    Dueling Tournament: April '87
    #1

    Official Dueling Contests
    1. All proper decorum must be observed, including bowing or curtsying to ones opponent at the open and close of the match.
    2. During a duel, there shall be no physical contact of any sort between contestants. Should one contestant require assistance, then the match will be stopped by the official.
    3. Excessive force must not be used. The purpose of the contest is to display strength and skill; it is not to injure or maim. Likewise, all spells used must be allowed under the law.
    4. Creativity is encouraged; a match that consists merely of stunning and disarming is not enjoyable for the audience.
    5. As of April 5th, 1886 women are allowed to duel as mens' equals. No more ornamental magic displays!
    6. Students duel separately from adults. During the summer months, the tournament is the only sanctioned use of underage magic.

    OOC Rules
    1. Matches will be moderated by a member of the staff. Follow instructions by the IC moderator regarding who is to post. After both participants have posted once, wait for the moderator to post again before continuing.
    2. Points will be given by the moderator based on an OOC modified dice roll. While commentary by the official is IC, the scoring is done in the fairest way possible.
    3. Do not state how your action will end, but rather what is intended. That way, when the point is determined then you can post the results of your actions in a way that fits with the scoring.
    4. If a participant does not post within three days, they will be disqualified and the other participant wins the match.
    5. Keep all spells age appropriate. A first year could not cast an Unforgivable (although that would get them disqualified anyway). If you are not sure if your character could cast a spell at their age, feel free to ask other members or the staff for opinions.
    6. Members may enter a maximum of 6 characters in the tournament, and no more than three to any one competition (student, leisure, or professional).
    Bonuses Etc.
    1. We include a bonus for character specialties. Your character may only specialize in one area, but does not need to specialize in any.
    2. Part-veela (¼ or ½) receive a bonus against the opposite sex. Please be sure to note this at signup.
    3. There is a roll to determine realistic IC effects  such as injury. No such outcomes will be severe except in cases with player consent or of extreme spells.
    4. Ties are decided based on IC judge bias (such as blood, gender, or class, or simply friendship).

    Note: Adults and students will be participating in separate competitions. Starting November 1886, there will be a new “professional” category added to the tournament for adults with ample dueling/combative experience through either work or hobby. This is in lieu of the bonus previously awarded to aurors and hit wizards, and is being implemented on a trial basis!

    [b]Bonus:[/b] (if your character is particularly good with ONE of the following: offence, defence, charms, transfiguration, conjuring)
    [b]Tie/Since:[/b] What is their involvement in dueling regularly (Pro dueler on the continent, auror, etc.), and how long have they been doing it?

    Signups close April 20th at 10:00pm EST.  Duels begin April 21st. IC the tournament lasts from April 21st to 23rd.

    NOTICE:
    When posting in your duel, please tag both your partner and your moderator. This way, no one will be overlooked! To tag, simply type @'Character Name'.

    Lou also worked as an Auror from 1874-1881 (plus typical Auror training before that), but "Charlie" did not and so wouldn't be qualified for the pro bracket. So do with that what you will. Sorry I'm such a pain =P
