A contest for player modelers daring them to create the meanest, smartest, toughest character possible be it: human, hybrid, mechanical, alien or animal, worthy of competing in a tournament battle to the end.

The tolling of the midnight bell echoes through the moonlit halls of the New York Museum, breaking the silence. For a 100 years, this stone monolith has stood as a testament to human knowledge in all its forms. Ancient tomes and forgotten texts line bookshelves of impossible height, spiral staircases and dust-lined corridors make what was once a place for late-night study into a shadowy labyrinth for tonight's bloody cabal.
The rules of this deadly ballet are simple: A combatant of any race, size or species may enter. Only one may leave. It's going to be a long night at the Library.

In the end it came down to 6 entries, which were brilliantly made considering the deadline and the fact that we (in)conveniently lined up the competition during exam time. Choosing a winner was tough as always but in the end the honor went to doncorneo99 who made AKIMBO The African Bush Warrior.
With a dress and fluffy bands to match, this is one creature that has pumped more weights than Arnie and is well deserving of a win. Seriously though the diffuse map is killer: model 9, skin 9, final 9.
Second place goes to solvalou who made Space Monkey. Now I’m not sure what a monkey is doing in space and he may look a little chubby, but my mum always told me to watch out for monkeys and this looks like one character you don’t want to upset. Awesome: model 10, skin none, final 8.
Third place goes to Dragonlord who worked his butt off on Shadrian. With 4 eyes and enough spiky bits to poke anything that gets near, I’d say good luck getting away from this bad-guy. Model 8, skin 5, final 7.
Finally massive thanks to everyone who participated and missed out (Jack, Police Bot Roger and Tanaka). If you are after more, tons of work was shown off in the forums.
