Exalted: Heroes of Creation
Great Garda Bird Memorial Tournament
Open only to those capable of wielding Essence and using supernatural martial arts. Primarily Dragon-blooded, although there is no restriction upon mortal practitioners with awakened Essence from joining the tournament.
Not so prestigious as the Greater League, the Lesser League is composed of purely mortal practitioners of mundane martial arts. Although not as grand as the magical displays people can witness in the Greater League, these events often seem to draw a lot more passion from the population. Audiences relate to these approachable everyday heroes and become attached as fans to their favourites in a way that's just not possible towards the intimidated Exalted beings of the Greater League. With vastly more participants in these events, they are used to space out the festivities and there is almost always one or more fights in this league occurring at any time during the tournament.
