War of Ages Heavy Fighting Scenarios

    In 1476, the Grand Prince Ivan III of Russia, prompted by his wife the Grand Princess Sophia, ended the tributary relationship to the Mongol Horde established over 200 years prior. This resulted in Mongol retaliation by the Khan Ahkmed, ending in a series of skirmishes in 1480. The Chivalric melees will be Rus versus Mongol, with two tournaments to determine the commanders of each army.

Armor inspection to begin at 9 am. Sign-in with the lyst mistress will happen concurrently.  Tournaments to start immediately following morning court.

The Rus Commander

To be determined by a bear pit style tournament lasting 45 minutes on two fields. There will be a five-streak cap. At then end of the bear pit, the victor will be announced as the commander of the Russian forces under Grand Prince Ivan III.

The Mongol Commander

To be determined by a snowball-style tournament. The victor of each match will add the defeated opponent(s) to his growing army so that each round will double the number of combatants per side until a single leader emerges victorious. At the end of the tournament, that leader will be announced as the commander of the Mongol Horde under Ahkmed Khan.


A series of limited engagement melees will be fought, with the two commanders leading each side. All fighters will be divided between the two sides by the Marshals as equally as possible. The commanders will be given a few minutes to determine their tactics prior to lay-on being called.  Melee scenario details will be released at the event.
