TT Intro: This Is a Joke, Right?
This is my character intro for the Tourney, a member of the Average Gnomes. I was incredibly rushed near the end due to a misunderstanding of the deadline position. Please excuse the crummy photos and last build!
About this creation
Link to the Tourney!

Name: Dzargon
Race: Halidran
Guild: Average Gnomes
Bracket: Wrestling

-------------------------------------


With a splintering crash, the smarmy human runt smashed into the table and broke through it, hitting the hard wood floor beneath. Dzargon, a hulking Halidran, stood above him.
“Care to repeat that comment?” he snarled.


The pub went quiet at the noise as everyone turned to look at its source.


The offending human simply whimpered and ran out.
“Thought not,” Dzargon said with a nod.


Everyone continued to stare at him, and somewhat aggressively too. Dzargon realized he was the only non-human in the pub.
“Well, come on,” he said. “How would you like your race, intelligence and right to this land insulted like that?”
The humans resumed their business with some muttering.


Dzargon moved to an empty – but intact – table and leaned back in the chair, stretching.


A human in silver and blue armor sidled over and sat down across from him. Dzargon looked at him, one eyebrow raised. “Yes?”


“You handled that pretty well,” the human said, gesturing the splintered remains of the table and the furious looks of the pub’s owner.
Dzargon grinned. “Thanks, I try.”
“No, really. I was watching from over there. You held yourself back for quite some time before he really blew it. That’s rare in a Halidran.”
“Mm.”
“Anyways. I’m Halbert. No doubt you’ve heard of the Tourney?”
“Dzargon. And who hasn’t?”
“How would you like to compete? Would you be interested in a place in our guild?”



“You want me to join your guild? Really?”
“Yes.”
“Are you sure? I mean, I’m a Halidran. Apart from the publicity we get, I won’t fit into most human uniforms.”
“That can—“
“And on that note, what about the uniforms? I hope you don’t expect me to buy one. Nope, no extravaganza for me.”
“That’s been—”
“And what about horses? Only Wargs will take me, so I don’t think—”
“WE’RE HERE.” Halbert said loudly, cutting off the chattering Halidran as they arrived at a warehouse.


“Seriously, don’t make me regret this," the Mythronian said. "Now, after you.”


Dzargon opened the door and walked in.


The interior of the warehouse was all wood. Swords, bows and spears lined the walls while more, mixed with axes, knives, helmets and armor, lay in crates and barrels dotting the room.


And right smack in the middle were several men and a cyclops wearing only shirts and underwear, bright red and tight-fitting.


Dzargon gaped for a full ten seconds.


Then he threw back his head and howled with laughter. His knees buckled and tears formed in his eyes as he guffawed.

Then he realized no one was laughing with him. Abruptly he stopped.


He turned to Halbert. “This is a joke, right?”
The Mythronian simply looked at him, deadpan.


“You don’t...don’t seriously expect me to wear these—these......do you? I mean, look at the things...those shirts aren’t going to fit me!”


A grin flickered suddenly on Halbert’s face. “Hey, you’re right. They won’t.”
Dzargon suddenly realized what he was implying. The slight smile he’d still had on his face vanished on the spot.


Dzargon stamped along the path in the entrants’ parade as the crowd watching tittered and pointed. How dare those blasted humans force him into such an outfit...this Tourney had better be worth it. And muttering darkly, he continued on his way.

--------------------------------------

Whew! That was a lot of trouble to make. Allow me to explain some things now...
The poor lighting was because of a misunderstanding of the deadline position. I thought I had another day - bright outside lighting. When I found out I didn't, I had to take he shots indoors, at night and with crummy lighting. The pictures you see below are actually WIPs from earlier that day - I just didn't change them after that.
The quality of the later pictures is due to the fact that my camera was extremely low on charge while I was taking the pictures, so I was rushing to get it done before it died. I failed, and so had to use my dad's for a time.

My masterpiece, the tavern:

Quoting Stormjay Rider At last, someone who doesn't like the weird outfits. (Also, HTML doesn't work in the introduction section.)
Haha, yeah. But hey, it allowed me to incorporate some humor. :P (Ah, good to know.)

Quoting Thomas of Tortuga For a last minute build, this is pretty good! I'm guessing that the orc's reaction is much the same as your own when you discovered your guild uniform? XD
Thanks, and yes, this is a slightly exaggerated reflection of what actually happened (Halhi being the one to invite me to the Gnomes). :P

Quoting Gilbert Despathens I like the tavern. The round decorations over the windows and doors are I nice touch. I think the lighting could have been better, but I could tell that the build was very-well thought-out. Good luck in the Tourney.
Thanks! Yeah, since I thought I had another day I wasn't prepared to take pictures so soon, and had to do them indoors with crummy lighting.

Hey, it's just muscle. And he's still wearing the speedo, isn't he? :P
