The Impatient wanted to run a battle, but he had a terrible attention span. Suddenly an epiphany; enforce a time limit! 7 hours would be OK.

It's a grand battle but each post must be less than 140 characters, also each round will last an hour.

Aside from that you know how grand battles work. It's like that. No reserves though because seriously.

Here's a profile, each section must be no more than 140 characters long. Don't sign up if you aren't going to be available for the next few hours. Dependant on signups this will either be starting in say fifty minutes time or an hour and fifty minutes.

Race: Your character's species.
Colour: The colour you'll post in.
Weapons/Abilities: What they fight with or what they can do.

Biography: The abridged version of their life.

DUE TO AMENDMENTS WE'RE HAVING FOUR HOURS TONIGHT AND THEN THREE HOURS TOMORROW.

Characters:

Bob The Pen - Solaris CAUGHT IN A SPACE DRACULA FUNKSPLOSION
Baskerville - Lankie/Pharmacy REDUCED TO VIRAL VAMPIRE DUST BY THE NEGAHARPOON

Okay so some people are having trouble being here for this so the deal is we cut it in half. Four hours tonight (in approx forty minutes time) and then three hours tomorrow starting from the same time we started tonight.

Come on people!

okay everyone seems to be pretty fine with waiting till tomorrow, so this gives woffs just under 24 hours to write a profile and me the same length of time to find another couple of people who want to participate.

i am excited about this i want it to be awesome.

Okay tomorrow and then tuesday (9PM GMT 25th June (10PM BST)) there will be the Grand Tweet II. If you can't make this time then I am sorry. It is really not possible to do this to please everyone and someone in the future could maybe do something at a time that better suits you who knows?

We have six (Solaris, Lankie, Jacq, Fogel, Times, Agent) with a potential seventh because Cyber is interested. If we can't find an eighth i will improvise.

looking forward to this. The grand Tweet was the only grand battle I read (because I am a terrible human being)
I'm pretty sure this most likely wouldn't work for me. But good luck to you all.

EDIT: 5 hours later..

Boyd that is wonderful.

It is almost go time; hang on to your hats.

Unless Woffs decides otherwise in the next eight minutes she is Willow Smith.

"Kill each other." The Impatient said. "Don't hang around!"

Suddenly they were in a haunted mansion with ghosts and other scary monsters.
