Bashing with Bacchus
September 26, 2015
Barony of Black Diamond
Bacchus is known among men as the god of wine and revelry. Sheltered in the mountains of Black Diamond, we host Bacchus in all his glory as we revel in good wine, good company, and good competition on the field.
Newcomers welcome!! This is a newcomers friendly event, if you know someone that has always wondered about what you do, invite them information and accommodations for newcomers available Troll, newcomers need not be worried about garb.
Martial Activities: Bacchus wields a staff which can grant blessings upon his followers or can be used to smite those who defy him. In his honor, we host a pole arm tourney in combination with a Bedford points tourney for the armored fights. Tourney winners will continue on as the captains of the melee.
Following all of the above scenarios there will be a five-man, unbelt tourney. So create your teams and come ready to take the field against other teams of your peers. Don't have a team but want to take part in this, don't worry. While fought as a tourney format this is, above all, a chance to build teams of people/weapons combinations that work best together.
Our rapier contingent will be pleased to find plenty of opportunities as well. There is a Bedford Points Tourney, a Warlord Tourney, and, for those who want even more fighting, a ruins battle planned for the day.
Let us not forget target archery! There will be an archery range with plenty of themed targets just begging to be shot full of holes.
