As activities and gatherings continue around the Kingdom, We are so very very hopeful that the precautions being taken by the Province will continue to allow us to gather as we have been this past month so Our Crown Tournament might continue as planned on October 30!
As announced in Our September letter, We have reopened the call for applications with a deadline of 11:59 pm Friday, October 1, 2021 which is now just under a week away. If you are interested in submitting, please send your letter of intent and required paperwork to Us and Kingdom Seneschal Xristina by email in advance of the deadline. Should you have any questions regarding requirements, please contact Us.
We are looking forward to seeing the Kingdom’s honourable combatants, inspirited by their consorts, take the field in chivalrous combat. We have been too long without Heirs!
King Rattanicus and Queen Isabel

All fights will be matched weapon form throughout with the fighter coming from the no loss side getting 1st, 3rd, and 5th weapons selections and the combatant from the one loss side will choose the 2nd and 4th weapon form. During the semi finals every effort will be made to ensure combatants do not fight someone they have met in the previous round. If this is not possible the pairings will be done randomly.
