The Beginning Of The Games + Day 1

And we're back. The following is the combined perspectives of everyone's entries. From here on, you will have to submit one entry per two weeks, just as before. You will cover a single day in those weeks. Remember to confer with your alliance members and to REREAD THE RULES.
Before that, though, here are the pack contents that have been taken.

As the gong sounds, most competitors move forwards off their pedestals. At once, Ganz from 11 trips over her feet in eagerness and buries her skull into an upturned hatchet, becoming the first death of the Games.
The only tributes that manoeuvre themselves in the opposite direction are Inkbright of 8, Nemesis 6 and Sky 3. Nemesis submerges himself in the 10m stretch of water at once and soon encounters Sky once on dry land again. He manages to submerge her head into the water once again and drowns her in a few short minutes.
Meanwhile, many of the other competitors have sprinted into the very heart of the Cornucopia. Every competitor for Districts 1 and two reach the Cornucopia and emerge with weapons. Cain of 2 guards the weapons while the other three go off to hunt. Inkbright acquires rope of a fair length after tripping over it and then follows Nemesis across the water. Vicissitude of 1 kills Life of 7 and Braginski of 5 takes down LeStarre of 10 with a knife to the neck. Gray of 9 plunges a knife into the skull of his fellow District partner, Leamy, and then heads for the water stretch with a blue pack.

Wolf of 6 has secured a blue backpack and has retreated into the forest along with her allies, Inkbright (who finally made it to dry land after a good minute or so of panicking in the water), Leno of 8, and Nemesis, while Cat from 12 follows suit, though not part of the pack. She carries a green pack and a few different assorted items. Gray works up the courage to plunge into the water, crosses it, and sprints for the jungle where he lingers out of sight, waiting for the bloodbath to pass. Threatening of 4 has secured a red and a green pack along with a spear, and has ended the life of Goran from 10. Somewhere in here Braginski kills LeStarre from 10. 
Rose of 4 and Daniels of 11 have both caught up with Threatening, another complete alliance, with a single orange pack and a few knives. Rose suffers a knife wound to her shoulder, and the trio head for the forest. Cain kills Fitz of 7 with a sword.
Phoenix retreats into the jungle a fair distance away from Gray with no weapons and a yellow pack.

Cieran Sever, Vestige Vicissitude, Ariston Nevmer, Miss Cain, Nixion Strange and Sparky Braginski remain at the Cornucopia as the career pack of the Games. 
Eden Threatening, Death Rose and Tug Daniels run through the forest as an alliance. 
   Alvard Nemesis, Christine Wolf, Cambric Leno and Star Inkbright also dwell in the forest as another alliance.
Flame Phoenix runs from the Cornucopia in the jungle, alone. Shaun Gray also resides in the jungle, though on the outskirts, watching the careers.

The bodies of Helena Sky, Darcy Fitz, Niamh Life, Elizabeth Leamy, Pullus Goran, Kestrel LeStarre, Tarny Ganz and Robby Shepard litter the concrete slab and make up the dead. The cannon fires seven times. The bloodbath comes to a close. The games begin.


Start. You have two weeks to submit your entries to me via email [] and then comment them on this post after getting my permission. By the 24th of October this has to be completed. If you need extra time, this is fine, as long as you have a good reason for it, as always.

Due to reduced internet speed tonight, it appears I can't upload the maps containing information on water streams or the time it takes to cross certain areas of the arena. Those will be uploaded tomorrow.

Certain conditions concerning different areas of the arena are also in the process of being written and will be uploaded as soon as they are completed.
