|TALL WARRIORS OF THE EAST TAKE HEED!!!!!|
Their Majesties have summoned you to a contest of honor and skill at arms to vie for the right to be their champions at arms!
Of special note is the expectation of the crown that those who aspire to the throne of the East should also have the dedication to attend and compete in this contest. The chivalry of the kingdom has also been requested to take part in this contest of arms by their Majesties. With such a prestigious list in the making this event is shaping up to be one of the richest tourneys in years.
The format will provide the opportunity to display weapons depth as well as excellence of a combatant’s best form. The day will start with 4 tourneys; great weapon, two weapon, single sword and weapon and shield. The top 4 combatants from each of these tourneys will be given a berth in the final tourney. Each combatant may only earn one entry into the final tourney, it shall be double elimination with the first round being great weapon, the second round being single sword and the third round being two weapon. The remainder of the tourney will allow combatants to bring their best weapon form through the best of three final as the combatants will have shown weapons depth and will then be required to show their absolute best. As always the crown’s word is law and should they deem fit to adjust the format on the day of the tourney it is their prerogative. Train hard and be ready!
