The last of the Pennsic war points were decided today with the armored castle battles, siege weapons competition, and the end of the populace archery war points. The East won the majority of the six points for the castle battles as well as six of the nine points of the populace archery war point. The Middle won the siege weapons war point.
Unofficial reports indicate that the East Kingdom won the war by 3 points.
EDITED TO ADD: The full points spread is now available at the Pennsicwar website. The East won with 25 points to the Midrealm’s 20.
The Province of Malagentia recently announced the schedule of classes for the Heavy List University event, being held this Saturday, April 12th in Eliot, Maine. Full details (including class times, event directions, lunch information, event location, and cost) can be found in the official East Kingdom announcement, or on the Malagentian website.
Classes include ‘Intermediate Sword and Shield’ (taught by Duke Kenric aet Eastseaxe), ‘Historiacal Polearm techniques’ (taught by Duke Vissevald Selkirkson), ‘Movement, Measure and Power in Armored Combat’ (taught by Duke Lucan von Drakenkalue), ‘Two Sword’ (taught by Master Julien de la Pointe), as well as classes taught by Sir Ankara Lig Niki, Syr Kyppyn Kirkcaldy, Baron Matthew Moraveous Avdenmork, Lord Tiernana, and Lord William Ravenhair. The day will also include a demonstration of historical cut and thrust techniques.
While the field battle is the dramatic centerpiece of Pennsic, the woods battles are possibly more loved by the combatants themselves. Many appreciate the additional challenges that combat without sight lines bring. Strategies must be drawn up differently, tactics must be executed with precision, and moments of heroic combat take place continually throughout the battle. In a dramatic day of combat both the heavy and rapier armies took to the woods of Pennsic for a series of war point battles.
Our sources tell us that the East won all woods battle war points for both the heavy and rapier combat.
Reports are coming in that in many battles this year at Pennsic the Eastern side is fielding a significantly larger force than the Midrealm side. This was reportedly the case in these woods battles.

Today I write you a letter of portent announcing that the Bhakail Champions & Commons event is to be held on Sunday, August 18th, 2013 beginning at 11am and continuing until 6pm. I also carry words from Their Excellencies’ Martial Champions:
Lady Zhelana Tomeslavitsa hails all who seek the honor of becoming the next Rattan Champion of Bhakail and summons them to attend her tourney. The format for the fighting will be determined by the number of competitors. Those who seek out this great honor will receive points not only for each victorious bout on the list field, but also points for any display of the Arts & Sciences, be it armor or embroidery, or any other Art or Science the combatant favors to show the mighty skill of the would-be-champion off the field, as well as points for displays of the fighter’s personal heraldry, for heraldic display is greatly admired by Their Excellencies. In addition, Their Excellencies will also award points for chivalrous behavior both on and off the list field that day, for their champion must not only be a skilled competitor, but also an honorable one. If a competitor seeks out the aid of a herald or a bard to cry them on to the list field at the start of the tourney, or they herald themselves in, this will also be a way for them to win a higher score from Their Excellencies of Bhakail. Their Excellencies Mael Eoin & Ysmay will make their decision as to who will be Their next Rattan Champion based on both the tourney results and the merits of each competitor as outlined above, for a champion of Bhakail is chivalrous, mighty, and talented.
Lord Davius St. Jacques sends word to all who seek great acclaim as Rapier Champion of Bhakail to attend his tourney. There will be a fast-paced Round Robin to determine point values of each competitor. Each competitor’s points will be equal to the number of victorious bouts in the round robin plus one point for a Silver Rapier and two points for a Golden Rapier. Following the Round Robin, there will be a Challenge Round, where the victor of each bout receives points equal to the value of their bested opponent, plus a bonus for their chosen weapons form with single sword worth 4 points, defensive offhand and two-hander being worth 3 points, dagger worth 2 points, and case worth one bonus point.
