    Announcing the Iron Sword Joust

    On the 5th day of October, at the Iron Sword in Yew, Felucca, I will be hosting a joust that will begin at approximately 7:00 PM PST. The joust is a game of chance and a test of skill for those that seek to challenge their mettle and virtue. The basic rules will be inscribed below. If you seek to participate, post below or contact me by PM or ICQ (# 77945876), stating the name of your character, and the color (if any) you wish to don.

    Prizes: The winner of the joust shall receive 5 million gold and a trophy as proof of their victory. Gold generously provided by Governor Kirthag.

    Rules: Books detailing the rules will be available at the event, and may also be acquired upon request. The simple version of the rules is inscribed here.

    -Platemail armor with face-covering helm at 70 resist, must be plain-hued.
    -Can wear cloak and/or covering (tunic surcoat sash kilt) of preferred hue.
    -Lance with no qualities except "Use Best Weapon Skill" and 40% damage increase.
    -Normal Weapon of knight's choice for the duel (Use Best Weapon Skill is permitted).
    -Jewelry of the knight's choosing is permitted.
    -No talismans.

    -Consists of two parts, joust and duel.
    -Player must win both to be victorious.
    -If both players are dismounted, winner of the duel is victor.
    -Players can heal only when dismounted. Victor of joust can choose to dismount and heal when he wishes.
    -Duel ends when a player is down to 1/4 of his health and yields. Death is not permitted.
    -If a player dies, the judge determines who was at fault, and who won the duel. If a player fails to yield, he could be at fault. On the other hand, if a player ignores a yield or fails to back off, he could be at fault.
    -All special moves except infecting strike, shadow strike, and disarm are allowed.
    -No magery, necromancy, chivalry, bushido, ninjitsu, mysticism, or spellweaving. No magic.
    -No potions.

    For any questions regarding the nature of the competition, either contact me or post below.

    The Iron Sword is located on the northern coast of the Deep Forest, approximately northeast of Empath Abbey in Felucca. It can be accessed safely via a teleporter at the All Yew Need shop located directly north of Empath Abbey in Trammel.
