Subj: Sect of Blades arena

The Sect of Blades has unveiled its arena!

Sect members who fight one another in the arena will adopt new shell
personas to preserve their anonymity - The Red Combatant and the Blue
Combatant. This essentially works by logging you out of your current
character, and into the shell character and transferring over necessary
parts of your character to let you still fight normally. This arena is
the first of its kind in Aetolia, and while we've taken all the steps we
could think of to preserve your anonymity, please bear in mind there may
be things we've overlooked.


The syntaxes involved are very simple:

SECT CHALLENGE
Issues a challenge to the Sect. If accepted, you will not be able to
issue another challenge for an hour.

SECT ACCEPT
Accepts an issued challenge. You can accept as many challenges at you
want.

Kills in the arena will earn you double the marks of valour, and deaths
will still only cost you 20! However, you will still suffer from the
same decreasing marks gain as duels outside the arena do.

Unlike a normal arena, you will lose experience upon dying, and your
curatives will still get used up.

If the fight should go on for longer than 20 minutes, both combatants
will receive the bloodlust affliction. While under the effects of
bloodlust, shields will fail to take hold on you.

Good luck!
