He has to devise a contest because he needs to find a wife
Arriman has to divise a contest because he is tired of being a black wizard and wants someone to take over for him. He went to a very accurate gypsy and she tells him that a great and powerful wizard will come and take over. The great and powerful wizard does not come though. So he decides to divise a contest between twelve Todcaster witches. He wants a wife to have a baby so when his baby grows up he will take over from Arriman. The rules of the contest are to do the most horrifying, most blackest, most terrifying trick you can do. Each witch picked a number out of a hat and what ever number they pulled would be the place and day that they would do their trick.
The wizard Arrimen is tired of working! The problem is, he would despise another wizard taking over so he devises a competition to find a valid wife. That way, the wife can have a child and the child can take over! So that the wizard who takes over is still in his bloodstream. But one question remains: Which Witch?
