Challenge for MoonBeryl *

Post by Rakeesh » Tue Feb 19, 2013 12:04 pm

Koy,

It has been several years since I've had the pleasure of facing you in the Outback. I challenge you for MoonBeryl. May it be as good of a brawl as ours have been in the past.

Sincerely,
Rakeesh Sah Tarna

Rakeesh,

Still wondering what's damning? Words. Actions. Yours. Again.

Until you begin to truly act in a manner that's cohesive with your claims and your supposed worry over children and dream-thieving mages, it's difficult to take you seriously. If you're truly concerned about the citizens of this city and believe Myr'Khul cultists are running rampant, you ought to be spending less time in the rings and more time waging war against these enemies of the people.

You write over in the Arena that you're stretched to the limit, under a great deat of stress, ready to break. And yet you dally in challenges, seek glory within the rings, openly covet the added stresses of title and rank. You obtained a Barony, then the Overlord's Mantle and now you seek an Opal. Incredibly, you're now seeking to not only re-launch but captain a revitalized Champions of Mythos team. Are you truly ready to break? Truly at your limit? It doesn't seem likely.

Words. Actions. Yours. Pretty damning.

I received your letter. You ask for my help - I will give it here and now. Focus your attentions on the Myr'Khul, on proving the damages you claim they're causing. Stop seeking selfish accolades; stop spending time in the rings and spend it with those you claim need your help, our help. Duel less, follow your alleged convictions more.

A duel with Koyliak - the "pleasure of facing [her]" as you write it - is something easily obtained without a challenge. If you want MoonBeryl, have the decency and respect for her and for this sport to just come out and say it. Stop trying to hide behind ineffective and thinly veiled words - we all see right through them.

Still wondering what's damning, Rakeesh?

Words.

Actions.

Yours.

I'm not incredibly familiar with the Outback's challenge system. I know there's a grace period, though. Does it apply as well to when someone has just won it, and if so has Koy waived that. If not, and if Koy has waived the option, then this can be disregarded. I'm just personally curious on it.

Rakeesh,

I believe both Matt and G raise valid points.

If you simply would like a friendly duel, I am happy to oblige at the Outback one night. If you would like MoonBeryl, I do not waive my grace period and I believe it is still in effect (if I am wrong someone please correct me). Unless this challenge is valid, I do not accept it.

I have tried to refrain from dipping my toes too deeply in the destructive whirlpools you seem to create everywhere you go these days but you are making it more and more difficult to do so.

I'm not sure what is worse: the disrespect your actions continue to show for the variety of citizens and institutions in this city or that you continue to mask it under the delusion that you are epitomizing all that is good and proper.

If you want MoonBeryl, say so and say so when it is valid.

This challenge is valid as the grace period for a newly won opal is seven days.

Thank you, Kheld.

Rakeesh,

I stand corrected on the grace period. But I hold to everything else said, including Matt's point about your priorities.

So which is it you want, a good fight or the specific desire for an Opal? I will meet you in the rings for either one.

Koyliak,

Rakeesh Sah Tarna has reached out to various groups within the city capable of aiding him in his venture to clean up the mess in Old Temple, both caused by his publicly irresponsible actions and by the alleged presence of Myr'Khul insurgents in the district. Matthew Simon has been invited to attend this meeting and offer his advice, as Rakeesh is ready to listen and lend his sword behind a publicly supported plan of action.

He acknowledges the necessity for him to separate his personal agendas from his profession, which is - first and foremost - that of a duelist. He is eager to face you in the ring for the right to hold MoonBeryl, and speaks much to his appreciation of your ability. He has chosen to challenge you out of that great respect for your prowess.

For all other inquiries beyond the rings, he is happy to to address them privately or in person.

For all debts that come from the ways of sword, fists, or wizardry, Rakeesh will pay those debts in the only way that matters - in the rings and with blood.

I really try not to be negative, but this is becoming too eye-roll worthy. It's nice to know that our new Overlord can't speak for himself anymore.

This right here is why every respectable team has a Seirichi or a Maria Graziano.

Mine future body, AKA Koyliak,

I have sacrificed 7 babygoats to the Blood God X'guth so that you may be victorious in your challenge.

Your body, as it will one day become mine own, cannot be damaged!
