Thegye Autumn Tourney - ROUND 1!

Today is the first day of the tournament! Crowds of spectators 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, which carries with it many brown and gold leaves. 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 cool breeze. From the taverns, shouts and songs can be heard from the early partyers, getting their fill of the mulled wine and hard cider. 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, dressed in festive fall costumes. Seated, the Diarchs extend their hands and signal the beginning of the tourney. Let the best warrior win!

As the last contestants leave the ring, the crowd begins to disperse.

The rest of the crowd leaves, some heading home, others to parties, and still others to the taverns to celebrate wins or losses. All in all, everyone has enjoyed the first day of the tourney and many look forward to the events tomorrow!
