Spring is in the air and it is that time of year again. The flora start to blossom, the fauna start to look for mates, and Lady Summer begins to plan her return. As the weather becomes warmer, the valiant fighters of Drachenwald leave their winter hibernation and take to the field. The air is full of the cheering of the spectators, the calls of the heralds, and the unmistakable sounds of the heavy fighters - "whack" as rattan strikes rattan, "thud" as a blow lands, and "ow" just before the blow is called good.
