SITE CLOSES

 

 

 

 



v
Heavy
Battles:  Proposed
a 4 stage push battle.



                 For
those that don’t know, a push battle works like this: The
winner



                  
of the first battle proceeds to be the attacker in the
second, if



                  
they win we all move on to the third battle, and if not it
all takes



                  
a step back to the first scenario.  The war is won
when one side



                  
eventually wins the last scenario.  If every battle is
won by the



                  
same side consecutively, it can go very fast, or it can
bounce



                  
between the first and second battles and last for
hours.



             
First battle would be a field battle with archery.
(Shittimwoode)


              Second
battle would be a bridge battle without archery.
(Crossing


                  
into
losing
barony, while ignoring Midhaven’s presence…)

                         Third
battle would be a wall battle.  Two gates through the
wall,
                             
fighting over it, but archery can only go through the
gates.
 
                             
Not terribly realistic, but helps separate it from a bridge
battle. 
                            
(Busting into defenders fort)
.
                        
Fourth battle would see the defending barony holding the
keep, lost
                             when
the royal or their representative is killed. No
archery. 

                            
(classic game of kill the Baron)

also have two fighting scenarios including combat archery, and
a separate battle

Brynmor has offered to organize and


                         
run
something like

a box tourney on a large
scale.


 



v

SATURDAY; traditional competitions


                     
SUNDAY: Hunt for “The Holy Grail”.


 


 



v
Bardic
Championship:  
The Bunny Bard will be chosen in a
tournament style.

                                     Depending
on how many enter, it will either be a double elimination or
a single elimination.

 

                                    
There will be a panel of three judges to declare the winner
of each round. Winner of each

                                           
round
will be determined by how close
contestant stays to the theme, general
impression

                                           
and
entertainment value,
and by audience appeal. (ie, if the audience loves you
,

                                           
but I hate you, you

can still
win!)

 

                                    
You will be allowed to challenge your fellow bards in the
first round, but will be paired
up

      
                                    
thereafter,
just like crown
tourney.

 

                                    
The first two rounds will have the themes already decided and
you can prepare for them.

                                           
The first round will be:     Broken
heart
                             The
second Round will be:     Revenge

                        
Remember that any of the following

subjects may be chosen in
the

                         following
rounds, so having a good repertoire is key to this
tournament.

                        
Each round before, the next round will be chosen from the
list of possibilities

                        
that will be drawn from a hat. Thus I wont have the stigma of
being “mean” and

                        
being biased for or against any particular Bard!

                        
Don’t forget that you will be timed,5 minutes max for each
entry. so it

                         would
be a good idea to practice your choices to make sure they are
not over long,

                        
we don’t want to have to cut you off, but I am ruthless and I
will do it!

                        
I personally love this style of competition because it is all
about repertoire,

                        
versatility, and lots and lots of variety!

                        
Hope to see many people going out for this!

                            
Regards,

                            
Baroness Anastasia Alexandrovna Andreeva (OL)
                            
Principality of Tir Righ A&S Champion
                            
Barony of Aquaterra A&S Champion

 

                                            
The rounds there after will be any from the following
list:

 

                                                        
Hunting, love, honor, defeat, victory, ghosts, death, dark,
King, Tournament,

                                                 
castle, journey,

Heaven, Hell, Horse, Juggler, thief,
Earth, Water, Fire, Wind,

                                                 
All four elements together,

Moon and stars,  Poet, clergy man,
maiden, witch,

                                                 
soldier, peasant, nobleman,
blacksmith.

 

                                     
You will not know
until that round what theme will be chosen. This is to
inspire you

                                           
to build a repertoire. If you choose to do something that has
nothing to do with

                                           
the theme you will automatically not make it to the next
round. If we are not

                                           
sure if you have covered the theme we may ask you to explain
yourself, giving

                                           
you a chance to convince us that you should not be
eliminated. Winner will be

                                            by
process of elimination, the last one standing is the
winner.

 

                                      You
can enter a story, song, poem, dance, juggling, whatever will
follow the theme.

 

                                     
There is a 5 minute limit for each performance and a timer
will be at the judges
table.

                                            
You WILL be cut off if you go over. We don’t have all
night.

 

                                     
The winner will be announced and a good time will be had by
all, and those
not

                                         
drinking
at the time
can
