The Chess Challenge IV is proudly brought to you (again!) by the Barony of Stormhold. All fighters on the checkered field of Chess and Heavy are welcome to try their skills for the Chess Champion!
This is a potluck picnic, so please bring a plate.
Rules for the tourney are-
Round 1 - Pawns: Everyone to fight with sharpened sticks (i.e. thrusting spears)
Round 2 - Knights: Counted Blows eg- each fighter gets to throw five blows or three good blows with arms & legs not lost.
Round 3 - Bishops: Maces and shields.
Round 5 - Rooks: Sword and large shield (defence)
Round 6 - Queens: Queens are the best protected and each combatant fights with two guardsmen drawn at random, fight to end with the death of the "queen".
The Chess portion will also be handled differently, with points given to victory and half point to draws. The winner of the Chess battle will be the Good Gentle with the most points.
Merchants are welcome, but not to sell food. There is a small fee of $1.00 and you must provide your own table.
