Greet the day, one and all.
The time draws near when two great and wondrous events will take place in the Southern Outlands. Crown Tournament and the Investiture of the next Baron and Baroness of the Citadel.
The first of course is the finding of an Heir for Their Royal Majesties, Hrorek and Caoilfhionn, mighty King and graceful Queen of the Outlands.
Their Majesties have decreed that all entrants make their way to the Barony of the Citadel of the Southern Pass to test their strength of arms in the contest to discover the Royal heirs. The tournament will begin at the pleasure of the Crown, or close to 10:00 am.
The list shall be fought in the following style: Best 2 of 3, double elimination using 7 weapons styles.
These styles being:
Before each round a weapon style will be chosen at random. All the fighters will use that specific style for that specific round. After that round has been completed, that style will be eliminated and will not be drawn again. The bye-fights will be non destructive and will be fought by a person of the Crown’s choice.
- 6’ spear
- Weapon & shield
- Axe, 5’ and under
- Single sword
- Great sword
- Weapon of choice
The tourney site is dry without even the slightest chance of wetness in the form of any type of alcohol. The feast hall is wet ONLY from the hours of 5 – 9 pm. As with all things, the schedule of events is purely at the discretion of the Crown.
The second but no less important event is the Investiture at evening Court of the new Baron and Baroness of the Citadel of the Southern Pass. Our beloved Baron and Baroness, Roger and Constance, request the presence of one and all Outlanders to join with them in the celebration and Investiture of their successors.
Please note: The tables we will be using will be round and sit 8. Know that only enclosed candles and those which in no way can drip wax upon the fine linen tablecloths of our hosts are allowed. Be forewarned that the autocrats will be most vigilant about this.
You may bring your own libations into the hall between 5 and 9 pm OR you may partake of a full cash bar in the hall which will also be available for sodas. The choice is yours.
The site has showers for the gentlemen if they should choose to utilize them.
