The music is hypnotic. The lights are almost narcotic. The performer...larger than life. That is until a fight breaks out and two combatants take the stage. Security better back down; this is not the time to be brave. Get out your cameras folks, because tonight is going to be a night you'll never forget.
“Are they serious?” Karen says aloud to the cameras watching her every move. Meanwhile, a baying crowd of fight fans hoot and holler ready to see blood. “Seriously…this..is strange.” She finishes. As she talks to her lupine companion, Robert, she leans over the edge of a concert stage located in Gethed Circle in lower Lorin, Khazan. “It is a bit odd, but I’m assuming they are trying to go for a real street fight sort of feel here.” He replies. She nods in agreement. As she rises, a feeling of dread also rises from within her as a massive shadow envelops her and Rob. Both turn quickly to find a full sized bear with stripes like a tiger leering at them menacingly. Rob growls and Karen assumes a fighting stance.
Casually, the bear walks away and goes to his corner of the stage where he sits patiently. “What in creation!?! I’m fighting a bear!” Rob smiles and grabs her shoulder. “You train with a wolf?” Her face askews. “True.” Rob begins to leave the stage and gives one last word of advice. “Just don’t call him honey.” Karen’s face drops and she sighs, “That sucked.” Suddenly, a gigantic display screen is lowered from above. With a quick flicker, the night’s commentators appear.

Kabuki: I’m sorry madam president; I don’t follow…what exactly is a Poke…
Doc Velocity: GOTTA CATCH EM ALL!! *Doc then proceeds to throw her emptied bucket of chicken at the bear. Through some sort of strange Khazanian magic, it leaves the screen and hits the bear.* Uh oh…I believe that made him mad.
Kabuki: I believe it did. Now he’s looking over here.
Doc Velocity: FIGHT!!
Rules: The first round is based completely on powers. Each fighter can debate on why they think their fighter would win based on the powers they have. PLEASE TAKE THE ENVIRONMENT INTO CONSIDERATION. This is a good opportunity for some of the more experienced FPLers to help new users understand the powers and how we usually use them or how they can be used creatively in combination with each other. If the competitors would like, they can RP their fight.
Voting: This round will be determined by Poll. Please try not to vote on the round until you have truly heard all arguments and determined a winner based solely on fighting skills.
