17.7 MINIATURE BATTLES
Miniature battles are those fought using magical figurines. Once sculpted by an artist and enchanted by an enchanter, these figurines can be placed into a fighting ring, where they will fight to the "death." One can even place many figurines into one ring, creating a giant brawl that will last until only one is left standing. Figurines will gain "experience" with each battle won, and lose it with every battle lost. Figurines will also break, lose decay time, if they lose a battle but will become stronger, gain decay time, with each battle won and each "level" gained. To use a fighting ring, the syntax is as follows: COMBATRING PLACE <figurine>: Add a figurine to the combat COMBATRING REMOVE <figurine>: Remove a figurine from the combat COMBATRING INITIATE: Start the combat Rings can be built by an artisan anywhere furniture can be made. Miniatures can also be given things. This includes Sparkleberry, which needs to be packed by a skilled herbalist, or by FEEDing it minimeals, which need to be made by a chef.
