Summer Cycle Talon of Redwin Tournament

Post by DUEL Sylus » Thu Aug 04, 2016 1:05 pm

The time is upon us once again for the cycles Talon of Redwin.

This tournament will be held on Sunday August 21st starting approximately at 8:15 Rhydin Time, and with allowing for lateness, the fighting will begin promptly at 8:30 pm Rhydin Time.

This is a single elimination tournament and the seeding shall be done via registration which begins at the time of this posting

Ranks eligible for participation are,
Grandmaster,
Master at Arms,
Swordsman,
and
Commoner.

Warlords, Barons, and Squires are encouraged to attend and offer advice to newer fighters if desired.

All participants will have their wins added to their records and their losses erased.

In addition, functional replicas of weapons used by former Overlords will be on hand for combatants to use. Examples of some of them are...

Vixxenish' Deadly Teabag. Nothing is more memorable than getting clubbed in the face by a giant, wet, bag of tea grounds.

Alais d'Nightsong Sidhe's moonsilver Falcion,

Xenograg kathu'Darelir's Sword and Scabbard, originally one of the first Dual Weilding swordsmen and women of the Arena, this former Overlord changed to using his scabbard as an offhand item on occasion.

G'nort's Warhammer,

And Tormey Eludes' Rapier.

Duelists and Arena historians alike are encouraged to come out and cheer on the entrants and share stories surrounding the fabled weapons on display.


Good luck!

Replicas? Sounds boss.

98th Overlord reporting for duty. I'll swing by and see if someone wants to borrow one of the real weapons that won the title. If anyone's interested, feel free to ask.

I'll put the 104th Overlord's real wakizashi up for use. Be careful with it though, whoever breaks it gets their face broken too.

Talon repeat for the Keeper of Cookies? Doing it with the 101st Overlord's gunblade? The real one, no replicas.

Addie's in.

As patrons and fighters make their way into the Arena, they will find stone busts of former Overlords placed throughout the cavernous space. Etched onto each bust is the dates of their reigns, number of times they held station, and a recreation of their preferred weapon as taken from where mentioned in the histories.

Bran Bale's clover leave glaive,

Baphelocutis' war staff with it's spike and pincer,

Teagan's Rail Spike,

G'nort Dragoon Talanedor's warhammer

Max Quinlan Blue's katana named Chukandomo; and a staff with a hook situated at one extremity and a blade situated at the other.

Kimone Kidd's MMA gloves

Aya Hashibara's Naginata

among many others both newer and historic.

Apologies for failing to arrive. I forgot the time of the tournament was eastern and not central and was away. I will try again next cycle.

Sincerely, and idiot.
