*Outlands Heavy Combat Prize Tournament at Estrella War*

Thursday, February 27 - Registration at 9:00am & Tournament starts at
10:00am Special Events Field/Eric in Town Square.



The Kingdom of the Outlands will hold their annual heavy weapons prize
tournament open to all authorized heavy weapons fighters.  Sign-up for the
tournament will be held beginning at 9 a.m. with tourney starting at 10 a.m.
The fighting will be as follows:



To open, there will be up to 6 fighting fields with equal numbers of
fighters in each.  Assignment of fighters to these cells will be a mixture
from all kingdoms represented at sign-up.   Each cell will hold a 1-hour
Bear Pit tournament.  The first and second fighters will start off in a
single fight.  The loser will exit to give the name of the one who just
beat them to the Lists Mistress for their field and goes to the end of the
line.  The next fighter in the line goes in to fight the winner.  You know
the drill.  If there is a double kill, both fighters are considered to have
a loss.  In this case, 2 new fighters will enter the ring for the next
fight.  If a fighter in a cell achieves 15 wins, they are automatically in
the final and are removed from the Bear Pit.  Weapons are limited to 7.5
feet in length.



After the 1-hour Bear Pit, the top 5 winning fighters (including those that
acquired 15 wins in that cell) will move on to a Best 2-of-3, double
elimination tournament with all the pomp (double kills refought).  Draws
will be semi-random but will try to minimize the fighters having to fight
someone from their own kingdom or one they have fought before.  This will
start with two (or more) fields and dwindle to one as the number of
fighters lessons.



The victor will receive wonderful prizes gifted by Outlands artisans and
her citizens!

The Tournaments will be held on Friday the 27th of February, at Estrella

will oversee the Hardsuit list and Her Excellency Elena will have the
Rapier list.  The lists are open to all non-belted and non-white scarf
fighters of the Known World who have been fighting in their respective
disciplines for 3 years or less. Fighters are encouraged to use whichever
weapon form that they feel most competent with and may choose a different
weapon form in any round. The Tournament formats will depend on the number
of participants.



Fighters, bring your Consort and any pageantry that you can muster. If you
do not have a consort, we can help find you one. If you would like to be a
consort, please see Her Excellency Elena of Atenveldt at 2:30PM at the list
table.



We ask that the members of the Chivalry and the White Scarf come support
the young fighters and help to marshal the lists.



The Lists will open at 2:30PM and the tourney will begin at 3:30pm. All
Fighters will go through a formal inspection of armor and weapons. There
will be a medallion for the Overall Victor of each tournament, and also one
for the fighter deemed to be the most Chivalrous by HE Elena's Ladies
Gallery. The medallions and entrance favors are crafted by Duke Arthur
O'Flaherty, Laurel and Knight of the Society.
