On the subject of Jae's second ruling, if no environment is explicitly (the first poster not taking their liberty to be detailed about the environment and distancing) stated one does have the choice to craft certain elements themselves. Fina did just that. There was nothing wrong with the post in that regard, and there should never have been a ruling against that, in my opinion.
All I've been hearing is that "this is determined under the rules of T1", which naturally can only come into play once a battle has been accepted forthright by both parties. If you read back at the posts, Fina had changed the model of the landscape before he or Shiro began attacking each other -- and those changes not only went against the normal description of the land, but were obviously modeled to make the battle easier for him. There was no battle until Shiro responded to assail and, in that post, he questioned the fact that there would only be ONE tree around in a land that is known for it's forestry.
Why would he have to describe the details of an area he had no intentions of fighting in, under T1 regulations? This is obviously why there was no initial description. Therefore, if we were abiding by the rules of T1, wouldn't it be Shiro's post (the one where he questioned the fact that there would be only one tree, which he obviously didn't agree with) that constructed the scenery and not Fina's -- which occurred before the fight had even took place?
Nevertheless, he forfeited and I guess all of this is moot at this point. Just thought I'd make my point.
