... is very scientifical.
Everyone of magical disposition, arcane and divine, are invited to attend a tournament to be conducted in Sanardu.
The brackets will be decided at the pleasure of the emperor, who will also be overseeing the tournament and deciding the winners if the results are inconclusive (I'm going to be DMing all of the fights OOC and not participating). The competition will be held in an arena constructed to purpose on the outskirts of Sanardu in the midst of the ruins. Should there be a massive interest in the competition, the tournament shall lead off in battles of three versus three. If there are not many participants, it shall instead be conducted in the form of one on one duels with the winner moving onto the next bracket.
Late arrivals are welcome. If anyone who is not of magical disposition elects to participate in the fighting, they are welcome, but the implication is they are not expected to last long. With that said, a staff of physicians will be on hand to heal anyone terribly injured.
The prize for winning shall be, primarily, the honor of being the strongest mage in the land. The recognized title for being the greatest amongst elites, "The Axex" bestowed upon them. Additionally, they shall have earned a knighthood courtesy of the emperor, and a prize of fifty thousand Radiants to be paid in full upon victory.
