    Katlene Guest

    Citizens gathered in the room with Lucy in the barracks at Castle Britannia. After a short wait Captains Duffield and Cotume came through the Doors.

    Ellis Duffield: Hello Royal Guards and volunteers
    Undertaker: hail
    Katlene: So captains... to what do we owe this visit?
    Viktor Cotume: I am glad you asked, my lady, we have a special treat for you all this day.
    Katlene: ooh?
    Ellis Duffield: *Surveys the gathered crowd*
    Viktor Cotume: It seems an alchemist of some renown visiting our realm.
    Daniella: Damn those pot makers.
    Viktor Cotume: He has asked us to test all our followers to see who is skilled in his profession. There is a rumour he seeks an Apprentice.
    Ellis Duffield: *nods*
    noX: so... we need alchemy?
    Viktor Cotume: No, NoX.
    Viktor Cotume: All can take part.
    Ellis Duffield: Apprentices don't need to know much
    Fink: I'm a shoe-in
    Viktor Cotume: Now, shall we away? He has prepared a lab of sorts for our... trials.
    Ellis Duffield: *spies a few worthy apprentices in the crowd*
    Viktor Cotume: This way.

    Viktor motioned for us to follow him outside the barracks and then open a moongate to our destination.
    When everyone walked through they found themselves at the councillors hall in Serpent’s Hold.
    A large wall of sorts had been erected separating the room into halves.


    Viktor Cotume: All those who wish to enter, could you stand around the statues, please.

    [​IMG]

    Now, listen carefully as I will only say this once.
    We will select three people. You will be teleported into the area here.

    He pointed towards the area over the wall

    The three of your selected, will choose a station. Either, one, two or three.
    These will be a series of heats. We will pick the winner of the round, to advance to the next round.
    Very simple, if you are the fastest, you advance.
    Do we understand?
    Daniella: *nods*
    Viktor Cotume: When you are at your station, a book will be placed in your pouch.
    You will have 5 seconds to read it before we say 'go!' You will need to gather each ingredient listed in the book. These can be found in cases in this area.
    Once you have gathered all the ingredients, you need to EMOTE…
    *Grinds the potion*
    This will inform Ellis and I, that you have finished.
    Ellis Duffield: *nods*
    Viktor Cotume: We will wait for all three to finish, and then check your work.
    The person who was fastest and has the CORRECT ingredients in their pouch will advance to the next round
    Do we understand?
    Fink: I think so
    Daniella: *nods*
    Viktor Cotume: Let me see your emotes
    Dang: *Grinds the potion*
    Fink: *Grinds the potion*
    Daniella: *Grinds the potion*
    Deneya: *Grinds the potion*
    point and click: *grinds the potion*
    Viktor Cotume: *Grinds the potion*
    Chomper of Souls: *grinds the potion*
    Viktor Cotume: Excellent.
    Ellis Duffield: Good work people
    Viktor Cotume: Once you enter this area, stand behind a station
    If you run around and be silly, you will be removed. So try and contain yourselves.
    Any questions? Leave your mounts over there, please.
    Ellis Duffield: Straighten up guards, prepare yourself. This is serious work.
    Viktor Cotume: First three... Deneya, Chomper of Souls & Drokz
    Feel free to move to the border to watch while the rounds are taking place.
    Right… Are you three brave fellows ready?
    Deneya, Chomper of Souls & Drokz, replied in unison with a 'yes'
    Viktor Cotume: Remember; wait for my 'go' to begin.

    [​IMG]

    Open your books. They are in your pouches.
    Ready...
    And...
    GO!
    Deneya, Chomper of Souls & Drokz ran around the room looking in all the boxes for the ingredients listed in their books

    [​IMG]

    Chomper of Souls: *grinds the potion*
    Viktor Cotume: Chomper. We will check your work when the others are done.
    Remember to grind...Once the items are in place.
    Deneya: *Grinds the potion*
    Viktor Cotume: Deneya, second to finish.
    Drokz: i give up
    Viktor Cotume: And a forfeit.
    Ellis Duffield: Royal Guards don't just give up!
    Viktor looked through the items that Chomper of Souls and Deneya had collected,
    Viktor Cotume: You both have the right combination, Chomper was the fastest.
    Viktor Cotume: Chomper of Souls advances to round two.

    [​IMG]

    Daniella: *claps*
    Ellis Duffield: Well done
    Chomper of Souls: thank you

    [​IMG]

    Viktor Cotume: Right!
    Another three!
    Katlene Fink Daniella were selected for the next round.
    When I place the book in your pouch, you have five seconds to read it. Then gather your ingredients.
    Daniella: Ok.
    Viktor Cotume: Place them in your pouch BEFORE you grind. On my 'go!' you can proceed.
    Ellis Duffield: *nods*
    Viktor Cotume: Read your books.
    Ready...
    And...
    GO!
    The next three took off in search of the listed items

    [​IMG]

    Fink: *Grinds the potion*
    Viktor Cotume: Fink.
    Daniella: *Grinds the potion*
    Viktor Cotume: Daniella.
    Katlene: *Grinds the potion*
    Viktor Cotume: And Katlene.
    Viktor Cotume: We will check your work.
    Ellis Duffield: This looks quite close. Very speedy grinders!.

    [​IMG]

    Viktor Cotume: Aye. Fink was the fastest, Fink advances to round two
    Good work ladies!
    Katlene: Congrats Fink!
    Daniella: Congrats Fink.
    Ellis Duffield: Well done
    Viktor Cotume: Now let me see...Three more...
    Toilet scrubber, point and click & Andruin were next to try.
    Viktor Cotume: We will place a book in your pouch. You will have five seconds to read it.
    Ellis Duffield: It's not a lot to read
    Viktor Cotume: Then when we say 'Go' you can proceed and gather the needed ingredients. When you have gathered the ingredients listed in the book, place them in the pouch then grind.
    Wait for my Go…
    Go!
    Same thing again, the three ran around and collected the ingredients listed in their potion recipe.

    [​IMG]

    Viktor Cotume: Point and click.
    Toilet scrubber
    Andruin
    Point and click was the winner of this round.
    If you haven't had a turn wait over here please
    Has everyone had a turn that wishes to? No second chances for people who fool around.
    Katlene, Deneya?
    Katlene: love to
    Deneya: alright
    Viktor Cotume: Very well. Because we have returning players, we will make it a different potion.
    Are we ready?
    Deneya: yes
    Peter: yes
    Ellis Duffield: *nods*
    Viktor Cotume: Open your books!
    And...
    GO!

    [​IMG]

    Katlene: *Grinds the potion*
    Deneya: *Grinds the potion*
    Viktor Cotume: Katlene!
    Peter: *grinds the potion*
    Viktor Cotume: Deneya!
    And Peter. We will check your work
    Incorrect, Peter.
    Ellis?
    Ellis Duffield: Correct ingredients here
    Viktor Cotume: I believe Katlene was quickest with her grinding.
    Katlene advances.
    Well done, Deneya and Peter.
    Katlene: *smiles*
    Peter: thank you
    Ellis Duffield: Good work

    [​IMG]

    Viktor Cotume: This will be the last round to see who advances.
    Toilet Scrubber Andruin & Daniella were the next three to try.
    Daniella was first to return to her station, grind and have the correct items.

    Viktor Cotume: Daniella is correct. You may remain there.
    This is the second round of play! The potions become trickier!
    Daniella, Katlene and Fink. Try your hardest. Open your books!
    And.... Go!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Daniella: *Grinds the potion*

    Viktor Cotume: Daniella!
    Fink: *Grinds the potion*
    Viktor Cotume: Fink!
    Katlene: *Grinds the potion*
    Viktor Cotume: Katlene!
    Daniella advances! Her work is correct!
    Fink: *clap*
    Viktor Cotume: You are eliminated, sorry Fink and Katlene
    Good work making it this far.

    [​IMG]

    Next round. We have an odd number, so it will just be you two.
    Chomper of Souls and Lady point and click
    Are we ready?
    Chomper of Souls: yes
    point and click: yes
    Viktor Cotume: Something nice and tricky for you both...

    [​IMG]

    Let me see... Jhelom's Curing Remedy!
    Open your books.
    Ready...
    And...
    GO!
    Wait till you see what you have to make next, Daniella. *Rubs his hands together*
    Just as the wicked grin faded from Captain Cotume’s face, someone threw a conflagration potion into the area that Chomper of souls was working, impairing all vision of his table...
    Chomper of Souls: what?
    Deneya: that is not fair
    point and click: *grinds the potion*
    Viktor Cotume: Stop!
    I'm sorry. We'll have to try that again. That was clearly unfair.
    Just a moment…
    a moment passes
    We have made a decision.
    Both of you will advance to the final round. And I would advise against your friend throwing a potion.
    Remain where you are.
    Daniella was brought into the area
    This is the final round, try and be civil. Let us have a nice, fair heat.
    No potions.
    The winner of this heat... Let us talk of your prize. The alchemist has sponsored an article to be placed in the Reward Hall in Malas, With your name and full honours on it.
    I'm sure you all know the drill by now. This potion though... very tricky.
    Open your books
    On my signal...
    Go!
    Chomper of Souls: *grinds the potion*
    point and click: *grinds the potion*
    Viktor Cotume: Chomper!
    Daniella: *Grinds the potion*
    Viktor Cotume: point and click
    Daniella!
    We will check your work… Chomper, missed an item.
    Well, Daniella has the correct ingredients... but was not the fastest.
    That means point and click is the winner!

    [​IMG]

    Ellis Duffield: Well done
    Viktor Cotume: Very good work, point and click!
    Ellis Duffield: A true alchemist in the making
    Viktor Cotume: We will be adding an item in your honour to the Reward Hall very soon.
    Good try Chomper and Danie!
    Viktor Cotume: Perhaps we may run this again at some stage.
    Viktor Cotume: If we have enough interest
    Ellis Duffield: The alchemist might need more than one apprentice
    Viktor Cotume: Thank you all for coming today.
