434 World Jousting Tournament is the sixth worldwide tournament hosted by various organizations within Elanthia, including official orders as well as the Tavern Troupe Performing Order and the Ilithi Events Task Force.

Contestants qualify for one of six skill-based divisions. Winners of each qualifier receive a prize and are eligible to joust in the championship.

Rules

  • Contestants may compete in any qualifier regardless of citizenship. (If a contestant fails to qualify, they may try again at the next qualifier.)
  • Contestants will verify their skill in polearms and shield usage via the TELLEXP command. They will be placed in the appropriate division based on a formula of these two skills. The formula that will be used in every qualifier and the finals is the same. It is the sum of your polearm and shield divided by two.
  • No spells of any kind are allowed to be in effect. (This is for simplicity, so that the hosts don't have to waste time arguing or consulting Elanthipedia to determine which spells might affect the outcome.)
  • No stat or skill buffs are allowed. This includes (but is not limited to) spells, supernatural abilities, Empathic links, and constellation jewelry.
  • Anyone found to be cheating will be automatically disqualified.
  • No mulligans. If a contestant jumps off their horse to avoid impact (because they are not properly equipped), they forfeit the match.
  • To avoid the appearance of impropriety at qualifiers, members of a host order will ideally compete in a qualifier that is hosted by another order. If this is not an option, the host order member's ranks must be verified by someone outside the host order.


FOR THE FINALS:

  • Contestants will verify their skill in plate, polearms and shield usage via the TELLEXP command. They will be placed in the appropriate division based on a formula of these three skills. It is the sum of your plate, polearm and shield divided by three.

The reason for this is that time has gone by for people to have been training up, or not training at all to stay at the "top" of the bracket. It evens out the playing field. And as we do this we will also be looking at the numbers for new bracketing moving forward. As in the past we've had to adjust as our guys and gals got bigger and better it seems that must again come into the field. If any wants to discuss this 1 - 10 new bracketing system with me, Kaelie Daemondred-Rudeone, I would love to have the conversation. We can never learn well what we don't put to practice.

Result Points
lance breaks on shield* 1 point
lance strikes torso 2 points
lance strikes head 3 points
opponent is unseated/unhorsed 5 (instant victory)

*Shield strikes do not count unless the lance breaks.


The contestants will joust until one of them has earned a total of five points.

Lined in soft black rabbit fur, the browband is decorated with a faceted diamond dragon's head that gazes fiercely forward. Blued steel plates engraved with Therengian roses protect the reins from being cut during battle, while the black reins are artfully painted with tiny bright blue roses blooming upon subtly shaded vines.)
