– We are able to put pegs into the ground but no deeper than is necessary. We will also endeavour to make use of natural shade.
To all good gentles, greetings from Jean-Christophe le Saussier, Armoured Champion of Rowany.
It is tradition in these lands that at the great Yuletide gathering, disputes are settled.
To that end, a lyst field will be available on the morning of December 5th for those who may wish to settle any dispute where either party has chosen trial by combat.
All bouts are to be fought with matched weapons to 3 good blows.
Challenge matched weapons tournament – counted blows, limbs count as a good blow. There will be a pause to allow combatants to reset. Feel free to bring gauntlets, bucklers and weapons to share around.
NEW: Due to unforseen circumstances, slight alteration in weapon forms for tomorrow’s tournament.
Accepted forms for the formal challenge round are sword and buckler, long sword and single sword.
After the formal challenge round, personal choice is allowed. This will be announced at the time by the Marshal in Charge.
The format remains a challenge tournament with bouts to 3 telling blows (limb shots, if good, count as a telling blow)
Following up on the previous post by my counterpart, Rowany will also be holding the annual Yule Rapier Tourney on the 5th of December along with several Royal Guild of Defence prizes. This year’s tournament will showcase enthusiasm, chivalry and team work on the field. Further details will be made available regarding the location and schedule when confirmed.
Come along for a fine day of fighting, followed by a fabulous evening of feasting with friends! Looking forward to stabbing, I mean, seeing you all there!
