Lords and Ladies of Calontir, Gentles and Nobles of the Heartland,
His Highness Anton, to honor His lady, the Princess Isabeau, and for the entertainment of Their populace, announces a special tournament to be held on the day of Their Coronation, January 10th, in Their Barony of Three Rivers:
THE TOURNAMENT OF FALLEN CRESTS
All combatants wishing to participate in this tournament must appear on the day with a crest upon their helm standing no less than nine inches high and of no less than four inches in diameter. These crests should be made sturdy enough to withstand the normal movements of combat and of materials that will not pose a safety risk should they be destroyed by an opponent – which is the crux of the tourney! - for the only way to gain victory in a bout is to remove or destroy your opponent’s crest. If a combatant wishes, he or she may even fill the crest with toys or candies to be gathered up by the gathered children should it fall. All bouts will be fought with stout maces, either one- or two-handed depending on the whim of the combatants in each bout, and those who enter the list should do so with no shield save their own skill. The last entrant with an intact crest shall be declared the day’s champion and shall gain fame throughout the Realm!
All questions and inquiries may be directed to Azad Da’ud Abrahimzadeh Sanandaji, called Dawi, who has been charged by His Highness with the organization of this glorious event.
