Challenges are supposed to be a very public way of two people having an

open duel to the death, often these can last for long periods of time and

take a lot out of the participants. One reason for it being public and open

is so that others don't unfairly interfere.

Over the years the challenge has changed in the eyes of many, a way to cause

greater losses to the hated opponent, a means to lure them from a safe area into

an ambush by many, or advanced knowledge that the combatants shall be exhausted

and short of supplies and therefore more vulnerable when the challenge comes to

a close.

It is my intention to put a stop to the eroding away of this great Avalonian

tradition. In future, those found guilty of using challenges OUTSIDE the spirit in

which they were meant shall be dealt with in such a way as to negate any advantage

they may have wished to gain, and then some.
