will be playing
    for the round and how this round will work. The reality show this week is . . .

      Spoiler:  
    ENDURANCE

    Obviously there are some things here that must change. The first thing is that only
    one person will be going home this round, as opposed to two so keep that in mind.

    First and foremost, Lura & Prudence as the duo which contains the last round's
    winner (and happens to be both of them) will post in the thread which team they
    wish to give the Samadhi. This will give that team a disadvantage in the upcoming
    Temple Mission. Then, each team will participate in the Temple Mission.

    The winning team at the Temple Mission will select two other duos to head to the
    Temple of Fate. The Temple of Fate will be held between these two teams in a
    luck game of "Water, Wood, and Fire" which is similar to Rock, Paper, Scissors. The
    first team to score three will be deemed the winners of the Temple of Fate and
    return to the game shortly. This leaves one duo left that is in danger.

    The two members of this duo will then move to become nominees for the round.
    Every other player will then vote on which of the two nominees they want to see
    eliminated from the game. In the event of a tie, the winning duo from the Temple
    Mission will vote together to cast the tiebreaking vote.

    If there are any questions, please contact me immediately.

    If there is not, then the Blue team may make their decision.

    CHALLENGE ► HALL OF THE LIVING & DEAD
    Round Theme: Endurance



    In this challenge, you will be competing as a duo with your respective partner from
    your team. You will head down another hallways - as you can see, we quite enjoy
    them. There will be eight portraits in there, which might look a little misshapen,
    if you will. Each of these portraits will contain parts of all the players that had been
    in this journey from the beginning. It will be your job to figure out which players
    are in each portrait using your observation skills and keen eye.

    More details are below. We wish you the best of luck.





    xxxxxx
    xxxxxx
    xxxxxx


    One member of each duo will be sent a Private Message containing four portraits,
    while the other will receive the other four portraits. Each portrait will contain four
    players of the game in some form - whether it be the base, eyes, nose, hair, etc.
    Each player is also used twice throughout the eight portraits.

    Time will be separated between each portion of the challenge. However, communication
    is allowed between partners
    during the challenge. You may also work on the challenge
    together
    , if you so wish as it may help you to deduce who has been used twice or not
    at all yet in your figuring process. Your goal is to simply deduce the four players that
    are pictured in each photograph
    . The team that gets the most correct will win.

    In the event that there is a tie for the team that has the most correct, then the team
    with the quickest time will be deemed the winners of the challenge, having the chance
    to send two teams to the Temple of Fate. This is where the Samadhi comes into play,
    however. The Blue team has informed me that they are choosing to give the Samadhi
    to the Purple duo. You guys will have two minutes added to your final time.

    If there are any questions, you may ask me whenever you so please. You will have
    48 hours to complete the mission and results will be posted once I've received the
    submissions from everyone. The challenge will be sent out later this evening.

    Round Theme: Endurance



    The teams have completed their challenge and now we will reveal the team that has
    done the best on the challenge will be the winners and can select two other duos to
    attend the Temple of Fate, where one team will win and the other will become the
    pair of nominees that will ultimately face elimination. First, let's take a look at the
    series of portraits you were faced with and what the answers were.

    RED WINS THE CHALLENGE!

    The room looks around, stunned that the two ladies pulled off a perfect
    score. You're not even quite sure how they managed to do it. They're
    now in charge of sending two teams to the Temple of Fate, and you feel
    a pit in the bottom of your stomach. Who would they send?




    Clara & Louise, you are now tasked with sending two teams to the Temple
    of Fate - where they will participate in a game of Water, Fire, and Wood.
    One of these teams will win and return to the game, while the losing team
    will become the nominees and face a vote against one another.

    You must nominate two of the following teams:
    Yellow: Theodore (nathaniel) & Robert (CupidStunt)
    Green: Brantley (betinez) & Michael (Stevenacious)
    Blue: Lura (NomEstLuis) & Prudence (eagle2ch)
    Purple: Cliff (abstractfierce) & Jeffrey (SoAndSo)
    Black: Gail (VanityEgo) & Thomas (Estquer)

    Please post your decision within 24 hours.

    Me and Clara have decided to send the teams with the lowest scores to the Temple of Fate. I'm sorry Green Team and Purple Team.

    TEMPLE OF FATE ► WATER FIRE WOOD



    vs






    Welcome Purple and Green teams to the Temple of Fate. The four of you
    will be competing in a "challenge" of sorts. This is to determine how well
    you can figure out what your opponent is going to do. This is similar to
    the classic game, "Rock, Paper, Scissors" but instead we will be using the
    elements of Fire, Water, and Wood to play the game.

    In this game, Fire burns Wood, Wood floats on Water, and Water douses
    fire. We will be playing five rounds. The first to three will be deemed the
    winning duo and return to the game while the other two will become the
    two nominees where one will be eliminated from the game and the other
    player will continue on in this journey.

    You will receive a Private Message with fifteen rounds, which are used in
    the event that you were to tie with the same element. Each of you will
    receive this Private Message, but I will only accept the first submission
    from each duo. You will have 24 Hours to return this submission.

    Good luck boys.

    The results are in. As I stated, I would accept the first submission from
    each duo that I received. Let's take a look at the results coming up.

    Round One:
      Spoiler:  
    Green selects Fire
    Purple selects Water

    Purple scores the first point.

    Round Two:
      Spoiler:  
    Green selects Water
    Purple selects Water

    Nobody scores, Purple leads 1-0

    Round Three:
      Spoiler:  
    Green selects Wood
    Purple selects Water

    Green scores, all tied up

    Round Four:
      Spoiler:  
    Green selects Fire
    Purple selects Water

    Purple scores the third point and leads 2-1

    Round Five:
      Spoiler:  
    Green selects Water
    Purple selects Water

    Nobody scores, Purple still leads

    Round Six:
      Spoiler:  
    Green selects Wood
    Purple selects Water

    Green scores and we're all tied up again. Next point wins.

    Round Seven:
      Spoiler:  
    Green selects Fire
    Purple selects Water

    PURPLE WINS THE TEMPLE OF FATE

    Congratulations Purple, you guys are the winners of the Temple of Fate
    and can return back to the others. Unfortunately for the Green team,
    you have become the nominees for the round and will shortly face a
    vote where one of you will be eliminated from the journey.

    THE ELIMINATION CHAMBER ► AN IMPENDING VOTE



    You enter the Elimination chamber and see two seats in the center of a circle.
    It's not long before Brantley and Michael are seated. The group was going to
    vote one of them out of the journey. It was a weird process, dissimilar to the
    one earlier when the Gold team had to choose one of their own to eliminate.

    Brantley and Michael, as the losers of the Temple of Fate, will face a vote to
    eliminate. Everyone else, except for the winners of the first mission, will vote
    to eliminate either Brantley or Michael. The person with the most votes will
    be removed from the game. In the event of a tie, the winners of the Temple
    Mission will be used as the tiebreaking vote. You will receive your voting
    Private Message in a short moment and will cast your vote to eliminate one
    of the two nominees. You will have 24 Hours to cast your vote.

    THE ELIMINATION CHAMBER



    The two sit before you in a pair of chairs. You notice as sweat fall from their
    brows. One of them is leaving tonight and it's a feeling that is so surreal. You
    just wait until the announcement comes through. You don't even know what
    to expect anymore. Who is it going to be? Why them?

    YOU HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED FROM THE JOURNEY

    Brantley looks as though he'd fallen asleep in his chair. He's silent, his arm
    slumps to his side. Michael glances over, and feels a moment of relief.

    The robed figure rushes to his side once more and then darkness fills the room
    before the light returns. Brantley and the robed figure are nowhere to be seen.
    It marked the end of the round, and it was clear that you'd have to move along.
