FRIDAY EVENING - time and location to be announced later.
Friday night the Barony of Sternfeld will host a torch light tourney. The theme for this tourney in honor of our King will be a double elimination Holmgang tourney. The prize for such mighty warrior will be a Hand Forged Dane ax made by the hands of the most talented Faydwynn Randve.
The format is as follows:
The ring will be a 12 ft circle, should you step out of the circle you have fallen off the edge of the world and it will be counted as a loss.
The tourney is has weapon and shield restrictions as follows:
Short spear and center grip round
Ax and center grip round
Two handed Dane ax
These are the only weapons allowed, there will be 2 extra shield and weapons available should you not have the equipment easily on hand.
This is a contest of skill and not a contest of who is the biggest. You will not be allowed to push your opponent out of the circle, if you can arrange it so they step out on their own, that is another thing, If you physically push your opponent from the circle the fight will reset and start again, do it 3 times and you forfeit the bout.
The finalists should have a boast prepared to deliver to the populace in attendance.
Viking / Heroic age kits are encouraged but not required.
We hope to see everyone there and ready to please the eye of Odin with the skill and daring. If there are any questions concerning the tourney or the format you may contact the host : Sgt Galen the Traveller @ 865-293-6352 (no calls after 9pm please) or via email at this link.
