Subject: [Ayreton] Impromptu Rapier Games for Foxhunt VIII
Since I found myself unable to take on the long drive to Rose Tourney, I've offered to be MIC for Rapier at Fox Hunt.
I've got a melee scenario and a tourney planned, followed by pick-ups till you drop. I tried to stick somewhat to their viking themed event.
As always pick-ups and auths in the morning.
Herd the Sheep
Planning to use the sheep from the armour-free challenge
being held that day. Simple idea, get
the sheep to the longhouse before others can stop you or steal your sheep. If a sheep is used as a parry device, it is
dead on the field and not a point anymore (so don’t kill the sheep).
“Let me see what you
got there?” Tourney
A Double Elimination tourney. Fighters will enter the field with a chosen
weapon style, approach their opponent, and say “Let me see what you got
there?” Fighters will declare what
style they are fighting, and in which hand in the instance they say “Offhand
Single”. Then a coin is flipped by the
marshal after labeling one fighter ‘heads’ and one ‘tails’. Winner of the coin toss then picks which of
the weapon styles, of the two brought to the field, they will use. The loser takes the remaining style. In the case of a style you are unauthorized
in, revert to single sword. Coin toss
may be changed to Rock/Paper/Scissors/Lizard/Spock upon the fighter’s and/or
marshal’s whim. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock
So Bob comes out with Sword and Cloak
And Tom comes out with Sword and Buckler
Bob wins the coin toss. Bob chooses Sword and Buckler, leaving Tom with Sword and cloak because either:
1) He knows Tom is not great with Sword and Cloakor2) He feels more confident with Sword and Buckler, and isn't sure of Tom's talent with sword and Cloak, but knows Tom is always using Sword and Buckler and is quite confident with it.
the New Viking Berserker
Get your Skirmishing in.
Taunt, harass, and enrage your opponents. Kill your opponent and move on to the next
one. Get in all the fighting that you
