Rules of the Bachelor Battles
*Ten Contestants will fight to the death for their choice of one prize. Mercy is discouraged.
*A single viewing of the bachelors will be provided. Only one contestant is permitted in the Cells at a time. Light sampling is allowed.
*Attacks and battles are forbidden in the halls or private chambers. Everywhere else is fair game.
*Anyone can kill a contestant, including friends, family, and outsourced labor.
*Battle loot belongs to the winner, to be disposed of as they see fit.
*Broken rules will result in the contestant being arrested and replaced.
The Fine Print
*A week before each episode, the contestants are required to run time trials to determine their rankings for the start of day one. The top time will receive the Network logo patch and an extra one million UD credits.
*Each contestant must submit to an interview a day.
*Once a contestant has entered, they cannot withdraw from the game.
*When Round Two is achieved, the remaining contestants will be given larger, private rooms in a more secure wing of the complex.
Stars & Guards
*Stars are given for each kill, for high popularity and by council decision.
*Each star gains the contestant one Network guard (in halls and private flats) and a fresh cache of food, weapons, and medical credits.
*Stars cannot be lost, but can be given away to protect someone else, such as visiting family.
*Round One (Days 1-3)
Battles are chosen by Luck of the Draw. One contestant is chosen to face three randomly drawn matches in a row. If they fail, the Network will choose who takes their place with a second Luck of the Draw. The survivor moves on with fresh credits and more sentries. No other battles are held during this time, but attacks and assassination attempts are encouraged.
*Round Two (Days 3-5)
There are two matches a day, chosen by the viewers, until seven total contestants are eliminated.
*Round Three (Day 6-7)
The three remaining contestants will confront a council-picked challenge, and the winner gets a set place in the first elimination match. The challenger will be chosen by the computer.
The winner and the remaining contestant will then star in the feature fight. This is the final match, though few episodes make it so far. Due to assassination attempts and mind games, most Bachelor Battles are over by Day six.
