Word is presently spreading through Avalon City and many other cities all across the globe: the Tournament of the Gods is soon to begin.
The Tournament of the Gods is the greatest assembly of fighters from around the world, all of them seeking to compete for and then to claim one of the Belts of Heaven. These coveted belts, powerful magic items in themselves, are also symbols only to be worn by the greatest competitive battlers in the world.
There is little difference between armed and unarmed fighting in the eyes of the officials of the Tournament. Bring your best equipment, your most masterful styles of battle. Only the very best shall succeed and bring home the Belt of the Gods.
