The crowd was going wild, the combination of bloodshed, strength and skill at arms gave the crowd a much needed outlet for its built up tensions. A fact that the Brawler's Guild had been quick to use to their advantage, allowing bets to be placed on the fights with odds never favoring the champions who fought. The tiny Goblin smiled as she stared out at the crowds, her free hand upheld to them trying to quiet them as she tried to announce the series of fights that were about to take place.
"TODAY LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WE HAVE FOR YOUR VIEWING PLEASURE AN ARRAY OF BATTLE-HARDENED BRAWLERS FROM EVERY CORNER OF THE WORLD! HERE TO TEST THEIR METTLE AGAINST THE MEANEST, AND BADDEST WE HAVE TO OFFER! FOR NOW ENJOY FINE DRINK AND FOOD AND START PLACING THOSE BETS!" A short peal of laughter filled the air as she lowered the microphone and turned on her jetpack, flying into the air and around the hundred meter arena several times before landing in her appointed spot above the fray.
"So hun, how much ya think we are gonna make of these chums today?" Pixie Coinwrench asked, her employer and lover Galleon Goldscrew who was puffing on a cigar behind her. A short chuckle escaped the other Goblin and he rubbed his greasy little hands together, "Oh we are gonna make a killin' today babe! These bums don't even know what's gonna hit 'em! Hah! I can already smell all the gold we are gonna get outta these guys! Can't believe they are lettin' us use Gurubashi Arena though, man this is gonna make a killin' for the Guild!" His voice was as slippery as his words, the glint in his eyes showed that he was here for the money and just that.
It was probably this reason that the Guild hired him to do its event; but Goldscrew didn't care, he just wanted some quick cash. "Let's see that roster shall we? I wanna know what kind of brawlers we are dealin' with today babe." He said as he pulled out a clipboard with a large stack of papers on it.
The top piece of parchment showed a list of names the first ten highlighted:
2) Alabron Stargaze
3) Moloch Von Zinzer
4) Kalipsia Darkfang
5) Xian Li Honningbrew
6) Donothil and Deliane Sunblade
7) Li-xue Inkpaw
8) Aliyara Stagsong
9) Edlothia Foxburr
10) Allaynna (Allay) Kidrain
"Ladies and gentlemen! The time has come for our first fight! A Rank 1 Brawler, Ashok Longshadow! Let's take it easy on him since its his first time here with us!" She said, the crowding roaring with laughter at the human's rank and the fact that the Guild wanted to go easy on him. "Let's see who we have fighting him... A gnoll by the name of Hogger!" Pixie finished with a loud laugh, landing back on the platform as Ashok was teleported into the arena along with his opponent.
