Early Bear Pit
Warm up. Simple tourney to get the blood going and burn off some calories before feast.
Winner stay three bouts point per win. Wounds retained for bronze ring and up.
Continue bear pit, demonstrations (if someone desires), or a 2 on 1 tourney.
The more experienced fighter will hold the list against two lesser experienced
fighters. 1 point per bout. If either side gets through the fight without being
wounded they get an additional bonus point.
list open for practice (if marshal present)
Best of the Best
Round robin best of 5 with a little twist. Swiss 5 within the best of 5.
If you do not have your two handed auth then rigid and non rigid are two
separate styles. If you do have it then parry device and two handed your
choice which parry. If you do not have all styles default to single unless
your opponent allows you to reuse your styles. Top two will determine the
winner during feast.
2:30 (or when the other tourney finishes)
Not that Style Tourney
Another simple round robin tourney. Best of three (or single elim if we all decide). The twist here you must fight with your last authorized style. If you don’t remember then your opponent picks.
For fun simple bear pit. Draw your opponents style and draw again for your advantage or disadvantage.
Based on a 13th Century Tournament format.
