We are exceptionally pleased to announce that the Belt Tournaments will be hosted once again at War of the Wings and the No-Shield Tournaments will be making a reappearance.
A number of years ago Mistress Rozsa and Sir Christian Thomas of York, saw a vacancy in the combat at War of the Wings. They endeavored to fill those vacancies with a series of tournaments for the armored combatants. From the very beginning they had Branches, Peers, and Households step forward to host individual tournaments.
We are thrilled to announce that this year each of these tournaments will be sponsored by a separate House/Peer of our Kingdom and each are providing exceptional prizes.
Artisans: Throughout the years a number of artisans have approached us desiring to contribute prizes to the tournament(s) that inspired them. If you are inspired by a tournament and wish to contribute a prize please contact the hosting Peer/House. If you are uncertain of how to contact them, please contact Mistress Rozsa and she will put you in touch with them.
Armored Fighters: Look at the list of tournaments. Get authorized. Get ready.
Marshals: These will be run Atlantian Speed Tournament style (subject to change as needed). Your assistance will be appreciated for the tournaments you are not authorized to participate in.
MoLs: Signorina Niccolina has taken on the duty of signing in fighters that are not previously registered. Please feel free to pull up a seat to assist her throughout the day.
Waterbearers: You are Heaven on Earth.
