All fighters are welcome and encouraged to participate, even if they are not eligible to or do not want to serve as the An Dubhaigheiann armored champion.
With that, we’re doing a “dungeon crawl” bear pit inspired by our last An Dub fencing championship!
1 hour+ cascading bear pit. Total time will be agreed upon before start depending on what the schedule allows and what combatants want to do. Matched weapons are encouraged but not required.
Three lists with the line starting at list one. If you lose in the first list, you get one point and get on the end of the line. If you win in the first list, you go to the second line. If you lose in the second list, you get three points and go to the end of the line. If you win in the second list, you go to the third list and fight the current champion, Sir Brick. If you lose in the third list, you get six points and go to the end of the line. If you win in the third list, you get ten points and go to the end of the line.
Loss in first list = 1 point
Loss in second list = 3 points
Loss in third list = 6 points
Win in third list = 10 points
At the conclusion of the bear pits, the top two or four scoring fighters, depending on number of entrants, will move on to a weapons-depth based finale. If there are semi-finals, it will be best two out of three with alternating matched weapons forms among those provided. Finals will be best three out of five with alternating matched weapons forms among those provided. If finals go to the fifth round, it will be bring your best. For both the semi-finals and finals, the lower Order of Precedence fighter picks the first form.
Provided weapon forms:
· Sword & Dagger
· Bearded Axe
· Mace & Shield (bring your own shield)
The provided weapons will be given as prizes for the overall winner, the chosen champion (if you win and are chosen you get two sets of weapons), best death chosen by all audience members, and whoever traveled the farthest and fought in the tournament.
The Baronial Champion will be chosen by their Excellencies, Prefect Titus and Baroness Sorcha from among the eligible and willing entrants.
