It's been roughly a million years since I've sent out a story to the mailing list, so I decide to surprise you with one tonight!
This is Deathmatch #3: a collection of three short matches, all of which were proposed last time. Many of the deathmatches were close, even matches...but some were not, and these were some of those in the latter category.
If you're signed up for the mailing list, the story's going out tonight! If you're not, sign up at the bottom-right of this very page!
I'll send it out in the next few hours, so enjoy!

Any way to get a hold of these? I didn't know. I DIDN'T KNOW!

I really hope so! I only subbed to the website recently but have been a fan for a while. :(

Hey, author! When will the next Stormlight archive book be out?
11/1/2017 05:17:35 am
Further delays to OKAK... that's ok, Oathbringer would delay me too!
10/31/2017 05:40:44 pm
Awesome! Looking forward to it!
10/31/2017 06:39:45 pm
WHISPER VS DREADBEAST
10/31/2017 07:03:10 pm
Shera vs Yerin? I would love this!
10/31/2017 07:27:24 pm
Wow....You met Eithan.....A shame you can't remember the encounter.
Lord of the Tower
10/31/2017 08:44:54 pm
Loooolllllllllllll Will why you do yourself like that!😂😂😂😂😂😂
10/31/2017 09:06:40 pm
Thanks, a fun read.
10/31/2017 10:12:44 pm
Which brings the interesting thought... will he be a (nominal) ally, will he just try to make them go away, or will he try to eat Orthos and Lindon?
11/1/2017 09:38:10 am
He consumes dragon hearts as far as I remember. I don't think Lindon has one of those....Orthos...well I doubt a truegold turtle would be much of a meal, more like a mid-night snack.
11/1/2017 07:15:58 am
What I'd really love to see would be the emperor vs a monarch. That seems like a fair match up though the emperor could be a level or two above or below.
11/1/2017 09:39:40 am
The emperor was on par to a Sage. So he's below by at least two levels to northstrider. Monarchs>Heralds>Sages(best Arclords)
That one guy...
11/1/2017 12:12:34 pm
So the emperor against the sword sage...
11/9/2017 04:44:20 am
If the emperor was on par with a sage, and he was able to control or at least hold off the elders for the most part,, that would imply that it takes (at least) sage level power to fight a dread god. If sages aren't enough and you need monarchs to really fight a dread god, how powerful are the dreadgods compared to elders?
11/1/2017 11:36:21 am
I'd like to see how powerful the emperor could get as a cultivator in a world like cradle where he didn't have to constantly monitor the world for threats from abidan level beings and keep them under control. It seems like his willpower and intelligence would allow him to get pretty high.
11/1/2017 08:05:40 am
Wow. Whoever suggested that fight really doesn't like Alin.
11/1/2017 09:38:07 am
I wonder if anyone non-transcended who is currently active in Amalgam can match an Overlord...
11/1/2017 11:07:12 am
I think it depends. If Kai was enhanced with the power of Elysia like how Simon was he might be able to match one. Idk though.
11/2/2017 04:04:05 pm
Probably depends on the overlord, some of them would wreck a Valinhall. The path of the Grasping Sky could simply use a ruler technique to hold them in the air and strangle them (it's not possible to exert strength without something to push on)
11/2/2017 09:22:02 pm
For his age Simon is a lot stronger than he has a right to be. Will says Simon is at highgold status more or less. That puts him on par with Yerin in simply power, her skill is obviously far above his. In other words Simon would be an elite in Cradle at a young age. I think Kai qualified at roughly Truegold and maybe a half step into Lord, similar to Jai Long.
11/1/2017 09:41:25 am
My personal favorite deathmatch would be The sage of the endless sword vrs the emperor of the Aurelian Empire (otherwise known as Clean)
11/2/2017 12:14:48 pm
What is the Aurelian empire? I'm assuming some relation to the Aurelias family... I read that short story not getting who this was.
11/2/2017 01:12:02 pm
Aurelian Empire is from the Elder Empire series - it's the name of the empire that the series revolves around. No connection to the Arelius family from Cradle, despite the name similarity, per previous blog comments from Will.
11/1/2017 09:59:57 am
All the main characters from your books verse each other
11/1/2017 11:46:29 am
Nooooo! Can somebody share the Northstrider one with me? He's my favorite character despite the fact he's never had a scene or even appeared and has only ever been tangentially mentioned.
That one guy....
11/1/2017 12:08:08 pm
Are you not on the Mailing list?
11/1/2017 03:32:57 pm
My parents told me I can only use my email to contact them or for school-related activities.
11/1/2017 11:42:27 pm
The only way to get the short stories is to just email Will. I'm not sure what your parent's reasoning behind not letting you use your email for anything else is but I think that doing that at least should be fine and not risky.
11/2/2017 03:49:12 pm
here you go:
11/1/2017 12:10:22 pm
Urzaia needs a rematch against Simon....He was totally going easy on him the first time.
11/2/2017 12:16:36 pm
Where's Urzai's story?
11/3/2017 09:01:37 am
He fought against Simon in the very first deathmatch
11/3/2017 09:04:56 am
Here is where it is published...(The first Deathmatch)
11/11/2017 03:07:06 am
Could you please send the other two stories
11/1/2017 02:48:14 pm
Eithan vs. Alin? anybody...
11/1/2017 10:16:45 pm
I think it would be a total wipe, we know alin is apparently about a low gold level according to northstrider, plus his only possible advantage is having a lot of tricks to pull out which would be useless against eithan
11/1/2017 11:15:22 pm
Northerners word's were barely stronger than a Gold. He didn't say Lowgold, highgold, or truegold. Those three stages make up the gold stage so we can assert Alin is at Underlord level. If not at least very close.
11/1/2017 03:35:03 pm
Damn! Missed it! I guess that's what I get for being lazy about the mailing list and not subscribing until today. Oh well. I'll get the next event then.
11/2/2017 03:49:57 pm
All the stories are published here:
11/1/2017 05:28:45 pm
Eithan was far to nice. I believe that Shuffles vs Will Wight would be a much more gruesome battle.
11/1/2017 09:58:42 pm
How would one go about trading previously released death matches?
11/1/2017 10:21:59 pm
Ok so two things, I would love to see will wight fight someone who was actually aware of his authorness just they they could get freaked out by the meta ness of it just like will was in the first one, despite the fact it would be an utter wipe, someone like suriel just so she could be like wuuuuuuut.
A freelance writer
11/2/2017 10:16:05 am
Alright, I want a deathmatch. willwight vs freelance writer.
11/2/2017 12:20:19 pm
Eldest Nye vs Orthos, anyone?
11/2/2017 01:59:09 pm
I'd like to see
11/2/2017 04:41:06 pm
Definitely the last one that would be awesome
11/3/2017 05:03:01 am
Someone really wanted a fight between a Monarch and someone from Simon's world? I mean Northstrider could have slept through entire battle and still win the fight.
11/3/2017 04:50:44 pm
Will, did you actually once push a guy in a pool? Is that really the only fight you've ever been in?
11/4/2017 01:27:43 pm
Will Wight vs Ishmael, or any of the forsaken from Robert Jordans books, a little bale fire, and poof, Will Wight was erased from existence 8 years ago.
11/6/2017 08:26:28 am
Will , one question : If Eithan and naru gwei seriously fought each other holding nothing back who do you think will be the victor !
11/6/2017 10:46:28 am
I have found an actual historical image of Garbagiel demonstrating his awe inspiring powers. I leave it as an offering to him.
Garbagiel the raccoon
11/8/2017 01:51:31 pm
11/6/2017 12:50:17 pm
I want a Will Wight vs. Lindon match . . . but this time I want it to be a rap battle.
11/11/2017 12:52:31 am
Woodsman4ever could you please send the other two stories also?
11/12/2017 08:30:43 pm
So I have a few Death Battle Idea's
11/18/2017 07:03:32 pm
I'm probably a bit late to the party, but might i suggest a match-up? The Dreadgods against the Elders. I mean we can't have all the dreadgods against all the elders since we only know one dredgod in detail, but the bleeding phoenix might be able to take on Nakothi, don't you think?
