Bladesport

December 20, 2006

The most popular entertainment on Aideena, the gladiatorial Bladesport Games glorify individual and team expertise with blunted swords and sword-like weapon.

In ancient times, competitions were played to the death. Such games are outlawed but practiced illegally in underground gambling tournaments.

The sport is officially organized under the sponsorship of Houses or families in Houses. Such sponsorships maintain stables of players who compete for the honor of a Matron or Matriarch. Bladesport developed from a form of swordsplay-martial arts originated by the Knights Templar.

Houses or families may chose to settle contractual disputes using Bladesport competition rather than the Faith courts system.
