First Arkanis Gauntlet in Mos Eisley

February 3, 2013

Galactic News attended at the Mos Eisley Turnament

The Arena

The Clan Besadii presented the first edition of the Arkanis Gauntlet in the arena of Mos Eisley, Tatooine. Lord Braktah presided the event with his court. A large audience made of locals and outsiders sat on the bleachers to watch the show. The first combats were quick, but they became more and more animated when the most expert combatants remained.

The Finale

The tournament culminated with a final duel, opposing two force users in a lightsaber melee combat. The crowd bet on their champions while  eyes riveted on the floor. The power of the lightsabers even damaged the walls. At the end, one of the duellist, maybe a Jedi, gave up because of his wounds but he promised to come back. The champion, Darth Hellius, was rewarded by the Hutt with a price symbolizing his victory and the friendship of the Clan Besadii.

    I would like to point out that I was not a participant in the Hutt’s ridiculous game. I entered the arena following an altercation between the event’s victor, and a member of the crowd. I was then attacked by this Hellius person and forced to defend myself. I’m sure it appeared part of the competition, but I was not, in fact, a willing participant.
