In Menossea, the Fibelely Dibeley’s, and two other groups take part in the first challenge of the strength portion of the three-day tournament, which involves capturing a large boar. The party manages to capture the boar after Arielle ties the boar to Ghesh, after Ghesh picked it up, with the vines created by Baldric. The party then rests as the four remaining parties begin the second challenge, which is to break stone slabs. A short time later, the third challenge begins, in which the four remaining parties: The Fibeley Dibeley’s, Murks Crew and two other unnamed parties are to toss four large stones from one side of the field to the other.Before the challenge, a human, who is eventually revealed to be a man named ‘Merk’, rudely conflicts with the party. The party struggles at first to get the stones across the field, but eventually gain a rhythm and take first place, with Merk’s Crew following afterwards, and the other two parties failing two move on with several broken bones. The final challenge is an arena brawl which the two parties must compete in hand-to-hand combat. Ghesh easily wins his round, followed by Jonah who struggles a bit but eventually wins as well. Baldric is third who is to challenge Merk, which proposes a bet and bets a large blue gem. The party refuses the bet, and Baldric and Merk begin their round, but immediately ends as Merk attempts to cheat his way to winning by attacking Baldric with a small purple gem. Merk’s crew is disqualified, and Merk is punished and arrested, while the guards take Baldric and the party to a nearby building for treatment.v There an older woman says that Baldric was poisoned by something known as “perverse tap”, but is cured with a liquid medicine that causes Baldric to hallucinate, mostly about fish. After Baldric wakes up, the party gain their prize reward of 100 gold and make their way to to the ‘Hopping Goblin’ in the western side of the lower district. The party rests in the grand room, and await the next day of the tournament.
