DEFT Round 1: Match 01- Blood and StoneA large crowd steadily pours into a very large dojo. Two men are handing out pamphlets on the upcoming fights in the first round. A large hanging banner displays the names of the first two contestants competing. “Shale Vs Gohma? I swear 99% of these competitors are foreign—" "—what their aren’t even 100 fighters you idiot." “But you get what I’m saying right? It’s King and our small Island against the world! Kind of exciting isn’t it?" The other man reaches into a large pack on his side. “I guess, man does it work up my appetite though..huh what where’s my roll." He rummages around inside the bag and then begins flailing it around. “Damn, thieving tourists!! Where’s my bread? which one of you slimy.." The man continues ranting about and through a screen door several fighters can be seen training. A few from the group, though, are resting on a bench conversing. The smaller one pulls out a roll of bread and starts to
DEFT IntroductionSunlight glares above, bathing a light bed of sand and eager waves. A wall of fauna greets the sun a safe distance from the tide's reach. Suddenly, a large wave sends onto the shore. A writhing mass emerges from the waves appearing to move. It hulks up propping itself on a mass of limbs. It peers to the sky and then the treeline. A cloud of sediment kicks up and the being disappears without a trace.
A mile or so away a group of fisherman and some children are reeling in a catch "That's my boy! Look of those muscles, reelin' her in like a champ!" "Uh, actually pa' this loads really light.." The child replies with an unnerving grin. The father snatches the line from his son and rallies the cage upward. It surfaces and just about leaps out of the water with momentum. A small glowing nymph is all that resides inside. "Not another bug!" He throws the small insect over his shoulder. The son catches it and just stares, the bug looks back at him. His stomach growls and the bug tries to skitter
Little Miss It“Do you enjoy her company?”
That, Avadaci concluded, had been the extent of his grandfather’s kindness. Thank the stars he had broken his neck after a failed attempt to ascend the castle staircase. Not that many were privy to this information. The official listing on the cause of death involved something along the lines of falling in battle after slaying at least a dozen demons, although this was treated with quite a bit of skepticism by the general populace. Yet, interestingly enough, a decent portion of the locals believed a tale about the cannibals of Unkhtom devouring him whole.
Not that Avadaci really cared how his grandfather had died. He was just glad he was dead. And if he was glad his grandfather had died, Avadaci wondered, why did he have to attend his funeral? In fact, the whole kingdom was glad his grandfather had died. Why did they have to attend the funeral?
“Oh Avad,” proclaimed his mother, “obv

He was fourteen and she was probably aged about the same, give or take a few years. It had been an hour since he'd met her.
He hated her already.
She scowled behind him and likely shared the sentiment as they scampered up the hillside in a desperate attempt to escape the roaring mob that seemed to be growing perpetually larger and coming ever-closer. Gabriel would have liked to say that it was all her fault he was in this situation, though it was his careless nicking ofwhat was it? A chicken that started the first old woman running, but how was he supposed to know that she'd stumble and fall and everyone else would think he'd assaulted her?
He hadn't. He'd taken the chicken, snapped its neck and run, because he hadn't eaten meat in weeks and he was starting to feel the affects on his already weak limbs.
This is what happens, he thought. This is what happens when you live like th
