Activities

King’s Champion Tourney

The King’s Champion tourney is open to anyone wanting to just fight. At sign-up, we will check to see who wants to be considered for champion and can meet the requirements of the title which is to be able to attend 75% or more of the events throughout the reign including Gulf Wars and attend His Majesty when needed.

The format for the tournament will be a bear pit with timed intervals for different weapon styles. The weapon styles will include sword and shield, glaive, and bastard sword. Upon the conclusion of the bear pit, the king may select some finalists for some additional bouts. The king will announce his champion in court.
Remember that the king’s champion is a high-profile kingdom position and as such, His Majesty will be looking for someone who will represent us well inside, and especially outside, of the kingdom. So, during the fights, besides a high-level of fighting prowess, we want individuals who look sharp, comport themselves well and with great honor, have panache, and also show that they have fun out there!
In case of rain or unsuitable field, all fighting tournaments will be moved to another event.

Guardian of the King’s Dream Tourney
