Glory Wars

description:
Glory comes to he that joins his cause with others. To this end do we call the Honorable Knights of our Great Kingdom of Atlantia to come and lead groups of armored combatants upon the battlefield in a melee tournament for Glory. All fighters bring your swords, your spears, and maces and join the ranks of a team to fight for victory and a common cause.

Come All ye seekers of Glory for there will be competitions enough to go around. Along with the armored team tournament, Rapier fighters may try your swords in group combat in a castle battle. If your heart does not lie with a sword, then arm yourselves with your skills instead. Archers find your target true and earn your own glory. Artists, use your talents to glorify your arms within your artwork. Bards sing from your heart a song of glory or recite your tale of glory to earn your meal at the Victor's Tavern.

Team Competitions:

  • Armored Combat Team Melee
  • Rapier Castle Siege
  • Target Archery

Authorizations and Marshal Training:
Authorizations will take place Friday evening and Saturday early.
Achbar would like to invite all Marshals in Training to come and learn melee.
