I demand battle!

I challenge @rjbprime to a duel, as the challenged, you decide the terms of the duel as long as they are in reason.

I'm currently on the road, til late Friday night, early Saturday morning. I do accept, but I'll have to have a couple of days to sort a proper response out.

Adventure League Season 8 rules with the following changes: level 20, standard point buy, feats allowed, free choice of non-flying race, gold appropriate for 20th level AL Character.

Best of three combat rounds.

These seem fair, do we regain expended items such as potions at the begining of each match or are they still one time uses? Also it will take me a bit of time to make my character since this week is just being shoved full of time consuming things I must do.

I was actually thinking of a three turn melee battle, hence the no flying thing. Sorta like in SAO when Kirito fought Kuradeel in a First Strike duel. Does that seem like a fair revision?

But a best of three combats seems fair. To the death, first strike or Half Health? If its First Strike or Half Health, then I can possibly spin this off into a campaign, mayhaps?

I never even. Thought of first striking for some reason, though doesn't that just mean whoever has the highest initiative wins (as a lvl 20 our to hits are so high that you need to really work to make your ac anything more than a minor inconvenience.) Something I thought of is how about we do 3 different rounds, one being first strike ,the other being half and the other being whole. (if the arena can afford to entice 2 lvl 20s to fight and doesn't have someone who can at least cast revivify or spare the dying on standby then I am going to have a word for their management.)
Also do you want to ban flying in general or just flying races as the AL rules already ban them but obtaining the ability to fly with a level 20 is not super difficult so the clarification is necessary.
Also I'm not sure where you are going with the campaign idea but I like the sound of it.

Ban flying in general.

With regards to the campaign, have these guys be an exhibition match at gladiatorial arena, then when we finish, cut to the newbs. So whoever survives, can be a mentor or some such. Thoughts?

I think regardless the results of the duel, each contest would survive since we're talking level 20s and neither they nor the arena itself would be willing to sacrifice such great sources of entertainment and at their level if the arena does not provide then they probably have arranged their resurrection by some means either a healer on standby or a clone spell prepared before hand.
The whole idea of noobs having to start out in that same arena sounds cool tho.
Finally do you agree to the, first strike, half health, and full health format?
Also the ban on flying is fine as it can be annoying to deal with.

I do agree to the first strike, half health, and full health format. And yeah, flying is a pain.

So let me ask now. The first strike format I'd basically whoever gets the first hit in wins? Right also afterward is it assumed that we are magically healed back to full?

Another question, how much prep time do our characters get, do we have zero time so that we can only cast things like mage armor on our turn or do we have a couple minute or even hours?

But nothing targeting the opponent before combat.
