Basic Information

A battle between two people, often with codified rules about acceptable weapons and techniques.

Depending on the time and the setting, killing someone in a properly set up and executed duel may not be considered murder. Duelling usually refers to private combat, outside the scope of warfare but may be extended to any form of single combat, up to and including one between aircraft (hence the term "fighter duel"). Even non-combat contests may find themselves labelled a duel in some contexts.
