Hjolda my friends!

It would appear our unreliable acquaintance Chaz is back, once again having made a bad deal with some force that likely intends us ill.

He is working for someone called the witness along with a dark haired and mustachioed man know only as the announcer. They both appear to be coerced into service at the danger of their lives.

They are enacting pit fights involving a bevy of strange creatures that are matched against our town. I would imagine the creatures are also slaves as well.

We are remotely viewed,helped and hindered from strange glowing orbs that seem to hold the presence of many others.

I would ask those that witnessed these fights, and those with previous experience with Chaz (or just helpfully intentioned folk) to assist with research and fact finding about his new master. I suspect it presages a dangerous ordeal for Travance. But I cannot speculate beyond that without more knowledge of our watchers.

Yours in honor and service.

Might I inquire who this "Chaz" is and what they have to do with the pit fighting and slavery ring? If theres anything I can do to help I will gladly do so without hesitation. I just need more information first.

First off there were no slaves. I DON'T DEAL IN SLAVES

Second off my employer is paying to watch you guys fight of your own volition, plus you aren't the only contestants teams group of adventures they have offered such deals to.

Lastly I also helped you lot deal with fallow a few months back, so just do me a tiny favor as pay back and keep the bosses entertained... it will be worth your while.

We got some more information which i'm going to mention here.

I will likely get details wrong, so I request that those who are smarter than me or managed to write something down correct my findings.

First things first, Chaz and his companions, and ALL the fighters we saw in this strange vision Moostrav was able to conjure up by working with Oakley (My sincere thanks to you both, I owe you a debt of honor) are somehow enslaved to the 3 witnesses. There are three... people of power. We could see only outlines and that they were a bunch of damned fancy ponces, beyond that I have no details. They have some sort of arcane chains about the fighters, and whoever wins the tournament shall have the freedom of all those who participated within their hands.

I propose Travance form a team with the intent of winning, and also figure out some way of disrupting and permanently shattering the fun of these so-called witnesses. They have apparently been playing games with the lives of people for 200 years. This will end in Travance.

While I am myself a man of honor and will not cheat blade to blade, there are a lot of angles to be worked in these contests. I would imagine our more roguish and clever folk might relish a chance to sway the odds on our favor, or somehow make it so that no matter what takes place in the Arena we are victorious. I suggest those of you of this inclination begin planning, though I of course wouldn't presume to dictate details. If someone would like to coordinate efforts and organize things so that we're all not pulling against each other that might be useful.

Another thing of note is that we'll have allies, or at least those that would likely be on our side. A noble person of Kormyre, though of older clothes than is currently in fashion within the place was seen. I wasn't able to place them, but a suitably skilled and knowledgeable researcher with cultural and historical focuses might have more luck there (oog note: Consult with Matt M if you want to research this). one of the food-sellers who seened forced cheerful but was actually fairly annoyed about her position might also be a possible ally. Beyond that, I know not, but it would appear that there is a great following to these great battles beyond just the Witnesses themselves. We should prepare accordingly.

Of other note is that the contest isn't just with blade and spell, subtlety and misdirection. There were debates, group fights, personal duels, and other kinds of contests being adjudicated from the visions we were shown. So this isn't simply a contest of might and magic, but of other kinds of performance as well. All can serve the cause of freedom, if we so wish it.

The floating vision and communication crystals the witnesses used are becoming more common within the proper, so be aware your actions may be espied by an audience you don't wish. At least we have some idea of their operation now, at least those of us of a more arcane and academical bent do. They remain outside my kenning except in the most vague sense.

Lastly, there is apparently a champion of the witnesses who has never been contesting a battle, but is available for a fight should the winner of the overall contest score enough victories. All we saw of them was black armor, and that they were... most formidable. It might be enough to start looking into this unfought being, and try to ascertain the ace that the witnesses are holding back.

If anyone can do some more digging on who these witnesses might be, based on the records of some of their previous contest that might be good. The first that was recorded appears to have been on Coasthaven, so you might do well to start your research there.

I'll update this further and monitor it as more people add their comments and thoughts.

I remain in Service and Honor,

Travance, in case no one has informed you, instead of willingly creating our own team as some of us intended for these fights, we have all been forced into something large scale I do not quite understand the details of.

If you have researched this in the last couple of months, please let me know so we may start consolidating our work.

Chaz, I am requesting you give us the details you can of the contract you signed us into.

I am more interested in the position of the common folk and those visiting the Proper that do not count as subjects of Kormyre yet because we currently have visitors.

You also confirmed none of the contestants are actually dying during the contest?
Knowledge of these facts before the actual game would help us fight to our fullest, unless the Witnesses want to sit around and watch a handful of us only stall fights while we try and learn this information.

You mentioned there were 'wondering encounters' of a variety of creatures for extra points. Is there a designated area those not participating may be moved?

I know there will be more things we will be researching, but these seem to be the most important requests right now.

Thanks.

Ilana,
If you're looking to figure out a safe place for people to be while the contest is going on, I remember Chaz saying something along the lines of the other contestants can't attack us in the Inn. I'm guessing these Witnesses are wanting it to be a sanctuary of sorts. But I think that also implies that people can be attacked outside of the Inn at any time.

Bottom line, if you want to be safe, go to the Inn.

We worked on the Coast Haven lead some and were able to learn that the 'A Triumph of Champions' tournament was decades ago and *not* the first kind of contest like this. There were other, more private contests that occurred beforehand.

So here is a query, what happens when we win? I mean specifically with the soles of the other contestants, are they spread equally amongst the winners, dose one person get them? This is rather important as I know some people in Travance would keep the soles for themselves, so any advanced understanding of what happens with them would be usfull in returning them to the freedom they deserve.

Also, what is this "Grand prize" Chaze talked about.

Before it gets too out of hand, I'd like to address the danger overconfidence can bring.

"When we win" implies that we are certain victory. In a contest that souls are gambled, it is important to not assume that we will win this competition.

I wish you luck Travance. When souls are on the line, it does not hurt.

SO,

I pulled some strings in your favor. The main prize this year happens to be one of the major components needed to fix your towns gates of passage... very rare, and VERY expensive.

as far as the livelihoods of the losers, its a majority rules sort of thing.

A bit more info for you lot, The witness' champions' soul does not go to the winner, however if you face the champion and they win their soul back, you very well may become the new champion.... I'm working some loopholes to help keep you guys out of that sort of deal.

I've got a question, what can we do to counteract any underhanded tactics that the other teams may employ? Because it's a high chance that someone will.
