Gathers weren't really Iggharudube's thing but he did like to go to them once in awhile. The Gather at Evanoria Weyrhold however promised to be something to remember. Because it was a significant Gather Inggharudube also hoped it'll attract certain people who would benefit his own personal line of work, bounty hunting. Large Gathers, at least those he went to often allowed him to pickup new Bounties, sometimes the actual criminal themselves. It was amusing how some felt a large gathering of people would hide them instead of serve as an excellent way to track them down.
He didn't have any bounties he was hunting however so he was hoping to pick up a few new ones to keep an eye out. Other than that Inggharudube hoped to have a good time, pitting his strength and skill with swords and whip against others or simply enjoying any willing women and looking over what merchants were selling. He was always on the lookout for better equipment than what he currently had and a bargain in the progress.
The sword fighting competition did catch his attention. Normally he didn't care about showing off his skill for a prize but he did enjoy the challenge of a good fight. The only drawback was this wouldn't be the sort of fight he got into, but an honourable style of fighting. In other words he felt it wasn't real fighting. When it came to fighting for your life, any trick was permissible.
When he spotted a certain Daywher Handler he hadn't spoken to for awhile, Inggharudube grinned. They never did get a chance to spar before, now they may very well have their chance.
"We meet again Natara," Inggharudube greeted the Copperhandler. "I see you are signing up for the Sword Fighting competition as well. Perhaps we will cross swords during this contest and see which of us is the better swordsperson."
He turned towards the scribe keeping track of all the applicants. "Count me in. Name's Inggharudube, with two 'g's." He hated it when people misspelled his name. When the scribe looked at him in confusion he sighed and simply spelled out his full name. Satisfied the scribe got it right he turned his attention to the Daywher Handler.
"What do you think your odds are of winning this tournament?" he asked, curious at how highly the woman rated herself. He had encountered many very skilled women when it came to the sword and other weapons but most did leave that sort of work for men simply because men were on the average stronger than a woman. In his opinion at least. Not that he would ever underestimate a woman as he knew what they lack in raw physical power they often made up with agility, speed and stamina.
OOC: Inggharudube has Weaponsmaster ability in broadsword and whip.
