Baroness Shauna of Carrick Point reports that Count Michael O'Brien, fighting for the honor of Countess Sati al-Isfahaniyya, was the victor of the October 11, 2008 Crown Tournament in the Kingdom of Artemisia.

Count Michael defeated Duke Sean in the finals of the Tournament.


Duke Alan, Artemisia Earl Marshal, adds (by way of Her Excellency Baroness Juliana):

Greetings All, Crown Tournament ended up with 20 entrants, and with the assistance of some "Lord Bye" fighters, the list rounded out nicely. Overall the list was very hard fought and honorable, with much glory and advancement to be gained by all who entered. There were 2 pools, with 4 fighters advancing into the quarter finals from each pool: Duke Sean, Count Michael, Count Morgan, Viscount Thomas, Sir Yuri, Sir Bartholomew, Lord Jamukha, Lord Vidar.

Going into the semi-finals was: Duke Sean, Count Michael, Count Morgan, Sir Bartholomew.

Of course, as you know the final was Duke Sean and Count Michael. All finals (quarter, semi, and final) were fought best 2/3, single elimination. The final match between HG Sean and HE Michael, was a great display of martial excellence!

A good day, and thanks to all who organized, worked hard, and came to witness the making of our new Crown Prince and Princess!

YIS, Alan
