A refreshing breeze drifted through the mysterious village carved into the side of a looming mountain. It was a perfect day and this was reflected by the strangely busy nature of such an inhospitable village. The explanation behind the tense and crowded atmosphere was simple; it was the Blackthorn Battle Carnival. This tournament was a relatively unknown tradition within Blackthorn, which featured elite trainers champing at the bit to prove their power. The observers reclined on rocky ledges above a crude and sandy arena. The aura of excitement was palpable as the trainers limbered up. That's the basic story: eight trainers competing to have their power evaluated by Blackthorn's renowned elders. If anyone's interested please let me know via this thread. I'm looking for up to seven other people. Normal PRP rules apply.
