Battle of the Brooms
In the summer of 2148, Rednar of Pang i Bygget organized an advertised duel between two crested warriors, promising a third mystery guest in the arena. The announced pit fight down in the Sinterplant drew bets.
Following other entertainment, the fighters emerged in the round sintersand pit to the roars of the crowd, sporting red ribbons tucked into their belts. First to march into the arena was Konduktör Én, pumping his sword into the air and yelling the name of his: "Hjortkloe! Hjortkloe! Hjortkloe! Hjortkloe!"
Then followed a nimble neon-crested man armed with a wrench, and the heavily armoured Seth, who fought für Lindemann. The crowd greeted them loudly, and the first fight of agility ensued. The crested warriors grasped after each others' red ribbons, shielding themselves and roughing their opponents away in the arena. Seth defended himself mightily, but his bulky armour left him the slowest, and the most vulnerable in this loose-limbed and fast-footed battle. 'Borstis' at last managed to tug Seth's tail off, only to turn to his neon foe and see that very enemy stand triumphant with Konduktören's own proud ribbon in his hands. The HKM henchman threw himself to the floor in recognition of the neon fighter's victory. The lightest-armoured combatant carried home the first round.
Yet the planned tail fight was immediately followed by an unplanned melee, with a great deal of close quarter violence. The neon warrior once managed to grab Seth's arms from behind while 'Borstis' hit the red-crested juggernaut from the front. Yet the lightly armoured neon warrior, who had been so formidable in the tug-a-tail fight, was likewise doomed to fall in this contest of brute force and endurance. First fell Konduktör Én after a furious exchange of blows, and Seth the mighty hewed down his neon foe until he alone stood triumphant, roaring his victory to the jubilant crowds as the last man standing, with one foot placed on 'Borstis chest.
The best broom won: Seth!
As the crested warriors marched out of the arena, Konduktör Én held aloft an issue of HKM Comics and yelled: "Buy Hjortkloe comics!"
Thus concluded Kvastkampen: The Battle of the Brooms.
