You can enter as few or as many as you would like. However, your point total for the day is additive. You can win at "Greatsword" and enter nothing else, earning 3 points. If another player placed 3rd in four other events, he would have a higher score than you, with 4 points. The idea here is that the person who does best across all catagories is the most well rounded warrior and thus deserving to be called Champion.

This was something we considered but it did not fit into an otherwise solid view of how the event would work. They have been popular in the past for sure.

If anyone cares to design an archery competition, elder it, and supply a prize, it would be a good thing to work in and I'm all for it.

Shoot Murphy while he is tourney fighting, shoot nobles wearing elder tunics, shoot any noble that pops their head out the barn balcony door...this could work.

This event will have a lot of activities going on and we will be making full use of the barn and the pavilion. I encourage people to bring food and drink and not just treat this as a normal battle day but a festival event at which anything can happen.

Thanks to the elders,vendors, and judges for making this event happen for us. Also, thanks again to 2012 EB (mainly john if I'm not mistaken) for landing us this site, it paid off.
Congrats to the winners in the tourneys and bouts! Fall is coming!
