  • Queen's Heart Tourney Format

    For this Queen's Heart Tourney at Spring Coronation 2015, there will be a slight change. There will be a scroll for the fighter who takes the field. However, the fighter who will wear the Defender of the Queen's Heart mantle will be chosen by her Majesty at the end of the lyst. This person is pledged with defending her Majesty and being her Champion. This fighter should exemplify chivalry, courtesy and honor, and show these traits upon the field.

    Before signing up to the lyst, each fighter must show that her Highness (before Coronation, her Majesty after...)has given approval for entrance in the lyst. Her Highness will have tokens to give to those fighters she wishes to enter the lyst once they present themselves and request one. Please introduce yourself and present why you wish to enter the Queen's Heart Tourney.

    Upon presenting themselves to the lyst field, the fighter will show the token to the lyst mistress in order to receive their entrance card. The fighter will take the entrance card and get inspected, allowing the inspecting marshal to sign off on the card. Once done, the fighter will present the fighter card and their device to the lyst mistress, who will hold both for the pairings.

    Round 1 – Single Sword.
    Round 2 – Sword and Defensive Secondary
    Round 3 – Sword and Dagger
    Round 4 – Brace of Swords

    (repeat as necessary until there are two finalists)

    The finals will be a best of 3. The inspiration for each finalist shall choose the weapon style of the opponent. The inspiration can choose each style only once. If the finalist's inspiration is not available to choose, then by default the fighter's weapon style will be single, Sword and Defensive, and Sword and Dagger.
