After receiving some notes from the competitors and exchanging conversation with their varying situations, we have decided to extend the deadline for Round 6 by THREE WEEKS! It was decided to offer this lengthy extension to help provide our spectators with the most enjoyable experience possible. And, of course, this consumes their last remaining extension pass, which makes the final Round all that more difficult in the coming month. Good luck, Competitors!
"Remember that when the sun sets, all is not over... because tomorrow, the sun will rise again."
"All remaining competitors, please report to the Hyperion Coliseum for your next Round. Registered staff employees will be on location to offer further instruction."
The few remaining megaphones kept repeating the message as the vacant streets nearby the cordoned disaster from yesterday. Smoke and fire still billowed into the morning skies, as thunderstorms slowly began rolling in from the West. Mixing with the soot and ash, lightning flashed as thunder rolled throughout the empty remains of the Hyperion Conference. A dreary and ominous black rain began to descend upon the scene as the concoction of smoke brewed within the storm, and blanketing the rubble in a horrible moisture of dirt and filth.
"Are you sure this is wise to continue on with the competition? Perhaps it would be best to simply call it quits and resolve the situation ourselves?"
"You know as well as I do these attacks were not simply random. Someone knows. And besides, in my current condition and you simply trying to keep me alive has us both at a disadvantage. We might be able to find the culprit, but none of us left are strong enough to tackle the threat alone.
"I still just don't like thinking that the competition would spiral into another disaster like we see on the news...
"Come on, you know we have enemies still after the corporation. And at least this time, they bad guys were actually after something important."
The host and his companion walk down the steps and avoid the idle debris that litters the stadium in the dimly lit surroundings of the field. There seemed to be quite a commotion happening between a few of them, as there seemed to be reports of some competitors among them having allegedly taken part in the previous disaster that had taken place. However, the host was neither present for the instance that took place, and much of their surveillance equipment was still being salvaged from the wreckage nearby.
Upon stepping foot upon the grass and approaching the few remaining competitions left after the disaster, much of the clamor appeared to have died down as attention was brought before the host. Myrddin glanced over those left and had a tinge of regret for what he was about to announce...
"Ladies and gentlemen, I want to thank the remaining competitors for assembling on such short notice. I understand that in my absence, foul-play was at hand to undermine the establishment of the Hyperion Conference. And because of these selfish acts, many people have suffered greatly.
But the Hyperion Conference was never about a building, or a coliseum. It was about the competitors that took part in the spirit of competition. To better oneself no matter what challenge was brought their way, and make not only a better trainer, but to make you a better person.
However, a greater challenge has been disturbed, and Spirit of Competition still needs satisfaction until a Champion is made. And so Round Six, as Host of the Hyperion Conference, I shall only choose three standing competitors to advance to the Final Round...
The Rules here are simple: One-on-One. Double Battle. No other restriction.
I am only searching for the three most determined to win. How you win... I leave to each of you."
When Myrddin completed his speech to the remaining eight competitors, a blur of blue, holographic light illuminated beside him, revealing to the competitors who their opponents would be:
Janus v Roy
Antony v Knox
Victor v Storm
Miyung v Dyciel (substituting Grave)
Setting and events within the round:
Within the now partially destroyed Apollo Coliseum, the eight competitors remaining are brought to test their skills with one another. However, the inside of the coliseum is shrouded in what looks like a thick miasma. This miasma is (unknowingly) the product of a powerful Night Shade nearby. The effects settle in that skew many perceptions among Judge and Competitor alike. This miasma's effects consist of making those within it see that which they fear within their opponents. There are no bypasses to this effect, so don't even try. Immediate disqualification to those that try to make a bypass within their entry.
Also, as there is a mention of 'thunderstorms,' for clarification, these 'thunderstorms' are created by the continually seeping miasma at this point. It's fogging up the air around Nimbasa and giving it that effect for now.
