The jousting tournament is annual event in the kingdom of Lexina, and is just a few days away. It is meant to bring the far reaches of the kingdom together. In Lexina there are two different races in the kingdom: humans and elves. The elves are slaves of the humans, being the physically weaker of the two races. Humans and elves aren't allowed to breed, but sometimes half-elves are born. Those half-elves are usually rejected by both races, and either banished from the kingdom or killed. Alston Bradshaw is pretty famous in the kingdom because he has been the champion of the annual tournament for the past decade. Today they were having a dinner for all those participating in the tounament, and a festival for the people of Lexina, so he started making his way towards the castle. As he was walking through the crowds of people that were in the streets of Lexina, a few were already congratulating him. As if they knew he was going to win, but he knew that there was going to be tough competition this year. This was probably the biggest jousting tournament that he's ever been in, because there has been more knight's competing in the tournament than ever before. He heard that there was going to be one new knight that would be entering the tournament. He was curious to know more about the new contender, he only knew that he was from the outskirts of Lexina, and he was the only one that he had never met before. The likely hood of the having a match together is probably low though, or unless he becomes one of the finalist with him. 'I wonder if he's going to be any good..I better not let my gaurd down though, i have to stay focused duing the match.' he thought to himself as he walked towards the castle. It was usual for him to think about new contender's this way to see if they were actually worth versing.
