- The last date to post your introduction post is 72 hours from this post. Without an introduction post you cannot battle.
- Certain moves can't be used in the Pit because of the surroundings and other moves can affect more than one creature at the same time. After all introduction posts have been posted you will be informed whether those two apply to any of your creatures' moves.
- That you have 72 hours to post a response to a calculation post and/or roleplay post. The 72 hour deadline is not extended if your foe posts after a calculation post. Not meeting the deadline results in an automatic disqualification.
- That characters level once every 20 posts in the Fighting Pit, but pets gain levels and loyalty towards their owners normally.

How long had it been since Nerius had entered anything in a tournament? Um, a while, lets go with that, probably since sarane had still gone into season. What he did know was that he'd never entered a petite class tournament, hadn't ever watched one even. He was fairly sure one had been hosted before, but it might have been before he'd arrived at the Labs. Whatever the case, it meant he had absolutely no idea what to expect. It would be interesting, at the very least, even if things might end up going terribly.
Jumanji didn't have a lot of training, but she did have enthusiasm. If by 'enthusiasm' one meant 'lunged at anything that might be food', which was likely to be just about everything in the tournament. Which might present its own problems, but eh, if the Pit could handle two unbroken drakes going at each other, a vinesnatcher shouldn't be a problem. But there wasn't anything to lunge at yet, and the whiptail investigated the arena, while Nerius went up to the stands, and waited for their opponent to arrive.

Fiera had brought her best to the fighting pit today- in confidence, training, and fashion. It had taken her weeks to put it together, but she hoped it did that job, all sharp angles and deep colors. She peered at her opponent from over her tinted glasses as she approached the pit. She couldn't name the species, but he was pale in color with pointy ears and even pointier growths on his skin. She gave him a curt nod from her position before lifting up Madison's carrier. A quick flick of her fingers later and it swung open, releasing the candy corn bat into the arena. She fluttered down onto the arena floor, sniffing the air curiously.
Despite her confident airs however, Fiera had a death grip on the railing of the stands. She had never entered a tournament before, and had no clue what to expect. Still, she was determined to not seem weak. Her and Madison had been working for ages to train for this competition- she wasn't about to back down now.

As soon as the stands were settled ad the signal was given, the creatures on the arena floor flurried into movement. On some level, they knew what they were there for, and the roar of the audience likely didn't help in keeping them calm. Madison leapt forward at her opponent, only a little ungainly on her wings and feet. Despite its size and two legs, the whiptail vinesnatcher was faster than Fiera had anticipated, and she felt the fur on her tail prickle up nervously. One bite from that thing and it would all be over. "Madison, quick!" She called, and saw the bat's ears flick up as she ran. "Fly!" She shouted, and Madison skidded to a halt and began flapping her wings, rising into the air. With any luck, that would give her the edge she needed to stay out of the way of those deadly looking jaws and sharp looking teeth.
It wasn't long before their opponent showed up, a woman with animal like ears, and fine clothing, and he nodded in response. The pet wasn't designer, almost a surprise in a tournament, but a regular candycorn bat. Nerius had one himself, admittedly of the more designer variety, but hadn't spent much time with it, and tried to remember what he could. It was more graceful in the air than the ground, had sound related attacks, and... some sort of draining ability, but he couldn't remember the details.
Jumanji didn't care about the other handler, or the details of the bat's abilities, what caught her attention was that something edible had entered the area. She immediately fixated on the bat, and started moving toward the creature, eager even without being given a command.
But Nerius noticed something the whiptail didn't, that the bat was taking flight. It might end up out of range before the vinesnatcher could sink in her teeth, so he went for another option. "Jumanji, spit!" She seemed almost disappointed not to be able to bite, but obeyed, spitting a glob of acid at the bat.

Madison rose into the air steadily, soon flying far above Jumanji’s head. With any luck, she would be safe up there. Still, Fiera couldn’t help but tense as her opponent called out a command. She couldn’t hear it over the roar of the crowd, but the whip tail certainly did, crouching in anticipation. Fiera bit her lip as it leaned back, and then spat a bit glob of... something at her pet. It was gross, but Madison’s flight did the job- she was able to swoop effortlessly out of the way. Fiera breathed a sigh of relief. Now it was time to fire back. “Good job, Madison!” She called, sure that the bat could hear her over the din. “Now, use a wing buff!” Madison took a few moments to process and then obeyed, flapping her wings madly, stirring up the air into a cutting gale force.
The acid missed, hissing and sizzling into the sand, instead of the bat. Nerius couldn't tell if the whiptail had simply missed, or if the bat had had been trained to avoid the first strike, as many fighting pets were. In any case, Jumanji snarled as the flying critter evaded her attack, lashing her tail in frustration, rather than attack.
The bat was in the air now, which made things that much more difficult, and he wasn't sure if the vinesnatcher would be able to hit something that small and fast with a spit of acid. The training had focused more on doing it on command, than honing her aim. She was much more accurate with her jaws, if only the bat would get close enough. And it probably wouldn't need to, with sound attacks.
But after the other owner called out a command, Nerius couldn't hear what over the crowd, the flapping pattern changed. It was doing... something, probably an attack, but it didn't seem to be focusing on evading at the moment. That gave them an opportunity, if the whiptail could land a strike before the attack hit. "Crunch!" Jumanji was happy to follow that command, and lunged for the bat, mouth open.
--Madison uses Wing Buff! A d10 is rolled; 5 is rolled. 5 + (effective dex) 9 = 14 vs Jumanji's dex of 4 -The attack hits. Damage is equal to the user's dexterity flat; that is an (effective dex) 9. 9-3 (jumanji's resistance) = 6 -Jumanji takes 6 damage! Her stamina is now -3.
Jumanji tried; but is buffeted by a surprisingly strong buffet from Madison's earnest wingbeats. Jumanji is knocked down, and the pit crew immediately runs out onto the sands to get everyone healed.
Fieraferella receives 3 pit prize points and Madison receives 2 levels for winning. Nerius receives 1 pit prize point and Jumanji receives 1 level for losing.
