    ----- Introduction -----

    The rebirth began Saturday September 15, 2007, moderated by Jook & MCQuriosity.
    Our mission/goal is to provide the most dedicated outlet for creative writers across the internet.
    This archive is a work in progress.

    ----- Hall of Champions -----

    Our Hall of Champions is a showcase dedicated to the Champions of the Rapmusic Storytelling/Topical League. This has been compiled by MCQuriosity, and has been listed in chronological order beginning with the first RSTL Champion since the league's rebirth. A true Champion should possess all the attributes of a great writer; a Champion shows dedication not only to the growth of the league, but for personal progression, constantly and consistently testing the limits of their own creative minds. Arguably, our Champions reflect the most talented and creative writers of their respective times within this league. We love and appreciate our Champions, and encourage others to strive for what they have achieved.

    End of 2007

    The League is reborn Saturday September 15, 2007.
    Vern Acular defeats DaAlmightyDolla and becomes the first Champion since the rebirth, 10-1.
    Got Life? defeats Vern Acular and fellow contender, LokStock, in a 3way for the title, 5-1-0.

    Eye-Rime defeats Got Life? to become the Champion, 5-2.

    --- Why Season III ended 3 weeks in.. ---


    The 'New' Archives ends here on quite a sour note.

    nah son, Season I Champion and 'winner' of J o o k's $100 prize, turned out to be none other than J o o k himself. This wouldn't be overly controversial if it wasn't for the fact that:
    No-one 'knew' it was J o o k competing, to the point J o o k would flat out refuse that nah son was him.
    This went as far as J o o k having conversations with 'himself' between both accounts.
    It then became clear that J o o k/nah son had been voting on the same battles, thus cheating competitors of the league. Using the multiple accounts against certain competitors and also for his own gain.
    You can find certain details of this in the latter magazines, linked above.

    With J o o k being a moderator that was repsected by people, this really deflated the atmosphere of the league. Corruption was in full effect and it had to end. J o o k was taken off the mod list for the forum and replaced by TheReturn.

    Between the 3 moderators: Quriosirty, TheReturn and myself (Lucifa), we discussed the options we had. TheReturn drew attention to a link Got Life? had posted to an old format used when RIKO and Claus were moderating. This was a divisional format that looked interesting and we began to discuss how we could adapt the structure to run it 'our' way.

    We began Season III with things in the air on what would happen with the league, whether it continued as a seasonal format or changed for the better. As TheReturn ironed out the technical structure, I got to work on how to adapt the format in an interesting fashion to suit the activity levels we get now, compared to the early years of high activity. By Week 2 of Season III we had our ideas down and a solid foundation to go from, and the announcement was made that 'Week 3 would be final week before a restart'.
