The Summit of Kings – Battle for the Supreme Jalen | A Swordsfall Adventure
The Summit of Kings is a 2 – 4 player one-shot set in the Swordsfall universe. It can be played in several different ways. You can play it as a fun one-shot with your group, or an amusing detour for the Jalen in your Swordsfall group. Or, with a bit of homebrewing, an adventure in your system of choice. Either way, the goal is to have a unique experience of a classic rap battle of your table.
The Summit Of Kings
Once a year there is a special, one of a kind tournament held on the beautiful coast of The Isle. The Summit of Kings. A yearly battle where the top Jalens from around the world are invited to find out who is the best in straight oratorial combat. The only way to get into the Summit is through a special invite. Regardless of how well you place at The Summit, just the act of receiving an invite is considered a prestigious honor. The worldwide Jalen organization, The Sixteen, keep track of the millions of wordsages around Tikor. When the list goes out, the people listen. So, after spending months powering through the tales, speeches, and recordings of current Jalens, the Hot List is formed. The tournament set.
Over 10,000 people flock to the private beach, Boogie Cove, and the town that surrounds it, South Onyx, to witness the awesome battle. The partially secluded vista is the perfect backdrop for the lyrical battle. Owned by the reclusive Grandmaster Jalen, Flayshe, it serves as a gorgeous backdrop for the lyrical tournament.
Who Will Be Crowned The Wordsmith?
The rules are simple. One on One, Jalen vs Jalen, Winner Takes All. Each Jalen takes there turn delivering the most crowd thrilling rap possible while the other patiently watches, careful to maintain a neutral face. They each vie for the roar of the crowd and the growing look of defeat on their foes face. Each summit battle lasts for three rounds with the winner being the best out of two.
Jalens, Voice of the People
Unlike most professions, Jalens don’t have a single profound origin. Much debate still rages over where the first Jalen came from and who they were. All anyone seems to know for sure is that the profession came to rise out of necessity. Out of a need for the average person to have power and station over their life. Much like Griot are the voices of history, Jalens are the voices of the people. Where there are people, especially those in need, the Power of Word seems to come to life in someone. While it’s possible to train and become a Jalen, most of them, especially the most powerful, seem to just be born for it.
