From the Principality Marshal
It is my pleasure as the Mists Marshal to announce the format of the coronet lists for their Highnesses.
On September 11th the tournament shall be fought in a Double Elimination type tournament. Invocation and Challenges will be done as normal, but there will be a change to the fighting format within the tournament.
The fights shall be of two (2) counted blows to demonstrate victory rather than one killing blow.
Good shots to the legs and arms shall be counted as good blows but the fighter will simply acknowledge them and continue fighting unhindered.
After each acknowledged good blow there will be a separation of the fighters to reset; not a hold, and not to be reinitialized by the marshals, only a momentary pause to clarify the blow to the onlookers.
Double kills shall be refought from the beginning immediately, resetting all blows counted to 0.
While nobody dies in a counted blows tournament, it is specifically requested by their Highnesses that the fighter kneel or show some visible deference upon defeat, so the results of the fight are clear to those watching.
This will be our first tournament in over a year so please come to inspection early, ready for internal helmet inspection of padding.

From the Principality Rapier Champion
To the most wonderful populace of this, our glorious Principality of the Mists, do I send joyous tidings!
The plague which has swept across these lands is waning, and we shall soon meet again. On the weekend of September 10-12, we shall reunite under the banner of our great sea-wolf, to make merry and find who shall be worthy of representing our principality on the rapier field.
With the permission of their Highnesses, I have come to announce the format of the tournament! We will be fighting a round robin, should our numbers not exceed 10 in the lists. Should we draw more fighters, a standard double elimination will ensue in its stead. Standard rules of the lists will be followed, including for blows, and all bouts shall be best 2 out of 3. I
hope to see all of you wonderful friends there!

Arts and Sciences
Oyez, oyez! Your attention is requested! Arts & Sciences at Coronet wants YOU! Come show off the projects that kept you going during the plague quarantine! Bring your best, bring your attempts, bring your crafts, bring your designs — let’s highlight all arts and sciences with an amazing display!
The Silver Muse will not begin at this event so that everyone has plenty of time to research the upcoming competitions and prepare. You will find details for the individual competitions on our Principality website — start dates will be announced!
So help us start A&S off right in our Principality’s reopening event! Display will be from just after first court til just before last court at the A&S pavilion. If you would like to teach a class please let me know. I’m sure many of us would enjoy some in person lessons!
