Marshals will be needed to help, but all marshals will be able to fight in the tournament. All tournaments will be “Atlantian Speed Tournaments”, requiring no bookkeeping during the tournament.

Novice Tournament

The novice tournament is open to anyone who has never won a tournament nor received a combat award. Please note that novice does not mean new and anyone meeting this criteria is encouraged to enter.

Her Royal Majesty Spear Tournament

Must fight with, gasp, a spear.

Invitational Tournament

This will be the now traditional pool tournament fought on six lists, but not limited to six pools. Pools will be between 8-12 fighters per pool. Double kills count as a loss for each fighter. The top fighters from each pool advancing to four new pools of 8. Time allowing, this will then produce two pools from which two finalists will emerge to face each other in a best two of three bout with different weapons from from the following choices – Sword and Shield, Two Weapon, Pole Arm, Spear, Mass Weapon and Shield. First choice will go to the fighter with lesser precedence, then the other. If a third round is needed, it will be royal choice but not a repeat. If time runs short then the top two for the second four pools will hold a single elimination tourney to select the final two.
