Theme: Fantastic Duos.
Optional prompt: “The instruction booklet says 2-400 players.” by SarcasticCupcake5.

Tymon nodded. “Mmhmm. Pretty wack that no matter what happens today, I’m going to outlive you.” His smirk grew. “So much for killing me.”
I growled and changed the subject. “How many riders are even going to participate in this show?”
“The instruction booklet says 2-400 players, and the mounts are considered players as well since they form a Fantastic Duo with their rider, so up to 198 others.” Tymon hummed and patted my shoulder. “Let’s give the rest of the crew a good show, shall we?”
