While exploring Hyde, the party comes across the Hyde Bellicose Arena. The Bellicose Arena is a popular sport on Middara that pitches teams against each other in battle. Luckily, a magical item called a Bellicose Cube keeps participants from serious harm while also allowing them to not hold back.
After bantering about their favorite Bellicose teams and some famous matches in Middaran history, the group is urged by Padric to play a match. The group excitedly decide to blow off some steam by engaging in some good old fashioned combat with each other.
Padric pairs the Zeke and Nightingale up and then pitches the royalty against their friends.
