At the conclusion of the team combat rounds, the Silver, White and Green teams
were ahead by a point for having emerged victorious from this round. This led
to the single combat rounds. Each person was paired with another of similar
skill and level and were given a short period of time in which to dispatch their
enemy. However, there was a twist to this single combat. Because two fights ran
simultaneously, if one victor from a fight was able to kill their primary target,
they were given the opportunity to jump into the fray of the other fight and
destroy them as well.
The Thief Uwoiame was the only competitor to benefit from this and was able to
defeat Simaril after they had both eliminated their primary targets. Many notable
fighters emerged from this phase. Uwoiame, Dunccan, Simaril, India and Joely all
had maximum points for the competition. This ended single combat and moved into
the sands-like quest in which control of the divine scales was fought over.
Three groups were formed into an alliance, and the two large groups battled for
control of the scales.
Zenichiro of the Red team held the scales from the beginning and repelled all
attacks from the Blue, Black and Green teams. Just when the sands ran out,
however, Caelred the Thief pilfered the scales from her allied team and at the
end of the time, was in control of them, giving the Silver team a bonus point
over the others in the alliance. This would prove a key turning point for Dunccan
in the end.
The end of the scales quest would begin the final, free-for-all battle inside the
chaotic arena. Each competitor for themselves, no-one was safe. The carnage that
would ensue was something to behold. Blood indeed spilled onto the dirty floor
of the Arena. Screams of pain and triumph could be heard across the land. When
the smoke cleared, five competitors stood above the rest. The most efficient
killer in the Arena was Zenichiro, with 18 kills and no deaths. He was followed
by Sajora, who had 11 kills and 0 deaths. Next was Dunccan with 21 kills and 3
deaths. Closely behind was Kodiak with 10 kills and 4 deaths and bringing up the
bottom was Aryanna with 3 kills and 1 death.
