Steel clashes with steel. Joan of Arc seems to be having trouble with Attila's strength. The Hun raises his legendary blade... *Squensh* Ladies and gentlemen, your winner by beheadment is Attila the Hun!

Our next match should prove just, if not more exciting than the previous two. Let me introduce or next two warriors.

Miyamoto Musashi: Miyamoto Musashi (Œm±¾ ÎäÊi?) (c. 1584¨CJune 13 (Japanese calendar: May 19), 1645), also known as Shinmen Takez¨­, Miyamoto Bennosuke, or by his Buddhist name Niten D¨­raku, was a Japanese swordsman famed for his duels and distinctive style. Musashi, as he was often simply known, became renowned through stories of his excellent swordsmanship in numerous duels, even from a very young age. He was the founder of the Hy¨­h¨­ Niten Ichi-ry¨± or Niten-ry¨± style of swordsmanship and the author of The Book of Five Rings (Îå݆•ø, Go Rin No Sho?), a book on strategy, tactics, and philosophy that is still studied today. Miyamoto Musashi is widely reguarded as the greatest samurai and swordsman in Japanese history.

Sir William Wallace: Sir William Wallace (Scottish Gaelic: Uilleam Uallas; 1272 ¨C 23 August 1305) was a Scottish knight and landowner who is known for leading a resistance during the Wars of Scottish Independence and is today remembered as a patriot and national hero.

Along with Andrew Moray, he defeated an English army at Stirling, and became Guardian of Scotland, serving until his defeat at the Battle of Falkirk. After several years in hiding, Wallace was eventually found and captured in Robroyston near Glasgow and handed over to Edward I of England ("Longshanks"), who had him executed for treason.

Wallace was the inspiration for the poem, The Acts and Deeds of Sir William Wallace, Knight of Elderslie, by the 15th-century minstrel, Blind Harry and this poem subsequently became the basis of Randall Wallace's screenplay for the 1995 film Braveheart

Which is the better swordsman? (I want serious answers Marvel Man and Surfer! dry.gif)

Confirmed round 2 fights: King Leonidas vs. Attila the Hun

Points:


'I'm going to die; if this wasteland doesn't kill me the Avatars will. I'm the last Technomancer; as I go so goes my culture.' The thought was serene, not fearful at all. If he was going to die, he'd die fighting; he'd make sure that the Technomancers were never forgotten. Morshan Sakru: The Last Technomancer would be a name all Avatar would shutter at the thought of for etenity. Morshan now knew what happened to a man who had nothing left to live for but vengence: he became a monster.

The Scots own all! smile.gif Voted. Actually, he's not brash, he's a good fighter with the sword.

If he wasn't skilled with a blade he wouldn't be here. However Musashi's credentials are a bit more impressive than those of William Wallace now that I look at it.

Why would you do that to William Wallace? Miyamoto will slice him to ribbons.

That's because everybody is voting on Braveheart. Miyamoto's nickname is the "Sword Saint". He's often considered the greatest swordsman of all time. I think Wallace is awesome, but Miyamoto is on a whole nother level.

Well, I'd been waiting for more votes to cancel out fanboys, it worked; I'll get the results up soon.
