Rapier Championship

It will be a Luck of the Draw Accolades Tournament. Fighters should bring all of the secondaries that they’re authorized to fight with. From an event planning perspective, we’ll need audience participation, so we’ll want to encourage the populace to be present and we’ll need to make sure their’s room for them on the sidelines.

The mask competition will consist of a masquerade parade during lunch. Contenders can either present themselves, have someone wear or carry their mask for presentation. Afterwards, the masks will be put on display for voting. The three categories will be “most historically accurate”, “most creative”, and “coronet’s choice”. Voting will be done by placing a corresponding colored bead for each populace vote in a basket with the mask. Awards will be given in closing court.

Join the Scribes of Dragon’s Mist while we compete to find the best Illuminators in the land. Notecard sized designs and basic supplies will be provided, but feel free to bring your own paint kit. There will be different art to paint for three categories: Youth, Novice and Advanced (older children are welcome to choose one of the other two categories if they want). Prizes for the winner of each category!
