The Great Planar Tournament Rules

The Great Planar Tournament

A new sort of challenge is being concocted that will pit the minds of all the participants against each other. The Gauntlet, Lord of Tyranny, has decreed that all the souls on his plane will gather to do great battle against each other for his favor and the chance to escape their torments, and numberless masses have shown up at his keep to try and lay hands on their freedom once and for all. Can you earn the freedom of the brave few who have made it to the final rounds?

The Setup

Each participant will take the role of an entire team of combatants in The Gauntlet’s tournament, representing the brave few who have made it to the last rounds of his challenge. It will be up to you to decide the exact makeup of your party, utilizing a robust and extremely customizable point-buy system explained later. Then, each of the participants will be seeded and will do battle against other teams designed by your rivals. Not only will your tactical skills be put to the test, but your ingenuity and team-building skills will be tried as well.

The System

Each Team starts with 100 Points to purchase characters with. You may have a max of ten characters on your team, but you may have less. For every level you add to one of your characters, you must spend the amount of points listed below for each class.
