Acolytes of War

To celebrate the true revival of the guild and to welcome its newest champion, the Warrior's Guild is hosting a tournament! Warriors, knights, berserkers and spell-blades are all welcome to join the tournament. As befits the Warrior's Guild, this is a melee-focused tournament. It is expected that all duelists will steer clear of magic. There will be more details listed below. Be warned, however, that casting magic in any fashion is potential grounds for disqualification. Please come prepared to duel in the physical style!


Rules and Details

  • Tournament will be single elimination rounds.
  • In regards to the no magic rule: The sole exception is the option for characters possessing the ability to enchant their weapons. Simple elemental enchantments -- ie, coating one's sword in a sort of fiery or icy property -- is acceptable. Using one's sword to shoot forth a pillar of flame, however, is not acceptable.
  • No entry fee required.
  • The duel dates and times will be announced days prior to allow duelists and watchers to prepare. Any scheduling issues need to be sorted before the day of the duel, and no-shows will be DQ'd while a possible Back-up Entrant takes their place.
  • Duels will be the traditional 3 rounds and final defense, with either 10 or 15 minute rounds as agreed by duelists.
  • All duels will be posted on the Wiki, please record and send your duels to Hildegarde or Lionel if she or he is not present for it.
  • Duelists will be required to find their judges on time for the duel, so once you have agreed on a date with your partner, it is advised that you begin to search for judges. NB, it is important that you and your opponent agree on judges. If you cannot agree on your judges, please inform Hildegarde or Lionel ASAP. If none are available that you can agree on, it is suggested to begin the duel, record all posting times, and send it to judges afterwards. Hildegarde or Lionel intends to be available during each duel and is willing to judge. For additional tested and trusted judges, see Judges List or Rheven's Judge List.
  • Duelists are allowed to add further stakes to their duels if they so desire. If no additional stakes are agreed upon, auto-hit round to the winner is the default stakes.
  • Guests may organise betting pools if they so desire.
  • RP from and within the audience is permitted and encouraged! It goes without saying, of course, that the audience should not interact with the duelists for the sake of fairness.
