A Distant Mirror
A contest, a snapshot of objects from history.

Hold a mirror to an ancient object and bring it to life. Create a piece of history that looks, tastes, or sounds as if it came from a time in the distant mirror. Use a picture, illumination, or written description as your inspiration. The goal is the look of a brand new thing. Judging will be based on appearance alone. Method or materials will not be considered. Your written requirements will be to complete a form that asks who, what, when, where and the picture or a copy (photocopies are fine) of the written source.

Their Royal Highnesses of the Middle Kingdom, A'kos and Bella will have a display of the Largesse given by Their people at Their Coronation.

Their Highnesses would appreciate small tokens that could be given out for any number of reasons, including small cups, rings, bracelets, necklaces, etc.

More specifically, They are looking for tokens that have the feel of being Magyar in origin, such as simple metal shank buttons and coins. Mistress Asalah al-Hina has more specific information on these if there is anyone interested in creating such a token.You can contact her at honilynn@comcast.net.

Their Highnesses would also appreciate award tokens and circlets.

Flower Tournament

Bear Pit Styled

Today is a day to honor those whom inspire us to take to the tournament field. In that vein, a bear pit tournament shall be held on both the Armored and Rapier lists.

Each combatant is asked to have their consort available, or someone acting as their inspiration for the day (i.e. – Spouse, Significant Other, A peer, Teacher, child, parent, etc.). When a combatant loses a bout, they will approach Her Majesty to receive a Flower. The combatant must then present the flower to the consort / inspiration of their opponent along with a compliment regarding their opponent.

The consort / inspiration with the most flowers at the end of the tournament will be declared the winner. Flowers will be supplied.

Tourney will continue until time is reached and/or flowers are all distributed.

Pool Tournament

Bear Pit Styled

Depending on the number of attending fighters, we will have four pits with top #? advancing to the next level. This tourney is subject to change if we opt for something more fun and time allows.

Weighted Elimination Tournament

This elimination tournament will be fought in a challenge tournament style. Fencers will be assigned the number of times they may be eliminated based on the level of Rapier awards they have received.

The tournament will continue until only one fencer remains.
