It is a closed tournament with pre-selected fighters.  The fighters are chosen from a series of mini events leading up to the main event for tryouts.  You must be committed to showing up to the actual event in order to compete though you do not need to be available for the entire duration.  If you are interested in being part of the tournament or as the support (waiters, entertainment, etc) please contact Evaleigh De’loncre in game.


This is a spectacle tournament (think Pro Wrestling).  It will be full of gimmicks and upsets to make it amusing to watch.  While a winner may be "announced" it's more for the show than the victory.

Q. Why do I have to try out?


A. This is a spectator event demonstrating fighters.  While it is being advertised as a tournament of champions in truth it is closer to WWE.  There will be gimmicked fighting events and a lot of boasting between characters prior to the actual match.  To save a lot of headache, most of the fine details are being hashed out at the mini-events leading up to the main event.



Q. Trials by Combat--What do you mean?

No magic or alchemy is allowed.  Only pure physical fighting.  In addition there will be several trials the fighters may be subjected to which includes but is not limited to


-- Unarmed combat (taking their weapons away)

-- Player vs Machine (special fighting mammets are being created)

-- Escalating combat (if the fight isn't going fast enough additional elements will be added such as allowing the spectators to throw vegetables at the fighters)


Q. How is the victor being decided?


A. The following categories for the tournament have been decided


- Best Heavy Fighter (Plate, armor wearers)

- Best Lightweight Fighter (Leather etc)

- Fan Favorite (Audience selected)

- Best Showmanship (i.e. best smack talker)
