Piffle. Whose needs does Steppes Warlord serve? To whom is it relevant?
a) the fighters in the list
b) those who come to watch and enjoy the lists
c) all of the above
It's "c)", of course. And without Warlord having to do a *thing* to
"cater" to the rest of the kingdom -- just provide a spectacular
venue for fighting.

Actually, I think that such an event, as discussed/proposed thus far,
*does* have appeal to the non bards/brewers/cooks. Anyone with a
grain of intellect should be able to figure out that they'd have a
wonderful time just *being* at such an event. Especially if the
organizers tell them so in the event advertising. Repeatedly. :-)

As would many others, I suspect. :-)
