Title: The Crow Flies at Death Knight
In a castle made of volcanic rock sits Eric von Deathkiller, Daranos' most vile dark knight. He is eating a hand sandwich, while the hand is still attached to his girlfriend's ex-boyfriend, when a servant runs in with a letter addressed to Eric. It is an invitation to an end of the world party for the most evil beings of Daranos, and Eric leaves immediately. Travelling through the great forest he is suddenly overcome with hunger and after coming upon some minstrels rehearsing, demands food from them. The minstrels run and hide in a stump while Eric steals the contents of their picnic basket, but one of the minstrels bites into a potato chip, which alerts Deathkiller to their location. He rips the stump from the ground and commands them to give him the chips, and when they refuse he kills them by pulling a decapitated wizard head from his pack and shooting lasers from the eyes. Later, at the party, Eric is allowed entry by the shit elemental bouncer, and it is revealed that the party is Queen Axwound's doing. She calls Deathkiller forward and commands him to kneel, to which the knight responds that she must show him full frontal first. The two stare at eachother for a moment, then Eric performs several feats of strength and Axwound is indifferent, which causes Eric to swear his fealty to the queen. She then tells Eric his first task is to kill a dark wizard at the party whom she points out.
Title: The Gauntlet
On a dark night in the middle of who the fuck knows where, in the Rust, a shady tavern. A knight sits in the darkest corner, already three ales deep, waiting for someone to come forward and offer him a job to his liking. An old wizard approaches looking for someone to help him find his pet cat, but the knight tells the wizard to get the fuck out. Another wizard dressed in black robes approaches, offering a job to kick some major ass, and the knight is intrigued. The fighter offers introduces himself as Randal and asks for details. The wizard explains that there is a fist fighting tournament, the championship prize of which is a gauntlet called the Gauntlet of Face Fuckery - punching someone while wearing the gauntlet causes their face to explode so hard that their dad and dad's brother will also feel it. Randal accepts the job for the price of 17 treasure chests full of gold and a bonecar with enough bone gas to get to Stormscale. After a training montage, Randal enters himself as Nailtooth into the pit of pugilists. His first opponent is Meatgrinder, a gray skinned orc with glowing red eyes, razor sharp teeth, and unholy rune tattoos. Meatgrinder freezes his handles into razor sharp ice meat tenderizers, but Randal counters by spitting fire ale onto him and crushing his skull with a single stomp. The crowd goes wild, but then several figures in dark robes draw their swords and slaughter them all and a echoing voice tells Sir Randal that he has forgotten his place...
