Rapier Schedule

Saturday – Rapier

0900 Inspections/sign-in begin.

0901-1000 Apollo’s Challenge
Up with the sun? Want to start fighting early? As soon as you are inspected and signed in, you can begin fighting. Challenge anyone else who is also inspected and signed in. Report results to the list table. Fight as much as you want or as much as you can before Apollo reaches the next mark on the sundial. Winner determined by score. Win = 3 points, Double kill = 2 points, Loss = 1 point.

1030 Red Tower Rapier Champion Tourney
Straight Double-Elimination. Winner gets custody of the distinctive Red Tower cloak for a year, and the title Red Tower Rapier Champion.

1300 Immortals’ Challenge—Baron’s Prize Rapier Tournament
Double elimination tourney, but all combatants must first fight against Baron Lorenzo (or his designated champion), who may lose the bout, but is immortal. Losing to His Excellency will count as your first loss in the tourney.

1430 Armored/Rapier Team tournament—Gemini Challenge
Find an armored fighter to team up with. Each team consists of one armored fighter and one rapier fighter. (Masters of Defense, please do not team up with Knights. Please?)
Each round is 2-out-of-3, one bout on each field. If one team wins both bouts, their team advances.
If a third round is required to decide the match, all fighters take their respective fields, and “Lay on” is called on both fields simultaneously. The first person to defeat their opponent takes the round, and their team advances.
If a set of fighters double-kills in the third bout, they do not refight unless the other field is inconclusive.
If both field double kill or kills from opposite teams are considered simultaneous then the third round will be refought.

Rumor has it that the Bearer of the Iron Ring of Meridies will be present, and accepting challenges.

Also, because the rules say we can…
If both combatants in a bout are authorized and properly equipped for C&T, they may choose to fight under C&T rules and conventions.

Heavy Fighting schedule

Friday – Heavy Fighting

Wondering if you are going to make it to Red Tower Friday night? Wondering what you could possibly do that night? Well, here is the answer. All Hades is gonna break loose. Come to the Escape Hades Tournament. The only tournament where you start out dead.

Attacker(s) are a team of 1 or 2. They are have unlimited resurrections. Their score is their time. If there are two attackers the time is doubled. Low time wins.

They have to defeat Cerberus, which is three fighters tethered together in a limited area. These fighters will be armed with sword and buckler.

After defeating Cerberus the Attackers have to defeat Hades, who will be an extremely proficient fighter armed as they want to be. They can only engage Hades one fighter at a time. And since Hades is a god he will heal after each fight

Think you can escape the underworld?? You’ll have a Hades of a time”

Please come join us for this special torchlight tournament Friday night at Red Tower.
Armor inspection will begin at 9 PM.
The tourney will start between 9:30 and 10 PM.

Live Weapons Schedule

Saturday – Archery

8-9am: Inspection, Novelty Rules Review

9am-2pm(ish): Open Range for Novelty Shoots #1-11

1pm: Conner O’Dell’s Marshal Tourney (concurrent with the novelty shoots)

2-3pm(ish): Novelty Shoot #12; #1-11 will close to work around #12 and cannot be guaranteed to be open

*There will be no Royal Rounds at this event.
*Novelty Shoot + Fundraiser Information: You have committed an unspeakable crime and must pay penance by completing 12 Labors — who among you is up to the task?! However… all is not as it appears. The Fates can intervene in these Labors — and you can bribe them to do so! For $1, you can buy a Fate Coin (or $5 for 6, $10 for 15), and use your coin as a Boon for a Labor… OR as a Curse as someone else goes through their own Labor! (The funds raised will go towards beefing up the LW equipment in the Barony.)

Saturday – Thrown Weapons

(a huge thank you to Their Excellencies Khal & Ari, on behalf of The People’s Barony of Bryn Madoc, for making this a reality!)

8-9am: Inspection, Sign-Up, Basic Rules

9-10am: Open Range, Weapons Master Challenge

11am-12pm: Open Range, Thrown Weapons Olympiad Preliminaries

1-2pm: Open Range, Thrown Weapons Olympiad Finals

2-4pm: Open Range, Weapons Master Challenge

*Details to be announced for the Weapons Master Challenge Thrown Weapons Olympiad

Live Weapons participants: Please note that due to space restrictions, the way we set up the range means that archers and throwers will have to retrieve together. I know it’s easy to get sidetracked, but I’ve made sure that none of the novelty shoots will need more than 6 arrows so hopefully we can keep the flow as efficient as possible, do more rounds with fewer shooters, and make sure everyone has a great time
