24 hours to get those Scribbles in!
A few people have asked me for an extension this round, citing difficulties with timing around other games and activities. Due to the strict weekly schedule, any extension would have to last a full week.

If you would like to delay this round's end by a week, please 😯 Wow this post.

If you would rather the round ended in 12 hours as usual, please 🤔 Thinking this post.

I wanted to get the prompt done in a few hours after having slept, but I'm having an episode of insomnia right now and it'll probably be a while until I can sleep. I will likely only wake up again minutes before or hours after the time has elapsed. If the phase is not extended, I will be unable to take part in it.

The extends have it: the round will close in a week's time, or when the final Scribble comes in - whichever comes first.

If you feel like you could have genuinely benefitted from this delay but already submitted a Scribble, talk to me and I'll try and work something out.

The battles wage on. In the midst of each cascade of blows, as blades of colour strike monolithic hueless entities, winners start to emerge.


Round 3 Submissions have now ended!

It would be wise to first talk about this round's one-week delay. In practice, the majority of Scribblers got their work in before the original deadline, and nearly all of those who used the delay ended up waiting until the very last minute anyway. While I appreciate what was essentially 7 days free time to work on other projects, I won't be granting such an extension again.

However, don't let that take away from this array of action-packed Scribbles! Thank you one more time for this wonderful set of pictures to tickle my eyes and gently caress the part of my brain that enjoys seeing battles.

Round 3 voting is over!

Here we have what could be the cleanest sheet yet. These results are getting pretty tight, though! You'll find yourself up against other Scribblers of similar power, and your matchups will get more and more difficult to vote for as time goes on. Apart from Kingsbourne Sigma, who returned to the ring, and lost just as swiftly. Hopefully it leaving our fight won't have any dire consequences!

Anyway, we got some winners. They get 1 point each! If you lost this round, please don't feel bad. These were some of the closest rounds yet. Well, I guess if knowing you were close to winning makes you feel bad, then don't read this.

 
Top: Winstein, FTG64, Turboo, Goombuigi, Gabumon, Toadbert

Remains of the vanquished beasts lie scattered across the battlefield like splatters of paint. Their forms, unbalanced and without colour, were no match for the combative experts of the Scribble Army, trained in the art of the warrior and wielding tools far beyond previously documented power levels. Before long, the corpses congealed, then combined. Black and white mixed to form very illegal dithering patterns, then drifted into the air. It seemed the pillars had vanished, too. Was the threat bested, once and for all?

In the courtyard of Fort Neverset, the King had faced a battle of his own, flanked by his Kingsbournes. The beast in question, some sort of monochrome horse, was not dithering and withering away. Instead, the deluge of darkness and light came flooding straight through, all the mass of the other beasts, coming here. Divided, the enemy fell. But together...


1663111244760.png

Here be dragons.

The King recognises a true threat when he sees one, especially when it is slowly idling in his own home. He turns to his children.


-CHILDREN I NEED A LITTLE...-
-ANYTHING-
-I NEED A LITTLE ANYTHING RIGHT NOW-
-LITERALLY ANY SINGLE PIECE OF HELP YOU CAN OFFER-


But the Kingsbournes lay still, frozen in fear and, also, from low battery issues. Sigma was nowhere to be seen.

1663111281990.png

-FUCKETH IT-
-EVERYONE IN THE OVEN-
-TIME TO EARN THIS CROWN-


1663111290400.png

-YOU, THE BEAST-
-I KNOW YOU, I KNOW THE HOPE AND THE DARKNESS THAT STAINS YOUR SOUL-
-WHY DO YOU RETURN? VENGEANCE? JEALOUSY?-
-YOUR BLOODLINE WOULD BE ASHAMED IF YOU HAD ANY BLOOD TO CLAIM-


1663111322619.png

-HAVE AT YOU BRO-

The King, of course, was no match for this beast. His strength came not from a percentage, but his people. And, divided as they were by the ferocious efforts of the enemy, his opulent barrage of attacks were for naught. As he grappled with fang, tooth, and nail, the overwhelming force of the beast struck him, to the very essence of his being. That power... used once before. Enough to kill a God. Caged in a prison of tail, wing, and tongue, he prayed for the safety of his children, locked within his core.



It is known that a Scribble Warrior is formed from the three pillars of our society - the black shadow, the white light, and, most importantly, the blood, unique to each Scribble Warrior, that colours the world around them. By pulling at the strings that keep this holy trinity bound to one another, each is forced apart. This effectively tears apart the very soul of the victim.


1663196470427.png


And a King without a soul is just a crown, worth nothing to an invader.

And so ended the reign of the King of Sunset Gold.


1663151285345.png


The King is dead, and his grasp on the stability of his realm dissipates just as quickly. Gold fades to a mere memory of a bygone hue. The sun finally sets. The golden sky recedes, as the stars glow bright, bright enough to fill the atmosphere with blinding light. The black soil spreads, sending dark roots through the terrain until no land stained by colour remains. It's not long until...



The world quickly returns to a simpler form. With no ruler, chaos ensues once more. The world, overtaken by imbalance. Too much light, too much shadow. The only source of hope, of that magical, colourful spirit, lies within the remaining Scribble warriors. They must act, now, despite the sheer size of the enemy, and the unknown realms in which it operates. As sanity becomes a mere notion, it becomes apparent that, truly, anything could happen...

ROUND FOUR is open! A fan favourite returning from last year, KAIZO MARIOWIKI's prompts are randomly selected pages from, well, the wiki! These wacky prompts have been curated to create a diverse mix of unpredictable, but creatively inspiring, nonsense. Watch out, because there's no knowing what kind of prompt you'll end up with!

???????????????????????????????????????????.


Round 4 Submissions have now ended!

Woah! For the first time in Scribble Showdown history, there have been no late submissions, unusable Scribbles, or other slip-ups! That's great! No need for the Kingsbournes any more, surely. Which is good, because they're dead and will never, ever come back. In celebration of your 100% clean sweep, let's have a look at this fresh, wacky, zany set of Scribbles!



Note: Due to xtable, the system used to make these result posts, having literally zero documentation, the captions/scribble titles no longer display directly underneath the scribbles themselves. This is because some of the titles straight up deleted the opponents Scribbles on some clients. I will look into a game mechanic where you can give your scribbles really aggressive titles to debuff your opponents for next year.

THAT WAS REQUIRED TO FACE HIM.

As with a previously vanquished god, this one's bare essence returns to the ground.





Three survivors, protected.





And on the other side of the world...


Another survivor finds another, much older, set of remains.

26 Scribble Warriors.
2 killed rulers, their blood still standing.
4 children.

32 perfectly balanced hues and bloodlines.
