    Empire of Tokuno Tourney gives three hours of action!


    <BLOCKQUOTE>The Blue Lotus Tournament Arena in Zento was the location of the Tourney. Though a Cherry Blossom Queen and King were crowned at the fashion contest the Tourney was the crowning jewel of the event and it lasted over three hours!

    I arrived during the match between Malag aste and Lord Urich and a great match it was.

    Lord Urich won this match and I was glad I took my seat on the upper level. Not only did one get a great view looking down but one also avoided getting any blood splattered on ones dress. I was wearing a new creation by Lady Mona Barrington and did not want to soil it.
    For most of this event Lady FiFi LaForge of FCB sat to my left and Melian of MOA to my right.....one could not ask for any better company.

    As I looked around I noticed the benches in the plot had been crafted by Homeless Boy and lanterns by Crafty Crystal. The decor only took second place to the patrons, many dressed to the nines as the three are below.

    During this extremely long event many people came and went and others stayed the entire time. A few of those that visited and worked this event were, Grimm, Dark Drow, Aldrick, Tiber, Lord Cassius, Emily Evans, Micarlin Z'ress, Ariyana Sune, Timmigy, Max VonBayer, Abracadabra, Issek, Turkish, Oona, Alex Winters, Leviathan, Duncan Dunbar, Vendetta, Peter Cottontail, Lady Mist, Hanzo, vet, Trinity, Wicked Jester, Finder Of Beasts, Sammy, Key Suspect,Damon, Garrett, Katharina, Locke and Thalon Van****.

    Bishimi did a fantastic job at introducing the warriors and entertaining the crowd. Late in the evening for some reason he also died but I am not sure how or why. He made a lovely blue corpse.

    On the subject of fantastic jobs, Lord Anvil gave away an amazing amount of prizes for the UO history trivia that was peppered through out the entire event.

    During these player run events often some of the most entertaining aspects is what the audience says and does. Temujin, a player seen often at MOA auctions and man about town, stated he thought Luna needed a food court. Luna has everything but a food court he stated. In real life Temujin claims he could spend an entire day in and around a food court. I love this idea of a food court in Luna.... only if we truly needed to eat.... and I wished our characters did.

    Melian also informed me this wednesday at MOA all the items going on the auction block have been submitted by one person. The owner of the SC Malls in Luna has done some house cleaning and MOA will be showcasing it. An interesting concept.

    During all this chatter the fights went on. On the topic of chatter a bird flew in my ear by the name of Spark, Spark of !BS! that is. He informed me there would be bloodshed outside the arena and he was correct. "Just keep ur eyes on the WTF people", he told me. Sure enough as time passed Spark could be seen outside on his purple horse in the middle of drama which ended with death on the streets of Zento!

    One of my favorite fights was the match between Key Suspect and Akela.....it was in the ring with Akela as winner.

    As the event wound down there were three warriors left and the call was for a Battle Royale between them.

    It was down to Akela and Polynikes. These two train together often and know each others strengths and weakness. It was long battle with Akela coming out as the big winner of the night!

    Awards were handed out and congratulations to all that entered.
