Full Descriptions

Champions' Tourney

It's the single toughest tourney in the Realms today. It lasts two days long and if you win, you'll be in very good company. Up to four cards exist for Champions, for the teams' Champions that place 1st through 4th place. These cards are worth 50, 30, 20, and 10 points respectivly. If less than four teams compete, the Champions card(s) worth the greatest number of points will be dropped (so if only 3 teams exist, the three Champion cards will be worth 30, 20, and 10).

Mages' Tournament

Almost a Champions’ tournament in its own right, this is two days of physical and mental exertion. You must be a spellcaster to participate, but the number of paths you have and the variety are of no matter. Up to four cards exist for Mages, for the teams' Mages that place 1st through 4th place. These cards are worth 50, 30, 20, and 10 points respectivly. If less than four teams compete, the Mages card(s) worth the greatest number of points will be dropped (so if only 3 teams exist, the three Mage cards will be worth 30, 20, and 10).

One Man Tourney

The best male fighters from each team compete against each other to determine who is the best. You should expect to fight with different weapon styles and in both armored and unarmored combat.

One Woman Tourney

The best female fighters from each team compete against each other to determine who is the best. You should expect to fight with different weapon styles and in both armored and unarmored combat.

Couples' Tourney

You have to be willing to kiss each other. In public. Possibly a great many times. You also fight other couples from other teams, of course. You should expect to fight with different weapon styles and in both armored and unarmored combat.

RATs' Tourney

"RATs" are Rogues, Assassins, and Thieves. The skills normally associated with these professions will be the most useful here. Your team must keep the identity of the RAT as secret as possible. Be ready for anything, folks.

Newbies' Tourney

Your newbie must have started eventing since last year's Queen of Hearts. They will be asked not only to demonstrate their prowess in combat, but also their knowledge of the rules, etiquette (unwritten rules) and Realms history & current events (both in and out of character.) How well do you prepare the people you bring into the Realms?

Young Champions' Tourney

Your Young Champion must have started eventing since Queen of Hearts five years ago. Young Champions will take part in a selected portion of the Champion's tournamnet, competing against one another, and even (in some cases) against the other teams' Champions, in combat and non-combat competitions.

Knights' and Squires' Tournament

A Knight and Squire may enter this tournament. They will compete both as a team and individually in several types of combat. Beyond combat, entrants will be tested on their individual perceptions of their knighthoods and what they mean. A knight does not have to enter with his/her specific squire, but if he/she does, it is worth a small bonus.

Spirit & Steel Tournament

A spellcaster and a fighter team up in this traditional two-person team competition. They will compete as a team and individually in various forms of combat.

Daggers, Single Short, True Florentine, Sword and Shield, Sword and Marn, Hand and a Half, Great Weapon

In the spirit of pure competition, each of the basic weapon styles has its own tournament. True Florentine is two non-marn weapons (two stick). Pikes are allowed in Great Weapon.

Boffer Archery Tourney

Are you the best archer in the realms? Can you prove it by killing other archers? You must have your own bow to participate. This tournament will involve both combat and some accuracy and skill competition.

Duncan's Challenge

You must win 3 out of five fights against your opponent. You have a choice of five weapons (dagger, single short, florentine, sword & shield and hand and a half) for each fight, but once you use a weapon combo, it may not be used again. In the first fight, both fighters pick their weapons simultaneously. After the first fight, the person that won the previous fight must pick first, and their opponent can choose which weapons they want to counter with.

Pages' Tournament

Kids are welcome at Queen of Hearts! This tournament is for children ages 7-12. This is the one tournament that teams may enter as many entrants as they want. In the spirit of having fun, it will not be run in a competitive fashion - there will be no "losers" in this tourney. Children will participate in some light combat and other fun activities. Teams earn 1 point per page entered in the Pages Tourney. Please pre-reg if you are going to bring pages so we can prepare the right number of activities.

Western Flank

If there is enough time (and energy) in the evening, we will have a short nightquest. Nightquest's need NPCs. For each NPC that your team donates (up to 10), you will recieve a point.
