"My lords and ladies,
And everyone else whose not of royal blood: Today, you’ll find yourselves equals!
This grandest of grand melees and its contest of strength, shan’t consider any difference by birthright, but rather a difference in strength, valor, and skill.
Yet this grand melee will also put your camaraderie on trial, hence it has been foretold, that the power of a unified force shall always prevail against the strife of the lone wolves. So gather your banners and call to arms your most trusted allies, so that the best alliance may emerge as the glorious winner of this tourney.
But beware: deserters shall be punished and will, therefore, be shorn of the privilege of participating in this tournament.
Fare thee well and may your sword be guided by dedication and mastery.
His majesties herald held in the highest esteem,
