No monster-fighting tournament is more barbaric and senseless than the annual Green Blood on a Black Rock. You play a dastardly free captain ready to bet your hull full of captured goods that your enslaved beastie can shred all comers. Come to this event with a cool pirate name and shrewdly draft from a list of available critters. Then, play your monsters in a bracketed, one-on-one, anything goes deathmatch. Bring your luckiest dice, because there will be a lot of green blood on everybody's favorite black rock. The captain whose monster survives to the end gets the honor of having one of the most famous monsters in the Sodden Lands—the monster to win Green Blood on a Black Rock 4716 AR!
Speakin' as a veteran of that treacherous rock...keep a sharp eye out for them 'clockworks'. Those scum be vicious. I worked hard to restrain a gods-damned FLAME DRAKE, and what does the ungrateful machine do? Down it in one hit.
Oh, don't anyone worry about clockworks in this year's tournament. After Mikko won with the clockwork soldier last year I retired it (like I do every winner). I'm not gonna reveal to replacement just yet, but long time spectators will recognize something... familiar... about the new contestant.
