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. When a lady is participating in a contest the spells cast must be non-combative, but rather should be displays of skill and control appropriate for the presence of and use by a lady of breeding. Ladies are encouraged to use spells of ornamental or practical purpose suitable for their gender. Gentlemen competing against ladies will be provided a practice dummy to cast spells on.

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. Matches will not be revived under any circumstances so that one match does not hold up the entire tournament.
  6. 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.
Note: Adults and students will be participating in separate competitions. The student competition will be held in the Great Hall, and the adult competition will be held at the High Street Ballroom the same day.


To sign up your student, use this form:
CODE
[b]Name:[/b]
[b]Year:[/b]


To sign up your adult, use this form:
CODE
[b]Name:[/b]
[b]Age:[/b]

[b]Skill:[/b] (general magical skill; choose poor, average, or good)

FOUR QUESTIONS:
    1. Is this like... tournament-style? As in multiple dules per character?

    2. Any chance of getting a list of how old you would likely be to know/use certain spells, so that we don't have to prance off to the staff all the time?

    3. Odira isn't sure what exactly girls get to do D:

    4. For stamp purposes - if a contestent is disqualified for inactivity, would that count as "completed" on the victor's part?

  1. Yes!
  2. We could start an official thread at some point where people can ask about spells where everything will be kept together, but I don't foresee an actual list being compiled all at once. It can be a board-wide effort.
  3. Color changing, conjuring flowers or birds, transfiguration of the useful/ornamental sort, etc. Pretty much she gets to show off what a wonderful magical lady she is because the dueling commission is obviously sexist.
  4. Unfortunately no, but it does move you on to the next round.

Note: Zeke is a girl who is posing as a boy and has been doing so since she was about nine. Hogwarts believes she is male and it is unlikely your character believes differently. To reflect this I will be purposely be using male and female pronouns with likely more male ones.

Are there any IC incentives for competing? Prizes, money...? Or just the prestige?
