Do you remember last year, when Suvudu.com held their Science Fiction/Fantasy cage match? You know, the one Rand al'Thor won? Well, the 2011 cage match starts right now. Guess who's on the bracket? Our dear friend, Vin.

Vin's first opponent is from Logen Ninefingers, from the First Law Trilogy. But come on. Vin + atium? Yeah, I think she beats a barbarian, even atium-less. You should go vote for her. Have multiple computers? Maybe a cell phone with internet capabilities? Go vote for her again. This match ends on Thursday!

Her opponent after Logen will be either Jacob Black or Eric Northman. I'm kind of hoping Jacob wins that one, so we can see Vin utterly destroy the werewolf.

You can see the entire bracket here: http://suvudu.com/2011/03/your-2011-cage-match-contenders-video.html


I am excited to announce that blogs are now available on 17th Shard! They aren't skinned 100% yet, so please keep in mind that the design is a work in progress, but we've fixed the whole "lack of a background" problem that was plaguing us before. To start a blog of your very own, go into your drop-down menu (the one next to your avatar in the top right corner of the page) and select "My Blog," then follow the prompts. Or you can click on the tab labeled "Blogs" at the top of the site to see what other members are writing.

Enjoy, and happy blogging!
