I'm thinking these guidelines (modified from a deed planned at pennsic):
-This will not be a tournament, but a series of challenge bouts to
display the virtues of franchise and prowess. All who acquit
themselves well will share equally in the honor.
-A marshal will preside, as per the SCA's rules, and shall be obeyed
at all times
-Bouts shall be to number of blows well struck (probably 3) or a fight
ending blow. The regular rules will apply, with the caveat of armor as
-Chain is considered proof against cuts but not thrusts.
-Hidden non-period appropriate armour would not count as armor for the
purpose of blow calling.
-A cut or thrust to an unarmored area will count as a blow well
struck, and if to a perf-plate covered face, shall definitively end
-All appropriate pomp, circumstance, and pageantry shall be observed
-Participants shall attempt to outfit themselves in 14th or 15th century kit.
I'm a little torn on the last one. On one hand, I think it would be
awesome. On the other hand, given that I don't think anyone has
appropriate kit for this so it's a pretty expensive requirement. On
the gripping hand probably i will set the minimum requirement to be
helmet appropriate to your appearance on the field. No modern fencing
