Gather around friends, and I will tell you of the Grand Tournaments in the Shire-March of Grimfells' event: The Crusade to Grimfells.
Four tournaments will be held on the lists to test the strength of arm and skill of combat.
The First is for our newest fighters (no AoA fighting awards). A shield awaits the winner in this test of arms.
The Second is for our Fyrd, to show their prowess (AoA and below). A spear to the victor to help in their journeys.
The Third is for our Huscarls, to show why they carry The Axe (GoA and below). A fitting weapon of destruction awarded to the victor.
Our final tournament is for our Chivalry to teach a lesson of tough love to our up and coming fighters (all fighters welcome). The victor will receive a single link of chain which will serve as a reminder of the burden of the peerage.
Go, now, and prepare for The Crusade to Grimfells.
