Episode 12: The ranks are out!

A month had past since the Festival of the Ranks took place. The celebration, which had fulfilled its purpose of answering the cravings for leisure of the city folk, was over. Revitalized, the people of Zotharith had slipped back into their usual, daily rhythms. The warriors and mages, on the other hand, had been less at ease, as the new rankings had not yet been established. Not all of them were able to participate in the festival's battles. Some were desperate to attract the attention of the Zotharian elite and prove their strength; recklessly accepting tasks beyond their capabilities and getting into unrequested duels with strong fighters.

However, the occurrence of these events came to an end, as on this day, the new ranks were revealed. Following tradition, the 30 highest-ranked wizards and warriors were announced at the city square, by none other than Zeruko Urima. Exetrius attended the ceremony, like just about any other inhabitant of the city. Seeing the tables turn at the very top is always exciting! 

Afterwards, he went to the town hall, to check out the complete rankings. It turned out that he had climbed four places on the mage ranking, form 43rd to 39th, despite the fact that he hadn't won a magic combat match during the festival. He had also established a warrior rank: 121st place, which was a little underwhelming... Meanwhile, Yukino climbed an whopping 17 places, obtaining the 55th warrior rank. 

He went home, packed a bag, and set off for an afternoon training session in the forest, to get some piece of mind. On his way out of the city, Enzan Armafur, whom he had become friends with, caught up to him. Of course, there were important matters to discuss...

Enzan

Dude, have you seen Kira Derisquar today? She's hot! 

Exetrius

Enzan, we've talked about this... But I'll tell you what's hot: the flames of my new spell, it's on fire! I'll show you in a moment.

Enzan

Hah, bring it on, I'll absorb them and fire them back at you and I will beat you!

Exetrius

Sure, I bet you can't! Afterall, I'm ranked more then ten places above you!

You're pushing your luck...

To be continued.... in the next episode: Taking a stand, for Nocturnus!

 

Hi all, it's been a while since I've done a GoH build! I'm sorry that the build is unrelated to the story, but I've been wanting to physically expand the city of Zotharith, while I also really needed some story progression. This watchtower is found at the edge of the city, near the forest. More pictures can be found on my Flickr, thank you for viewing! As always, C&C appreciated! :classic:

Nice build Exetrius, I love the shaping of the tower and the landscape. The lantern is a nice touch to.

Though the tower is nice, the best part of this build is the really cool colourscheme! Great job!

Couldn't help myself, it was pretty much the perfect set-up... :tongue: Thanks!

Keeping working hard..you'll climb those ranks! Every hero needs a starting point.

Exetrius will keep moving forward, and upward: to the top. :wink:

Very unique tower, I think it fits well in the setting you've been creating :thumbup:

Thank you! :classic: I tried to keep the style in line with the one on my arena (from last episode), which is currently the only other building that I built for Zotharith. That one was a little more inspired by Khaliphlin, where this one a little more by Mitgardia.

Thank you! Seeing how my last dark orange tree (in episode 6) was a bit of a failure, I'm glad this one turned out quite alright. :classic:
