The eigth year of the Doubles Tournament was about to begin and already you could tell the atmosphere had changed.
It didn't help that the beastmen were still in control of the arena, but with the increase in the underground activity many of the more noble spectators had decided to stop attending leaving a more shady crowd.
If it wasn't for the fact that Morko was a massive warboss surrounded by boyz he might have actually worried about the dark strangers lurking in the tunnel that lead to the mountain craddled arena, but then again being an orc he wouldn't have minded the scuffle anyway.
Morko noted that the arena was in no better shape than it was last year. The beastmen really didn't care too much about cleaning and what ever parts of the stands were broken last year were still broken and you could even make out the blood spatters and shards of bone in and on the dusty ground.
As always the most busy part of the arena at this time was the betting ring. Man and beast yelling out odds and declaring how good or bad certain fighters were... hell the first round match-ups weren't even posted yet and that didn't stop them.
Morko never cared about betting, he was here for the fighting, and with 64 warriors from many different nations here for the sole goal of ripping each others hearts out it was sure not to be in short supply...
