Within no more than a few minutes' worth of time, flyers are spread throughout Cellsvich, its forest, the arena, Dormeho, the goblin tunnels, the burnt down Mallus forest and the jammer cave for all to see, though there's no guarantee that all of them will survive.
Your friendly neighborhood Felidae, Colby Lopiccorby, also known as the Madcap Felidae, the soon-to-be King of Swordsmen, the one who runs into a fight to the death on his third fight ever after returning to Sigrogana, the one who spends most of his time drinking, fighting, admiring swords/swords(wo)men, the one with a sword fetish, is hosting a tournament!
Only Swordsmen (yes, swordswomen too, but swordspeople are vastly referred to as swordsem) are allowed -- swordsmen of -any- kind, as illegitimate as your type of swordsmanship may sound! -- Except swordsmen who are quite literally trained to hard-counter other swordsmen and can't actually do much else, in which case that's cheating (looking at you, sword-wielding Dullahans who may as well be used as walls for Cellsvich because anyone who tries to hurt them will end up breaking even their divine weapon.)
In this tournament, Colby himself will participate because he hates just watching, but if he wins, 2nd place will get 25k Murai instead of 50k and that's it.
No, you can't simply get a sword and not use it in the slightest and then proceed to claim that it's your style of swordsmanship.
This is a one-versus-one tournament that will happen on 18th of May (Saturday) at 2PM EST. The prize is 50k murai and you'll be considered the best swordsman ever! At least in Colby's book. And you get bragging rights. Ain't it great?
Mind that you aren't allowed to inflict serious injuries. Also, potions (no, you can't stack PR potions) and other similar stuff (e.g. throat-openers) also aren't allowed. You also can't drug yourself to become stronger prior to the fight, thank you very much (this excludes Vampires and their blood-related powers or other similar individuals who may need to prepare prior to their fight or else they can't fight at their fullest).
If you want to sign-up, just write down your name, age, alias and race, and send it to Colby. (ooc: just write your stuff in a pastebin and DM me the details).
Failure to appear within ten minutes after your fight is supposed to begin will result in auto-loss and disqualification. Of course, brackets, location of the tournament (definitely on Sigrogana) and whatnot will be decided as more people sign-up, and you'll be given the details shortly before the tournament begins (about one OOC day prior).
Sign-ups close on 17th of May (Friday). --
