If you need signatures for MIT paperwork, bring yourself, your form, and I will put you to work! This is an easy way to get a bunch of them, including the “running an event” one. Marshaling is not hard, doesn’t take much time, and is the easiest way to give back to the Kingdom and Society.
This tourney will determine the champion of the Shire of Talonval for the next year. It will be either a double elim tourney (all conventions used, bring your best game), or a round robin, based on turnout. For the finals, each combatant will fight our current Champion. The champion is expected to fight with Talonval when it musters. Winner receives a Talonval tabard, tourney shield and war board, to be used during their term as Champion. The Shire Champion from the previous year will run this tournament.
3rd Annual Talonval Open
Need to get your game ready for Crown, or wondered what it was like? Then this is for you! This will be a double elimination tree tournament. It will either be one bout per opponent or best 2/3 per opponent, based upon turnout.
Pairings initially decided by random draw.
The finals will be best 2/3, with weapon styles matched. In the finals, the person with the highest seniority picks weapons for bout 1, then the other person picks for round 2. Round 3, if needed, will be sword & shield.
No Face Thrusts!
No heater shield bigger than 32” in any dimension, or center grip larger than 30”.
No Single handed sword greater than 42” in length.
No pole weapons longer than 6’.
If the Crown desires, finals will be fought in court before Them and the assembled populace.(currently there is no Crown Presence scheduled for Siege of Talonavl, due to conflicts with Kingdom War Practices. this MAY change after Crown Tourney)
Regional War Practice
Balloon Fight- All particiapants will have Balloons taped to their Helm and chest. Battle will start as teams. As long as you have a balloon still intact, you are alive. If a balloon gets "knocked off, it may be stomped on. Last man standing wins the battle. Balloons must be blown up large enough that simply tucking your shield in will NOT protect them. (aprox. 6 inch diameter)
Timed team battles- This will be a twist on the three little pigs themes. Info TBA at Siege.
Capture point rez battle (if numbers and time allows)– This is like last year, if you were there. If not: In this timed battle, each side will have a keep to defend (both sides start in their keep), with their rez point behind it. Midway between each side will be two points (baileys) to capture. The side holding the most territory (keep (s) and bailey(s) at the end of the time, wins. The time for each battle will depend on how much time is left.
As always, adjustments may occur, based on time and participation.
