This is a thing I’ve been heading up at work that I’m really excited about, you guys! Suvudu runs an annual Cage Match tournament of sci-fi/fantasy characters which kicks off next week. We’ll have matches written by authors, bloggers (including Tumblr’s own victoria-q-nerdballs!), and yours truly, with winners determined by fan voting. The full bracket and more info is over here, but matches kick off on Monday the 10th first thing in the morning.
In addition, my coworker Matt & I will be doing some deeply entertaining (for you, at least, probably deeply embarrassing for me) Minecraft recap videos at the end of each round where we recreate one of that round’s matches within a Minecraft arena (with special guests!), so keep an eye out for those too.
Basically the lesson of all this is that sometimes if you’re a big nerd for long enough, someone will notice and pay you for it.
