    For a long time Liberation, mayor of the player-city Grimoire would hold weekly 1v1 dueling tournament atop his dark tower. On occasion when needed they were held in Stormhold as well and hosted by myself and friends.

    It's time we brought that back!

    We'll use the same rules we always used AND keep track of everyone's victories and loses in a larger league scoring system. Jebidiah has worked out a Google spreadsheet that we'll keep updated and available to the public here at a later date. (scoring system still being worked out and won't begin until after the 1st of year)

    So let's have a fight night this Friday night like we used to!

    I'd like to ask that people stable their horses rather than park them in the corner. There's a stablemaster just through the event gate in the courtyard. This is to help cut down on lag for competitors.

    Some fights are just more fun to watch than others. (templates etc) This one was amazing. Here we have U LiNt LiCkEr and amfeKk giong at it in one of the most entertaining fights of the night. Wild swings of health on both sides, dramatic moments and many close calls!
