The Postmaster was concerned. Despite his best efforts, the rules were still unclear.
There was only one option he could see for continuing this game: a battle to the death.
The Postmaster sent letters out across the dimensions - invitations to beings of similar power to him. All they asked for was the profile of a combatant who would prove interesting in the coming skirmish.
Then, the Postmaster would unleash them into the thread. This would surely reveal the rules... or, failing that, leave the thread a smoking crater from which no rules would ever escape again.
For the Postmaster, that was an acceptable outcome.


The letters read as follows:

Username: Your username. This is VERY IMPORTANT, be sure to include it.
Name: The combatant's name. This is less important, but the Postmaster would very much like to see it. Group entries are allowed.
Race: Is the combatant an ordinary human except with some additional trait? Or perhaps an elf? Maybe even a sentient cabbage? Or an entire universe occupying the body of a suffocating trout? All of these are acceptable, just be sure to note it down here accurately for the Postmaster's records.
Gender: The Postmaster recognizes that the often-used male/female gender binary is inadequate for many species. Please make any notes about the gender identity of the combatant in this field.
Text Color: The Postmaster requests that all replies be a different color, distinguishable from the rest. This will simplify sorting your mail when it arrives.
Biography: The Postmaster would also like details of what, precisely, this entrant in the battle has been doing with their life up to now, as you have no doubt been using a small portion of your omniscience to monitor them, as all extradimensional entities have a tendency to do.
Description: Please state the entity's physical and psychological attributes, so that the Postmaster may more readily identify them. The Postmaster is not an expert on every species across the multiverse, after all.
Weapons and Abilities: This field is for describing what the contestant can do in a fight. Or when they aren't fighting, as that might be relevant somehow. But just who would join a battle to the death and then not engage in combat, that seems absurd and the Postmaster hopes none of you will submit such a nonsensical entry.
The Postmaster thanks you in advance for your participation, and hopes that your entrant performs well in the upcoming battle.

There's no reason for this | Or this | Death is inevitable | You can't challenge fate | The smallest change | I'm overwhelmed
I'm serious | It makes perfect sense | Easy as ABC! | I can't even explain it | Cleaning up someone else's mess
I suck | I rule | I've got it made | Really, I'm serious | This bugs me | It's all lies | I want to believe | Beauty is a curse

Hm. No rules. Maybe a different piece of long text may fare better.

I contend, my friends, that we have no difficult problem to solve in America, and that is the view of nearly everyone with whom I have discussed the matter here in Washington and elsewhere throughout the United States—that we have no very difficult problem to solve.

It is not the difficulty of the problem which we have; it is the fact that the rich people of this country—and by rich people I mean the super-rich—will not allow us to solve the problems, or rather the one little problem that is afflicting this country, because in order to cure all of our woes it is necessary to scale down the big fortunes, that we may scatter the wealth to be shared by all of the people.

We have a marvelous love for this Government of ours; in fact, it is almost a religion, and it is well that it should be, because we have a splendid form of government and we have a splendid set of laws. We have everything here that we need, except that we have neglected the fundamentals upon which the American Government was principally predicated.

How many of you remember the first thing that the Declaration of Independence said? It said: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that there are certain inalienable rights for the people, and among them are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness;" and it said further, "We hold the view that all men are created equal."

Now, what did they mean by that? Did they mean, my friends, to say that all men are created equal and that that meant that any one man was born to inherit $10,000,000,000 and that another child was to be born to inherit nothing?

Did that mean, my friends, that someone would come into this world without having had an opportunity, of course, to have hit one lick of work, should be born with more than it and all of its children and children's children could ever dispose of, but that another one would have to be born into a life of starvation?

That was not the meaning of the Declaration of Independence when it said that all men are created equal or "That we hold that all men are created equal."

Nor was it the meaning of the Declaration of Independence when it said that they held that there were certain rights that were inalienable—the right of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Is that right of life, my friends, when the young children of this country are being reared into a sphere which is more owned by 12 men than it by 120,000,000 people?
