Event Description
Full rules for this event can be found by following the Queen of Hearts link at www.rhiassa.com

Come join us for the annual Queen of Hearts Tournaments and War Maneuvers. This is the 26th anniversary of Queen of Hearts and we're excited to continue with the many format changes we made at last year's event!

To compete in tournaments you must be supporting someone who is running for the honorific title of "Queen of Hearts".

You can come to the event not supporting anyone and then offer your services to someone on Saturday morning if you want to. Individual tournaments are run with one entry from each team. If you want to do individual tournies, you would do well to contact a team or set up your own.

If you are running a team you must inform the EHs. There is a 6 team cap. First come, first served. Only a paid pre-reg of your Queen & FOUR True Supporters saves you a spot. Please send the check to the Rocky Hill address above and send an email with the list of True Supporters' IC and OOC names, or use the Paypal link on RealmsNET.

Please review the full list of tourneys if you are assembling a team. There have been changes, including specifications for the entries for some non-coms.
Rules Changes and Notes
The crafting categories for this year:
- A "set" of throwing weapons (at least two in the set).

- Head/helmet.

- Mantle.

- A Familiar.

- Telling of an original myth or legend.

Presentations during court are allowed, but presentations are to be limited to 90 seconds. This gives players a minute an a half to present the projects. After 90 seconds, they will be pulled from the stage, no matter what. A 10 second warning will be given. Performance is limited to about five minutes. Along with the court presentations, teams are encouraged to submit a write up on non-com entries. Doing so will allow the judges a greater insight into your projects if you are on the field or otherwise not able. The write up should contain information for the judges such as a few paragraphs of IC information, construction information, hours invested, and any techniques or features the creator is especially proud of.

Please direct all questions about non-com competitions to Jen DeNardis-Rosa at areni.daru@gmail.com
