''Note: Due to an unfortunate amount of both drama and [[RealLife real life]] interruption, the Tandy Arena eventually became defunct. However, it still lives on in the form of [[http://thearena.freeforums.org/index.php The Ravenwood Arena]], a [[OrwellianRetcon retcon]]/[[ReWrite hard reset]] of the setting with a lot less ponderous history.''

* BadassAbnormal: Not all fighters rely entirely on magic. One example is Caleb, who for some time was actually a ''BadassNormal'' before ascending to BadassAbnormal.

The Tandy Arena is the spotlight of the [[RolePlayingGames role playing]] section of the [[http://community.910cmx.com 910CMX forums]], previously [[TheWotch The Wotch]] forums. As is implied by the name, forum members create characters--referred to as Avatars, which can range anywhere from {{Badass Normal}}s to {{Physical God}}s--and duke it out in one-on-one (with the occasional two-on-two) [[PlayByPostGames play by post]] matches. A match starts off with a moderator's post of the battleground, followed by fifteen posts per combatant (for a total of typically thirty posts). Afterwards, the fight is closed by the mod, who then creates a voting thread, in which other members of the forum vote for who they think will win. In exhibition matches, leaving it at that is generally sufficient, but it is strongly encouraged (and in fact required for [[TournamentArc tournament]] matches) for voters to explain the reasoning behind their choices. After a week (as of the voting thread's creation), voting is closed and a winner is declared. The match thread is unlocked a final time for the winner to formally end the match.

The City of Tandy located in the mid-western United States and is also a multiversal nexus. People from across the multiverse find themselves drawn to the city of Tandy, and it is currently home to aliens, wizards, gods and super solders. Thankfully, the city is also home to one of the biggest {{Weirdness Censor}}s in existence.

There is also an IRC for the Arena on the sorcery.irc servers called #thewotch. While thewotch is rarely discussed, the name has stuck.

* CrowningMomentofAwesome : There are many of these, usually at the end of every fight in the form of the last attack, but a CMoA crossed with a CMoF is the Round 4 thread for the 2nd Team Tourney turning into rapping trash talk.
