Thegye Spring Tourney Event: FINALS!

Today is the final day of the tournament! Crowds flock to the tournament ring outside the castle, just to the north of the city. All around, banners, streamers, and colorful flags flap in the wind. Adults and children alike speak in excited tones, each one looking forward to the event to come. Jugglers, musicians, and jesters roam the streets, adding an air of jolliness and gaiety to the warm breeze. From the taverns, shouts and songs can be heard from the early partyers, getting their fill of the cheap beer and fruity cordials. At the ring itself, already the seats have begun to fill up, and the guests of honor begin to arrive. Soon, only standing room will be left for the onlookers. The trumpets sound the royal fanfare as the Diarchs make their way to their thrones, dresses in springtime colors. Seated, the Diarchs extend their hands and signal the beginning of the day. Let the best warrior win!

BARRÁT THE WOLF vs. JACK AARON

The two warriors enter the ring to loud cheering and applause. Each makes his way before the royal platform and bows deeply to the Diarchs. Then, at the signal of the referee, the fight begins. Jack, twanging his bow, sizes up the Wolf. The Phusditian swings his saber back and forth, ready to take down the opponent.

Drawing back his bow to the fullest extent, Jack looses it towards Barrátt, hitting him high in the shoulder. Grunting, Barrátt reachest out with his saber, flicking it to knock aside Jack's bow. Wide eyed, Jack raises his arms in a last feeble defense as the Phusditian hacks downwards. Barrátt the Wolf, the contestant from Great Katyusha, wins, beating Jack Aaron of Pland Adanna!


As the match ends, the Diarchs rise to cheers and applause from the crowd. Below them, in the ring Barrátt the Wolf stands, victorious. The Diarchs raise their hands. "This warrior has shown great prowess and skill against the best warriors our world has to offer! Let it be known that Barrátt the Wolf is the new Champion of Thegye!" The crowd roars in approval and Barrátt is lifted on the shoulders of enthusiastic fans.

Oto, holding his stone in his hand, confidently faces Shawn. The wary Ellenburgian lifts his bat. Winding up like a pitcher, Oto chucks his stone at Shawn, who is unable to duck in time and is struck head-on by the speeding stone. A loud crack resounds from the skull as a groan escapes the crowd. Shawn slumps, supine. Oto, the contestant from The Great Protectorate wins, defeating Shawn Shady of Ellenburg!

The two warriors enter the ring to loud cheering and applause. Each makes his way before the royal platform and bows deeply to the Diarchs. Then, at the signal of the referee, the fight begins.

Graham laughs as he picks out his most pungent cheese blend. Alexander, however, prepared for his fight with the stinky cheese man by wrapping cloth around his nose. Unaffected by the stank of the cheese, Alexander cuts off the hand holding the offensive dairy. Screaming in pain, Graham falls to his knees, smashing the cheese beneath his knee. Grunting, he pulls out a slice of red and green cheese. Screaming between mouthfuls, he crams it into his mouth. Struggling to his feet, his face red, he lifts his last hand. Alexander runs him through unceremoniously. Alexander, the contestant from LollerLand wins, defeating Graham “Killer Cheese” Roquefort of Greater Tagrai!

A gurgling noise escapes her throat as she falls back, dead. Alexander, the contestant from LollerLand wins, defeating Jeluce of Thegye!
