This year Wastekeep is hosting a Newcomer's Forum to help answer your questions and help you feel at home in the Barony of Wastekeep. The Forum will start at 11:30 with a Fighter Appreciation talk to initiate you to the ways of the tournament. After that there will be Evolution of a Persona; Etiquette - to include forms of address, camping, who's who; Court - what is it all about; How to get more involved; with Rapier Fighter Appreciation on Sunday before the Rapier Tournament. All times after 11:30 are approximate as discussion will determine the length of each session.
Wastekeep has been selected to participate in the Heavy Tourney Circuit this year which will be held during the champions tourney. Fighters must decide and declare at list signup if they want to fight for Wastekeep Champion or for the Tourney Circuit. Due to the rules of the Tourney Circuit Challenge, fighters must choose one or the other but not both. All fighters will fight each other with the highest placing individual in each category winning their tournament.
Friday evening we are hosting a tournament for heavy fighters who have never won a Tourney.
Newcomers Forums will be held throughout the day Saturday along with a Family Activity.
