Here are the propossed rapier tourney at Silver Wolf. (subject to
change depending on the numbers of rapier fighters that show up)
All rapier fighters are welcome to participate but only those local to
Borealis will become Champion.
I am planning to hold five single elim tourneys each one of the
disiplines of rapier (other than case). In other words it a London's
Master Tourney. You need to know your basics = open hand, dagger,
baton, shield and cloak.
The top three Borealis finishers in each tourney will recieve points.
1st = 5 points 2nd = 3 points 3rd = 1 point. The fighter with the
most points will win the championship. If there is a tie then we will
have quick best out of 5 to determine the champion. For the other
rapier fighters that participate, they will be having the same done for
them but they will be playing for a prize.
Rapier Champion of Borealis
The Silverwolf Heavy Championship Tourney will be a
60 min. Iron Cross to select a final group (depending
on list size) for a best two-of-three single
elimination final. All tourney legal combat styles are
allowed. The final group will be locals only but there
will be an open prize for the highest finisher in the
