Good Lord, I had no idea there was an actual backstory to it!

(from Wikipedia, which would never lie to me):

The name is derived from the German words Beil (axe) and Tod (death). The odd spelling reflects Goodman's idea of a future language similar to A Clockwork Orange's Nadsat in which English has been modified by the borrowing of foreign words [1]. Although the game may seem medieval, the backstory in the manual explains that the axe fighting is actually a future virtual reality game designed to reduce real violence.

The Clockwork Orange connection may also explain the terrible things done to lovely Ludwig van.
