How to Join/Fight

1. Sign up in this thread! Be sure to include the Dueling House you'd like to join.
2. Duel! For a win you will be rewarded 4 points to your house, for a tie 3 points, and for a loss 2 points. There are no restrictions to number of duels per night.
3. Challenge! Winning a challenge will reward your house 5 points (with a 3 point bonus if it's against an opposing house). Should you sadly be on the losing side of a challenge your house will still gain 3 points (with a 2 point bonus if your opponent was someone from an opposing house).

Open Houses = Open for all to join. The three original Dueling Houses ( Steel, Stone, and the Wilds ) will always be open for anyone to join.
Private Houses = Must be added by the Private House Team Captain.

Joined a Dueling House last cycle? You will still be listed below as a member of your current House.

Interested in leaving your Dueling House or want to joining another? Post your intent in this thread and you will be switched. Sadly your points will stay with the House you gained them for, but any new points will be rewarded to your new one of choice!

That's it! Have fun!
