  1. Yes absolutely correct, have enough to extend our community for another year, we'll see where we land after that. The new domain has already been put up and while the servers are not put up to reflect that, I'm just waiting on the image as each day I purchase in advance is a day way lose near the end. I'd like to try and put it online as close to May 2nd as comfortably possible. That said the Gofundme is still up and all funds will go into a side account to put towards the future of CBUB. Let's not say our goodbyes just yet

  2. Huh, last I checked, the current lease, if it's not renewed, should actually run out in April: So, unless something's changed since Fox made this post, barring someone else taking over right after the fact, we may actually have just over another month. Also, we may want to give IKA a chance at running things, since he's been taking steps to give it a shot.

  3. Hi All. It has been maybe 7 months since re-opening the site. Thanks for hanging out and participating! Here's some of the things that I'm looking at for the site in the new year. Monthly Flash Fiction Tournaments - monthly tournament will resume with a new Rating system. The 5 star rating system that the forum has is cool but too limited. There is just not enough flexibility in the Forum 5-Star System to give more fine grained scores (like, say, a 4.5 or 4.6). So the Tournaments will return when I build a new rating mechanism for our wonderful Match Judges to use. Fantasy Teams - the fantasy teams has been fun, I think. It is an evolving system, and is getting updates and changes based on feedback of it. We'll keep on playing and improving it as we go! CBUB Database - There are several Wikis out there which have data about the characters that are in the CBUB Database. I'm hoping to connect to those Wikis and use their data to make the entries in the CBUB database easier to use in battles. The VS Battles Wiki is one that could be really useful. Other Stuff - I'll keep fixing things or adding features when you bring them to my attention, of course. Just let me know. You can, of course, use the site features like the Blog section to post things that interest you. I use mine for the occasional Anime review. I would like the site to be the best it can be at what it is! All that said... the CBUB has returned to a very different world than the one it left. As far as getting new members goes, this is probably about as good as it gets. I point this out because some of you have asked or mentioned it. I've tried running ads and so forth - it's money down the drain to no effect. This is a very niche kind of website and this is not the halcyon days of the 1990's when comics were king and the internet was young. Anyways, this site is here because you asked for it to be here - and as long as you are entertained by it, that's really all that matters to me, personally. I'll just keep doing what I do and trying to make it better. Thanks!

  6. So, as you all may know by now, the CBUB is either going to shut down, or get transferred over to new ownership in March. In case the site does go into shutdown, I thought I would go ahead and make this topic. Well, I have enjoyed being back on the site. It has been nice seeing old friends again, as well as making new ones. I was glad I was able to work more on my Zombie Power Rangers arc. Sorry to say I won’t be able to finish it. I have enjoyed reading the matches that were made by other writers. The Fantasy Seasons were really good. Happy to see characters that I have added over the years were being used in matches. I am going to miss the CBUB. But who knows, maybe the site will run another year or more. We’ll just see how things go. If this is the end, I would like to say goodbye to everyone. You all are great people. 🙂

  8. The site is open. Registration is open. The core features seem to work regarding Matches (start and stop) and adding Characters. The Forum has a lot of features. It's pretty fun. Changes: Rated matches now occur via the Stars rating 'Rate This Topic'. Any forum member can rate a Rated Match ... and are encouraged to do so! Members titled as CBUB Match Judge get their ratings counted X3. Points by rank There's still 5 ranks, with 5 being lowest and 1 highest. There used to be an arcane system whereby certain ranks could only be achieved after a certain number of matches had been created. That's all been removed. It's just a flat system based on your current weighted average regardless of number of matches. Added more points to rank 5 so newbies can make more matches. now 4, up from 2. So anyways, it works. It's probably not a great website to try and use on a Mobile phone. It's only been open a couple days. Could be awhile before there's more people here. I'll look into repairing the Fantasy Draft system. Maybe we can get one going in a couple weeks. Thanks!

  12. To be fair, it took some pretty extraordinary happenings in the world for that to come about. It wasn't a planned thing. People wanted something to do during lockdown. I do think the folks that have been playing around here over the last couple years and participating in the contests have been entertained. And now they are going to take it forward and do whatever they want with it, as I retire once more. Thanks!

  16. Wait, I won? Well, what do you know? After making four semis and three straight finals, I finally lucked up and won one of these things. 😛 First of all, I want to thank everyone who's competed in these Fantasy Drafts and made good picks and fun, compelling arguments for their characters. Also, thank you for those that had enough faith in my picks and arguments to allow me to get the win this time out. Also, thank you to Movie-Brat to making such a good Draft team that allowed to to make your first Draft final. To be honest, a couple of these match-ups could've gone either way, votes-wise. Definitely nothing for you to be ashamed of, man.

  17. This has been one hell of a CBUB debate. Really a good throwdown. I'm siding with Raphael argument. Cass is the physical underdog and fighting out of her weight class. Nothing unusual for her but we are using MMA rules, so I think that favors Raph. Even if slightly.

  18. THE BOTTOM LINE Andel Sanap: Welcome back, everyone! This match has gone on for longer than expected, but we appear to be in the homestretch. Team Mortal Kombat has taken control of the Gorge, while Team Forever Red has been forced through the portal to TCC Arena. Al Rossi: The Gorge is littered with the bodies of various Rangers. I think I see Mack’s head over there by the remains of Cyrax. Meanwhile, it appears that Tommy, Jason, and Shane are the last three standing in TCC Arena. They’ve finished off Baraka and D’Vorah, and Cassie and Jacqui are down for the count, as well. Andel Sanap: Raiden, Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Shao Kahn, and Mileena appear to be at impasse. They’re arguing by the portal. Shao Kahn: Enough of this, Raiden! Let’s go through the portal and finish this battle! Raiden: Shao Kahn! We don’t know how many of the Rangers are left in the arena! Sub-Zero: Raiden is right. We need to plan our attack. Shao Kahn: Bah! Cowards! All of you! Mileena! On to our final victory! Mileena: By your will, Shao Kahn! Al Rossi: But look on the other side of the portal! Tommy and Jason are standing on either side with swords drawn, and Shane has the Hawk Blaster! Mileena charges through the portal and… Mileena: ARRRRGH! Andel Sanap: And Mileena is down! Shao Kahn is right behind her but the other two Rangers strike with their blades! Al Rossi: And now Shane is getting to the act with his own sword! Shao Kahn swings his hammer wildly in a rage but the Rangers are just moving too quick for him! Blow after blow and Kahn is staggering! Shane and Jason grab a hold the Kahn by his arms! Jason Scott Lee (Mighty Morphin’): Tommy! Now! Tommy Oliver (Zeo): Alright! HYAH! Andel Sanap: By the Force! Connects with the Zeo V Flying Kick! Sparks fly and down goes the Kahn! Al Rossi: But out of the portal! Raiden, Sub-Zero, and Scorpion! Raiden blasts all three Rangers with lightning and sends them sprawling down the pyramid! Andel Sanap: Jason gets snagged with the kunai! Scorpion: Get over here! Al Rossi: Yanked in close and decapitated for the kill! Meanwhile Sub-Zero freezes Shane and smashes him into pieces! Tommy’s back on his feet but the end has got to be near! Raiden: You have fought valiantly, Tommy Oliver. Stand down and surrender. Tommy Oliver (Zeo): Sorry, Raiden. But a Power Ranger never surrenders! HYAH! Andel Sanap: Mr. Oliver charges ahead! He isn’t going down without a…By the Force! Al Rossi: Frozen to the ground by Sub-Zero! And nailed in the chest by the kunai! Raiden’s hand is glowing again and… ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZAP! Referee: Winner: Team Mortal Kombat! Andel Sanap: Now that was most definitely a fatality. Al Rossi: That’s for sure, Andel. Mercy is going to be working overtime after this one. But Raiden, Sub-Zero, and Scorpion are the last men standing, and secure victory for their team. For Philippa Forrester and Andel Sanap, I’m Al Rossi saying good night for the Gorge! Frost: Ugh! Why wasn’t I used for this fight? Rita Repulsa: Ah, shut up, sister!

That's a big hit to the website budget, so I won't be running any prize tournaments for several months. However, you all should absolutely feel free to organize for fun tournaments if you would like to. Thanks!

  26. Sorry, your logic does not work for me at all. Corona beer has not suffered in sales at all despite sharing a name with a dread virus. In fact, as far as I understand it, Corona remains the most valuable beer brand whose sales have actually gone UP! Your premise is false. And also Cats rule, dogs drool.

  27. Skeletons (Undead): Found in most tombs and catacombs, and the standard undead companion to any necromancer. Goblins: Alongside Orcs and Kobolds, you'll find this creature in numerous myths and legends (and at the end of most adventurer's weapons) Lich (D&D): What do you get when you mix the stongest sorcerors or wizards in the land with a sprinkling of undeath - that's right, the spellcasting, terror inspiring, world conquering Lich. Nymph: the sexy ancient female greek type Imp: the small mischievous demonic type Bee from The Babysitter films: hot and deadly, the satanic killer is in the house.

I think this was the best of the fantasy seasons, not just because I won, but the scenarios and slots were more fun. I'd say my team was nicely balanced with The Dagda, Orks and Weird Al all doing well. Looking forward to next season!

  36. I want to thank everyone who participated in September. I have seen a lot of great and memorable matches over the last few months. Who could forget Bergy_Berg's three-match story or SSJRuss' 'Beetlejuice vs. Batman'? September was no different and... dare I say... I think the bar has even been raised. I will have to personally re-evaluate what I consider a '5-star' match in the coming months. They are just all that good. Thanks for all the great reads!

  38. One day, several weeks ago, at the Church of Healing Unity soup kitchen Komi was doing her usual job of helping to feed the needy who came in, and some of the acolytes too, as they often ate there as well, to socialize and evangelize the beggars who came in. It came to pass that a particular winged tiefling was the last in line for the meal. He smiled a lot and always tried to talk to Komi but she was too shy so far to respond. This time - panic! He was the last in line, so there was no one else to focus on! When he asked if she would sit with him and eat, there was no way she could refuse! Numbly, she nodded and grabbed the lunch she'd packed for herself - that she intended to eat out on the balcony, alone, and followed him to whatever table he chose to go to. Komi had yet to say a word. She had never been among the people who scorned him, at least among their peer group. Though it was mostly an attitude carried over from the more conservative members of the faith, nonetheless it had been something picked up by everyone else. As though a tiefling was something to be hated, despised and even feared. Nothing open of course, there were far too many eyes for it. It was little things. Teachers would ignore him when he had questions or mock him if he didn't know the material. He'd practice alone or with those who didn't feel that way, scarce as they were. Food would sometimes be burned or over salted when given...Little things. But not from her. His food was never harmed when he came in line after finishing his work here, though she had yet to speak back. They were in the same age group he knew that much, though growing up she had always been quiet too.She never laughed at him anyway. That put her in the clear minority. Now finally, here they were...Eating together before he finally spoke. "I'm going to leave in a week." Komi stared at him for a long moment before saying, softly, "You shouldn't quit. I think you are a very sweet person." She was blushing furiously and looking down at the remains of her lunch. She had a very artfully crafted charcuterie of meats, cheeses and delicate bread slices that she'd meticulously assemble into tiny sandwiches one at a time. There was only enough left for a couple more of these at this point. "You shouldn't let bullies run you off." She added, staring firmly at a particular piece of bread that was vaguely heart-shaped. He blinked and then smiled warmly at her. "That's sweet of you to say. But that's not why I'm leaving...Well, not entirely." His fingers stroked the handle of his sword in a contemplative gesture as he spoke on. "I'm taking my Quest for Truth early. The Abbot thinks I'm ready and so do I. I figured I'd start off in Eastrun City." He took a few bites of his food, swallowed and went on. "They're having a shortage of adventurers and I figured I could hone my skills and start off there with Jessamine." There was so much to unpack there. She had been told she was ready for her Quest for some time now, but she was too meek to go on her own. The embarrassment continued when he mentioned Jessamine. "Jessamine is your... girlfriend then?" She kept her eyes off of him, busying herself with making her next mini sandwich. He snorted with laughter. "No. She's my partner." He held up his sword as he added dryly. "After Master Jinn took me to....Er, celebrate my eighteenth birthday I found her in a corner calling to me. She's a spirit who lives in my sword and loves to flirt with me for some reason. I expect its mostly just a reaction." There were at least four blinks before Komi spoke, and the bonnet on her head seemed to ride higher than usual. If Corvo was observant enough, he'd make out the outlines of the Neko ears that manifested when she was exceptionally startled or surprised. She knew she had to say something so she offered up a random fact about herself. "I'm nineteen, myself." He smiled. "Me too. I've had her for a year now and some months." He placed the sword back and leaned forward as he added. "I know it's normal to wait. But I feel ready. And I didn't want to leave without saying goodbye to possibly one of my few friends here." If it were possible, her eyes widened further. "I'm.... I'm your friend?" She looked at him for a moment before she looked down again and devoured her second-to-last sandwich so she'd have an excuse not to say anything more. Only one excuse left. She thought to herself. He blinked and then looked briefly unsettled as he asked. "I'm sorry if I made a mistake. It's just...Well, never mind then." Her mouth opened. No words came out. Quick! Do something! Her inner voice told her. So she grabbed his hand, almost violently. Words would not come, so she just nodded furiously, which caused her bonnet to slip back, revealing the extra set of ears that showed up now and then, followed by a squeak as she used her free hand to attempt to cover them up, to little avail. Oh. That was forward. He could feel his sword almost burning, though curiosity compelled him to look closer. His free hand reached out, gently tugging off her bonnet as he blinked. "...Are you like me?" There was a brief note or wonder in his tone before he chuckled and said warmly. "I like it. It's cute." Komi shrugged and shook her head. "...N-no. I don't think so anyway. Both my parents are human, but now and then... this happens. Maybe I have some tabaxi or... more likely, kitsune... in my lineage somewhere. I..." She paused and shrugged again. "...I can't control when it happens, and they go away after awhile. It's why I always wear a bonnet." Exceedingly self-conscious now, she realized she was holding his hand and jerked it back, as if she'd burned herself. "I... I think I'd like to be considered your friend, Corvo." He smiled, a little shy and quite happy. That was a turn of phrase he didn't hear often and it was nice to hear. He just wished it had been done sooner. He would have known her better as he said suddenly. "So when are you going on your quest?" She squeaked again. "...I don't know. I suppose soon, but I should give them time to find a replacement for me." She tapped her forefingers together. "What if I'm not ready? Do you think I'm ready? I could maybe... Find you in Eastrun?" He nodded. "Yes. I'll be there. If not working." Komi looked around nervously - as if she did much any other way, then leaned forward lightning-fast and kissed Corvo on the cheek. "For luck." She stood up. "I should go help them with the dishes." A quick bow and she was gone, fluttering back to the kitchen. One thing he did notice though, that when she retreated, the cat ears had disappeared again.

OOC: As uncomfortable as this makes CFPT, the player, uncomfortable, I imagine that after Muggy the character Received a reaction like that from her, he would inquire what time she got off work and if he could show her something in his room. And would then proceed to roll a Charisma check to engage in adult activity with her. Shape of Water style. I wanted to covey that I’m the least gross way possiblè, I hope this OOC explanation accomplished that.

  42. Is this what I am reduced to? Announcing matches used for testing? This match is not worthy of a Goddess' attention and will be rated accordingly.

  43. Hello CBUB Fight Creators You may recall that CBUB Tournaments were a thing back in the day. And, you may even recall that these contests of CBUB match making skill had a prize for the winner. Next month we look forward to restoring this illustrious tradition with the CBUB June Challenge. Each Tourney contestant will need to produce at least 3 Rated matches of their choosing in June. The person with the highest FPA at months end will win. Person with top FPA will receive a $100 Amazon gift card. That's the nutshell version. I'll post a separate page with the contest rules before June. Could be fun.

  45. It's coming along. Just trying to get the new character submissions working again. With any good fortune, might be able to open up the CBUB control panel and site registrations tomorrow. Definitely want to do a CBUB Fantasy Draft again. Good times. I'll look at the FPL next. It's very complicated and could be a lot longer before that is available again.
