Non-Championship Marshalate Activities
We don't want anyone to leave with their cup 'o blam not filled, therefore we have PLENTY of fighting for our chivalric and rapier community!
Throughout the day, there will be rotations on the side field of chivalric and rapier fighting. The speed of the rounds may slow down, if necessary for safety and exhaustion, based on the number of fighters in attendance.
The rounds are planned, as detailed below, but these may change, based on availability of weapon styles. The goal of the weapon styles is to mimic those that will be used in the Baronial Championships.
Chivalric Bear Pits Rotation:
If there is enough interest, we will have grand melees.
If there is not enough interest, we will another bear pit with 9' Spear
Rapier Bear Pits Rotation:
2-Rapier & Bucker (we have loaner bucklers)
3-Rapier & Secondary
4-Rapier & Dagger
