    1. Intro


    Welcome back everyone to the next edition of the RSTL Magazine. This is the week 34 edition and things have seemed to have died down. We have a bunch of no shows and people still aren’t voting like they should. Instead of an interview, I will be dropping a list of ‘faggots’ in this league and why they are faggots so stay tuned.

    2. Recap

    This week we had a nice set of matches that had a lot of potential of being great. Yet, no shows seem to have riddled this week’s matchup.

    MordridDeschain – This was a great verse and I wish your opponent wasn’t a coward and showed up to battle you. You have several good things with this verse such as the nice rhyming and good flow. The story was nicely told and had good use of imagery. I hope you show up next week to face your opponent. This should be an interesting match-up.

    Got life? – your verse was ok

    Killa – glad you avoided a no-show

    Soull vs oNe – This match up was nice even match with your completely different writers. Soull cleaned up a lot of his previous mistake and regained his form as a writer. His verse was nicely written yet the story wasn’t as entertaining as it could’ve been, possibly due to lack of imagery. oNe wrote a verse that was missing some of the mechanics yet the story was nicely told with good imagery. This match-up was even all the way till the end but oNe ended up with the 3-2 victory.

    icon vs. T.a.C – This match-up was interesting to read. I did have an issue with the length of both of their lines but the readers didn’t seem to mind too much. T.a.C’s story was well-written but the story seemed to lack in areas while icon wrote a very nice story but the mechanics were lacking. This match was pretty interesting since both writers chose the same topic which made it easier for the readers to determine the winner and this week, story won which gave icon the 2-1 victory over T.a.C.

    Urizen vs. Memento – This match-up was a nice read. Both writers had very good stories but this match-up ended up being determined by mechanics. Urizen’s verse rhymed nicely but the line length hurt his flow at times. While Memento’s verse flowed nicely and had good rhyming. Memento’s verse also had great imagery which seemed to ice the cake in this match-up and gave him a 3-1 victory over Urizen.

    ShadowWarriorfs vs. Atreyu – This championship match had high expectations from the reader and both delivered nicely however seemed to be in different areas. Shadow had the mechanics but Atreyu had the story and word play in this matchup. The readers liked both verse but ended up taking story over mechanics and gave Atreyu the 2-1 victory over shadow to gain the RSTL Championship. Congratulations to Atreyu on the win [kat][kat][kat][​IMG] [kat][kat][kat]

    3. Battle of the Week
    Urizen

    Visions of the future

    With my entire might, all this white I must fight
    This spec of light, made the color spectrum seem right
    In my mind it shines so bright
    The space for errors is so tight
    Envision it beautifully, vividly depicting every detail
    Now getting every trail and stroke on without fail
    That’s the trial, the test I must best without rest
    Sleep will dull my inspiration, ruin my interest
    A world to create, a universe to illustrate
    But the state of my creative gate has been blocked of late
    I’m demonstrating, what they saying is a painters block
    But the image I got, won’t stop pounding the lock
    The sheer bliss and excitement I would feel
    When this kiss of mental colors will be real
    When the paint has stained the canvas and my vision remained
    As true as my mind’s eye strained itself to ensure it wasn’t a feint
    That I can prove, I can move to the groove of the pencils melody
    All my agony and misery drowned in my wrist’s melancholy
    My palm holds the tool, which will make reality look a fool
    The only rule is to lose what makes you keep your cool
    And be drenched in your own emotions
    Taken away by the motions of your own epic ocean
    As the brush goes up and down, my heart starts to pound
    The world turns round and round and I hear a sound
    A rhythm to which my hands move and create life so sweet
    I stop and notice that it is my own heartbeat
    The reason I lost the ability, to willingly create a picture of my mind state
    Is because I conducted treason, by being unreasonably reluctant to wait
    Tried to force creativity which made my pool of dreams seem empty
    Unable to tap my dormant imagery, my own greed has become my enemy
    After my inspiration was lost, immediately all my paid jobs were tossed
    So all the money that was flossed in the cracks of my dreams
    Seemed to be a drug, which had me acting as SO many fiends
    Losing focus on the art of creating, itself
    Losing everything, gave me the greatest wealth
    Back to the essence of being the supreme presence
    For my creations, which came into existence by life’s lessons
    The white canvas now holds my entire imagination’s feature
    Painting is a drug on its own, as I get to create my visions of the future​

    Vs.

    Memento

    If you look closely, you can see the devil in the details...
    Two verses winning, but in my opinion last week's failed
    Morphing to a sword wasn't a proper ending to my story
    Maybe I didn't give my main character enough glory

    What if when the devil pointed his sword into the light
    He got sucked into the sharp blade by a true hero's might

    After all the chains had vanished, what if I had managed
    To grab this sword the devil wielded, and healed like a bandage
    I remained stranded at this road, granted I was alone
    I still had this weirdly ill feeling that I was being controlled...

    The light was still there, and when I swung the sword it shot
    Black holes everywhere, these deep dark unknowns were plots
    Into the abyss, where the dead lived and I was at the nexus
    Where zombies fed insatiable appetites with men's heads...

    I sent shreds of zombie flesh flying, red cells splashing
    Blood drenched complexion, dreading each slashing
    I went West, headed to the nebular portal that remained
    These zombies were cerebral with composure regained
    They all formed a circle to both surround and to stalk me
    The crowd was awfully big, made sounds to mock me
    Ready to feast upon me, I sensed, more than probably
    The way they tilted their heads toward me was costly
    I brandished my blade around the whole circumference
    Decapitating the front row, heads popped like dumplings
    Bodies fell, but I was overcome with the rotten smell
    Plus the naughty spell I was under reserved my spot in hell

    I raised the sword up to side of my metopic suture
    The light shone through, my new identity glowed too
    One in the same with the beast, he robbed my future

    visions of the Future

    Look up in the sky in this dishonest place;
    see blood red clouds of atomic waste.
    Acid rain falls down.. the air reeks of death;
    you better seek shelter.. the rain 'll eat you flesh.
    Mountains of bodies, trash and landfills;
    humanity's dying off...our futures at a standstill.
    A few wander the ruins, it's life or death...
    ...insane cannibals prowler out to slice your neck.
    Mutated spiders hide in the cracks of the dark...
    ...horribly hideous freaks lurk with the blackest of hearts.
    Buildings stand in ruin, times are wretched and hard...
    ...the streets are full of skeletons and the wreckage of cars.
    110 degrees on the coldest days;
    religion is no more... now no one prays.
    There is only terror...behold and gaze.
    You better seek shelter or get scorched by the solar rays.
    Back in the olden ways...life was a wonder...
    ...food in abundance, now everybody's dying of hunger.
    No vegetation or animals, every meal truly is bland...
    ...bottled water, boxed snacks or food from a can.
    The survivors form gangs...and stick to their pack.
    Twenty one years old.. it'd be amazing if you lived until that.
    Horror bloody torture, your doomed if you try...
    ...got to fight to survive and keep your food and supplies.
    Breeding's not wise...mother earth's gone evil and vile...
    ...there's a fifty percent chance you'll end up with a freak for a child.
    Everything is hideous, all beauty has died;
    hope's a distant memory, agony's the only view that resides.
    No technology or medicine, you stop hoping and cry...
    ...if you get an infection or become sick you're probably going to die.
    So be glad for what you have as you sit at your computer...
    ...reading this tale which is only just a glimpse of our future.
    When you feel life's hard and unjust or worse...
    ...just remember what's in store...thing's 'll get much much worse.​

    5. Matchups

    CHAMPIONSHIP
    C. -Atreyu- 6-0
    2. Memento 3-0

    Predictions – After a impressive win over Shadow, Atreyu looks to successfully defend his title against Memento. Memento on the other hand wants to take to title for himself and I think he will, 3-0.

    CONTENDERSHIP
    3. iCon. 3-0
    4. oNeiRiC 2-3

    Predictions – This week icon is up against oNe who are both coming off wins. Both writers have areas in which they can improve on but I believe oNe needs to work a little harder to win this than icon does. oNe needs to work on his mechanics this week but I fear it won’t be enough. Icon wins 3-1.

    5. killaeffect 2-2
    6. MordridDeschain 1-0

    Predictions – If Mordrid shows up, Killa will be looking to beat him to win in consecutive week. Killa has improved a lot but has been a faggot about voting. Still I believe that if both show up, Mordrid will shut killa out 3-0.

    7. Got Life? 1-0
    8. ShadowWarriorfs 15-13

    Predictions – Last time these guys met, Shadow upset GL in a 4-0 victory causing him to sign out in disgust. This week, he looks to get his revenge and I believe he will get it, if he writes seriously. GL wins 3-1.

    9. Urizen 5-4
    10. T.a.C 8-6

    Predictions – This match-up looks to be very good with T.a.C and Urizen both coming off losses. Urizen and T.a.C both have the mechanics to get it down but this will come down to which one will have the better story. I believe that Urizen will take advantage and win 3-2.

    11. Soull 1-1
    12. Redeemed 0-0
    13. TeKneeK 0-0

    Prediction – Soull win because his opponents will no show.

    8. T.a.C-tical Interviews – Instead of an interview this week, here are a list of this weeks faggots.

    No Show Faggots – Lay down, Burd & Blitz “the fag” Kreig,
    Non Voting faggots – Got Life? MordridDeschain, icon and Killa
    T.a.C – you are a faggot for only voting on one batter and never doing an interview without me having to tell you. You suck and I hope your fantasy football team get slaughtered. P.S your mom’s vagina smells like an anthill


    9. Grinds My Gears – You know what really grids my gears? People who talk with no emotion in their voice. What makes it worse is when these in people have to give long speeches. Its like these people don’t care that everyone around who should be listening just passed out into a nice lengthy nap. Which is good most of the time but in a school environment, it can affect your grade. You figure the ‘boring factor’ would be taken into consideration when allowing these people to speak but like most things in life, no one seems to care. This is what really grinds my gears.

    10. Conclusion – This week was disappointing on the voting aspect of things but it was nice to see people continue to improving their style. Let’s congratulate Atreyu on becoming the New RSTL Champion. Good luck to everyone this week. I’m looking to get a win this week.
