Heavy Tourney

Format will be round robin, 3 fight total. Fight one to be sword and board, with standard An Tir shield conventions in use. Fight 2 will be two handed weapon, not exceeding 7.5 feet in length, and according to ABC weight restrictions. Fight three will be short range weapons. Total length of weapons used must be less than 5 feet, and no weapons may exceed 3 feet in length. (so two 2.5 foot wapons may be used, or a 3 foot and a 2 foot).

Tournament may be modified according to number of fighters in attendance and site conditions.

If a fighter wins every one of their matches, they are the undisputed champion. Otherwise, the final round will be a best of 5 between first and second place. The first three bouts will be as per the tourney, with the last two bouts (if necessary) chosen by royal whim, by order of precedence. If royal whim can not be given, the event autocrat will select members of the populace to decide the type (sword and shield, two handed, or short) for the final two fights (if necessary).

Rapier Tourney:

The tourney format will depend greatly on the number of fighters. Only a few and we’ll do a bear pit, and a couple others. if there are many then it will be a double elim and a cadet(squire) style.

A&S Championship:
Competitors are expected to have their entries set up on display in the hall by noon. Populace judging will take place all day, and competition judges will have the opportunity to view and judge entries throughout the day without the competitor at their display (to allow entry in other championships). Final judging – if the judges want to speak to competitors about their entries – will occur between 5 and 6pm.
