Tim’s Tournament Preparation Shop: Buy 3 Pavilions and Get a Free Hot Dog Vendor

Grand Magic Games of Fairy Tail

Welcome one and all!  I see you brought some of your fighters to help you shop around for supplies.  Please note that we do not provide the venue.  Too many regulations in selling arenas, open areas for explosions, and whatever else you need.  This must all be locked down and the paperwork provided prior to doing business.  So, do you have everything that I need to know you’re a serious customer?  Thank you.

Now, we need to discuss the type of tournament you’re having because that will direct the rest of our conversation.  Is it fighting?  Perhaps magic or chariots?  We recently helped set up a tournament of professional sand castle makers, which was exciting.  The choices are endless, but I do see that you have fighters with you.  Swordsmen to be precise, which means you will need a few medical tents.  We provide all of the medical supplies, but only assistants.  It’s best that you hire your own doctors and we can give you a list of people for you to call.  May I interest you in a blacksmith station?  Three of them can be arranged since the arena you have reserved is fairly large.  We have various freelancers, so they will be asking for tips.  Nice to see us moving along so quickly.

You don’t have a roof, so I would recommend our rain protection package.  It is a set of tents that can house one hundred fighters and staff members.  For the audience, we can connect retractable cones to these buttresses.  They will rise up to cover the seats and are curved in a way that has the water roll to the outside of the arena.  I will warn you that this leaves the fighting area open, but we can provide a clear tent.  The only problem is that it can have glare and it can make ring outs more difficult.  It really depends on if your fighters mind getting wet.  I know this is all about one situation, but the weather is the biggest enemy for tournaments.  That being said, we can provide heaters if it’s cold and fans if it is hot.

Speaking of being hot, we have a special on ice cream vendors.  For every fifteen that you hire, you will get a hot pretzel or popcorn stand for free.  Our drink vendors come in groups of ten as well, which sounds like a lot, but you would be surprised how thankful people are for easy beverage access.  Cotton candy?  What kind of business would we be without those?  Peanuts is another story though.  Due to a higher rate of allergies, you need to sign these waivers and hire our allergy reaction eagle.  This bird is trained to respond to any signs of a reaction and arrive to deliver medicine.  Trade secret on how this was accomplished and we do have an owl for night events.  Here is a list of other food and souvenir vendors to choose from.  I will assign you a planner to help you with the placements.

Decorations is another area that we excel at.  You say that you want balloons, but outdoor areas make that a risk.  We can have some that are tied down and keep a room filled with extras in case of escapees.  I believe banners work better since they cannot fly away and work better with the wind.  Each of your fighters can have a banner and this can also be used as your standings board.  If they don’t want to use their faces then they can come up with a symbol.  Either way, these will be personalized and they can keep them after the event is complete.  Speaking of prizes, we have a vast collection of trophies and medals if you are in need of such things.  I could list them all, but we only have so much time on this planet.  Yes, we have an in-house artist who can make an entrance sign as well as murals if you want to decorate these walls.  It would be nice to add some color, but not so much that it distracts from the competition.

Those are the big pieces, so let’s get down to the details.  Not in public, so we’re going to have to go over here.  Who are all those people listening in on us and why are some of them typing?  I’m sure all of those people are figments of your imagination.

  1. I just want to host a drinking contest for every time Lloyd makes a dumb comment that he thinks is a joke.

    Yay! I love a good tournament! I head straight for the jousting arena every time I go to the Ren festival. So I would love an arena for jousting. But since hawks also play a prominent part, what can you give me in the way of hawks? I also want a turkey leg stand.

    Freelance blacksmiths sound great! Can I get a few bowyers and arrowsmiths also?

  3. We are doing a lance toss tournament. There is a first prize for whoever tosses the furthest lance and consolation prize for whoever catches it. I think I need some pretty attractive prizes, especially for the consolation. Any ideas?
