The Diamond Tournament

Background and Rules

The Diamond Tournament is the annual major fighting championship put on by the Diamond Dragon fighters’ guild. It will be 32 of the best fighters competing for honor, fame, and fortune. The top 8 places will get a cut of the gate, but 1st is guaranteed 150 gp and second gets 50 gp. 20 of the entrants are directly invited due to their notoriety, famed exploits, or placing in the 3 other yearly tournaments (The Ruby, The Emerald, and The Sapphire). The remaining 12 spots will be from an open-entry (5 sp) single-elimination tournament. Matches go to first blood or until one side yields. The finals and semifinals go until one side yields only. Magic is allowed, but it is primarily a combat competition and thus using magic to win may not get you too far. Healing will not be provided, except for severe emergency conditions like mortal wounds or crippling injury. There is a prize for fan favorite. The King is rumored to be attending all of the tournament this year.

The Qualifier tournament starts December 3rd. Each match goes until first blood or an opponent yields. Healing will not be provided, except for severe emergency conditions like mortal wounds or crippling injury.

In all tournaments, killing your opponent is forbidden and will get you expelled from the tournament. An inquiry may be opened to see if it was done in bad faith and try the combatant for murder. However, by entering the tournaments, you agree that you might be killed and neither the city nor the guild is responsible.

Generally, there are 4 matches per day until only 4 combatants remain, then it goes to 1 match per day. Thus, the Diamond Tournament will take 10 days. Entrance into the arena is 1 sp per day, and the finals raise the price to 5 sp. You can pay 10 sp to get access for the entire tournament (saving you 4 sp). In the days leading up, many combatants will be sparring in the training room or out in the arena hoping to gain some fans and build up a name for themselves. During The Qualifier tournament, daily entrance is the standard 1 sp per day.

Kada, a scarred female Kovar, is the Diamond Dragon’s arena master. She is in charge of running the tournaments.
