"Looks like we're here."

The navigator began to peek ahead catching sight of the impending Pelican Bay. As per usual, the voyage was quite relaxing. She couldn't help but take in a little pride in her abilities in ensuring her friends could get to the island safely. As they began to move their way closer, she took in just the sheer amount of ships present. So, Cid's words were true.

"Been awhile since I've seen this many pirates together..."

Once docked, she began to make her way towards the helm to ensure everything was alright. She caught sight of what seemed to be hoards of cheerful and rowdy pirates parading about. Some spoke of their voyages boasting about their achievements. Others spoke of daring escapes at the hands of the Marines. Others spoke of their usurp of strongholds and trade routes. Even someone speaking of a Davy Back Fight that happened on the island previously doubling the size of his crew comfortably through the spirit of festivities. The recounting of stories of past continued on by the fireside as many pirates and captains alive drake at their deployed boozes in luxury.

"Quite a bit of storytelling tonight. Huh... You know it's quite rare to see moments like this. Let's go over and join the festivities. I'm kinda jealous."

Cid's excitement grew as their small vessel floated into Pelican bay, if the forest of ships masts that swayed above the water was any indication then the pirate presence here was bigger than she thought. The fishwoman scrambled up the ropes and gazed ahead from the small viewing platform, trying to see what she could of the town. Jumping down she landed with a thud upon the deck and grinned at her two shipmates.

Whaddya think? We should be able to find some here right?

After securing the ship to the dock the crew made their way into the town, the sheer amount and variety of sights and sounds that surrounded them was overwhelming at first. Not sure where to begin they decided on a drink to start the night off. They had a purpose for coming to this island and the first thing they needed to do was establish themselves.

It seems the time on Karate Island had come to a rather abrupt end, much to the disapproval of the Kuja maiden but considering crew mates outweighed her favor in deciding to stay, they opted to leave. As they sailed the oceans, Mirabelle continued to practice her skills in hand-to-hand combat, often times finding herself moving a little too quickly for her own good. The journey to the next island took some time but once they arrived at Pelican Bay, she managed to give a ligt stretch as the dismounted the ship and headed to mingle with the others. V complained about being a little jealous, which honestly caused Mirabelle to lightly jab her in the arm. “Are we not enough entertainment for you?” she joked with a smile. She wondered who she was gonna meet while here, of course the first thing she’d try to do is attempt to snatch some cash but for now, she was on her best behavior.

As they walked past a bar, Mirabelle nudged to the two of them. "How about a drinking game? Let's see who can hold their liquor best on the crew" she challenged her captain and Cid to a little game. "Of course all rounds are on me"

V gave a small playful roll of the eyes. If anything, both of their company had been more than enough entertainment on their whole way there. "Yeah I dunno sometimes you both get real under my skin." A tease of course. The mention of a drinking game made her a bit unease. Could she even hold he liquor? It was hard to even tell since she never really had more than a drink at a time. "I don't know if I'd been too good for a drinking game. After all, I still want to be at least a little perceptive of this place just in case something were to happen. But I'll have a drink. In the spirit of things. Maybe challenge one of these fellows." She said tilting her head towards the bar area.

Seems it didn't take long for the hoards of Pelican's to take refugee upon their ship. It was almost concerning but every ship seemed to have them present. Must have just been a seasonal thing; as far as she knew.

Well if V won't accept ya challenge I will!

Cid laughs as she claps Mira on the back and orders drinks for all three of them. Eagerly downing the whole glass as soon as it reached her hand.

That's one. V maybe you can scope out the competition while we draw some attention?

Cidirae smiled even wider, getting to have some fun while also accomplishing their goals was always the best way to pass some time. The fishwoman continues to drink and isn't shy, being loud and boisterous as they sat at their table. Myriad needed to fly their flag so they would be seen, perhaps recognised. This was just the start.

It seems V was the stick in the mud again of the crew and their antics; well, fun antics. However, Cid would be the one to take up the challenge; as she lightly patted Mirabelle on her back. “Haha! Alright lets party!” she turned to the bar as they arrived; and Cid made orders for the drinks. Mirabelle would quickly reach out for the glass; and with a cheers with Cid she would begin to drink with her. “Bottoms up!” she reared her head back; its almost like she’s use to it. Truth be told, she sort of is – back on Amazon Lily she was known be a little party animal, prior to having her daughter of. “And that’s one down, more to go!

The 78th Davy Back Fight Competition

You must be registered for see images
The Competition known as the Davy Back Fights have decided to place on Swallow Island, home to quite the festive number of pirates. Quite the talk of North Blue, the rampant increase piracy saw the formation of many crews which made the attendance rate of this pirate competition explode ten times over. Although the participants of the tournament did not change, for the sake of the host’s time and efforts, the frequency of which this historic competition took place had spiked. Agreed among the captains currently present in Swallow, the Davy Back Fights were soon starting.​



Part # One: The Qualifiers
→ The Myriad Pirates currently do not have permission to enter the Davy Back Fight Competition. This competition between Pirate Captains can only begin once the selected captains have come to an agreement on the challenges. That has already transpired and the competition is set to begin the next day. Currently, the Myriad Pirates are within a tavern with one of the participating crews as Mirabelle and Cidirae engage in a drinking contest. Role-Play Saratoga, Mirabelle, & Cidirae and Understand the Actions Committed will Most Likely Induce an Official Roll.

Each Round a Different Brand of Liquor will be Brought Out. The Brands are Randomize So Nobody Will Benefit in Any Regard. The Type of Liquor Will Also Differ but At Random Rounds. At the Beginning of Each Round, an Official Roll will be Done to Determine if the Participants Can Withstand the Different Type of Liquor or Succumb to Mixing.

Failing that Roll Means the Character Has Succumbed to the Liquor and One [1] Failure is Added to All Future Official Rolls. Achieving a Success On that Roll Grants the Character One [1] Additional Success to All Future Rolls. The Character Can Fail X Amount of Times, Where X is Determined by the Constitution Attribute. The Standard Official Roll is One [1] Success and Failure.

Each Time the Character Fails a Compromise Roll, One [1] Failure is Added On the Next Official Roll Only. When the Character Passes a Compromise Roll, One [1] Success is Added On the Next Official Roll. The Individuals Deemed Victorious are the Ones that Remain Conscious After Ten [10] Rounds. In the Case of a Tie, Leona will be Impressed and Still Help.

She gave a small roll of the eyes before smiling. She knew what was best for her. Her and liquor didn't exactly mix at times. She began to tap her chin lightly looking at the commotion among the masses. They were in great spirits but there seemed to be a specific reason as of why. Perhaps they needed to draw a bit of attention to get more information on this and she knew just how to do it.

"Hey, you two. If you're going to do this competition, let's see just how many others around you can beat. I have a feeling that if we rack of a figurative body count, it could lead to some positive overseers."

She gave a small smile and a nod. "And keep this in mind, I'm not cleaning up after you two if you get sick from this."

Despite the first feeling as if it scalded the fishwomans throat as it went down, this simply helped warm Cid up. The following drinks all went down smoothly. She laughed as she finished the next round and slapped the cup back on the table.

Keep it up Mira, don't fall behind now!

Cid spoke loudly, trying to draw attention towards their table as the bottles began to stack up. She continued to drink and boast, beginning to show off for the surrounding pirates. Challenging them to try to harm her with their bare fists. Might as well take the opportunity to further train her body even as the alcohol warmed her belly from within. She would take any comers, allowing them to strike her once without repercussion.

Come now, who's next?

Part # One: The Qualifiers
→ Upon hearing the challenges ushered by Cidirae, a bunch of pirates began to line up wanting to test her grit. A total of ten cabin boys, each one with a sleazy demeanor, thought to take advantage of Cidirae’s offer to get one free shot. They were unaware if she was partaking in the Davy Back Fights, but the lessen the competition the better their chances of winning. Besides, if her crew were active participants, lugging around damaged goods would still suffice in their goal to win. [ Ten [10] Official Rolls will be Conducted to Determine the Difficult Level of the Ten Strangers that Accepted Cidirae's Challenge. Basic will Deal Four [4] Damage Magnitude | Intermediate Level will Deal Eight [8] Damage Magnitude & Possess the Raw Power Keyword | Expert Level will Deal Twelve [12] Damage Magnitude & Possess the Penetrate Power Keyword ]

And so the drinking game had begun with Mirabelle vs Cid. It was quite clear that Mirabelle intended on winning the little contest between her and her bestfriend. Mirabelle would grab the first cup, but as she took the shot – this brand of rum wasn’t her forte at all. “Blah tastes like shit…next!” she took the next rum down quite easily this time. It was a couple more rounds, with the two having a good time but Mirabelle being quite literally a lightweight would have reached her limits pretty early into the game. “Bahahah! The drinks…*hiccup* was greeeeaaaattt! Now let’s do the next….bleh…” she tried to form words, but it seems the girl had reached her limit, as she started to tilt left and right, as she immediately face planned onto the table. Thankfully her natural body’s shaving prevented any sort of damage to her delicate little face. “I wuv you…” she uttered, as within her mind she was dreaming about her daughter whom she left back home at Amazon Lily. She snored; the bottle of alcohol tipping over and pouring across the table.

With the pleasant buzz of alcohol still hanging around her Cid was confident as a steady line of pirates grew in front of her, eager to take her challenge. Most likely they were just eager to hit someone that wouldn't hit back. The first couple of contestants struck her and she barely felt anything, no sweat. However following that was a small group that seemed different, more steady and sure of themselves. Not eager but instead quietly confident. Cid grinned at this.

Well maybe we have some worthy challengers after all.

She knew from the strike of the first one that she was in trouble, the damage seemed to penetrate deeper than it should have. The following pirates were similar, their strikes seeming to hit deep into her core, perhaps they had some sort of technique in common. When the next one stepped up Cid was barely hanging on.
Shit-

Despite this Cid grinned wider and didn't guard herself, looking the pirate in the eye as he struck her and she slumped forwards, blacking out.

V remained with a simple face of utter confusion and mostly concern. If anything this was all the more reason to why she would rarely let alcohol touch her lips. She turned to see that Mirabelle had been out cold first on the nearby table. Her head quickly began to turn towards Cid who seemed to equally be getting into her own mess.

"Ah boy..."

A hand began to rest onto another table and with a swift fold of the hand, the table began to float it's way over to her blacking out companion securing her body on it. She moved her finger once more bringing her back to her side. She shifted her eyes between the two and sighed.

"Talk about party poopers... Well I guess I have no choice but to get you guys somewhere to rest after I'm done watching the show.

Although the merriment that surrounded her, it felt a bit odd to not be experiencing it with her companions. She glanced over to the both of them giving an idle raise of the eyebrow. She couldn't possibly leave them there but sitting quietly and observing was beginning to get a bit... dull.

She tilted her head towards the nearby group of pirates enjoying the festivities. Now that she thought about it, she couldn't quite make out just who the captain's were that would be taking part in this Davy Back Fight. "Wouldn't mind telling me who's on the chop block for tomorrow would you?" She said to some of the party goers. Clearly from the sheer number of attendees, it must have been some well-established individual's. "I haven't been able to see one of these things first hand. Looking forward to it. Maybe even taking part in one."

Part # One: The Qualifiers
→ Full of alcohol and merry, the pirates Saratoga spoke to begin to bombard her with excitement. They were confused as to why she was asking questions and not partying in celebration for tomorrow’s event. One would begin yapping about how the Davy Back Fight Competition was perhaps the greatest source of pirate entertainment out there. Almost like a circus, the tournament would travel around and test the mettle of all pirates whom were brave enough to compete. Another would drunkenly stumble through his comments, but most of it gave the impression that nobody knew what was planned for tomorrow. Another explained it was best that way for fair competition. The last pirate said the tournament was only for crews invited to join by the participating captains. The weak were not welcomed! After that, they began to cheer Saratoga on to drink with them.​

So it was very much like how the books had stated. She recalled seeing that there was an honor about the competitors and that even those who disrupted the spirits of the competition would be dragged to the depths by Davy Jones himself. How fascinating. She turned to look towards the crowd once more trying to catch a glimpse among the masses. The captain's called the shots around here. If she wanted to get in on this, she'd have to catch wind of them.

"Oh right. So where are the lucky heads here? I'd like a chance to meet the captain's." She said freezing once she was urged to drink. A small scoff could be heard under her breath as she instinctively took a hold of the nearby shot glass passing it to her already drunken companion. Mirabelle would put more use to it... hopefully. The empty glass was than placed in front of her. For aesthetic reasons? Perhaps so.

Only one more entry would be allowed and those eager captains were left up to decide themselves. One of the drunken pirates would make the fleeting remark that there was apparently rumors about some sort of brawl going down at sunset. The winner would be recognized as the last captain to join the fray for tomorrow’s event. Another excitedly confirmed hearing the same rumor and even added that the brawl is supposed to happening at Beak Boulevard.​

A brawl. Well it was usually the easiest way to handle things like this. But now that she had an idea of the situation, she could find a way to some how sway herself into this brawl. Her eyes shifted to her companions who still were pretty out of it. Well, looked like she would have to handle this on her own for now. "You've all been very helpful. I greatly appreciate it. I'll have to see what I can do about this so called rumor and maybe me and my friends may just be able to join in on the fun." Though for right now, it seemed it would only be her. She shifted her way over to her companions securing their arms around her as she began to shift her way out of the bar area and to Beak Boulevard where she would settle in and await the approach of sunset.
