Pennsic 31 (2002)

(As reported by Warder Maximilian der Zauberer)

For those of you not in attendance you missed out on some awesome rapier combat during the Pennsic Rapier Championship Tourney last Friday. During the 2.5-hour delay (it was scheduled to start at 4:00) the pairings of the 25 champions were made (20 from each kingdom and 5 allies).

Each bout was to be fought one at a time in what was essentially a single elimination tourney. So whichever side got 13 wins first, would be the victor. After the victor was determined, all the remaining pairings would take the field and fight it out.

Both His and Her Majesties from both the East and the Middle stayed for the entire tourney even though Great Court started before the tourney ended.

Here’s how the tourney played out.

First the King’s Champions fought. Duke Sir Ragnvaldr Jonsson defeated Don Nigel of Castle West (1-0)

Secondly the Queens Champions fought - Lady Lee de Cormack was unable to fight due to a knee injury. Duke Sir Palymar of the Two Baronies took her place but was defeated by Don Antonio Patriquin. (1-1)

To continue in order, Lord Ramiro Nunez defeated Baroness Mercedes de Calafia. (2-1)

Yours Truly, Warder Maximilian der Zauberer defeated Lady Lillias of Campingtom. (3-1)

Master Sir Ixtilixochitl Cacique de los Indios was defeated by Don Alexandre Lerot D’Avigne. (3-2)

Warder Colin MacNish was defeated by Don Arioch the Quick. (3-3)

Warder Christian Furnier was defeated by Count Killdare Silverwolf (Ealdormere). (3-4)

So with only one bout left, the east was victorious. For the final bout Lord Lleng “The Groupie” Craidd defeated Lord Malcolm Bowman.

Final count 12 Mid – 13 East. Whew! What a tourney!

Their Majesties of the East and Middle complimented us on our skill and prowess, but especially on our camaraderie. There was not a single bout that was contested and just about every bout began and ended with either a handshake or a hug between the combatants. After Their Majesties left, there was more handshaking, hugging, back pounding and drink sharing amongst and between the 2 teams.

The Pennsic Rapier Championship Tourney is definitely, in this humble reporter’s eyes, a tourney of peers.

Pennsic 32 (2003)

The Pennsic 32 Rapier Champions Tournament began at 4:15 pm on Thursday August 14th. It was a random draw Heroic Champions style tourney. Each kingdom fielded 30 rapier combatants. Each combatant fought one bout, drawn at random, except the first bout which traditionally matches the 2 Kingdom Rapier Champions. This year however, since the MidRealm didn't have one rapier champion but 6 (one per region), the team nominated the team captain to fight the first bout. The kingdom with the most wins was declared victorious. For double kills, each kingdom scored a loss. They were not refought.

Midrealm takes Rapier Champions War Point as reported by the Pennsic Independent [1]

Submitted By Peregrine Fairchylde Staff Writer, Pennsic Independent

On a field crowded with Dons, White Scarves, Bronze Rings and others from the cream of the rapier community, it took 28 bouts to determine the victor in the Rapier Champions War Point. But when Warder Andrew Blackwood MacBain the Purple slew Lord Malcolm Bowman, that pushed the Midrealm to 16 victories, a majority among the 30 planned bouts.

The two sides split the remaining two bouts, giving the Middle Kingdom a 17-13 victory in the battle.

Using a heroic champions format, with each side taking turns selecting a fighter and the other choosing one from their team whose skills would best match, the fighting went on for more than two hours with only the occasional cloud cover to offer shade from the heat. However, spirits on both sides remained high, with shouts of encouragement and surprisingly well-organized cheerleaders egging the participants on.

The combatants being culled from the premier rapier artistes of the Known World, the fights were not wild and flashy affairs for the most part, though some had their moments. One of the more spectacular pitted two allied fencers: Baron Aedan Aylwyn, Provost of Atlantia, fighting for the Midrealm squared off with Don Robert McPharland of Ansteorra for the East. With the crowd loudly urging them to feats of valor, they clashed again and again until Don Robert scored a touch on Baron Aedan's leg.

"Do you wish to continue?" inquired Don Robert as Aedan settled to his knees.

"Yes!" riposted Baron Aedan. "You've given me better wounds than that!"

"An old gentleman in my kingdom once told me I get one lucky shot a day," Robert replied. "And I think that was it."

Don Robert threw a number of shots at Baron Aedan's sword arm, and after His Excellency repeated blocked them with his quillions the Don suggested, "If you would turn the bars a little bit, that would really facilitate this."

Finally, Don Robert landed a thrust to slay Baron Aedan and take the victory.
