Janyary 2010 Beau Geste

The winner of this month's Beau Geste tournament was the new Kings Champion, Oscad de Segovia. There were five fighters in the tournament: Oscad, Vasilis, and three visitors from Settemore Swamp: Johnathan, Edward, and Brother Simon. Vasilis (who was fighting right handed, hitting harder than a Mack truck, and doesn't know how good he's gotten) was in the finals. In keeping with His Majesty's proclaimation about crown tourney, the finals were three of five with mixed weapons. It was one of the most entertaining finals I've seen in a long time. They didn't even make it to the sword and shield round. They fought pole arm, two sword, single-sword at the barrier, and bastard swords without thrusting tips. It was a great tourney. Some of the fights, (unfortunately not the finals) are below.
