Baronial Rapier Championship

ALL entrants must present themselves before Their Excellencies at morning court on Saturday. 

The rules for the fighting and the awards of “Points” (in the form of coins) are as follows:

 

Fights can only be ended by a killing blow to the opponent, this consists of a valid blow to the torso, head or neck, this also includes the armpit to approximately 3 inches down the under side of the arm, and the inner thigh approximately 3 inches from the groin.

 

Any valid blows to arms and or legs that are not a killing blow will not be counted as loss of limb however they will be counted in the modifiers for the coins awarded. Fighters struck in the arm or leg must verbally acknowledge the blow to their opponent so that all may know they were struck a valid blow. Repeatedly striking the same limb does not garner any advantage to the striking fighter (Ill elaborate on this in the award of points below)

 

At the end of each bout the winner and loser must present themselves to the Baron and Baroness as well as their advisers for distribution of the winnings, at this time they will also have the opportunity to receive discretionary coins from the baroness ( detailed in the next section)

 

At the end of the bouts the combatants will count up the coins they have won and any additional discretionary coins and the person with greatest number will be the winner, if we end in a tie then we will have a best of 5 fights with the winner having to win 3 consecutive fights

 

Distribution of coins:

 

5 coins will be awarded on the completion of the bout to the winner.

1 coin will be removed from this total at the end of the fight for each limb taken by an opponent but only form the winner of the bout.

Each coin lost by the victor of the bout is given to the losing fighter (the person that took the

limbs).

 

As an example fighter A and fighter B square off, Fighter A wounds fighter B in the arm, fighting continues as if the wound did not occur, fighter B then wounds fighter A in the arm. Fighter A then wounds fighter B in the leg and fighter B kills fighter A with a valid blow to the head.

 

In this scenario Fighter B wins, however fighter B did not protect himself well so he has not won the entire 5 coins. Fighter B receives 3 coins 5 coins – 2 wounds (arm and leg) = 3 coins. The other ramification of this is that fighter A having lost the bout still receives 2 coins due to the wounds he delivered to fighter B. Fighter A does not lose a coin for his wounds because he lost the bout.

 

This system sets up a scenario where in some instances a fighter can lose the bout and still come out the victor in coin count, this encourages all fighters to be careful and protect themselves at all times and not just poke and pray, as well as it discourages anyone from simply sacrificing a limb to gain a kill. However while this “discourages” this behavior the fighters can still decide to do it (no system is perfect)

 

Discretionary coins:

 

The Baroness will be given a sack of coins for her use as discretionary awards, these can be given to fighter or not at the whim of her excellency they can be awarded for anything from chivalric action to impressing the baroness with the cut of their clothing or simply because the baroness feels like it. This is the great leveler, as discretionary the baroness can choose to do anything she likes the coins including influencing the outcome..

 

Format of the fighting:

I personally prefer to see all fighting styles represented by fighters and this is sure gauge of their true abilities in all forms, the one form I detest and which leads to the most sloppy fighting is Case or Florentine (2 rapiers)

 

The recommendation for this is that we have all fighters fight all fighters once (round robin) each fighter can choose their own weapon styles however each style must be used before the fighter can repeat a style. The 5 styles that will be used are:

Single Sword

Sword and Dagger

Sword and Buckler

Sword and Cloak

Sword and Baton or Cane

 

If there is a tie breaker then the tie breaking bouts will be fought with her excellencies weapon choice. This combat will require the attendance of her excellency for the entire time however I have been assured that the Autocrat will account for this in her scheduling of competitions. I as the outgoing Champion will attend her excellency and explain any oddities in the rapier fighting that she so desires or I will arrange for other advisers if she so pleases.

 

Baronial Archer Championship

Please make sure you read the the duties and obligations of a Champion. 

The Baronial Archer competition will take place Saturday morning. ALL entrants must present themselves before the Baron and Baroness at opening court on Saturday morning. 

The Boar's Hunt activites will be held on Saturday afternoon. HL Torn has a surprise in order. 

The range will be open on Sunday for shooting for scores. 

 

Baronial YAC Champion

 

 Youths from all three divisions are welcome to enter the tournament, however, the Baronial Champion will be chosen from the Dragon Division only for reasons of duty and responsibility.

For those who wish to enter, please inform me of your intention after sending your letter of intent (email) to the Baron or Baroness, (this is so I have a good idea of who will all be attending).

 

If you have questions regarding the letter of intent, please let me know.

 

Please find below the specific requirements and format for the YAC Tournament.

 

COMPETITION FORMAT


a) The entrants must attend morning court the day of the tournament and be prepared to present themselves to their Excellencies along with the other competitors when they are called forth for the invocation. 

 

b) The entrants must present themselves to the YAC Warden following court the day of the tournament to declare their intentions to enter the competition.

c) The entrants must have a parent or guardian present at all times during the competition.

d) The entrant must pass armor inspection and have a clear understanding of the rules of combat as set forth in the An Tir Book of Youth Armoured Combat.

e) It should be understood that youth champions, as opposed to adult champions, may not be considered officers of the SCA and shall have no corporate responsibilities.

f) The tournament will be fought in a round robin format. All combatants will be allowed to fight each other at least once. At the end, the two combatants with the highest ratio of wins to loses will fight in a separate "finals tournament" the format being the best two out of three.

g) The “Finals Tournament” will be a best out of three separate bouts. In the past, theses competitions have each featuring a different set of weapons; Sword & Shield, Great Swords & Glaves.  However, I will give the two finalists a choice as to which weapons they would like to use in the Finals bout.

 

Please Note: If used, the Great Weapons will be supplied to the combatants but it is expected they will bring their own sword & shield.

 

 

Baronial Equestrian Champion

 

Their Excellencies Steinolf and Sineidin, Baron and Baroness of Aquaterra, are pleased to announce the creation of a new Equestrian Championship. This first competition will be in the form of a quest, which officially begins at Aquaterra's All Champions/ Boars Hunt.


Scores from any equestrian contest held at any SCA event in the Knowne World will count towards the total accrued score. Competitors will need to get the Equestrian Marshal in Charge (EMIC) to verify their placing in the event, the event name/date, and the number of competitors, as this is part of the scoring calculations. Scores for the Championship must be submitted by noon Monday September 24, 2012 and the first Equestrian Champion of Aquaterra shall be announced and inducted during Evening Court at Banner War (Saturday Sept 29th).


Scoring Information:


Competitors get points based on their overall standing for an event anywhere in the SCA.:


1st place= 5 points x the number of competitors


2nd= 4 x # of competitors


3rd= 3 points x # of competitors


4th place= 2 points x # of competitors


5th place= 1 point x # of competitors


Just like in archery, the competitors score will be based on an average of their top three scores – this means that every candidate will need to compete in a minimum of three equestrian competitions, but the greater the number of events, the better the chance for a good score.

Eligibility: 

·        All entrants must be paid members of the SCA, Inc.


·        All entrants must be at least 18 years of age.


·        All entrants must present themselves in Opening Baronial Court on the first day of All Champions/Boars Hunt when the competitors for each competition are called forth, to proclaim their intent to enter the Aquaterra Championship and receive and Invocation.***


***The exception are those equestrians participating in the Barony of Madrone’s Lancer Trial - they may submit a formal Letter of Intent to Their Excellencies’ representative at that event (HL Marguerite fitz William) to be read on their behalf at the Invocation.


·        All entrants must submit proof of membership, modern and SCA names and complete contact information (e-mail if applicable and phone number) right after Opening Court (or with their Letter of Intent). Failure to provide proof of membership will result in immediate disqualification. Entrants must assume responsibility for reading the rules of the Championship and complying with all parts of those rules.
