First example:

"If the player is unfortunate enough to be challenged, the duelist will present them with two flintlock pistols. When the player has chosen their weapon, a countdown will start. At the sound of a bell, the duelist and player will be permitted to shoot each other."

Second example:

"If the player is unfortunate enough to be challenged, the duelist presents them with two flintlock pistols. When the player has chosen their weapon, a countdown starts. At the sound of a bell, the duelist and player are permitted to shoot each other."

What are the differences in usage, context, and overall meaning in these examples?

Furthermore, can the word "will" be applied/removed freely in topically connected sentences without causing error or keeping the same meaning?

Example:

"If the player is unfortunate enough to be challenged, the duelist will present them with two flintlock pistols. When the player has chosen their weapon, a countdown starts."

Thank you kindly for any help.

    The present tense describes what normally happens in these circumstances. The future tense (will present) describes what is scheduled to happen. They are two different ways of explaining the procedure, and you can't mix the tenses together. Oct 14 at 7:40
