Combat

Sir Gaheris Vitruvious Grachhus Memorial Tourney:

Armored combatants, be ye belted, unbelted, master, or knight come forth and fight in honor of one of our fallen knights. In honor of Sir Gaheris Vitruvious Grachhus a special tournament will be held to test both skill at arms and endurance of the combatants. You will be asked to take up both sword and a buckler (which will be provided) and face one another in the pit. You are challenged to take and hold the pit as long as you can against all other challengers. Once you can no longer hold the pit you will return to the line and await your next opportunity.  However, if you step out of line then you have withdrawn from the tournament as this is also a trial of endurance. For a period of not less than 30 minutes this tournament will continue until a victor can be determined. So come forth and show honor to the memory of one of the kingdom’s beloved knights.

Tournament rules:

Sword and buckler (one will be provided if you do not own one)

30 min bear-pit

Most wins, wins the tournament

Step out of line and you are no longer allowed to compete in the tournament but your wins to that point still count.

Rapier Champion Tournament:

Gather around ye masters and mistresses of blades and stand for your opportunity to accept a challenge of skill at arms. For on this day a special challenge has been issued to all who would bring swords, shields, cloaks, and more to this fight.

 

Could it be that this tournament is one of style versus style? Indeed it is but with a twist. You may bring forth your best style for as long as you may win with it. However when defeated you must change your style to another and use that until you are defeated and continue in this fashion until you are eliminated. The eliminations are tiered however to give all equal footing based on their skill. Non scarfed  shall be given 5 eliminations, therefore proving them multiple opportunities to use all 5 styles, White scarves and knights are to be given 3 eliminations, and the Masters of Defence a scant 2 eliminations based on their demonstrated skill at arms. 

 

In addition, if you are wounded in the leg you may rise up upon them but you may not walk on the injured limb. Should you and your adversary achieve a simultaneous kill both will count as having won the bout and continue in the competition without elimination. If needed, the Baroness my call upon the awesome by-fighter. These fights are destructive and a loss will count as an elimination.

 

At last, when the day has grown long, the remaining 2 or 3 participants will face one another in a battle of 5 forms. With each form changing every round.
