    Summary: Join <The Templars> for a Halloween themed single-elimination jousting tournament. Test your mettle against others of noble heart. The winner may challenge the existing tournament champion Waldomar for his place of honor!
    **Please note this event has a special twist! Participants are asked to attend a brief 'orientation and entry rehearsal one hour prior to the tournament. Rehearsals also available on Saturday prior to. Participation is not mandatory – but it will make the event much smoother.

    Single elimination jousting tournament.

    Grand Prize: Half of the entry fee pot total, and a mount from the Templar's stables. (To be decided between the winner and organizers at the end of the event).

    The tournament will be overseen by her Grace Lady Kaetlynn, Priestess of Mariel-Taun, and the Lord Lovand, Master of Arms and Commander of the Templars. Their ruling in all matters will be considered final for the course of the tournament.

    Rider must be noble of heart and spirit – lineage nobility not required, but will be announced where appropriate. Please see our house bard to ensure your proper lineage is announced.
    Rider must bring their own mount. All mounts must be well cared for and in good health.
    At the signal, riders will gallop towards each other on the right hand side of the the barrier, carrying only a lance and shield at the ready.
    An unhorsing will end a match.
    All riders may bring up to three squires into the lists to aid them.
    Once eliminated, a rider may not re-enter the lists, unless called back by their Graces.
    There will be three passes, or until a rider is unhorsed.
    Scoring is as follows:
    1 point for breaking a lance upon the chest between saddle and helm.
    2 points for breaking on the helmet or lance base.
    3 points for a shattered lance.
    5 points for a tip to tip strike.
    10 points for unhorsing your opponent – this is also an instant win in your match.
    The tournament judges are the final arbitrators in all things.

    OOC Rules:
    All competitors must be registered prior to the start of the event. And pay the 10 platinum fee.
    You will be called 'on deck' prior to your fight. Failing to show up when called will disqualify you from competing. Should you go LD (Link dead) or log out during the tournament and not return within the staging time, your turn will be forfeit. We will do our best to give you time to return, but reserve the right to proceed. No entry fees will be returned.
    During your joust you will be grouped with the tournament organizers in a raid. If there are more participants than slots you will be cycled in and out as needed. When called to “Lay on!” you will charge down the lists. At the half way mark you will /roll (1-100) the tournament organizers will call our your scoring and result. You may emote or shout/taunt/speak however you wish during this time so long as it is in line with the result. You will then proceed when called to 'lay on' into your next advance, you will ride three passes. Scoring will work as this:
    A roll of 1-5 = you have faltered and dropped your own lance. You will score no points this round, your opponent will score their points normally.
    A roll of 6-50 = 1 point equivalent of a strike of breaking a lance.
    A roll of 51-80 = 2 points, and a broken lance.
    A roll of 81-95 = 3 points a shattered lance.
    A roll of 95-100 = 10 points, an unhorsing.
    A tie = a tip to tip strike earns 5 points, unless both roll 1 (both will fail) or tie between 95-100's (a double unhorsing), in a rare tie and be calculated on points to that point. If there is still a tie, a single pass will be permitted to decide a victor.
    The winner will proceed to the next round against another previous winner. This elimination will continue until the finals, at which point the champion of the joust will be announced and celebrated. The award will be provided.
    In the case there is an uneven number of participants, the highest scoring elimination from the existing round will be permitted to joust again to fill the ranks.

    Prize: A mount from the stables of the Templars (to be decided by winner and organizers at time of victory) and half of the tournament entry fee.

    Entry Fee: A modest fee of 10 platinum coins* is requested of all participants wishing to compete within the tournament. The sum of fees collected will go towards the tournament purse, future event prizes and our operational costs for building tournament specific dims.

    *- If you are a new player, or truly can't afford 10p but still wish to compete, please talk to an organizer.
