Aoife vs Anselmaus vs Diritas
The final round will be 1v1v1, consisting of four passes on killmode spar each. Each finalist will roll a dice, lowest roll goes first, next lowest goes second, and so on. Re-roll to break ties.

Once everyone has made four passes on killmode spar, switch to killmode stun. The finalist who went last gets to initiate combat, attacking either of his opponents. Once this is done, open combat has begun, and any opponent may attack any other opponent, until only one person is left conscious. They shall be the winner.

Normal contest rules apply unless otherwise stated, and is left to the participants to find the time that works best for them.

As it relies on three people to coordinate, there is no singular preset time for this.

All three of us have some craziness at present/on the horizon. Might be a bit of a delay for the end of this, but it just means you have longer to speculate, set the odds, and cast your bets.

Areia puts a pair of ivory dice in a dusky pouch with skeletal embroidery.
Anselmaus's gaze wanders from contestant to contestant, and he takes a few paces to one side to even the field. He rests his hand, still, on the sheathed blade on his hip and says, 'No matter how this ends, I am proud to fight you both here, to finish it.'.
a giant diamond encrusted sun dial on a thick gold chain glows briefly as Diritas activates it.
Areia folds her gloves in her lap to watch on silently.
You say 'Four passes each, then. Then on to general melee and the last warrior standing. You may begin when ready, Lord Marshall.'
Anselmaus steps back to plant his feet a shoulderwidth apart, drawing his right heel back as he reaches for his heavy weapon and draws it free.
Anselmaus gets a wickedly sharp silversteel warsword with a swept hilt from an imbricated silversteel scabbard hung from a wide swordbelt.
Anselmaus holds a wickedly sharp silversteel warsword with a swept hilt in both of his hands.
Diritas settles the point of his blade to the cobbles, then dips his head slightly at Anselmaus's words as he replies firmly, 'You're warriors of a newer age. Whatever comes, win or loss for any, I see only worthy opponents before me.'.
Aoife searches the ground for a moment longer before scratching her toe across a spot with a slight nod. She turns back to Anselmaus and Diritas and lifts her chin, 'Aye, I dinnae think any of us'll no' be deservin' here.'.
You hear the sound of footsteps from the east.
Saevitia runs in from the east.
Saevitia gets a herald's trumpet from a small box of interlocked cogs and gears.

Anselmaus uncovers his ears.
Saevitia blows the trumpet with a thundering roar, more powerful than ever before!
Saevitia yells 'HEAR YE, HEAR YE! The final battle of the ultimate tournament to decide the strongest on Toril will begin with all haste at the Fields of Triumph! Waste not the chance to witness this momentous event that will go down in history!'
Diritas looks at Saevitia.
You hear the sound of footsteps from the east.
Mylnysa walks in from the east.
Saevitia nods at Mylnysa.

Diritas glances at Areia.
Diritas remarks at Areia, 'Have you bet on it?'.
Areia says to Diritas 'Hundreds.'
Aislynn looks at Mylnysa.
Saevitia asks Areia 'Want to take another bet?'
Mylnysa looks around slowly then moves to the seats.
Aoife considers Diritas steadily, altering grip on the hilt of her blade as she glances over to Saevitia and lets go a held breath.
Mylnysa sits down and relaxes.
Areia says to Saevitia 'I've fifty on the Torman.'
Areia says to Saevitia 'Er, would put I mean.'
Areia looks at Diritas.
Saevitia says to Areia 'I don't have fifty right now, but if you'll indulge me a few hours to collect it. I'll put fifty on Aoife.'
Mylnysa looks at Areia.
Areia nods at Saevitia.
Saevitia says to Areia 'If the Stag wins, we draw.'
Anselmaus's heavy gaze wanders Aoife's figure and he bends his chin, a minute gesture ere he lowers his visor and pulls his cowl higher. He lifts his blade in a heavy, fool's guard and composes himself in his edge of the field.
Areia says to Saevitia 'That's not to be a possibility. One of us will most certainly win.'
Diritas turns his blade slowly and carefully over his wrist, then settles it across the other as he tells Aoife and Anselmaus, 'I shall pray you're each ready. May honour and fit-fighting decide who wins today, I don't count either of you among the sort to let it be otherwise.'.
Areia grins.
Saevitia says to Areia 'Seems likely.'
Anselmaus looks at Aoife.
Diritas gets a signet ring engraved with an ornate crux from a dark green scalemail bag.

Diritas stops using a ring made of stone.
A caravan enters the city.
Saevitia scuffs her foot into the ground, then turns to stare briefly at Diritas.
Areia murmurs aside to Saevitia while she watches, 'I'll give him this much. He's not to use any boring trickery like Most of the others have.'.
Aoife rests her weight back onto her right foot, her gaze sweeping to Anselmaus with a very fleeting wink before she nods once to Diritas.
Saevitia hmms thoughtfully at Areia, then murmurs back, 'Some people just don't know how to have an interesting fight.'.
Areia nods at Saevitia.
Mylnysa leans forward a bit as she stares silently at the field.
Anselmaus's breathing settles as his gaze wavers, only slowly, from Diritas to Aoife and back, locked now on Diritas's form and the weapon presented.
Deekin the wagon driver yells, 'In 30 minutes, a caravan will depart towards Zazesspur.'
A caravan enters the city.
Saevitia coughs, then adds, still whispering, 'It might be awkward if anyone but Aoife wins, because I already bought fireworks of her primary colours.'.
Areia smirks.

Diritas's lithe frame lowers into a careful stance, blade held in a roof's guarde for a moment before he explodes forwards at Aoife ere ducking low and swinging viciously across at Anselmaus.

Lylena blinks, though keeps at a fair distance from the general crowd, clasping her hands behind herself as she watches on curiously.
Areia's eyes shift to follow Aoife's introduction into the bout curiously.

Aoife keeps her weight resting back on her right leg, watching the exchange between Anselmaus and Diritas, her eyes narrowing just a little. She waits just long enough for the final blows before pushing her weight forwards and slashing towards Diritas's flank.
Aoife approaches Diritas and prepares to engage him in combat!

Areia grins.
Anselmaus uses the opportunity to fall back in a dropped step, keeping his blade out front and leveled between the two as he moves to gather his breath and consider what will follow.
Saevitia balls up her hand into a fist and shakes it lightly.
Areia murmurs aside to Saevitia beneath the din of steel clashingto steel, 'He is doing not so well. hm, hm.'.
Mylnysa lips tick up in a grin faintly as she keeps watching.

Diritas grits his teeth at the series of blows, seeming caught off guard by Aoife's continued focus on himself and catching steel for his error. He jumps back, swinging hard at Aoife in a faint before a second burst of preternatural speed carries him into Anselmaus with a series of vicious swings...

Lylena glances between Diritas, Anselmaus and Aoife as the fight progresses, letting out a quiet, 'Hmph.' as she shifts her weight lightly on her feet.

Anselmaus drops back even further, pushed to the edge of the circuit. He does his best to keep Diritas at bay, shifting the weight between his feet to duck his head and push off the wall. He shoulders heavily into Diritas to separate the distance and brings his heavy blade up and down in a heavy hacking motion. He grunts and strains at the clash, struggling to break Diritas's guard.

Saevitia leans over to whisper to Areia, 'Just like I thought it would be, it's basically a two on one fight.'.
Areia grins back at Saevitia, 'A fine chance for Marshall to show off the unbeatable might he's always ranting about hm?'.

Aoife takes a longer breath, apparently deliberately slowing and calming herself, her eyes not leaving Diritas and Anselmaus. Her gaze switches between the two again, settling on Diritas for a moment before she turns her attention to Anselmaus and lifts her chin just a little. She raises her blade high, looking down it at Anselmaus before stepping forwards with long strides.

Areia throws another encouraging if low and not overly enthusiastic cheer for Anselmaus, then she leans back a bit in her seat and tells Saevitia, 'You might be right, though. It'll be close between the other two..'.

Diritas spits a mouthful of blood through his visor, his movements still quick but with the tell-tale sluggishness of a man closer to the ground than the air. He eyes Anselmaus and Aoife a moment, gaze narrowing, then he simply strides forward before whipping his blade about in a vicious arc for Aoife's frame...

Mylnysa shrugs, 'I didn't want to say it.'.
Mylnysa refocuses on the fighters.

Aoife's cheeks puff out for a second, considering Anselmaus and Diritas with a keen gaze before giving Diritas her full attention and an almost apologetic flicker of her eyebrows. She pauses to rest her weight onto her right foot before lunging forwards with a grunt of effort.

Anselmaus murmurs across the field, 'We ought to aid him before we continue.'.

Lylena snorts quietly with a slight shake of her head.

Diritas nods up at Aoife, shifting stiffly where he's at before pulling upright to use his bearing sword as a crutch to depart the field for the sidelines.
Anselmaus adjusts the grip on his sword's hilt and tilts the heavy implement forward, smiling thinly through the slits of his heaume to tell Aoife, 'You have come so far, my lady, you ought end it well.'.
Lylena watches Diritas quit the field with a roll of her shoulders before looking back between Anselmaus and Aoife.
Diritas sits and relaxes.
Saevitia moves away from the stands long enough to press something chocolatey and soft into Diritas's hands, wordlessly, before she makes her way to stand next to Areia again and whispers, 'Watch out for the amethyst flash!'.
Saevitia gives A chocolate-dipped hot cake stuffed with cream and jelly to Diritas.
Areia grins.
Saevitia hmms, 'The Purple Rose of Waterdeep?'.
Saevitia shakes her head.
Saevitia looks at Aoife.
Areia nods, 'She's looking pretty good. But..' She lets the unspoken contradiction hang, leaning forward now to watch carefully.
Diritas looks from the cake in his hands towards Saevitia, hard eyes a mixture of scrutiny and gratitude, then he wordlessly bites into the cake.

Aoife steps back from Diritas, pacing across the field and considering Anselmaus's form solemnly. She finally settles back into her stance and lifts her chin to Anselmaus with a hint of a smile, 'We'll see, I'll know if ye're no' givin' it yer all.' She dips her chin then in a nod and waits two seconds more before starting towards Anselmaus, waiting until near the last before raising her sword.

Congratulations, Aoife! She pretty much deserved this the most, and proved she had what it takes.
"He served, but found no pride in service. He fought, but took no joy in victory. He drank, to drown his pain in a sea of wine... ...It was hate that drove him. Though he committed many sins, he never sought forgiveness."

Agreed! Came out on top through effort and hard work! Well done Aoife!

A goblin, a trickster, a warrior? A nameless terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. A most feared being in all the cosmos. Nothing could stop, hold, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
