Tournament Information

Rapier Championship –

Without giving away too much, fighters should plan on about 2 hours of fighting. With a championship round at the end. Fighters will be awarded points throughout, to be announced the day of the event.

Fighters will have the opportunity to be awarded extra points by Her Excellency. How, you wonder? This event is “Masque & Steele”. Fighters should bring a masque to wear during introductions for Her Excellency, Baroness Aesa to admire and score.

If you have questions regarding the tournament, please refer to Salvador Rodrigo de Granada.

Heavy Championship – Our current Baronial Champion, Hammar, will have a tourney that will be round robin with top two fighters in the Championship Round. Please bring multiple weapons! Good Luck fighters!

A&S Championship –
