Bear Pit Tournament at Coronation

Forwarded on for Aethelwine Aethelredson, MIC: 

The time approaches to thank Their Majesties  Anton and Isabeau for Their service as Crown of Calontir, and celebrate as Their Royal Highnesses Xerxis and BelAnna take Their places as the 64th King and Queen of the falcon lands.

Coronation will be held in The Barony of The Lonely Tower.  Come join us as we hold our version of a Roman circus, complete with wild tigers imported from the best menageries the Kingdom has to offer.

With the permission of His Royal highness, we will be holding a bear pit tournament with a couple of twists. 

First, this pit will be for teams to increase the death for the pleasure of our populace.  Teams will be restricted to a maximum of 8 points spent on members.  Each member of the chivalry will cost 4 points, members of grant level fighting orders will cost 3 points, members of AoA level fighting orders will cost 2 points, and anyone who does not have a fighting award will cost 1 point.  If you are not sure how many points you cost, contact the MIC for a ruling.

Some possible team combinations, just to help clarify:

  • 2 Knights
  • 1 Knight and 4 Men at Arms
  • 2 Huscarls and 1 Fyrdman
  • 4 Fyrdmen
  • 8 Men at Arms

Secondly, we are importing tigers that will be able to enter restricted areas of the arena.  Think tiger on a chain popping out of the sand.  These tigers will be hungry and looking to maim or kill unwary gladiators.

We will have plenty of space available for shade flies, chairs, banners, and anything else you may want to set up to add to the spectacle.

If you would like to help, let me know.

For more information on Coronation, see the Coronation page. For more information on the bear pit tournament, contact Aethelwine.

Also as a reminder, There will be a rattan tournament on Saturday in which one fighter from each barony will be a "Tiger" whose job is to kill anyone who comes into their area. The Tigers will use double weapons such as two swords, sword and mace, mace and polearm, etc.

If you would like to represent Forgotten Sea as our Tiger, please let us know via email at baronage@bfs-kc.org. Thank You!
