April Dessert Revel: Armored Combat Tournament

Their Excellencies Crispin and Gianna, fifth Baron and Baroness of the Cleftlands, cordially invite you to their spring Cleftlands Armored Combat Tournament. This tournament will be held on Wednesday, April 24th, 2019 at St. John of the Cross located at 140 Richmond Rd, Euclid, OH 44143 starting no later than 8:00 PM. All authorized armored combatants are encouraged to participate, regardless of rank, station, or location.

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Middle Kingdom, all attendees are invited to come their finest attire. Consider this an early chance to show off garb that’s normally too nice to wear outside of coronations or crown tournaments! If competing, please arrive early enough to make your intentions known at the list table as well as reporting in to the heralds who will not only announce you and your consort, but help you process into the tourney by Order of Precedence. All combatants must show their identification, authorization, and membership cards when signing in.

Revelers are encouraged to swing by the gallery to get expert commentary*, bring and enjoy some nibbles, and enter a friendly wager on our squares-style “medieval” grids. Submit tokens or largesse** (no real money or alcohol) to reserve a square. When the final 8 are decided, names of those combatants will be put into the squares at random, so you never know who you’re going to get! Cheer on your contestants, and if you get the square that matches the final results, you’ll win the grand prize. Gifts for runners-up will also be awarded.

* Volunteer commentator(s) welcome! Please see Gianna or Claricia for details.
** Largesse collected will be added to the Cleftlands gift basket supplies. These supplies will be used for kingdom and/or visiting nobility gift baskets. Thank you!
