The Wedding Tourney 8 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 2  
By Royal Decree, the Wedding Tourney will comprise the following events, challenges and prizes.

These events have been chosen by the King and Council to both celebrate this happy occasion and honour our guests from the Senatus Empire.

1. "In with two". Single combat in which each participant brings two items of their choice (usually weapons, shields or armour) to the field. These four items are then placed in a pool and the toss of a coin determines who gets first pick, the choice alternating between the two combatants until each has two items to use and the fight begins. Prize: a highly empowered or ensorcelled weapon of the victor's choice will be awarded by the King.

2. "Two on two". Teams of two combatants compete upon the field. Prize: Jovic West will personally forge a piece of armour of the very best quality for each member of the winning pair.

3. "Staves". An individual event in which each competitor, armed with an identical staff, seeks to knock their opponent from an elevated position. Prize: a ring of balance, which prevents its wearer from being tripped, knocked or shaken to the ground, will be awarded by Mathias Cooper.

4. "Javelin". An individual event in which each competitor has three opportunities to throw a javelin the furthest distance. Prize: Bracers that greatly enhance missile accuracy will be awarded by Praetor Amadeus.

5. "Marathon". A footrace over distance. Prize: highly enhanced teaching in a Guild, School or Craft of the winner's choice will be awarded by Carrus Lark.

6. "Joust". Teams of two, comprising a mount and rider, attempt to unseat the opposing team. Prize: 100 gests will be awarded to each successful team member by Vaughn Anders.

7. "Bardic Battle". Individuals compete for audience approval through the recitation of legends, tales and stirring accounts of the bravery of their fellows. Prize: True knowledge will be awarded to the victor by Duke Hanrow.

8. "Murandir's Got Talent". All persons are invited to demonstrate their hidden abilities and latent talent in any endeavour or undertaking that will entertain a discerning audience. Prize: A personal gift will be awarded by the Queen.

This looks exciting!

May I ask a question? Will there be the opportunity to swear to the King during the celebrations?

I would imagine so as there will be a fair number of individuals there able to perform the ceremony. Verrick will be there and he conducted a swearing in on our last mission. I think the King will probably be too busy to conduct it himself.

Although I will not be at the celebrations I hope to adventure with you again soon Orlando-san.

Bearing in mind the occasion and the company I would recommend avoiding anything too bawdy.

I have a query about the 'In with two' single combat. What will the results be if both parties fail to bring a weapon or only one weapon is brought in? Could be a very short fight (and not very honourable should ones opponent not get a weapon)

Just a thought,

Orlando.

Thank you Orlando.

As I understand the contest, a considerable part of the skill is deciding what to bring to the field, considering also what your opponent may choose to bring. Thus, the victor is not just the person with greatest skill at arms, particularly as rounds progress.

If only one weapon is brought to the field then the contest is automatically won by the person who picks this weapon (presumably the person who wins the coin toss), and no fight occurs. If no weapon is brought to the field then both persons are deemed to have lost and are removed.

Leitha,

The simple answer is:

* Be courteous to them even if they are rude to you.

You wouldn't want to spoil the King's Wedding, I'm sure.

Lux,
