The cloaked figure re-materializes in the quarters of @Grimmorith, somewhere it did not plan for. It glances at it’s amulet, which is now faded from it’s usual glowing nature.
“I am the one who brought you here my sibling.”, speaks a voice from a dark corner.
The cloaked figure freezes in terror at the familiar voice, the voice
that belongs to the presence the figure has been actively avoiding.
“I wanted to wait, but if you want confrontation, then I am
prepared.”, the cloaked figure speaks, with a small shake in it’s voice.
The unseen individual smiles ever so slightly, recognizing the fear in
the cloaked figure’s voice. As the unseen individual raises it’s hand
the door to @Grimmorith quarters bursts open.
Standing there, in full combat prepardness, is the Templar.
“My Liege! Intruders!”, shouts Templar, as he turns to vanquish the interlopers in his Master’s quarters.
He turns to an empty room, the voices now silent and no trace of any trouble.
The Competitors had an exhaustive, event-filled day. Personal
contests of superiority took place between the Competitors such as
Archery, Scouting, War Tactics and even a Tug-O’-War.
As they returned to the main compound and gathered in the vast banquet hall for the Mid-day feast, @yonizaf is stopped by a servant.
“Sir, you have a visitor whom requested your presence in the gallery.”
Visibly shaken and without a pause for a response from @yonizaf, the servant turns and retires to another side room. @yonizaf procedes into the gallery and comes face to face with the infamous Keeper of Souls!
“I pledge my abilities to your cause, your dedication to Death has earned my respect mortal.”
“My brother knows I am here, but not why I have come.”, thought the cloaked figure as drops a rune-covered coin into the empty mud-covered boot of @actreal, laying outside his quarters.
@actreal returns from the Mid-day feast and jumps back into his gear, boots and
all, slamming his already sore heel into the coin. With a shout of pain, @actreal quickly removes his foot from his boot and removes the coin.
He examines the coin, never seeing anything like it before. He
returns his foot to his boot and winces in pain, the coin has opened a
bloody wound. There’s even blood on the coin!
@actreal continues outside for the second half of the day’s activities and
tosses the coin off into the courtyard and out of the compound, now
being the last of the Competitors to go and head out of the compound’s
grounds into the great field outside it.
The coin burns and then melts into the grounds into a vast puddle, then reforms into in actual living Chimera!
The competitors gather in a wide circle, with the Commissioner in the middle, to await his instructions.
Suddenly, the sounds of squeals alert everyone to the presence of a rushing Boar Rider!
The Boar Rider weaves through the Competitors as they take wild swings, expertly dodging them. Suddenly, @Bobomb swing up behind the Boar Rider, on top of the boar, as they head towards the compound.
“I take my leave while I discuss compensation with my companion here!”, shouts @Bobomb, as he and the Boar Rider speed off.
“Fancy that, buying the power of the Goblins”, groans @DemonicDraco.
“Big talk from one who had a Goblin flown in by rocket. Was Goblin-by-boar not fast enough?”, quips @Royalty.
The Commissioner sounds a horn and the Competitors turn to receive his instructions…
