    Alright, if there's going to be a surprise it'll probably be now. With Leila gone, any traitor or assassin won't get a better chance. God, please let Lucas come up here for some reason. I could use help if there's a trap.

    Danil climbs up and takes a seat just a few places away from the princess's box, and keeps a close eye on it as the Leila-Zach spar starts up.

    Zachary chuckles to himself about his joke.
    Eventually a young boy comes up to you. "Sir Smith, I have been told to report to you, that you should return to the arena to get ready for your spar with Lady Leila." He bows trying to show respect.

    "Uh huh. I see that The Big Fight is coming! Okay, I need to find a place in the audience, so I don't miss the moment when Leila wipes the floor with you.
    ... Man, I would really like to have a camera here..."

    He says to Zachary when he hears the news... and yes, he is making fun of him...

    To Lee "Well, in our world it's like a place from our time sent few hundreds years into the past... now sorry, but my friend has a fight and I wouldn't like to miss it, so I guess we will continue this conversation another time..." He says and turns to walk away, but stops after few steps to add "Could you tell Mori about the fight? He wouldn't like to miss it."

    After saying all of this he walks towards arena and tries to find a free place to sit and notices Danil.
    "Hello m'lord, wanna share comments on the big fight with an old friend?" He asks with a wide smile on his face.

    Most of the fights have already passed. You're given some basic reminders of the rules.

    (All damage is non-lethal, you take a -4 to your attacks due to attempting to do non-lethal damage).

    Leila stands on the other side of the arena, the crowd cheers and the stadium is fairly packed. Out of the correct of your eyes you see signs made with illusion magic supporting your both.

    Leila readies her defensive pose.

    "Do your worst" She taunts you.

    You get to go first.

    "This is going to be a long fight. Leila is able to take a ton of damage, and she's slow to injure her opponents. It's what makes her such a good bodyguard, she can block off a doorway and no one can break through her...except for Aisha obviously."

    He gives you what looks like a cheap ale, but judging from the smell, "Strong" is the proper word to describe it.

    You are 60 feet apart. Her armor, and shield are magical in nature.

    She uses the total defense action and studies you in return, your turn.

    You pass your save.

    The bartender laughs. "Skullwhomper ale is the strongest stuff there is, it was invented by a dragon. So that should tell you about it's kick right there. It's free ale though, the dragon just gives the stuff away, apparently he invents stuff for fun."

    You shatter her sword. She looks at you shocked. "Well that's painful, but I don't need the sword to beat you!"

    She gets into a fighting defensive pose and attempts to punch you. Due to her using gauntlet she is considered armed so no AOO.

    Her Ac is 33. You need a natural 20 too.

    After this next round will we start to roll 3 rounds at a time.

    (1d20)[15]

    Her defensive style is slowly draining your energy.

    Make two fortitude saves, both DC 15.

    If you fail the first, you are fatigued until the end of the fight.

    If you fail the second you take 1d6 non-lethal damage.

    Edit: From now on her style no longer relies on you being hit.

    Every round the second fortitude save (to resist 1d6 damage) increases by one.

    Once you fail the fatigued roll, once 3 more rounds pass, start making a DC 15 rolls as exhaustion.

    To drain you she doesn't even need to hit you. Just start rolling saves and try to take her down before you collapse.

    Edit: no hits for the next 9 rounds.

    Remember

    Fort save DC 15 every round against fatigue until fails, 3 rounds after fails roll DC 15 for exhausted.

    Every round she attacks you roll a fortitude save versus 1d6 non-lethal damage, the save goes up by 1 every round.

    Seeing no possible way to defeat his enemy Zachary, angry, simply walks away, "No one shall earn a true victory today."

    I won't give her the satisfaction...

    "HEY!" Leila yells at you. "This isn't about you or me, it's about the princess!"

    She turns towards the noble box, and sighs. "I'm going to be in so much trouble..."

    You pass someone on the way out then she runs into the arena. It's a young woman who seems to be a monk. "Leila! I will face you!"

    The crowd looks shocked.

    The two of them then proceed to take over for the fight.

    You're met by your squire. "But...why sir?"

    "I had no chance of victory. And her vile sapping magics would have been my ruin. So I chose not to fight and did not lose."
