Duels of Cartisora

You enter the sandy pit of Cartisora with confidence.  Your opponent faces you at the far side of the fighting field, weapon brandished, brow furrowed.  Looks like a worthy opponent, but you don’t let that show. Instead you draw your weapon and charge your enemy, with an intimidating battle cry.

Only one of you will leave this arena alive.
