The Tournament of Deadly

The tournament of sins will encompass a great
many different contests and competitions with each affording points
of specific nature (i.e. Lust, Wrath, Envy, etc)

It is meant to be a diversified set of contests
to allow a final “Defender of the Deadly Sins”
champion. Be it a group or an individual, we will have a winner/s
with prizes for each contest as well as for the overall

When a competitor gains points during the event
they can decide to keep the points for themselves or donate them to
a group or household for the overall tournament. Donating points to
a group will definitely give a greater advantage for the final win
but there can be WAY more gloating if an individual wins the
overall tournament. (See definition of pride in dictionary for
example *grin*)

The competitions will be as

Rapier (Pride

Specialized rapier scenarios personifying
pride. Bring your best garb to show off and show everyone how much
better you are than your friends!

Bardic & Bawdy Bardic
Contests (Lust Points):

A normal bardic in the early evening with a
second bawdy phase for after hours will award Lust points for the
winner/s. You do not have to compete in both but if you do and you
win Lust points in each bardic you must choose which one you wish
to use as you can only carry points from (i.e. the bardic you
placed highest in would be assumed)

Siege Cooking & Brewing
Contests (Gluttony Points):

ANY and ALL dishes/drink of the same contestant
will be summed for their Gluttony total. So if the same person
submits three brews AND three dishes, they can win ALL places and
sum the total points. This way people who do not fight can still
have a chance and it is worthwhile to have fighters branch out into
other activities. Welcome to gluttony!

Archery (Envy

Novelty shoots embodying Envy will encompass
this contest.

Heavy Combat (Wrath

Wrath points can go to most furious fighter,
etc., etc.  Bring your armor and your battle

Tablero Tournament (Sloth

Winners of this classic SCA game will be
awarded Sloth points to donate to their group.

1 and 30 Tournament (Greed

This traditional card game will be the basis
for the contest of Greed. Get out your cards and practice before
the event!


Once all the contests are over all points may
be donated to your house, ship, etc. and totaled. The group with
the greatest total of points will be named “Defender of the
Deadly Sins” champion and awarded appropriate
