Haven’t had a lot of time to write more records, because we are busy people! So I will be cutting down a lot of information, so starting from where I left off. We spent some time aboard this giant chariot, getting to know some of the fighters around us. Then after arriving at our apparent destination (I really have no idea how long we were in there, time was like an illusion in that thing). King Tarkinian gave everyone their first challenge. Which was a way to weed out the weak from the strong, so it was a massive battle royale. All the sentinels were put in different arenas, so I do not know who, or what they fought. What I did fight was a Dire Crocodile. And in the few opening moments guess what happened? Yep made a beeline for me then proceeded to swallow me whole. My weapons could not break through its insides, so I relied on Galahad to finish the job. After she slew the creature I saw a golden opportunity to impress the crowd. So On my way out I found the beasts heart, and took it with me. After making it back out, I stood atop the creature and declared that I would not lose in this tournament. I think the crowd was impressed. Then Everyone was ushered out of the stage and healed by some golden legionnaires. I saw all of my comrades, each one had made it past their first trial. The next step was to have an interview with the tournament organizer? (I think that's his title for this) Lord Zelakrun. The point of the interview was so Zelakrun could gauge our power and put us in a ranking so we could face people of similar strength. For my interview I shot a few arrows, and showed off Galahad. For these efforts Lord Zelakrun placed me at rank 36 a few ranks below Lucius. The first match would happen a few hours after the interview. My first opponent was a crowd favorite. In the opening few minutes he challenged me to a honorable duel a one on one fight without Galahad. I had no interest in that since I used a bow, while he used two swords, so not really fair. However the guy had no interest in an honorable fight, as first thing he did was throw his sword at me. Which he could teleport to, and that he soaked in poison beforehand. Not really a stand up guy. However with Galahad’s help we managed to beat our opponent and honestly, really wanted to kill him, but only did so much to knock him out. All the sentinels managed to beat their first opponents and proceed onto the next round. My next opponent was a redlander called Volgira Darkmane, from the same Darkmane family who use to own the ruins where Sunreach now stands. Also as a side note, her and Count Raiche are related. Volgira and I agreed to make our duel non lethal. Lord Zelakrun also announced that there would be community challenges where everyone would be allowed to attend. The first one was a fight against an outsider of random chance. So as the Sentinels we all agreed to fight together, and to may great pleasure, the outsider that was summoned was a Ghaele Azata. An outsider from my plane of heaven, meeting one in combat like this was a great honour. We eventually overcame this trail, and in return for beating her, she gave me an amulet. With it I could call upon her for aid in my hour of need. It was comforting to know that I had my own guardian angel watching over me. The next day I watched some of the fights. Matrena fought against Xaric, and to my slight joy lost. Now I wouldn’t have to fear watching her die against a strong opponent. I didn’t want Xaric to die either, but you know, I like Matrena a bit more. Lucius defeated his opponent, some kind of strange Orc abomination. After time he struck in down, it would seem to reform, and it just kept attacking him. I was worried for my friend, but he eventually killed it, winning the next round. Scire also won by using her words (honestly her fight was kinda boring not gonna lie). I didn’t see Scarloc fight but he lost against his foe, but lived! So all good there. As for my fight, the arena layout was switched to a swamp. Not one of my favored terrains. Volgira was also a paladin with a strange trick up her sleeve. She always seemed to shrug off my first arrow every time I shot her. Considering that every shot after the first one my aim got a little worse, meant that I could barely harm her. Coupled with her ability to heal herself made her a very strong opponent for me. At first I thought of just using Galahad to move and shot, slowly wittle her down. However the crowd wanted an exciting fight. If I did that I would lose the crowds approval. So instead I stood my ground and had Galahad be a front liner for me. However Volgira proved to be too powerful for us and eventually overpowered Galahad and then myself. On a bright note I wouldn’t have to fight Urzor, who had managed to kill all of his opponents in one punch, also I invited Volgira to Sunreach, I had made an unlikely friend through this tournament. The community challenge for that night was to defeat a lion of kord. Giant Tigers, who easily dwarfed even Galahad. However only four could enter this challenge, and so it was Lucius, myself, Tim barbossa, a giant of a man (also Scarlocs opponent) and Balgus. Scarloc was nice enough to play team manager and got all of us together, so thank you Scarloc. The hope was that Tim and Balgus could pin the creature down. However this creature was truly massive. Even with Tim and Balgus it simply managed to keep getting up. Then it struck me. I’m a Nature Warden. I can literally talk to animals. At will. So I managed to convince this giant cat not to eat us, in exchange for being given a treat. It worked somehow, and in exchange for it surrendering to us, I gave it all of my cave dragon meat. A treat meant for galahad but she will understand I hope. The next day came, the first task was to talk to Simon. He had also entered the tournament and was ranked second. I gave him a warning about the Hen Avok, and to pass the message along to Lord Kronsieg. Simon dismissed me, stating that the Hen Avok were simply children stories. Then I spent the rest of the day watching the tournament with Matrena and Scarloc. Lucius in an impressive display of martial prowess managed to beat his opponent, one Arcturod. A Udaeus with a very unique personality. Then it was onto Scires fight. Her opponent was called the Gray Widow an archer whose skills easily beat mine. Scire once again tried to overpower her foe with her mind. However this time something was wrong. Half way through the fight Scire shouted that her opponent was getting outside help. A violation of the rules. The fight stopped and the Gray Widow was surrounded by more Udaeus. It was revealed that she was indeed getting outside help. Her hood and mask were taken off. To my horror I recognized the face. It was Bedivere. I knew she was alive, but seeing her here in these circumstances, was still shocking. Then in a bright flash of purple she was gone. Now I have a new mission, to find Bedivere. With Scire declared the winner the next community challenge was announced. It was also a duel, anyone could challenge anyone. Accepting a challenge from an opponent with a higher ranking would net you gold, accepting a challenge from an unknown opponent and who was of a higher ranking would also net you a lot of gold. So Lucius and I came up with a plan. He would challenge me. However our duel would be this. We would brawl for a few rounds, then drink out of keg of beer, rinse and repeat. Whoever passed out first would be the winner. I was also issued a challenge from a unknown stronger opponent. Thinking odds were it was Simon, I agreed to it. O boy was I wrong. My opponent was in fact Urzor. The guy who killed everyone in one hit. Banking on being able to at least out maneuver him I sat on top of Galahad. I underestimated Urzor, and in the span and a second. Her crossed the distance between us, and began to grapple Galahad. In a few successful punches he knocked our Galahad. My link with her wasn't separated so I knew she wasn’t dead. Then he turned to face me, and in a flash he also picked me up by my neck. He brought me close to his helmet and began to whisper to me. Urzor was in fact Rul Nok. He informed me that Myzorok had rallied all the Orcs, and had made an army of gugs. The same near immortal warriors that Lucius had almost died against. He warned me that in two weeks he would march upon Dorwin, and an army was being sent to Sunreach. He stated that he came here to warn me, and that this was the last favor he could do. That was the last thing I remember before being knocked out. Galahad and myself were healed by some clerics, the first thing I knew I had to do was warn the others. I gathered them up, minus Percy Scire casted a spell so we could not be overheard. I shared with the others the warning I had gotten. We agreed that we had to stop the tournament and warn the Kings of Dorwin. As a group we managed to get an audience with King Tarkinian and Lord Zelakrune. After some convincing we persuaded them that this threat was serious. They agreed to postpone the tournament until the time of Iron. Lord Zelakrune also allowed us to recruit one of the Udeus legions, specifically Arcturods Legion to help with the defense of Sunreach. We then all agreed to find people to hire or convince to come with us to aid in the defense of our town. In total we got Tim Barbossa, Yara Silvertounge (who Scarloc is taking a fancy to), Joanne Stone (we know who she’s courting), and um some other that I may or may not of forgotten about. We also convinced Magistar Daario Sand, captain of the royal sunspot to transport us to first Dayhill (to drop off some people from the tournament and warn Lady Folcey) then to Sunreach. The Royal Sunspot is a ship. But one that can fly. In space. Honestly probably one of the most enriching experiences I have experienced. It made me realize how small our world was, that and it was round. (I know some people back in Yampfield who owe me a few gold coins now.) However not everyone enjoyed the ride as much as I did, Matrena and Galahad were not a fan, so I had to comfort them. We landed in Dayhill a few minutes after leaving Latun, a trip over land would've taken a few weeks at least. There we dropped off Matrena and other Dayhill residents. Minus Balgus because we forgot. Matrena and I said our farewells, and promised to see each other after the siege. Then we made our way to Sunreach. Daario Sand decided to stay for awhile, he said he wouldn’t offer any help in the fight, but he would shoot a single crossbow bolt, and in a pinch evacuate people on the Royal Sunspot. Once we landed I made my way to The House of The Eternal Hunt. I briefed Kartmat and Dunamod and what was coming for us. A Udaeus Priest perform a ceremony to summon his comrades. I ordered that Dunamod Kartmar, and some Gilded Archers train our men as best they could. We organized a rally in the Market Square. We informed our people that soon our town would be under siege, and that we would be recruiting as many people as possible, to aid in our homes defense. Then we began to prepare for war. We had Yara make landmines, giant metal obstacles to prevent carts and large scale siege equipment from getting close. Log rollers to crush attackers who got to close, and a pitfall trap along all of our wall. We recruited the followers of the Axe and the Brothers of Iron to aid us as well. After all that, two weeks had passed. We no longer had time to prepare our defenses, because the siege of Sunreach had begun.
