Tourney: Rd 1: Jarian Saskir v Domina Seltaphar
"Welcome to the Tournament!"

For the first round of the Tournament all of the fights would take place in The Circle, an open-air arena without walls.  Combatants are warned that the copper band which marks the edge of the arena also marks the location of a magical barrier which prevents exiting the arena during the match (and keeps out anything being thrown or shot from the stands).  The barrier rises 50 feet before arcing to create a dome over the arena approximately 75 feet above the ground.  Amphitheater seating allows the crowds to watch the action.  A pair of massive poles (10 feet wide) are placed across the arena from each other, connected by a long rope festooned with flags and advertisements.  The afternoon sun casts a shadow from the western pole across the center of the arena, but otherwise the arena is bathed in sunlight.

OOC:
Standard fight rules
3 prep rounds

In your posts, please include a private section to the GM, which lists your current stats (AC, hp, non-permanent bonuses to anything, spells or powers in effect, immunities, etc.).  This section can also include any pre-fight actions taken.  Once the pre-fight stuff is posted, I will roll to see if anything is dispelled upon entering the arena.  After that, you can each post your preps and roll for initiative.

A copy of the map is provided below.

In reply to Wanderer (msg # 1):

Jarian strides into the arena, his colossal form stretching almost as high as the 50' barriers. Giving a roar he stretches his dusky leather wings and they reach almost side to side. Looking down to his opponent, he appears confident and calm, giving her a slight bow before folding his hands together in a meditative posture. "I await the challenge of you, small one," he calls to her across the arena, respect evident for anyone who could find their way to this arena.

OOC: Starting in L1:P5 (Colossal size, or will be in Prep rds)

OOC: Jarian, see private line for results of Epic Dispel upon entering the arena.

Please go ahead and post actions during the 3 prep rounds.  You are not allowed to leave the starting area, and spells/effects cannot have any effect on the rest of the arena (so, no walls of stone out in the middle of the arena).  Area spells with an ongoing effect (such as a Fog Cloud spell) can be cast if centered in the starting area, but the effect is constrained to the starting area until the fight begins (at which time, if still in effect, it will spread to its full area of effect.

Tourney: Rd 1: Jarian Saskir v Domina Seltaphar
Stepping through the doors at the far end of the arena, Domina Seltaphar glances around the arena, taking in the large crowd that fills the stands.  She takes a sip from the blue crystal glass she holds in one hand as she looks across, and up, at her opponent.  She wears a tight blue top today, to the delight of a good portion of the audience, with a flowing blue skirt which nearly reaches her knees.  Her daggers and whips are attached to the thick black leather belt she wears, from which also hangs three small leather pouches.

As Jarian calls out his greeting she raises her glass in salute, though she refrains from calling a greeting across the arena.  As the seconds before the fight begins slip away, she finishes her drink and holds the glass out to her side.  When she releases the glass, it simply hangs in the air next to her, as if waiting for her to retrieve it.  Finally, just before the signal is given, she calls upon her magic, casting Time Stop twice in rapid succession.  Whatever magics she enacts within the time stops, they seem to have no visible effect.

OOC: Domina cast two Time Stops during the prep rounds, and took actions within them (not visible to everyone else).  If you have an effect which lets you determine what spells/effects she has active, just let me know.

True seeing reveals that her wings, normally appearing as white feathery wings, are actually bat wings (though whether that is their normal form, or the effect of some spell, is unclear).

Domina won initiative, so I will post her first round actions a little later.

As the signal is given, there is a burst of smoke which momentarily obscures Domina.  Those in the audience who are distracted by the smoke miss the action as Domina teleports across the arena to appear in the air in front of her opponent.  Her wings hold her aloft as she smiles at the giant.

"I hope to provide quite the challenge.  I'd wish you luck, but, you know.  Here's a gift instead."

Domina's hand rushes forward as she throws what looks like an acorn at Jarian's massive chest.  Even before the small missile lands, she flies backward and quickly reaches the center of the arena.  With a word of power she disappears, hidden within the sphere of shimmering multi-colored light that springs up in response to her will.

OOC: Domina's actions for the round.

Swift: Cast quickened Greater Teleport
Standard: Throw Fire Seed acorn (Hits Touch AC 272, and deals 1,131 unholy damage and 1,131 fire damage, with no save. The fire damage is reduced by half if you have immunity to fire).
Move: Fly to center of arena, tumbling to avoid AOOs
Swift: Cast quickened Prismatic Sphere

OOC: I am going to have to put a 2 day countdown on this fight.  I have asked Jarian for an update in the OOC thread, and via PMs, with no response.  I don't need actions posted within the 2 days necessarily, but I need at least a response, of this fight will be called.
