Event Description

Hear ye! Hear ye! Adventurers of these Realms!

Be it known far and wide that the Kingdom and Crown of Chimeron will be hosting a tournament on this the first of October of this the year 1022 within the lands of Gryphon Hall.

Bring your armor and your spells to the field in a live demonstration and celebration of the skills which have brought us victory against countless foes in this plane and beyond. Bring as well a herald to declare your virtues before the crowds.

For those who wish to compete but are typically restricted by the bounds of magic, be it known as well that this field bears the blessing of Rawonam. Simply leave your spellbook or another token of your magical talents at his shrine and the magic will stay there for the day, permitting you use of all weapons and armor.

Let it be cried across the land that the List will be split as follows: Knights, Attendants, Untitled. Those who may claim Knighthood in any Order of these Realms may compete in the Knight bracket whether that Order traditionally use the title of Knight or not. Attendants as well may come from any Order so long as they are the recognized student of an Order. Last but certainly not least, the Untitled are any who do not claim any title within the ranks of any Order.

We look forward to seeing you on the field.

Lord Sir Tara Harkon

OOC:
Chimeron would like to invite you to a day of pageantry and tournamenting. Dust off your fanciest armor and your finest courtly skills and come face each other on the field of honor. We will be having tournaments for both singles and pairs with singles in the morning and pairs in the afternoon.

Along with combat tournaments, we’ll also be having a selection of bardic tournaments presented on the same field as the combat and a special, brand new bardic tournament in the evening.

There will be a dayboard available and dinner, and a chance to just socialize and enjoy the day after dinner. Pre-reg gets you to the front of the dinner line, as well as ensuring that there’s a turkey leg for you.

We are using the flexible event pricing model that Ashenmark is piloting. The event is $15-25 with $15 being the minimum and $25 being the maximum. Please pay what you feel comfortable paying. There are no perks to paying more, just the knowledge that you’re helping the event to run.

Vendors! If you’re interested in bringing your shop, please do! We’ll have a space dedicated for shopping.

And last but not least, we recommend bringing chairs for those who will want to sit and watch the fighting in the ring. We will not have our own seating available.

We hope to see you there!
