    It's free, the blonde girl has only a few morsols left. There's a large amount on other people's plates. Apparently this girl is a very popular cook.

    Bard sing about the history of the country, and there is a large amount of dancing.

    Zachary send through the link, When is my fight?

    Zachary bids the only people he knows away as he moves over to his squire, complementing him if he won, giving him constructive criticism if he did not.

    "You are proving to be quite a warrior. What is your assessment of my upcoming fight?"

    The squire turns to you. "Um..well...Lady Leila uses the same technique the girl I was fighting uses. Tired defences. You'll have to try to take her down ASAP, or she'll slowly grind your energy away until you just collapse. There's really two ways to do it, focus on hitting as hard as you can, or rely on hitting her consistently, and hope she collapses before you do. The fact that their technique is way more dangerous when fighting non-lethal doesn't help."

    He seems out of breath and tired. The girl clearly drained him.

    As he wanders through the press of festivalgoers, Danil catches sight of a stall giving out sausage rolls. He slips over.

    Look like mine. Smell like mine. (Grabs one and bites into it) And... taste like mine.

    He grabs a half-dozen sausage rolls, leaving a couple of gold pieces in their place and disappearing into the crowds before the stallkeeper can protest.

    With one task accomplished for a while, he turns his attention to the search for knowledge. He edges over to the nearest bard and listens intently, hoping that even half a story can prove helpful.

She takes a quick breath and starts reading off her mental image of the symbols she traced earlier. And just like she hoped her hand reaches for her spell pouch out of instinct, she grasps a fine shiny dust and puts it to her lips. Held mouth high she chants a soothing tune into the dust then slowly breaths it away. As the dust starts to drift away it forms archaic symbols and jets towards the banner, stamping it briefly with symbols before bursting into a fine shiny dust.

    She moves to the other banner repeating the process.

    You notice three nearby girls going over what look like a map of the country, except it's marked very different. "So if we move here...." one goes.

    "That's Vyce's area." The other goes. "I don't think that would go over well."

    "Yeah but we have HER backing, we can use that to our advantage."

    "Don't you find it weird, how this young adult is crushing everyone?" The other says, "I think he might be cheating."

    "You can't cheat in the great game, the very game itself keeps the rules fair via the magical contract."

    "That's not what I mean! It's like he has access to knowledge he shouldn't!"

    "Yeah, but he's a bloody dragon, they kinda you know, can do that stuff."

    "So we meet back with the master and then do our next move. We attack Vyce's area."

    "Right!" the three of them pick up the map and run off.

    She rubs her head a little then starts running after him. "Wait for me!", cashing after him while yelling along the way. No clue where he was headed, or how to get there.

    I'm pretty sure none of our group wished to be a dragon. Do you think we might have found Mori?

    You follow him to the vendor area, where the food is being handed out, the blonde girl has left and returned with more chocolates and such. Apparently most of the people have had their fill, but now she's joined by a boy with short brown hair, and they're carefully looking over the crowd whispering to each other.

    Affording her master some attention in the form of a glance every once in a while she moved away from the stand looking for someone not overly busy. Finally spotting a shorter man, a dwarf perhaps she taps on his shoulder. "Excuse me, sorry to interrupt but I'm new in town. I was looking for some information or a place were I can get some."

    The boy turns to you. "Ask Patricia, she knows everything." He points to the blonde girl at the vendor. "No one knows how she does it. She'll talk in terms no one understands though."

    Her eyes widen at the question, "..I wasn't expecting that. Is this place like Order of the Stick?" She scratches her head with one finger, "Give me a bit. It's been a while since I've seen the scythe stats." After some thought, "This one is easy scythes are great for coup de graces, they are normally a plain times four crit. But since it's keen it's nineteen to twenty times four. Unless! they have some type of special class ability, if the soldier was a level twenty she fighter could have a times five. She mumbles to herself, "ya I think that's right." then speaks up towards Patricia. "Is that right?"

    Patricia breathes. "Thank god, I wasn't the only one zapped here. Although it seems you got to keep your body. It's me....the guy who cast the spell...you know..."

    Lee waves to you. "Hi, care for some chocolate?"

    When is Zachary's fight? Lucas asks Loiosh and relays the answer to Zachary.

    After that he focuses back on the cook.

    As Danil meanders closer to those girls, he spots a familiar face.

    Guys, I think I found another of us!

    "Around supper time." The psycrystal says. "Final fight of the tournament."

    The trays have been given their goods all over again. There is plenty left.

    "All except the Crescent Dragon. She's too violent to be allowed to fight, she never holds back. It's always aim to kill with her."

    "I heard that." A voice comes from behind you. You turn and see a messy woman in a chain shirt and various magical items sitting there. Mana turns white.

    "Um..hi?" she says scared.

    "Calm down. I have better things to do than murder a civilian." She looks over Mana, who is now gripping your arm rather tight. "It's just the way I fight. It just feels like I'm holding back if I fight tourney style..."

    She grips her polearm weapon (blade-on-a-stick, I don't know the name of it, not a spear...it's got more a curved blade, oriental style).

    "I look forward to seeing the match as well." She turns to the tournament as the squires start to enter the field to prepare for the pre-game matches. The arena is still fairly empty.
