TiP - Week 1 - Naval Orange vs Goochi Goochi Duo - Mila and Naerose are chilling on the beach, when a mighty submarine rises from the depths and pirates jump out of it!

Massive speakers shaped like Tiki idols and towering torches festoon a portion of the verdant jungle where participants and visitors are invited to partake in a luxurious buffet and enjoy the volleyball court built with sand carted from the nearby shores. Rumor has it that the hosts will tell of the legends of this previously uninhabited island, stories of a civilization that supposedly dwelt here long ago and its secret gods. In the distance, the island's sole mountain faintly rumbles ... - created on 20:31:42 01/30/2015 by Zack and last modified on 05:28:00 01/31/2015.

TIP - Week 1 - Bogard Bros vs Team Maginot Line - To appease or not to appease, that is the question. Hitomi and Alice butt-battle for supremacy; Ash and Testament attempt to slaughter each other. Who will win, who will drown, who will... propitiate the God of Fertility, 'Boo Tee'? Why did anyone think it was a GOOD idea to let a murderer join a tournament? (Winner: Bogard Brothers) - created on 22:55:10 01/31/2015 by Ash and last modified on 23:31:59 02/16/2015. Cast: Ash, Hitomi, Testament, and Alice Nakata.

Cast: Kasumi and Robo-Tran. TIP - Week 1 - Flying Tigers vs Mt. Fuji Curios - In a questionable gimmick match, two brutal men of battle are partnered with rival skaters for a fight in which somebody attempted to create a Roller Disco theme. Sagat participates because he's been promised a fight against Ryu, and when the wrong Ryu shows up, the fun doesn't last long. Disco (and everybody else) is dead. - created on 15:37:57 02/01/2015 by Ryu Hayabusa and last modified on 12:00:20 02/04/2015. Cast: Sagat, Rocket, Scratch, and Ryu Hayabusa.

Cast: Tia, Caoimhe, Jezebel, and Johnny Cage. TIP - Week 2 - Angels & Demons - On an island filled with hedonists and driven professional warriors, Amy Johnson is an anomaly, but so is the beautiful, compellingly-strange enigma known only as Angel. Their paths cross by a twist of fortune, and entangle all too deeply before they disengage... or, perhaps, not deeply enough...? (Also Featuring: the hilarious misadventures of Zack! And his wise manservant, the one and only Reginald!) - created on 06:33:09 02/05/2015 by Amy and last modified on 11:11:58 02/06/2015. Cast: Angel, Amy, and Zack. TIP - Week 2 - Obtaining Treasures - On the rampage, Saishu Kusanagi is attending to highly important business - pivotal to the tournament and, perhaps, the future of mankind - when he receives assistance from a strange and tiny source. Sometimes, the smallest packages come from the biggest hearts. This could be the start of a beautiful new future; for Saishu, for Shingo Yabuki, and for his future bride. The quest to make Shingo a man... has begun. - created on 15:17:16 02/05/2015 by Saishu and last modified on 03:31:33 02/09/2015. Cast: Saishu and Eve. TIP - Week 2 - The Golden Lancer Arrives! - Learning of the rumors of a demon raging during an official fight, the good Walter Bardsley arrives on Zack Island to investigate with the blessings of the Church. Immediately he encounters an odd procession led by none other than the ruler of this strange paradise. Needless to say, the priest and the sybarite hit it off right from the start. With a true friendship already forged, the quest of the Golden Lancer begins in earnest! - created on 00:15:39 02/06/2015 by Zack and last modified on 02:40:19 02/06/2015. Cast: Zack and Walter. TIP - Week 2 - Fuji Curios vs Team Maginot Line - The trainwreck duo shows up for their second tournament match, but whoever decided that they should duke it out with Ryu Hayabusa and some street punk named Scratch in the crater of a volcano... Is a real moron. The heat slowly whittles away at them all, leading to minimal stripping and weird hugging at the very end. Why is it that every time Ash and Hitomi fight, they forfeit? Answers possibly contained within. (Winner: Fuji Curios) - created on 17:56:07 02/06/2015 by Ash and last modified on 05:37:43 02/25/2015. Cast: Ash, Scratch, Hitomi, and Ryu Hayabusa. TIP - Week 2 - Hunting for Mermaids - At long last -- that is, after about a week -- Zack has gone mad with power. Borrowing Lee's yacht, he has set sail to cruise around the vicinity of Zack Island in search of mermaids, who rumors say sun themselves upon the rocks. That Zack's underlings spread this rumor does not seem to be of concern to him. Needless to say, participants are invited to lounge and play on the deck of the yacht or float peacefully in its vicinity as it slowly circles the island. But what lurks beneath the gentle waves? If a man cannot find a mermaid, perhaps he can create one. - created on 20:48:20 02/06/2015 by Zack and last modified on 03:18:30 02/07/2015.

Cast: Tran, Robo-Tran, Tia, and Caoimhe. TIP - Week 3 - Casinopolis - Four humans and a vampire meet at the casino on Zack Island.

Cast: Sada, Jezebel, Johnny Cage, and Eliza. TIP - Week 3 - Sadomasochism - What happens when a stalker is welcomed by the victim with open arms? Nothing, because Testament abandons Ash at the beach before the fun can even begin. Wuss. How dare he leave the lackadaisical Frenchman so blue. Zack Island is clearly not the paradise it claimed to be. - created on 02:51:54 02/12/2015 by Ash and last modified on 22:23:29 12/04/2017. Cast: Ash and Testament. TIP - Week 3 - Extreme Beach Volleyball - It was inevitable. The participants in the Trouble in Paradise tournament and their friends are assembled on the beach for a rousing beach volleyball competition. Numerous nets have been erected for the purpose of allowing these mighty warriors to display their-- let's go with skills. But in insisting that this beachball battle take place, the host ignores the warnings of his associates that inclement weather looms. Suppressing the rumors of a typhoon warning, Mad King Zack recklessly proceeds with his pulchritudinous plans. The day is clear as the guests gather, but for how long? With the winds slowly rising, the game promises to be extreme indeed ... - created on 21:03:37 02/13/2015 by Zack and last modified on 03:29:11 02/14/2015. Cast: Sada, Kasumi, Natsu, Scratch, Amy, Robo-Tran, Caoimhe, Lee Chaolan, Keith, Jira, Zack, Johnny Cage, and Ryu Hayabusa. TIP - Week 3 - Pudding Hearts vs Team Glamalot - Cute versus fabulous. What happens in this log is exactly what you'd expect. Lots of mature content. ;) ;) ;O (Winner: Definitely not Ash) - created on 15:42:47 02/14/2015 by Ash and last modified on 02:35:03 03/02/2015. Cast: Ash, Momoko, Iori, Athena, and Amy. TIP - Week 3 - Team With Himself vs Fire Flowers - What starts off as a fight atop multiple jetskis quickly turns into a very, very different fight! (Winner: Team With Himself) - created on 19:32:01 02/16/2015 by Natsu and last modified on 00:07:04 02/21/2015. Cast: Tran, Sakura, Natsu, and Robo-Tran. TIP - Week 3 - PTSD vs Going Commando - A different kind of horrible. - created on 21:20:35 02/16/2015 by Tia and last modified on 04:32:32 02/17/2015. Cast: Sada, Tiffany, Tia, and Caoimhe.

Cast: Naerose, Jezebel, Mila, Johnny Cage, and Ryu Hayabusa. TIP - Week 4 - Des ennuis au paradis - A most disastrously mismatched team of un-cooperative fighters has already come to an end but how it ended still doesn't sit well with one of those involved. The ravaged island is enjoys a tiny respite from the typhoon in which the party going islanders once again try to resume their vacation with high spirits. - created on 02:05:56 02/20/2015 by Hitomi and last modified on 23:32:12 03/24/2015. Cast: Ash and Hitomi. TIP - Week #4 - Chaolan's Island - Zack is missing in the wake of the devastating typhoon and the volcano's crater is spitting smoke and brimming with lava, but Lee Chaolan is here to take charge. Specifically, he is taking charge as captain, complete with Skipper outfit. Scheduled for today was a beachside party to celebrate the successful culmination of the Trouble in Paradise tournament, but it appears as though participants are being asked instead to aid in the search for Zack, assuming that he has been buried in the sand and not abducted by mermaids. What no one has been told is that they are also being used to clean up the mess that the storm has made of the coast -- 'they' being everyone except the finalists, who will be receiving the royal treatment along with Skipper Lee, here on Chaolan's Isle. - created on 21:32:36 02/20/2015 by Lee Chaolan and last modified on 03:09:43 02/21/2015. Cast: Tran, Sada, Scratch, Rainbow Mika, Robo-Tran, Lee Chaolan, and Johnny Cage. TIP - Week 4 - Jezebel/Cage vs Tran/Tran - Lee Chaolan nearly has everything on the island utterly destroyed. But some of it still stands. Fortunately, the last batch of insured items is both Zack's car, and an extension collection of barrels. Both teams should work hard to break both of them throughout the fight. Also there are a bunch of tiki statues too around here. You should break them as well for insurance purposes too probably. - created on 20:26:56 02/23/2015 by Jezebel and last modified on 21:58:19 02/25/2015. Cast: Tran, Robo-Tran, Jezebel, and Johnny Cage.

TIP - Week 5 - Tak and the Power of Juju - As the chaos comes to a head, having suffered endless indignities at the hands of Zack and his cohort, the ancient guardian Tak awakens to wreak vengeance on the island and its remaining inhabitants, demanding Zack's head as tribute. With Zack nowhere to be found, those fighters who remain or have come to visit are begged to stop the onslaught of the animated statue and its tiki horde. Even as Trouble in Paradise appears in desperate straits, though, the film crews doggedly film away. It's the final battle, after all. The viewers at home don't want to miss that! - created on 20:27:09 02/27/2015 by Tak and last modified on 13:57:46 03/02/2015. Cast: Sada, Ken Masters, Robo-Tran, Johnny Cage, Ryu Hayabusa, and Tak.
