Unbelted Tournament

Saturday, January 19, 2012

The Barons of Gyldenholt invite you to join them in celebrating the skill, valor, and the honor of the Unbelted Armored Combat Fighters of Caid.

Combat will be a single elimination style tournament. A second life may be gained with submission of a Arts and Sciences entry or a period bardic piece. Entries will be on display for the Populace to enjoy in a static display. After submission Fighters will be given a token to give to the list officer, redeeming their second life.

There will also be a “Most Well Rounded Fighter of the Day” competition for fighters that wish to participate. Fighters are asked to participate in each of the days events (A&S, Bardic, Chivalry, and the Heraldry & Viking Quiz). Sign up at the List table.

Other Contests of the Day:
*The Arts and Sciences theme of the day is “Viking Invasion.” There will be three different contests (Beginner, Apprentice, and People’s Choice.) All entries will be displayed for the public.
*Bardic Judges await to hear your War Songs, Poems, and Prose throughout the day. Again, extra points will be given for period style and documentation.
*The Populace will be given the opportunity to learn embroidery based on a pattern provided by the Barony. There will be a beginner and advanced category and entries will be judged. Supplies will be provided by the Barony.
*There will be a quiz on Viking culture. On the back of the quiz will be an opportunity to draw your heraldry or of something close to you (Consort, Household, Barony, Etc.) and the describe it in proper terms.
