Moiraine Sedai has topped the poll in the 2012 Suvudu Cage Match to emerge as its ultimate champion!
The Cage Match involved 64 fighters from all across the fantasy spectrum, bloodying their way to the top of the heap. Moiraine herself dispatched Tarzan, The Dagda Mor, Jardir, Kelsier (from Brandon Sanderson’s own Mistborn series), Anomander Rake (from the Malazan series!), and finally this week, Kylar Stern. The final bout was close! Kylar was leading in the poll until we gave Moiraine the good ol’ Tor.com bump on Tuesday evening. (Or at least, we’d like to think that. In a non-euphemistic sense.)
Suvudu provides write-ups of how their contributors think every match will go before opening the poll to commenters and readers. You can read all of Moiraine’s fight write-ups here.
We thought we’d find an image for this victory post where Moiraine’s a little bit more triumphant, too. You can see a larger, non-obscured image of Westling’s illustration of Moiraine on their DeviantArt site here.
Great job, Wheel of Time fans! Let’s hope she gives the Dark One the beating she just gave to the rest of the fantasy genre.
