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.

Sir James Kristof
Principality Marshal

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!

Juan Carlos Castillo de Guzman
Rapier Champion of the Mists

The Mists Archery Championship

I am very happy to be able to once again invite the archers of The Mists to compete to become Archery Champion!

This competition will include a standard Royal Round, plus the Society Seasonal Archery Challenge. There will be a sudden death tie-breaker, if needed.

Randal of Camusfearna
Mists Archery Champion

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!

Mists Spring Coronet 2022 @ Skyline Wilderness Park
Apr 1 – Apr 3 all-day

Greetings unto the populace of the West from Da’ud and Moira, Prince and Princess of the Mists:

We approach the time for selection of our heirs. The format for the Spring Mists Coronet will be double elimination, best 2 out of 3 per round. Fourth round will be fought with mace and shield. Finals will be best 3 out of 5, and should finals go beyond 3 passes, bouts 4 and 5 will be fought with mace and shield.

Their Highnesses will also be holding the Mists Rapier Championship at this event, with tournament formatting to be updated shortly.

Due to the continuing uncertainty regarding the ongoing COVID Pandemic, we are requiring that either fighter or consort be a resident of The Mists. We also request each fighter/consort pair to declare their intent to Us prior to Coronet at royals@mists.westkingdom.org

The event will host the Mist Silver Muse Arts and Sciences competition: “Arts and Science though the Ages”.
This completion will be composed of two parts, one for early period, and one for later period entries. The Early Period will be 8th century, and the Later Period will be 13th century. Artisans can create clothing, jewelry, stamping from the 8th!  Or sing a song, show a jewel from the 13th! Documentation is required, but does not need to be elaborate. Silver Muse competition will contain a teaching element at some point, so why not start early and arrange a class.
For questions regarding the Silver Muse competition, or if you would like to teach a class, contact Lady Rue Payne at Rew@westkingdom.org or via FB messenger @RutheMiller.

Their Highnesses will also be encouraging populace participation for The Princess’s Social, Target Archery, and Games and Socializing on the Tourney Field on Saturday evening after the Tournament.

As autumn is nearly upon us and my year of service draws to a close, it
brings me great joy to announce that Mists Bardic will be held at the Santa
Cruz Masonic Lodge on October 22, 2022!

Come and join us as we gather to celebrate the Bardic Arts and witness the
competition to determine the next Bard of the Mists, the best job in the
Knowne World.

The competition will be compromised of the traditional five rounds:

  • Period Piece
  • Piece in a Period Style
  • Masterwork
  • Sitting Bard’s Choice: Inclusiveness and Welcome
  • Five Words from a Hat

Please provide brief documentation for the Period Piece and the Piece in a
Period Style. In keeping with recent changes to our Society guidelines, we
welcome styles from bardic traditions from all pre-1601 cultures world-wide.
It is preferred that all pieces presented, with the exception of the Period
Piece, be the competitor's own work. Auditors are welcome.

In the interest of protecting the health of all attendees to the best of our
