Details of the Rapier Tourney
Amid the celebrations, a Rapier Tourney will be held to show our new Baron and Baroness the grace and prowess of the fencers who uphold the honour of the Kingdom of Lochac through their skill and chivalry. Combatants will have the opportunity to be presented to Their Excellencies and to take the field in defence and support of the virtues of Courtesy and Beauty.
The Rapier Tourney will be held prior to the heavy combat tourney, so that fighters may enter both tourneys according to their wish. Points from the Rapier Tourney will count towards the Lochac Rapier Championship.
