This is a game where 2-6 people are dueling it out in fencing matches.
You have poise points which keep track of how "good looking" a character is. When you lose all of your poise points, and are a staggering mess, you can be stuck with a sword for the final blow and be killed.
There are also weapons and items which can be played to affect the game in different ways. Enjoy the game and have fun now!
