Greetings unto the list heralds and list runners of the East from Lucien de Wyntere, Troubadour Herald of our fair and glorious Kingdom. Our most noble Basilissa and Basileus are holding Their Armored Champions tournament at Sommer Draw in the lands of Bergental.

Thank you in advance!
Today saw the armored and rapier combatants of the East, Middle and Allies take to the filed in the epic confrontation that is the field battle. The armored fighters fought a best of five scenario with the East taking three of the five. The rapier fighters engaged in a best of three scenario with the Middle Kingdom and allies taking all three battles.
Their Majesties knighted Ivan Valfrekr Hroereksson and Wilham de Broc on the battlefield. Following the rapier field battle They inducted Robert Earlson and Sorcha Dochair into the Order of the Silver Rapier.
Several Eastern fencers took the field this afternoon dressed as super heroes.
At Her Majesty’s whim, a Youth Rose Tournament was held before Crown Tournament this past weekend. For those unfamiliar with youth combat, it is run much in the style of adult combat. Each fighter was sponsored by a Lady of the Rose, or a few Ladies of the Rose. The tourney was run as a bear pit. When a fighter won a bout he brought his Rose or Roses a rose, and returned to the list to fight the next combatant. The honor and chivalry of the young fighters was so inspiring that it caused Baroness Aneleda to set words to paper in commemoration.
