The Barrel Pot is holding a high-stakes tournament for gamblers, advertising for chance-takers as far as Yaralon and Scalvoris. The tournament has drawn a great amount of interest, and many sailors, gamblers, and other people looking to get rich quickly gather to try their hands at the finest players in Rharne. Brawls are almost guaranteed to break out during the more contentious games, as The Barrel Pot provides copious amounts of libations for the enjoyment of the contestants.

Deception: Cheating at cards is hard when you have many eyes upon you.
Etiquette: Refusing a brawl in Rharne can brand one a pariah.

Linguistics: Common Language: No means Não
Linguistics: There's more to language than just phonetics.
Wealth: -1 WP
Injuries: Keque's ribs will hurt for a while because of that bear hug Edward gave him.
Renown: 5, for cheating at cards.
Magic XP: -
Skill Review: Appropriate to level.
Consequences: Keque'd better avoid the Barrel Pot in the near future. Edward and his fellow players, but especially Edward are quite irritated because Keque tried to cheat. If they meet him again, he might be forced to fight and get a beating, after all. And what more, he's been branded a pariah because he refused a brawl!
That being said, it's been a while since I reviewed a Zuny thread. I was quite amused when he ended up taking part in a game even though he didn't really want to.
I like that you had his lack of language skills play a part, and I thought it was interesting that his Thespian ability affected him like that.
I can definitely understand how his behaviour might get on people's nerves. I appreciate that you had that play a part!
I was about to wonder if I should assign overplaying consequences of some kind because Zuny kept on slipping cards into his sleeve, but apparently, Edward noticed after all!
That was great. Fortunately, Keque managed to get away!
Enjoy your rewards!
