This is a fabulous comparison between the cultures. My favorite was the Bukno-Baha girl who made it all seem so easy. Otter's sullen disposition was a turnoff, though I hope he can win, once. The Fierce Ones inclusion was a nice, touch, reminding us that they're not *just* fierce and nightmarish. :)

Very nice to see a glimpse of three different cultures and how they handle games/competitions.
Lionkiller is such an intriguing character! All those hints at his former life and the cultures he had already seen. I wonder if he gets the soldiers he is looking for in the end here in this new land.

Interesting to see some similarities (and differences) between our humans and elves. Lionkiller fascinates me as a character - I'm still catching up with our elves, so I've put off reading too much about the trolls or humans yet, but now I'm looking forward to doing so even more than before!

Games are such a great subject to show the similarities between cultures! There is always competitive spirit and ambition of some kind, and just for a moment, it makes you almost forget the differences between the populations, and think that if they met, all other factors aside, they'd be able to find something in common.

I LOVE this comparison. It's a neat way to show that games and even similar once will show up in every culture and I love the different mood that comes with each one of those.
The elf one has something that feels lighthearted to it and I loved that you pointed out the two best archers and the ambition Otter showed here are a great touch.

The second has to be my favorite. It gives the whole game idea such a serious and grave touch. And you know I just fell in love with the Bukno-Baha girl. Just from these few lines I knew I want to claim her. No idea why but she threw that spear right into my heart!

And the last one has something so wild and powerful. It shows a rough but fun side of how the Fierce Once play this variation of the game. Great work on this.
