    EMs Helios and Ikaris hosted Sheep Battle at the Felucca Arena tonite! A few people came prepared and brought along the pride of their flocks but many, sad to say, were just lambs to the slaughter..... tamed on the spot and sent to the ring to meet their fates.

    It's a little known fact that the sheep of Sosaria have amazing healing abilities. With most of them starting their wrestling careers with just 12 - 14 hit points I suppose healing is a good thing for them to have mastered, but it made for a very long fight. Realizing this, EM Helios declared that the sheep with the most life left in him at the end of three minutes would be declared winner of that round. Below an example of two untrained sheep nearing the end of their fight.


    There were eight contestants total (and a greater number of sheep!) and after double elimination rounds the final fight was fought by Sam (aka Weezer) and Kaika, both handling finely trained sheep, with Sam's pet Jib Jab winning the title!


    Sam was awarded a shiney new pair of sheep shearing scissors and a plaque in the Reward Hall in Malas!


    Immediately following the Sheep Battle we were ushered out to the east end of the dungeon and there told "Tame the rats!" and the Rat Wranglin' commenced! Three people managed to tame five of them and they were sent back to the cave where a limited number of rats were now held. Sis Draper emerged victorious with five rats in tow and was given the Pied Pipers Lute as reward.

    Thank you, EM Helios and EM Ikaris! :thumbup1:
