Tournament at Monday Fighter Practice, 9/5/16

This coming Monday night 9/5/16 at Rowany Fighter Practice, there will be held a Valhalla* tournament.
It will start at 7:30. Bring your kit and your authorisation card, but don’t bring weapons of mass destruction.

* In a Valhalla tournament, all fighters begin on the field. They fight in single combat, with defeated fighters leaving the field. If the person who defeated you is defeated in combat, you return to the field. Winner is the last fighter on the field (either by defeating each fighter in the list consecutively, or by endurance).
