In a very competitive and well-fought quest, Kodiak came out on top
to win the Onyx. It began with a flagquest of 4 teams out of which 2
advanced, Hekate's (with Kodiak) and Alcarindel's. In the second
flagquest round Hekate's team won again in a very quick and dominating
victory despite the best efforts of Orinoko.
The final round was an immortal combat fought in the arena between the
members of Hekate's team: Hekate herself, Kodiak, Zakath, Aveline, and
Skyler. Skyler was looking good initially, slaying Aveline and Hekate
before falling to Kodiak. Kodiak looked in a poor position against Zakath
but managed to pull it off to secure the gem and his status as a contender
for the next ordination.
I was especially encouraged by the quality of play I saw from some of the
younger players during the flagquests, with Aveline, Skyler, Curimeo, and
Tazius all performing well. Those currently at the top of Avalon's food
chain would do well to keep an eye on these up-and-comers.
