Honor War

May 02, 2014 to May 04, 2014

Pullman, WA & Moscow, ID

Autocrat: Phelan Tolusmidr

The College of Lyonsmarche is under siege!  Dread foreign mercenaries have been hired by Agents Unknown and have descended upon our fair lands in search of lentil plunder!  Hearing of the besieging hordes, Baron Styrkarr of Wastekeep has dispatched word to His Magesty King Eirik Daegarsson requesting aid in coursing out the rampaging hordes.  Rumors are that other forces from the north may be approaching – be they friend or foe?  Come all good peoples to Honor War to save our lentils!  In addition to our heavy and rapier war scenarios, come compete to be our next bardic, arts and sciences, brewing, archery, and/or rapier champion.  And let us not forget our younger members – there will be a youth armored tournament on Sunday.

Five-Man Melee Tournament
News reaches our ears from the neighboring Kingdom of Artemisia, warriors are called to stand shield to shield with their brothers & sisters and test both Honor and skill upon the field. The name of the 5-man melee tourney will be called "The Battle of Five" The list for the tourney sign up at Honor War will start on Friday night in the Brotherhood Camp. We will have armor inspections and tourney rules at 9:30 am, with fighting to start at 10 am. The teams will be made of 5 men each with no archery or thrown weapons, two knights max per team. Each team will have 2 shields, 1 spear, 1 mass weapon & 1 weapon of choice. Each team will also need a voice herald to announce them onto the field. The scenarios will be fought on Open, Fort & Bridge fields, with the finals fought on a broken/flag scenario. For more info, and a look into the circuit rule and field designs check out our Facebook page called "Battle of Five". ~ Sir Dahoud

Rapier Brawl 1) A BRIDGE TOO FAR
Setup) Wastekeep and Wealdsmere shall take up positions on either side of the bridge, wishing to claim the crossing for their side, they shall battle till all enemies lay lifeless at their feet.

War points awarded to the winner
Setup) In the middle of the field shall be placed the parts to two canons, one per side (2 wheels, 1 axel, 1 barrel, 1 bag of powder). Each side will need to secure the parts of their cannon and bring it back to their setup area. Only one piece can be in transit to your side at a time. If you are killed while transporting a piece, drop it at your feet and head to the rez point. You are not allowed to touch the other sides pieces. After all pieces are assembled, fire your cannon by yelling loudly, BOOM! The side that fires their cannon first is the winner.
We will play two rounds of this, with and without RBG’s.

Arts and Sciences Championship
Come all ye artisans and craftspeople to vie for the honor of Lyonsmarche A&S Champion! In addition to the Championship, there will be prizes for Best Documentation, Populace Choice, and Most Unusual Entry. Each entry must be accompanied by a sheet telling what the entry is and who is entering it. Additional documentation is strongly encouraged, but not required. Oral presentations to the judges (see schedule for time) are also encouraged but not required. I hope to see a lot of entries so we can show everyone what a crafty bunch of people we are!
Homebrew Championship
Homebrewing Championship - Tova says that one of the requirements is that you use yeast that ferments to make your homebrew whether it be beer, wine, or mead.

Bardic Championship

So too  will be tested your prowess of merriment and music, around the fires of the evening on Saturday shall a new Champion be cheered and cajoled into their office. This year there will be a Bravosi Bardic Competition, with crowd response during each presentation being the deciding factor for victory. In other words, the bards must make the populous laugh, cry, groan or sigh, etc to come out champion.
