The Newcomers Tournament is open to heavy fighters who have been fighting 2 years or less, and will take place in the morning. There will be one tournament for fighters who have been fighting a year or less and then a tournament for those fighting two years or less. Prizes will be given to the Champions!

The Warlord Tournament is open to any heavy fighters, and will take place in the afternoon. The Champion will receive the title of Warlord of Southern Shores along with some spiffy regalia and a prize!

In addition to the heavy fighting tournaments, we will also have a Prize Tournament for Rapier Fighters! This tournament is open to rapier fighters of any experience level, and a prize will be awarded to the Champion.
