Inspections and Authorizations - 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM
Castle and Field Rez Battle - 11:15 AM to 12:00 Noon
Two 15-minute rez battles. One side will start inside the castle, the other in the open field. There will be two capture points demarked by a wall.
One point will be inside the castle, the other in the open field. Control of each point will be determined at the end of the battle.
“Control” means that one side has the point completely covered and uncontested. We will not be timing control. The side that controls both points at the end of the battle wins.
Holds will not stop the clock (Unless there is an injury, injury holds will stop the clock). All holds will be general.
Combat archery and thrown weapons will be allowed. Siege weapons too.
There will be no fighting over (or through) the castle walls. Arrows and thrown weapons must be fired in an arc as though the walls were 10 feet high.
If a point is contested when time is called, we will define a 9-foot diameter circle around the point. All soldiers within are alive, all without are dead. The living soldiers will then fight until only one side remains, no rez.
Unbelt Practice and Pickups – 12:00 Noon to 12:30 PM
Lunch Break – 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Field Battles - 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM
No crazy rules here. We’ll run five (or more) straight field battles.
First two – Projectiles weapons allowed; siege included.
Next Three – No Projectiles
If everyone’s having fun, and we’ve got time, we can keep running field battles with or without Projectiles.
Battle of Stamford Bridge 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Two, 30-minute, modified rez battles.
On side A, each soldier will have 2 resurrections.
Side B will have no resurrections until the 15-minute mark. At 15 minutes, “reinforcements will arrive.” All dead soldiers on Side B may rejoin the fight.
Side A – Get across the bridge, kill all of the enemy.
Side B – Do not let Side A across, kill all of them.
Holds will be general, and they will stop the clock.
No projectile weapons. No siege weapons either.
Bonus points to the crazy guy who tries to defend the bridge solo with a Dane axe!
I can use any and all volunteers. Meet up on the field at 09:00 to go over basic battle-plan for the day.
