[Kasine's Gauntlet, Entrance To The Pit]
Lavish tapestries depicting battles between warriors and giant beasts adorn the smooth metal walls. Brightly colored banners hang from the broad ceiling beams and flutter tauntingly with any whisper of a breeze. Two curving stairways, displaying red and blue runners, trail up the eastern and western walls to lead toward the stands which overlook the arena floor.
A massive gate leads back outside.
Obvious exits: north.


[Kasine's Gauntlet, Entrance To The Pit]
Hordes of people fill the hall as hopeful combatants mingle amongst the spectators, awaiting their chance at the pit. A smooth silversteel desk piled with stacks of parchment, scrolls, and ink bottles rests before the gated entrance to the pit. Behind the desk, a small army of heavily armored guards flanks the gated entrance to the fighting pit, keeping watch for any vicious beasts attempting to escape the arena.
You also see a registration list, a large sign with bold red lettering and Vuori. Obvious exits: east, south, west.


A large sign with bold red lettering reads:

      ~~~ Welcome one and all to Kasine's Gauntlet ~~~

If you are considering challenging the Gauntlet, please take a few moments to review the rules and procedures below.  
We will not be held responsible for accidents or loss on your behalf because you choose to ignore this sign.

The first and most important point is that there is a very good chance you will die during the competition.  
It you do happen to pass, your corpse will be removed from the pit and moved to a recovery room with your possessions.  
We ~DO NOT~ staff any clerics or empaths for public usage, so you must find your own method of returning to life. 
No exceptions will be made under any circumstances, period.

If death's hand finds you, we will make the best attempt to move all of your possessions with your corpse, but we might 
not gather them all.  Do not bring anything with you that is not easily replaceable, and we will ~NOT~ compensate for your loss.

If you understand the above, you may join the list and await your chance to enter the pit.  
You must be present when your name is called, or else the attendants will go onto the next name.  
When your name is called you will enter the pit, and the announcer will call your name so the crowd 
gathered in the stands may watch your match, and cheer you onward to victory.

Soon after you enter the pit, creatures will be released one by one until you slay the final beast.  
This is not an undertaking for the meek of heart, soul, and body.  Be prepared for the battle of your life!

By joining the list to enter the Gauntlet, you have read, comprehended and agreed to the above guidelines, 
and you fully understand that no exceptions will be made under any circumstances.

Thank you and may the luck of the gods be with you!

[Kasine's Gauntlet, Hall of Champions]
Crystal cases line the walls of the passage, their icesteel shelves loaded with the equipment of the long lost champions of the past. Several large steel-wrought lanterns dangle from the thick beams that reinforce the ceiling, casting a shifting yellow candle light across the surface of the plush blue carpet that lines the hallway. Gentle curls of silver smoke waft from several incense burners hidden amongst the foliage arranged about the area, filling the air with the strong smell of lilac.
You also see a massive iron door. Obvious exits: east.


[Kasine's Gauntlet, Recovery Room]
The room is a flurry of activity as the battered bodies of the fighters are unceremoniously hauled into the room and heaved onto the nearest available cot. Groups of weary attendants quickly shuffle between the wounded gladiators, their formerly white robes drenched in the deep crimson of fresh blood. A large silversteel cabinet is set into the eastern wall, designed to hold herbs to help facilitate the healing of those wounded.
You also see a massive iron door.
Obvious exits: none.


[Kasine's Gauntlet, Amphitheater]
Rows of padded seats slant upwards along the curved walls, giving ample room to house any number of spectators. Banners in bright shades of red and blue hang from the polished metal beams that arch overhead. A few darkly clad figures weave amongst the crowd, taking side bets on the combatants' chances in the pit, careful to stay inconspicuous under the watchful eye of the patrolling guards. A stairway stretches downward along the eastern wall.
You also see a brightly painted sign with flowing lettering.
Obvious exits: northwest.


A sign reads:

"To watch a contestant in the fighting pit, please OBSERVE the area to see who is currently fighting."


[Kasine's Gauntlet, Refreshment Stand]
This three-sided stand is crafted from polished steel walls and etched with the figures of hulking monsters. The open side faces the pit, allowing the patrons to watch the battles below while making their pick of food from the long counter or pouring themselves a drink from the keg rack above it. Several beautiful maidens stand behind the counter, ready to pass overflowing glasses to the spectators.
You also see a large white notice and a brightly painted sign with flowing lettering.
