Event details
Hark!  Is that yon horn I hear, heralding in the hunters to come and celebrate the season? (Why yes… yes it is!)

Whom are they escorting on the road to Ruantallan? I see wagons and horses, men, women and children… a veritable parade of...….  Wait? Could it be? Their Majesties are possibly enroute to visit our fair lands?

Oyez!  Oyez!

Come spend a day of rejoicing in the plenty that the fall harvest has given us, welcome back the warriors from their long journey to lands foreign and near in defense of our homes and happiness.  Witness the majesty of… Their Majesties!

To honour those who reign our great principality, and in respect due to the Crowns of the East Kingdom, the humble Lady Juliana and her illustrious staff will endeavor to provide you all with a hearty day board in the Viking and Anglo Saxon styles.  Feast in the later day is to honour Herne the Hunter, as only Ruantallan can do, and show Their Majesties how Ruantallanites celebrate.

Heavy Tournament

Please contact Baron William Lancton longtinp1@gmail.com with your intention to fight and your Herald's name.
There are showers in the men's and ladies room at the site.

As usual all fighters must have a Herald to Declare, Sing, or Shout you in the combat list.  if you do not have such a person I am sure that one could make him or herself available for a fee.

Play With Your Food!!!

Each bouts will be to the death, as per normal, but a point system will be in place to augment the skill level of the fighters.
Each kill = 1 point
Each limbs taken = 1 point
For example fighter 1 takes his opponents leg and an arm, but fighter 2 manages to kills fighter 1 with a blow to the head.  The score at the end of the bout will be.
Fighter 1 = 2 points
Fighter 2 = 1 point.
All weapon forms are allowed.

Fighters and prospective Heralds! 

For a long time Herne the Hunter has had a Heralding competition to announce the fighters into the ring.  This year will continue the tradition!  Fighters, please find a person willing to Herald you in to the tournament.  People willing to Herald fighters in to the tournament, please contact the fighters. 

This year's competition will require the Herald's to need a story, a song or a poem to announce their great fighter onto the battlefield.  This is to draw in the crowd and get them involved with the tourney.  The Herald's purpose is entice the crowd into wanting their fighter to win.  Think of the movie "A Knight's Tale" for inspiration.  The bigger the better! 

Remember that the King and Queen will be present and your display should reflect this. 

A&S Display for their majesties amusement.

Artisans across our great Barony, and beyond our borders!  We invite you to display your most excellent works for the enjoyment of their Majesties at the Herne the Hunter the !  Your contribution need not be new, just done by you!  No documentation is necessary, but a short description would help all enjoy! 
Please contact Lady Katherine so we know how much room will be required!  (seneschal@seashire.eastkingdom.org)
