So bring your friends, and family, bring those you hold dear (and those you don’t hold so dear, we are stabbing people with swords here people), show up to practice and start training now!

 

Friday

Recon

The town is hosting warriors from the neighboring barony. Gather some Intel on the enemy fighters by fighting them either single combat or in teams of your choosing. This is a civil affair so keep it polite! Challenges must be issued and accepted between the parties involved. This is a mixer, so resurrections will be cut off at a certain point in order to roll into scenarios.

Objective of scenario: everyone against everyone else.
When you die, take a knee and count to 10, then resurrect in place.
Battle will go until no resurrections are available remaining fighters will be given a chance to finish their fights but no more than a couple minutes.

Resurrections: unlimited during initial time.
RBG’s allowed: no
Spears allowed: yes

 

Steal their Supplies

The neighboring barony, emboldened by their reconnaissance, has marched an invading army in an attempt to take the castle! The city is about to be under siege, defenses must be prepared if the invading force is to be kept out. Supply caches are stationed around the field. To successfully capture supplies, they must be taken back to your base. Gather the supplies from around the town before the invaders can seize them!

Objective of scenario: Take as many supply caches as you can.
Scenario will be run 4 times until all resources have been captured or 15 minutes have elapsed. Attackers and defenders will switch off between rounds. The side who gathers the most resources between both rounds will be the victor.

Resurrections: Unlimited.
RBG’s allowed: yes. Limited shots
Spears allowed: no

 

Rescue the Governor

In an attempt to get the king to intercede, the Governor attempted to get away, but was injured by the invaders’ archers in the process. Rescue him before he can be secured and taken for execution. Each army will start from a set location. The noble is invulnerable and is legged and must be “carried” by 2 living fighters. In the event that one of the fighters carrying the noble is killed/legged, progression must cease. The Noble must be escorted/carried to the designated point to win the scenario.
