Just wanted to post real quick about a silly "Cage Mage" style bracket I set up for Malazan Book of the Fallen.

Please check out the bracket here: http://challonge.com/malazan

In order to vote on the winner of each matchup you must register. But there is no email verification if you just want to vote. So plug in any email, and hurry and vote for your winners!

So instead of the standard 1v1 cage match. Since we all know the end would probably be Rake vs Icarium. Let's mix it up, since I am eager to do one and see how it turns out. I have grouped up various players and will insert them into a bracket and we can see who comes out on top. It's very hard to get groups together with people who are connected somehow. Also hard to get 64 groups that are somewhat similar in strength. There are stronger and weaker groups for sure, but after much time spent editing the groups I think this is pretty good.

I will probably have each round take roughly a week.

I added in the "Discussion" on that website a quick description of each character in the group. Most should know everyone listed, but just in case someone doesn't.

I dunno who's slacking here, but round 1 we had over 20 votes, and now round 2 we don't even have 10 yet! Get to voting people!

Quarter Finals are done! Go back and vote for the Semi's. 4 left!
Shadowthrone and Cottillion defeat Rake and Crone
Draconus and Sheltatha Lore defeat Dassem and Seguleh Jan
Quickben and Taycheren defeat the BridgeBurners
Hood and Gothos defeat Karsa, Leoman, and Kiska

Now....
The Shadow gods vs Team overpowered Jaghut.
Quickben and Tay vs Draconus and his dragon wife

I don't know how you can vote against the gods of shadow. But if you had to, it would be this team to beat them. Hood and Gothos combined? How can anyone beat that.

The other matchup depends on what part of QB/Tay you see them as. The fist few books or the last book. Nearly unstoppable in the last book, while just strong mages in the first. Draconus accidentally killed an entire army...now that's power.

Slightly disappointing that we had 20+ votes for round 2 and less and less each round. Only 4 votes for the semi-finals. I'm going to keep the voting open for another week, hope to get more votes!

Shadowthrone and Cottillion vs Hood and Gothos
Draconus and Sheltatha Lore vs Quickben and Taycheren

Final Battle.

Hood and Gothos vs Quickben and Tayschrenn

On their way to the finals Hood and Gothos had some battles. They started out with the Imass siblings Tool and Kilava. From there they had to defeat two ancient powers Raest and Edgewalker. And right after that they were tasked with fighting Icarium and his friend Mappo. Barely walked away from that one. Karsa, Leoman, and Kiska were next. With Karsa's ability to absorb magic attacks this was much harder than first assumed. Then finally they were tasked with beating the God of Shadows and the God of Assassins. Not easy for anyone, but here we are. Now in a final battle with the two strongest mortal sorcerers we know of.

Quick and Tay didn't have it much easier. Their first battle was more or less the Goddess of Assassins along with Cutter and Greyfrog. After that they had to battle a giant lizard assassin and two ascendants Gesler and Stormy. Then on to their hardest battle to date. K'Rul and Kruppe. They did not expect to defeat an Elder god, let alone the maker of the warrens. After that narrow victory they had to fight their friends the Bridge Burners. And after all of that they are told Draconus now stands in their path. And somehow they get around him only to find the God of Death and the fabled Gothos now blocking their way. Is it possible?
