Entering the arena: The combatant(s) will walk up to battles Battle Master and stop in front of him/her and Salute. The Battle Master will return the Salute. The combatant(s) will then walk over to the side that they are direct to, turn towards the VIP* and give a Royal Salutation. Once they give the Royal Salutation they will turn to the middle and wait for the other combatant(s) to complete this process. Once all combatants are in their respective positions they will turn to face each other and bow at roughly the same time. The Battle Master will ask if combatants are ready, once all are prepared to proceed, a count down from five will begin "5 4 3 2 1...". Once the count down has expired the Battle Master will say FIGHT and the combatants will be locked in glorious combat until one side stands victorious. After the fight: The loser(s) will limp off the field back through the entrance. The winner(s) will walk towards, and stop in front of the Battle Master ready to be announced victorious. After being announced as the winner(s) the combatant(s) will salute the VIP, then bow to the spectators and leave out the entrance. *Note: If there is no VIP (Game Dev) then skip that part. ___________________________________________________________ Anyone that wants to fill in the spots that become vacant once the tournament is full send me a PM or simply show up for the event.
