Top 25 candidates for DotF 2

These 25 are still in the running to become America's next top Duel of the Fates champion. It's never too late for new character suggestions, but the polls close on Friday, 12/16, so you'd better make it quick. This list is in order as decided by you, the voters (and OK, a little GOP-style behind the scenes vote-tampering, but nothing too serious... It's a joke. Fanatics, don't send angry e-mails) Only the Top 8 will get in, though! So if your fave is hovering somewhere at or below 8th place, then cast a vote to secure their position. The race is still tight -- Even Dr. Evil isn't 100% secure in the number one spot. E-mail your votes to: duelofthefates at gmail dot com.

  1. Dr. Evil (Austin Powers)
  2. TD0013 (stormtrooper – heard periodically on the Dragon Page)
  3. Gandalf*
  4. Kara “Starbuck” Thrace (BS:G 2005)
  5. T-800 Terminator (Arnold)
  6. Connor MacLeod (Highlander)
  7. Thor (Norse Mythos and Marvel Comics)
  8. Conan (of lit -- and Arnold)
  9. Ash from Evil Dead*
  10. 6 Million Dollar Man
  11. Molly from Neuromancer*
  12. Aslan
  13. Dirk Moonfire (from Jack Mangan’s brilliant novella, “Dirk Moonfire & the Nefarious Space Women”)
  14. Smaug (from The Hobbit)
  15. Beastmaster (not Arnold -- Marc Singer)
  16. Obi-Wan Kenobi (Star Wars)
  17. Buzz Lightyear
  18. The Borg Queen (Star Trek: First Contact)
  19. Spock
  20. Yoda (Star Wars)
  21. Dr. Who
  22. Dumbledore (Harry Potter)
  23. Hulk (Lou Ferigno)
  24. River (from Firefly)
  25. Catwoman
The '*' means that they've dueled once before.

Check out TD0013 jumping up to 2nd place in the voting!! For those who don't know, TD0013 is a rather ornery stormtrooper in the service of the Empire who can often be heard giving a "diff'rent point of view" on the Dragon Page Wingin It! podcast. Notice also that there are a few women in the Top 25, but only one in the Top 8.

I like the way that this is turning out.
