Canton of Caer Darth (Ed Levin Park, Milpitas, CA)
Attention rapier fighters, come fight in the Nine Lives and "How Many
Thugs Can You Handle?" tournaments. Guild of Defense Prizes will be
fought this day. There will be great rapier classes for all skill
levels. For those that favor cheering on the fighters from the
sidelines there will be much merriment for you as well. All fighters
must come to the event prepared to introduce themselves to the
gallery. This introduction can be done by the fighter, a herald/bard
of their choosing, or they could "rent" a herald/bard at the event for
the day. In addition, during the lunch break we will have a bardic
contest, where each entrant can either perform: An alternative
introduction for a fighter OR A brief retelling of a dramatic moment
in the tournament OR An entertaining description of a most terrific
death by a fighter that day. More information about the tournaments,
fighter introductions, and more merriment see below.

Nine Lives Tourney
Objective: Accumulate as many lives from opponents as possible before loosing your nine
Start: Each fighter receives nine uniquely colored/marked tokens. One for each life. First
fights will be paired on comparable skill level. White scarf vs. White Scarf/ Guildmaster, newly
authorized vs. newly authorized.
Winning fighter of each bought will receive one of his/her opponents life tokens. Lives won
are not given up. Pairs my choose number of fights before containing to next opponent. Which
may be any open fighter. Fighters loosing all their lives may continue to fight but no score will be
added and they may not collect tokens from other fighters.
Winner will be the one who has won the most lives after all but one fighter has lost all their
lives. Variation: Points also given for number of different people someone has fought. 18 fights
against 9 people equals 27 points. 18 fights against 8 people equals 26 points.
Multiplying Thugs Challenge
Highest ratio wins. Can fighter hold off multiple fighters (thugs)? Starts with one fighter facing off against two fighters. If a thug is killed. Two fighters take that thugs place making three, four, five.... If no thug is killed in twenty seconds another thug is added. Fighter can add to his side but ratio does change. 5 thugs to 1 fighter= 10 thug to 2 fighters. Each fighter gets 2 (3?) lives.
