The Castellan heavy tournament will be the traditional meatgrinder with a Tolkien Twist.

Bring your best to be Northkeep’s next chivalric champion!

This year’s rapier tournament will be a tournament of three challenges.


The First Challenge

  • The first challenge will be the Battle for the Ring, wherein the players will be assigned to teams to get the ring to their end of the field.
  • Each member of the winning team will receive 1 point.


The Second Challenge

  • The second challenge will be Combat Elevenses.
  • This will be a meatgrinder where combatants will be armed with a frying pan of “food” in one hand and a rapier combat weapon in the other. Both arms will be in play!

The Final Challenge

  • The final challenge will be Take the Ring.
  • This will be a meatgrinder with only a dagger while combatants fight to the ring.

Come show off your rapier and frying pan skills while fighting to be Northkeep’s next rapier champion!

Bring your bow and/or crossbow to participate in a ring shoot, a wand shoot, and possibly fight a balrog!

Have fun with flying, stabby things!

More information is coming! Have fun throwing stabby things!

The Castellan Arts and Sciences Competition is a standard style A&S Competition using the Ansteorran Judging Forms. As such, Documentation is recommended.

In the theme of the event, we encourage participants to be creative in their choice of works and consider entering items that in any way remind them or maybe inspired by the “Fellowship of the Ring” theme of the event.

Whether that is practical items (such as traveling garb, wooden craftwork, metalwork, leather goods, hats, dishes, or food) any such things as might have been found on the journey or inspired by motifs thereto. (You may of course make any argument that your favorite A&S entry fits this theme even if it might not seem obvious).


While this is certainly not required, we hope it will inspire artisans and you will have fun!

This year’s Bardic competition will consist of two initial rounds in the morning, wherein finalists will be chosen to take part in the traditional final task, of composing a piece of the topic or theme of Their Excellencies’ choice over a period of one hour, when it will then be performed for Their Excellencies as part of the judging.

For the first two rounds, you may bring any pieces you like, though bonus consideration will be given to anything that touches on the topic or theme of ‘journeys’ (traveling, sailing, raiding, coming of age adventures, instrumentals inspired by the feelings of a journey; anything you feel fits this theme), and Their Excellencies have requested that at least one piece in the early rounds be a Fellowship in some way: audience participation, accompaniment, duet or group performance for example. You may be creative with both criteria!
