The Grand Destiny Star Games is an annual competition held to determine the strongest wizard team in Destiny City.
An event held in Destiny City, where participating wizard teams compete for the title of being the strongest magic users in all of Destiny City. Additionally, the winning team gets a 3,000,000,000 Destins prize.
Grand Destiny Star Games is a famous Destiny City competition where students from various schools compete against the other seven Magic Universities in numerous athletic and combative events. During the week of the competition, Destiny City is packed with tourists and the students' parents. The city-wide sports meet is broadcast worldwide, with ratings comparable to even the Olympics. Because of this, it makes Grand Destiny Star Games an inherently viable political tool for Destiny City.
During this week, people are usually prohibited from entering school premises, in order to avoid outsiders from seeing the power development facilities unique to Destiny City schools. Sports grounds also tend to be heavily guarded in order to prevent people from stealing DNA maps of high level Jewels.
Participants are encouraged to use their abilities during the matches, which is why the high-class schools like Royal Magic Academy and Destiny Military Academy excel during it. In some cases where events are held in the general public, abilities past a certain threshold, specifically the A and S-Rank, are forbidden in case they harm people or property. These restrictions don't apply in non-combat matches where it is only team versus team. Schools are ranked according to their scores based on their wins and losses, and the highest one becomes the champion of the Grand Destiny Star Games. Each school divides its own students to a black and gold team, with the number of wins each colored team gets, the points earned would be added on to the school's score. Teams not affiliated with a school do not have this advantage of accumulating points.
Although it is a large-scale sporting event, not all the students would be bounded by the events all the time. They just need to follow the rule of reaching the area in the specific time, and any time other than that was free time for them. Schools are even allowed to set up stores to get some earnings like the management or home economics schools.
According to details in a pamphlet given to students, the main purpose of the festival is to observe large-scale interference between Jewels. The Grand Destiny Star Games is also used by people to evaluate the Jewel development program of each school, and thus affects the budget of each school receives.
