Sir Cosmo Craven Wins Atenveldt Crown Tourney

In an exciting final round, Sir Cosmo Craven, Sir Phelan and Sir Dietrich fought each other for the honor of crowning their Queen. In the end, Sir Cosmo became the Heir of Atenveldt and placed the coronet on Sir Ismenia's head. One tournament observer wrote:

"Well to get any suspense off, congratulations to Sir Cosmo Craven the Elder and his Consort, Sir Ismenia. Over the last 4 months or so, I have spent many Monday evenings at their house building armor and/or practicing hardsuit fighting. I call both of them friends and am very glad that Sir Cravon won.

I had a good day helping out in the royal pavillion and taking pictures of the fighting. I was able to take pictures of each couple participating in the tournament today as well as capture the last few rounds of the fighting."

Baroness Katharine of Cate Hall, Aten Signet, commented:

"In what was perhaps the most exciting final round I've seen in years, Sir Cosmo Craven, Sir Phelan and Sir Dietrich fought each other with such grace, ferocity and courtesy that I was moved, excited and finally, thrilled as Sir Cosmo became the Heir of Atenveldt and placed the coronet on Sir Ismenia's head.

The coronet was so large that Sir Cosmo had trouble keeping it from falling down around his neck and His Majesty removed his own coif and placed it on His Highness head in an attempt to keep the coronet in place. By closing court a fine fur edged cap had been found above which the coronet of the Crown Prince of Atenveldt proudly gleamed.

This was a good day!"
