    January's Battle Chicken Lizard Tournament while sparsely attended proved to be interesting non the less. There were only two competitors this time, Lady Alice Wonderland, and the champ, Hunter S Tompson.

    It was decided that since there were no other challenges to his reign as Overlord of Battle Chickendom, that their match would be a best of three. The first fight was a remarkable one, with Lady Alice's chicken, a Um from Umbridge barely edging out Hunter's, The Great Melinko.

    The second round was a surprising repeat of the first round! Everyone in attendance expected the match to go at least the full threee rounds. It appears that the Great Melinko has finally met his match in the lime green body of a Um from Umbridge.

    A new twist however was introduced this month. The champion of the month will decide what type of pets will be fighting in the following month. This month's champion Alice, made the suggestion that we fight Leather Wolves, with a backup suggestion of Sheep! Confirmation of which will be the selected animal will be provided as soon as its available.

    After the tournament was over and the prize was awarded, we played a new game of Rat Wrangling. Everyone piled into the arena and on the word GO! attempted to tame as many rats as they could.

    The Champion Rat Wrangler for this month was Keeper of Dragons, who should take the name Keeper of Rats now as he managed to tame five (5) rats in the final round!

    Helios should be clear about the rules at these events. He never said we couldn't kill someone to keep them from taming additional rats.

    Heheh. True but He gave rules that established what we could not do. Canon of construction, if he can establish what we can't due, then we can assume anything else is what we can do.

    Test Update! Leather wolves will not bond, so we will be using the alternate choice of Sheep for this month's competition. Grab those beasts and get em ready with an official post to come but we'll be running the sheep fight on Feb. 27th at 9pm EST.
