    "Well, everyone's going to be getting into position soon, the Earl himself will be starting off the race in an hour or so." he says, looking up at the sun.

    Brandon nods and heads off to the starting line, looking for buildings he could easily climb if need be.

    "Now remember, everyone!" the Earl starts, some three quarters of an hour later, "You must find the red jacketed keyholder first. Then get your horse, then find the blue jacketed keyholder, and return here. They could be anywhere, so keep your eyes peeled! Use any means necessary to accomplish your goal. Of course, all criminal acts are still subject to legal repercussions, but all else is fair game. Ready... And... GO!" he exclaims, a series of firecrackers going off behind his raised arms.

    Brandon takes off in the direction of a majority of the people, trying to get out in front of them.

    You manage to take an early lead, until a thought strikes you... you have no idea where your destination is. Without a directional goal, speed is pointless. What to do then?

    Understanding that the man said to find the horses at the stable on the opposite side of the town, Brandon heads to the opposite side of the town from the stables to find the keyholder in red.

    (OOC: I clearly can't read. Sorry about that.)

    You arrive at the opposite end of town, the harbor, rather quickly. Unfortunately, nobody in a red jacket stands out. God thing you're an expert at hunting that which you've never seen, because this could get tricky.

    Brandon looks around for the tallest central structure he can feasibly climb in a short amount of time; then books off to climb it.

    You find an unimpressive clocktower nearby. Nevertheless, it is the tallest building around.
    Are you going to enter it and try to get access to the stairs, or scale the exterior?

    Brandon looks to see the condition of the exterior and the size and amount of windows on the clocktower.


    (OOC: If I can reasonably be sure that the DC is less than 15 for climbing, I'll climb if there doesn't seem to be that many windows.)

    There aren't too many windows... give me 5 climb (athletics, I believe it's called now?) checks, and we'll see how it is.

    Suffering no fatal slips, and only a couple missteps that cost nothing more than a few seconds, you manage to arrive at the top of the main body of the tower. The clock is only a few meters up, though getting to it from here, however, would be difficult, due to the wide ceiling. You do, however, spot a window, should you choose to enter.

    Brandon ducks into the window and attempts to get as high up as he can to look around the city.

    Ducking into the window, you see a man sitting on the stairs to go up to the clockwork and bells. "Hello, friend!" he says, standing up and steping into the light, his red jacket glittering in the sunlight. "You climbed up the side of the tower? Brave man you are, ah?" he says, pulling out a ring with two keys on it, and yanks one off. "You're here for this, aren't you?"

    "Ah! Thank you very much kind sir!"

    Brandon then runs down the stairs, confident now that he got there first. He heads over to the stable post-haste.

    Along the way, a few people, possibly innocent, possibly setups, get in your way. But any means necessary, right? A few shoves and the way is clear. Eventually reaching the stables, you see that two of the posts are without horses. But third place in a group of 25 isn't bad, right? The stablemaster smiles at you as you match the number on your key to the numbered post, and free the horse. "Circle the city, lad! There's plenty of time to catch up!"

    You are able to reach the first checkpoint with no real effort, the man cheerily handing you a carved piece of glass out of a box, shouting encouragement behind you.

    Sometime between the first checkpoint and the second, you see a man sitting on the ground, groaning, his horse having tripped and fallen. Oddly it's facing backwards.

    (you made a successful perception check to notice the direction of the horse)

    Brandon gives the man a wide berth and continues on. Not skilled in healing, he'd probably do more harm than good.

    The second and third "gems" are easy enough to acquire, though when you reach the fourth and final checkpoint, you find a man on a horse hassling a young girl with a box. She's yelling something to the effect of only one gem per person, he's holding a knife in the air and demanding the whole box.

    Brandon grabs one of his new masterwork arrows and places it firmly in the arrow. He maneuvers the horse to around 15 feet from the man and draws the bow tight.

    "Stop!" He commands sternly. "I will place this arrow through your neck." He adds calmly.

    The man looks at you, drops the knife, and wrenches the box out of the girl's hands, riding off at an angle, albeit not very quickly. Apparently he doesn't know how to ride without hands. She starts chasing after him screaming "Give that back, you can't have it!"
