Notices are pinned on boards in various inns around the continent, inviting locals to come and join the festivities of the eighth quarterly Celestial Tournament. A faded tracing of Niuzao accompanies the text written within.
“Warm greetings to all, the Celestial Circle would like to invite all locals to join them at the Shrine of Fellowship in the jade forest for four days starting on 07/07 of festivities where we are holding our eighth quarterly tournament to find out which Celestial most favors us now. A champion of Niuzao took the title last time, will they be able to hold it? Come along to find out! Maybe it will be you who will be crowned champion? There will be fights to watch, food and drink to be had, other games and festivities! Hope to see you there!
~Sujee Springbreeze of the Celestial Circle”

The IC rules are simple, strike your opponent three times to win, force of blow does not matter, only that the opponents defences are broken past. Blunted weapons and no magic. - A champion of the melee will be crowned after the finals on sunday.
