Blood Trials

In order to make the trials a test of skill and to have a level playing field for all concerned the following rules will apply.

1. All trials must be attended by an Acting Oath Master. Witnesses may also attend.

2. Opponents will be either "Hunter" or "Hunted". Roles to be chosen randomly.

3. The hunter declares mech category. Either Light, medium, heavy or assault.

4. The defender declares mech type. Clan, IS or trial. The hunter may finally declare that trial mechs will be used.

5. The map will be mutually agreed upon or randomly generated if agreement cannot be reached.

6. The battlefield (grid location) will be agreed upon by the combatants within 60 seconds of dropping. Should agreement not be reached the Acting Oath Master will make the decision.

7. Engagements begin at 1000m with fire on sight or at Zellbrigen distance. Engagement type to be chosen by the hunted. If Zellbrigen is selected combatants will begin by standing back to back. They will then move away from one another in a straight line until the Acting Oath-Master declares "Engage!", at which time combat may begin.

8. Should a contestant leave the area of combat, to be determined by the Acting Oath Master, they will be given 10 seconds to return and upon failing to do so will forfeit the trial.

9. All modules are allowed EXCEPT artillery and airstrike.

10. No deliberate legging of opponent's mechs and no deliberate head-shots. The Acting Oath-Master will make any such determinations. Violation will result in disqualification.

11. Should a player disconnect during combat they will be given the time allotted by the game to reconnect. Failure to reconnect results in forfeiture of the match.

12. Any disputes will be resolved by the Elected Oath Master.
