The Games is a traveling event that sets up in a location somewhere in the Flanness for 5 weeks. The 1st month is to reconstruct the mobile fairgrounds and attract competitors and merchants. The last week is a series of contests broken up by level classifications, including combat and tests of class skills. The winners of the underclasses may challenge their counterparts in the higher classes for increased winnings but the upper class winners may choose to refuse though they are penalized for it. After the public spectacle of the games is over and the crowds go home, the dark underbelly of the operation is revealed as certain competitors are approached to participate in high stakes, anything goes, combat to the death.
