There is a consideration afoot in Olympus to introduce a new broad
character status, like Pacifism, where in a person may select 'Duellist'
and thereby ensure that the Duellist will only be able to fight
against other mortals (or their loyal steeds/creatures) when in
a mutual challenge or as part of a duel. They will, likewise, be
unable to be attacked save by those involved in mutual duel/challenge.
Selecting 'Duellist' status will last for the same length of time as
Pac ifism (one Avalon year) and will be irrevocable, thus impacting
on the duellists ability to spontaneously enter into combat (e. g. if
the home city suddenly comes under attack, or his/her friends are
unexpectedly ambushed etc).

brought live into Avalon as an option for a few experimental months,
after which time I will decide whether to include it as a permanent
