Each year our
Barony, and those who choose to call this their home, hold a
celebration of the chills of winter departing and the coming
forth of life back upon our lands. During this time of
renewal we look upon the gifts of Arts and Sciences that have
sustained us though the short and dim days and choose the
champion that can gather their resources during the coming
light to once again sustain us when winter falls. We
also look for one who can defend our lands with their rapier
skills as the bountiful harvest of our lands and our people
begin to arrive.
There will be a
Rapier Tournament to choose our new Baronial Champion.
Here is the rough
guide on how the tournament will proceed. This may be altered
depending on how many choose to make challenge.
*This is a timed fight.
*All contestants will be given 3 ribbons to track their
*Contestants will obtain one ribbon from their opponent for a
win. When a contestant loses all 3 ribbons, they are done
from the tournament.
*All contestants will fight in a `bear pit’ style holding the
field until either they lose once, or obtain 3 wins.
*Starting order is established by O.P., with the lowest rank
*Upon winning a sixth ribbon, the contestant will lose the
ability to use a dagger. Upon winning a 12th ribbon, the
contestant will lose the use of any off hand object.
*The finals will be decided by time constraints, and
contestants with the most ribbons. The final round/s will be
fought in a style that the Baroness Emma and/or Princess
