======================================================================

Quick Description: Mixed weapons (no spears)*, wounds retained, bearpit, 60-120 minutes with rest breaks as necessary.

Long description: This tournament is a bearpit-style tournament where the holder of the pit retains wounds from round to round, until defeated.

For fighters, participation in the tournament is "bought" by the presentation of the fighter's site token.

Before a fighter enters the pit, they will roll the Dice of Doom. The Dice will assign the fighter their fighting style for the duration of their time in the pit.

Fighters receive 1 point for every fight in the pit, and one additional point for every win. The pits reward those fighters who long for the heat of battle and hear the song of the sword!

* if a fighter is not authorised in the weapons style assigned them by the Dice of Doom, they will default to one weapon, with no shield.
