      Mistress Mysie's Treasure Tourney - A Warlord Tourney at Border Skirmish 2012

      I love Warlord Tourneys, I love watching presentations of largess, and I
      love to hear tales of folk who have been inspirations, so I decided to
      combine all these things into a single grand event.

      In a Warlord Tourney, no one has to stop fighting. The first round begins
      with one-on-one fights. In the second round, the losers of round 1 pair up
      with the one who defeated them, with the original winner being the captain
      of the team. Round 2 is two-on-two, Round 3 is four-on-four, and so on until
      the last round is a melee with the two undefeated captains facing off
      against one another with all the others in their side of the tree fighting
      along-side them.

      All armored combatants are welcome to participate in the Treasure Tourney,
      but all must bring something to put in the treasure chest. I will "seed" the
      treasure with the chest itself (a six-board bench chest with iron fittings)
      and several items for the winning general to keep and/or present ( a
      woven-wire necklace, a rope of pearls, a wax table dyptichwith stylus, a
      length of fine silk suitable for turning into a painted pennan, a woven
      belt, a set of cast pewter buttons with a compasrose design, a pottery
      goblet, and an illuminated pannelshowing the tourney with the appropriate
      heraldry to be entered on the day). At the end of the tourney, all the
      members of the winning side choose 2 treasures in order decided by the
      winning general. Each person gets one treasure to keep and one to present to
      any gentle on site whom they choose to honor.

      I'd love it if the presentations were accompanied by tales of why the
      presentation is being made, too, whether that person is a consort of the
      fighter, someone they saw perform feats of chivalry on the field, someone
      who performed noble deeds in a non-martial way, or a bright-eyed newcomer at
      their first event. The woven-wire necklace, the illumination, and the chest
      are for the winning general, but the other items are for them to present in
      like manner.

      Hopefully, if all goes well, next year we can repeat this tournament on the
      rapier field and then alternate thereafter.

      Mistress Mysie
