Come and witness the glorious return of Brennan and Caoilfhionn’s Ducal Challenges! There will be fighting, eating, shopping, prizes, and more! Join the Barony of Settmour Swamp as they get together for a fun filled day of activities!

 

The Ducal Challenge features prize tournaments for both armored and rapier combatants. Each combatant is asked to donate a prize to the pool showcasing their art or a piece of art they have commissioned.

The tournaments will be fought in 4 round robin pools, with each pool advancing 4 combatants. The top 16 combatants will then fight a double elimination tournament down to the semifinals. The finals will be fought with rotating weapons forms.

The winner of the tournament will have first pick of the prizes for that tournament. The second prize pick will go to the artist/sponsor of the first prize picked. Then, the second finalist in the tournament will pick, and so on.

Prize suggestions include (but are not limited to):

  • Armor pieces
  • Inkle Trim / Tablet Woven Trim
  • Appropriate artwork
  • Banners
  • Glass beads
  • Jewelry
  • Garb
  • Feast Gear/Pottery

  • Alcohol:  This site is a dry site; no drinking is allowed in or outside.
  • Smoking/Vaping: NO smoking permitted anywhere on church property in or outside.
  • Chairs & Furniture:  The chairs that are indoors must remain indoors and are not allowed outside (apart from what my staff and I have already placed for merchants and the MOL tables).If you have a chair that you like more than a folding chair, you are encouraged to bring it to sit on during court.

 

  • There is a drainage ditch near the parking lot. While it is safe to be in, there is a steep downwards incline with rocks at the bottom surrounding a big portion. Please be sure you and your children are aware of this in order to avoid any potential injury. If you want to go into the ravine, there is a sloping incline towards the back near the tree line.

A generous dayboard, crafted by Baroness Charitye Dale and her helpful staff, is included in the event fee.
