The word has gone out.
For the third time in twelve years, mysterious martial artist Master Jiakun is holding his now infamous international martial arts tournament. Taking place on a small private island of the coast of Africa, the doors are open for a select few promising young martial artists to prove themselves in one of the worlds most prestigious tournaments. The tourney is televised all across the Burn Legend world, promising fame and opportunity to even those who fail.
Like all such things, it attracts the Exalted. Legendary top-tier fighters from all across the world gather, whether it be for money, fame, vengeance, to prove their style's superiority or even for darker and more ulterior motives. The first two tournaments had contestants from all backgrounds. All styles are welcome there, even the darker arts of the Akuma and the Yamajin (indeed, some claim that not only does he tolerate such things, Jiakun encourages them).
This is where you come in. You have not entered the tournament. You have been invited. All of you are fighters with world-class potential. All you have to do is prove it.
