Tournament Information

 Marshall-in-charge: Gunnarr Torfason
Greetings mighty hunters!
It is time for one of our great honor traditions, The Hunt! Sharpen your spears and ready your hounds because the creatures you will face in these woods aren’t fluffy bunnies. Be wary of the noble Stag whose great horns can pierce even the strongest of armor, dread the mighty Bear whose great strength will overpower the biggest man, but the one that strikes fear into all brave hunters is the Boar with its powerful tusks and bloodlust. This beast will not go down easily.
The heavy hunt will take place in the woods as in previous years however due to site changes, access to the hunting grounds will be different. This will be announced in court and there will be signs posted for fighters.
Rules and Scenarios:
The Hunters: Hunters will have a single life (a standard killing blow will kill you) due to the nature of the hunt and the location arms and legs will not be counted. Hunters will be armed with a spear or another thrust only weapon.
The Dogs: Dogs will have a single life (same rules for Hunters) they will have two daggers and can only point and bark during the fighting.
The Stag: Stags will have three lives which means three standard killing blows must be struck before the Stag will fall (the fighter will call out loud when stuck and will count down till he falls down dead). Stags will use two long swords.
The Bear: Bears will have four lives (same rules apply for all animals when acknowledging blows). Bears will use a two-handed great weapon.
The Boar: Boars have five lives (once again same rules as above) please note there will be no “boar rage” once the boar has been slain it’s dead. Boars will use two mass weapons.
When a beast is killed allow them to get up and retreat to the woods where a marshal will be located for them to rez, when hunters and dogs are killed, they will return to the edge of the woods to rez.

Classes Offered

Arts and Sciences Event Information!

There will be an Iron Needle competition. The theme of the items should include, display, or depict a hunt animal. Both youth and adult categories are encouraged to participate. Teams are also welcome to join, and extra points will be given if the item incorporates something found on site. Things found on site means from other camps, not from the site itself. Harming the site in any way is against site rules. Participants can bring outside materials, and items for the Iron Needle stash are welcome but not required for entry. Donations for the Iron Needle stash are appreciated.

For the Populace Largesse contest, please bring half a dozen items for one entry, and the winner will be chosen by Populace voting. The winner will have their pick from the submissions, and the display is due after morning court with the winner announced at evening court.

Additionally, on Saturday at 2pm there will be a class on period shoe construction hosted by Athelyna de Oldenfeld, the current Kingdom Arts and Sciences Champion. A $5 donation is requested for copies of the handout.

Let us know if you have any questions.
