Battlegames / Tourneys: Times and dates are not being posted as we are still too far out from the event. However, as we get closer, the dates and times will be put in.

****Iron Owl Tourney - Competitors will have 1 hour, minus 5 minutes per Order of the Owl they have, to complete a legal sword from materials provided. At the end of this one hour, there will be a half hour bear pit style tournament where your sword must remain Amtgard legal to continue fighting. At the end of this time, the contestant with the most kills will be declared the winner. There will be no swapping or repairing of weapons allowed during the fighting portion.
****Top shot Event 1 – Targets will be set at various distances. Each competitor will be allowed to carry 12 projectiles with them; if one is dropped, fired, or thrown it cannot be picked up again. When a target is hit, they may progress to the next target. Competitor with the fastest time wins. In the event of a tie, the competitor with the most remaining projectiles wins. All top shot events will be awarded 7 points for first place, 5 points for 2nd, 3 points for third, and 1 point to each contestant who completes the course. Points will be totaled at the conclusion of Saturday’s event for final standings
****Death Ball – Full class shatter game, no death count. Captains of each team are immune to the death ball; for everyone else, it is an engulfing effect that kills through invulnerabilities and severs spirits.
****No Champs tourney - Double elimination open weapon tourney. Only people with 5 or fewer Orders of the Warrior are eligible to enter. Top 3 placing competitors will receive invitations to the 6 and over tourney
****Militia pot of gold game – 3 teams, each with their own cauldron to fill. No class militia game, all equipment rules in effect. The central pot of gold will start with gold, which players may remove and carry in their hands, they may not use any sort of implement such as pouch or bucket to transport gold. They will have a 60 count death and must drop any gold they are carrying when they die. First team to fill their cauldron of gold wins.
****Top Shot Event 2 - Relay races. Competitors will form into 5 person teams - each teammate may carry 5 projectiles. There will be a large rack of many targets, the first member of each team will begin at the firing line, and take all 5 shots. He/she must then return to the rally line before the next teammate may move to the firing line. After returning to the rally line, they may gather spent ammunition before reclaiming their position in the team line. Teams will be timed - the first team to hit all of the targets on the target rack gets first place, second and third accordingly.
****Lizard Hunt – St. Patrick was celebrated for driving the serpents from Ireland. We will make ready to drive them from the Celestial Kingdom as well. This will be a full class shatter battle - with lizard men, dragons, basilisks and the like will on the monsters side.

Seriously......
Sprang War is an excellent opportunity to get some hard core ditching in.
the caliber of shtick will range from noobs at one end to the warlords at the other.

I am always more than satisfied with my ditching opportunities and always come away with an improvement in a number of areas.

That Iron Owl battle sounds awesome. But I guess the 1 hour time limit means you can't use any adhesives, right? That might make its ability to translate to Bel somewhat limited. A great idea nonetheless.

Despite the fact that Loptard supports this event and his generally quiet demeanor, this event really is one of the best events to get your fight on. Other things that should be on your schedule are Rakis, Salt War, and Clan.

Feast of Mars is an up and coming event with great peeps, and an awesome theme; normally happens around the end of Sept, early Oct.

So in a twisted turn of events, turns out I will be running the Spring War events on Saturday. Below is an updated schedule for the saturday games, hope to see some of you out there.

Saturday – As it will be St Patrick’s day, all combatants will receive 1 natural protect per life if they are wearing at least 50% green in the full class games. The green must be visible from at least 100 feet away to count. When struck the player must declare “Luck of the irish!” to indicate that this protect has been used.

10:00 Four Horseman tournament: Teams of Four will compete in a full militia tournament. The tournament will be single elimination and bracketed. Projectiles will be considered "spent" once fired or thrown, and may not be reused for the duration of the round. All teams are required to have their armor inspected prior to entering the tournament. Players will be given a card with their name and the reeves armor rating on it. These cards must be submitted to the Head Tournament reeve prior to beginning of each round.

1:00 Taste the Rainbow – The rainbow bridge has treasure on the other side, if you fall off the rainbow, unless you can fly, you are dead and out of range for a summon. There will be multiple paths to the other side of the Rainbow. There will be no magic classes allowed in this game. Each team will have leprechauns capable of teleporting them to desired locations. The leprechaun must accompany them to the desired location and return to base. The leprechaun is only allowed to teleport one player at a time. Player lives are set at unlimited with a respawn time of 30 seconds at their home base. Time limit is 1 hour. Capturing team must be in possession of their pot of gold to score, game resets each time the pot of gold is captured.

4:00 Shamrock Blues – 2 teams, capture and control territory. There will be several shamrock marked objects out in the field. Each team must have control of the object to score points. Points are scored by flying your flag over the object. The object is considered contested when two flags are flying within 10 feet of the object, and no points are gained. Points are gained at the rate of 1 point every minute for each object under their control. The game will be militia based, last 1 hour with 60 second death counts.

6:00 Top Shot Event 4- Increasing range distance stationary shot. Each contestant will have 3 shots at each range increment until they are eliminated. Stationary target will begin at 40 feet, As long as there are 2 remaining competitors, the range will be increased by 10 feet each round.
