    YES, THE CASTLE IS ON THE MOUNTAIN!




    TOURNAMENT DETAILS:
    - There will be one winner weekly for the Joust events.
    - Winner takes home 100k minimum!
    - Armor, weapons, and supplies will be provided.
    - You MUST bring a mount to compete or you cannot enter.
    - Participants pay an entry fee of 10k to enter either tournament.
    - Participants sign up and pay at the registration area on the third floor outside the jousting drag.
    - Participants are required to show up at 9:00pm Eastern time to register and get their equipment before the event starts.
    - A tournament ladder will be created based on the number of participants at each event and posted on the "Fight Knight Discord Server" by 9:30pm when the event starts.




    SECURITY:
    [​IMG]
    The Knights have contracted the Golden Gauntlet Mercenary Company for additional support in the Jousting Tournament! Mercenaries at their finest! To become a sell-sword see the link for their recruitment page above!





    HOW TO JOUST: MELEE ONLY
    [​IMG]

    1. Each jouster is fitted with armor, a lance (spear/bardiche/warhammer), a horse and 1 greater heal potion.
    2. Each jouster starts at opposing sides of the drag and sprints to the other, swinging as they pass each other.
    3. Each jouster must go the whole way to the end of the drag and may only run back once their opponent has reached the other side as well.
    4. This continues until a rider falls off his horse and a victor advances to the next round.


    See the example video here thanks to @Blair :





    REDS WELCOME AT YOUR OWN RISK!
    We do not permit combat outside of the jousts but can not GUARANTEE your safety or that you won't be statted by someone. We will do our best to keep all players civil at these events.

    Thanks!

    The joust should be fast paced and cheap to enter so hopefully lots of people show up. The prize for winning the tournament is a MINIMUM of either 20k cash or an item of equal or greater value. If it's a good turnout, we'll keep the entree fee 5K to joust but increase the prize value for sure. If 20 people sign up for the first event, that's 100k we collected so you can bet the prize will be far more than 20k ;)

    GUESTS ARE FREE! Only the jousters pay to compete!

    Gambling will be interesting to see how it goes or if anyone places bets. Being that the equipment is provided for you, it should even the playing field quite a bit for each jouster and make the gamble more... well, of a gamble.

    If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!

    Just show up! We will provide the jousters with armor and give them a selection of jousting weapons to choose from based on their skills (swords/mace/fencing) and provide a mount if they do not have one of their own (ethy's acceptable).

    Just remember - Jousters must show up early at 9:00 to sign up and get their armor/weapon for the joust.

    Hope to see ya there! :D
