(Taken from the tournament ideas of Jonteman, TenebrisNemo, and kandra127. Also keeps me content until I am the officially named Saga Master and when I eventually get to run a Tournament of Champions.)
You have come here willingly but your exit will not be as easy. You have heard rumors of a distant land only accessed by a special magic. A fabled tournament is held here by one known only as the "Saga Master" and you want to win the tournament. After traveling to a location seemingly put into your mind by an unknown force, you are whisked away through the Blind Eternities to a town unknown to you. You figure out that you have arrived at the location of the tournament. This is your chance to prove your glory to the plane and bring it home with you!
Welcome to the Saga Master's Tournament and the plane of Bravaria! This is another tournament based saga where fighters will compete with the goal of achieving absolute victory over your opponents.
