Revolt of the Comuneros

The year is 1521. Tensions are high! The king is more concerned with his Conquistadors and his new acquisitions in the Americas than his own people at home! Infighting is on the rise and the inquisition further divides the masses! Taxation to fund the skirmishes across Europe further escalates the dissent! The people are not happy! Revolution! Revolution! Who will you represent…the commoners, the nobility, the cardinals? Come take part in a Spanish Revolution and help determine who will rule the day!
Please join Their Excellencies Loch Soilleir Krag von Berghen & Henessey Donohue and Stargate Brenna MacDonald & Sarra Asshton of York as they choose their champions in Archery, Equestrian, Chivalric, and Rapier combat!

Their excellencies of Stargate and Loch Soilleir have requested some fun events for the chivalric fighting this weekend. A great way to start the day off with a cup of blam is a 3v3 melee tourney. It is sure fire way to entertain the crowd and show off teamwork and individual prowess.
This will be closely followed by a first to three points single sword barrier battle tourney. A very fast paced tourney to help every one who didnt get enough fighting in the 3v3.
Everyone should be good and warmed up for the Swiss 5 bearpit tourney. Sir Ysfael ran this last year and it was so popular that its back again. You have 5 weapon styles to choose from, single sword, two sword, sword and shield, great weapon, and 6ft spear. This tournament runs until everyone is out of styles to fight with and only one warrior is left standing.
These first three tourneys will let their excellencies narrow the field down to 6 finalists. These skilled fighters will get a chance to go head to head in a viking boat battle. The Vikings will bring two long boats near, along side. The oars would be held out horizontally. The two combatants would fight while standing on the oars. If you fall off the oars you die.
Good luck to all that would enter.
Duke Sven Randullsson
Chivalric champion of Stargate
When signing in with the list mistress, each combatant will pick a side (or be assigned a side): Comuneros Rebel, Royalist Castilian, or Churchman.
Early in the day, tensions are high, but hostilities have not commenced:
• Each group will take a part of the field to train for obvious conflict to come.
• Challenge within your team
• Report wins to List Mistress
• Marshall if not fighting
• Comuneros vs. The Church (Royalists marshal)
• Church vs. Royalists (Comuneros marshal)
• Royalists vs. Comuneros (Church marshal)
• Challenge as you will
• Report wins to List MistressAfter each group has faced the other 2 groups, the Landed Nobility will confer with the List Mistress to see what they have witnessed compares with cold, hard numbers. The nobles will choose members from the opposing teams that they wish to see more from. Those moving on will be informed and the nobles will request pairings as they see fit. The tournament will conclude when the nobles have seen enough and are confident in the choosing of their champions. This segment of the tournament will begin at 2:00.At the conclusion of the rapier champion’s tournament, there will be a Cut & Thrust Tournament for those seeking renown in that art. Tournament format will be determined by number of entrants, but will likely be some form of Swiss 5 or Round Robin. There is no championship to be won, but your prowess will be recognized. (Note that the new rules revision for armour for C&T that were released this week have a grace period until July 27, so pre-revision armour standards will be enforced.)
