Thegye Autumn Tourney - ROUND 3!

Today is the third 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 second day of the tourney. Let the best warrior win!


-(1) MIAKA MODROW vs. (12) CHRIS PRATT
-

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.

Hoping to catch his more skilled opponent off-guard, Chris charges, swinging his kama at the Renarii warrior. Stunned by the vehemence of the attack, Miaka is unable to defend herself as the American slashes down at her and scores a long, thin cut across her jaw. Reeling back, she suffers another blow, this time a hack across the arm from Chris's second kama. However, his third blow is blocked by Miaka's katana. Moving swiftly, she bashes her elbow into Chris's nose, knocking him out cold. Miaka Modrow, the contestant from Renaria- wins, defeating Chris Pratt of Arudis!



-(2) SHAKTHI MAHARAJ vs. (11) KENNETH “COMTÉ” PARMIGIANO-REGGIANO
-

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.

Drawing his legendary weapon, Shakthi rushes at the Tagrai warrior, knocking aside the piece of pungent cheese he was munching on and cutting deep into his side with a single blow. Screaming, more from the loss of the cheese than the pain, Kenneth raises his cheese board and brings it crashing down on the Indian's head three times, with little effect. Laughing off the blows, Shakthi straightens up, only to be met full in the face by a whiff of Kenneth “Comté” Parmigiano-Reggiano's rancid breath. His eyes roll into the back of his head and he collapses backward. Kenneth “Comté” Parmigiano-Reggiano, the contestant from Greater Tagrai wins, defeating Shakthi Maharaj of Indusse!

The two warriors charge towards each other, clashing in a cacophony of weapons and armor. They hack and smash and bash, each attempting to overcome the other. Finally, after three minutes of non-stop fighting, the dust settles to see Krister, wounded in the side by Ayykhaali's sword, stumbling back.

Madog circles Stafan and then suddenly rushes in to attack. Swinging his bronze battleaxes, he pushes the Ruwanian soldier back. Stafan dodges under the swinging blades and uses his knife to cut a small nick in Madog's leg. Enraged, the Charishsteinian raises his axes and brings them cutting down, slamming Stafan into the ground and slicing through him.

Mydogatemyhomework, knowing he was outranged, stoops and picks up a rock, bouncing it off of Tree Leaves's knee. Sneering, Tree fires two quick shots, the first taking the Lantarian in the upper thigh and the second piercing his chest. Gurgling, the sad excuse for not turning in your homework fell over, dead. Tree Leaves, the contestant from Aquastareite wins, defeating Mydogatemyhomework of Lanteria!

Grum, roaring a challenge at the old man, rushes forward. The moment before he strikes, the Mad Monk steps forward, trips, and loses a grip on his book, allowing it to fly and smash into Grum's shins. Falling over, Grum grunts as his own scimitar cuts deep into his own chest. 'The Mad Monk' Mirek, the contestant from The Great Protectorate wins, defeating Grum Winterdust of Zakobia!

Muttering, Mirek tears free and attempts to rush to Tree and whack him in the head with "The Eminence of Monarchy In Form of a Dialogue, Divided into four Books: By the High and Mighty Lord, Akram &c.", but his chest is skewered by another arrow from Tree Leaves's bow. Tree Leaves, the contestant from Aquastareite wins, defeating 'The Mad Monk' Mirek of The Great Protectorate!


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 third day of the tourney and many look forward to the events tomorrow!
