Greetings fine wanderer of the web, and welcome to the home of the Dwarven Warriors Cup (DWC): a special annual Dutch Old School gathering.
The tournaments birthfather and host is Sir Erwin Demmer, an avid Dutch enchanter from the great city of Voorthuizen. The tournament is invite-only and rumour has it that the amount of lobbying required to get anywhere close to attaining such an invitation is - unfortunately - well beyond true madness. Or is it?.
Erwin makes sure he provides his guests an insouciant and awesome time through his endless hospitality. Which he takes as seriously as slinging his old cardboard, seemingly effortless and with maximum amount of joy.
The DWC follows strict rules regarding its cardpool: only limited coresets Alpha and Beta are allowed to be taken into battle. Therefore, you're guaranteed as much throwback as possible - outrivalled by Alpha40 only - and you'll end up in an era where only the mere basics apply. DWC honors the B n' R of our Swedish collegues; modern rules, as is accustomed, apply.
These are daunting times. The senior uppermanagement of the tournament has received whispers of upcoming riots. Due to personal threats, Sir Demmer was forced to take precautionary measures and neither he nor his family has left the 4000 residence without 2 bouncers (1 alpha, 1 beta Unsummon) at their side for six months now. That, combined with formal and forceful complains by a certain Mr. Edo H. – who wishes to remain anonymous – has lead Sir Demmer to have no other choice but to retire the trusted tradition of powered and unpowered pools.
Thus, unlike previous years, let it be known that henceforth:
The Wizards Council will be split up in powered and unpowered pools no longer.
Word on the street is that Demmers' official standpoint is: "With great power, comes great responsibility". This statement is yet to be confirmed.

As can be witnessed by watchful eyes, the selection of adventurous Wizards is strengthening and growing in numbers. The ancient art of spell slinging is gaining momentum as AB4K is further acknowledged as the only true path and righteous way to practice the fine arts of magic.
Yet don’t let this blind nor deceive one, as some apprentice’s intensions are foul and their spells false. Their uncontrollable hunger for power sometimes even lead them to manifest borders of a certain pale color, which we dare not utter here. They will be led astray and fall into darkness as powerful spells are not for the faint of heart. Only true Wizards prevail. Only the very wise will last.
After careful consideration of the oldest and wisest of the tribe, these are the Wizards that have been summoned to this year’s summit, and will be challenged to present their most flavorful yet potent mixture of otherwise long-forgotten spells. Lo and behold:

The Wall of Stone
These battles are hard-fought. No alliance can be built upon. Each sorcerer must harness everything within himself in the persuasion of victory. A second of ignorance leads to the ruination of one. Sacrifices must be made, all will mustered and the enemy be faced head-on.
