On Saturday the 2nd Day of September, in the year A.S.52, there will be such crowds of people in Catteden, it will be marvelous to see them. At the pleasure of Their Noble Excellencies Konrad and Iosobail, Baron and Baroness of the Barony of Red Spears, combat will be held on foot to determine their next Champion of Armoured Combat. Let all princes, lords, barons, knights, squires, Captains of the Red Company, Serjants of the Red Company, men-at-arms of the Kingdom of the Middle, and all other known world kingdoms, who are not banished or enemies of the king our lord, be invited to join in this tournament.
All combats shall be conducted under the Rules of the List and Conventions of Combat of the Society and Kingdom of the Middle. Combatants shall be appropriately armed and armored and present themselves to the marshals as such before the tournament. All combatants shall bear themselves with good grace, to advance the cause of chivalry rather than the base spirit of victory. Each combatant shall comport themselves bearing mutual responsibility for themselves and for their opponent. The safety of your opponent is your responsibility. Those combatants that are present to vie for the title and position of Red Spears Baronial Armoured Champion shall present themselves before the Tournament to Their Excellencies to declare their intent to serve the Barony in this office for the next year.
Those combatants fighting for the Championship shall each face Lady Aislin de Tanet, the current Red Spears Armoured Champion, in single combat. As time and our bodies permit we will then meet as tenans as many of the other combatants as possible. Each combatant will then strive in noble combat verses all other challengers in the tournament, both those fighting for the Championship and those fighting for their personal renown and the honour of their consort; if ten or fewer combatants take the field then each shall in turn fight every combatant present three times; The victor of two or more of the three fights will receive a point. Ties will be re-fought. If the number of challengers is over ten then the field will be divided by chance into pools and once having fought each combatant in their pool three times, the top combatants from each pool will advance to a final pool to determine victory in the tournament. There will be a prize for the winner of the tournament, whether they be the new champion or one of the other challengers. All noble Lords and Ladies of the gallery are also encouraged to bring personal prizes and tokens to award to which combatants they feel advanced the cause of chivalry this day.
