Frequently held at large gaming conventions, these will be large, highly-competitive tournaments with very attractive prizes on the line. Fight your way to the top and be crowned Prince of the City, and you’ll have the opportunity to be immortalized in the game as a unique vampire in a future product.

Ricals supports up to 4 players but this league will be 1 versus 1 to simplify setting up the games.
