On the 10th day of September – a Saturday - , the gentle Ladies invite worthy combatants to enter the lists in the ruins of Frauenstein in the village of Ruppertsecken, near the famed Donnersberg.
Prove your worth at the gate, either with a gift the ladies find suitable, or in single concept with the mysterious Red Knight. Once inside, enter the Lists and do fine Deeds of Arms for the sake of your renown and the entertainment of the Noble Gallery. The fighter who impressed the ladies most will be our Herzwald Champion of the year. It is not necessary to win every fight if you want to impress the ladies – fight with honor and passion!
Second, every honorable Lord has the chance to impress the Ladies during the day with non-fighting deeds – entertain the Ladies by singing, playing an instrument or dancing, show your fine arts in crafting, be a gentleman and offer something to drink or eat, just be creative!
Every Lady has five favors which she can give away to a Lord who deserves it in her eyes. The Lord with the most favors in the end of the day will be our Herzwald Noble Man of the year. All who would share in the day, be they honorable combatants, Gentle Ladies, noble spectators, heralds, or even jongleurs, are most welcome. Following the Tournament, the Shire of Vielburgen will supply luncheon.
