To watch the event unfold, check here  WTS Summer Joust Round 1
Well it's begun, the Summer Joust has started. The weather is not ideal, but everyone's geared up and ready to go! There's fewer participants this year but they seem more dedicated than ever, with almost every pair bringing custom armor to the tournament. This level of willpower will be hard to beat, so good luck to each of the teams in trying!

Round End Date - May 17th 2013; 2pm EST
Overall Conditions
Weather - Thunderclouds and medium fog, almost like the sky is trying to hug the ground.
Joust Run - The ground is a bit muddy, be careful with your footing!

Keep an eye on the rules, everything is being updated constantly to provide the most complete information possible.
If you mess up and trip over a rule I WILL tell you and give you time to fix it!

Everyone seemed to have a grand time at last year's Summer Jousting Tournament, so here it is again folks! Or at least the pre-registration for it. Anyone willing to donate prizes, judge or offer horses for lease please send a PM with Joust Prize, Joust Judge or Joust Leasers as the title.

Current List of Participants

Fantasy draft breeds and draft-crosses are welcome as long as the height requirement is met!
Nordanners, BannerManes, O-S-H-S, Hototos, Cavittos, #SSD's, Segorahs are all welcome!

:star:Horses for Lease:star:

Registered participants who advertise the event in some way get a 5 point bonus to their first round, to be applied to one joust pair only.
Comment with a link to a deviation or journal you posted advertising the event. This offer is valid until April 20th.

:star:Current Prize List:star:
Due to the tiered layout of the Joust there will be no second or third place prizes but rather a reward for each level of the tournament a Jouster reaches. Each jouster gets the prize when they complete a level of the Tournament. Unless a prize specifies the 'winning horse' or 'winning team' the prize goes to the stable the rider is from.

The entire event will be hosted at WolfsTailStables, temporary paddocks will be set up for the horses, tents will be erected for the jousters and support staff. All facilities are open to participants and their horses.
Here is an overview of the jousting area. 
Here is a diagram of the fence/divider and placement on the joust run.

Bullet; Red Horse must be fit and capable of holding the weight of the rider (150+lbs), saddle (50+lbs), barding (50+lbs) and armor (100+lbs), must not be nursing and has a minimum height requirement of 15HH
Bullet; Red Each horse must have one training picture with rider in full armor completed before their first round, failure to do so will result in disqualification.

Bullet; Red Each jouster must accept the rules at the bottom of the journal.

Bullet; Red Entrants must send in 10 Points per team as a deposit before the first round. Failure to send in points will result in you being dropped from the event. If you complete the joust (go until you lose) your points are returned. If you drop out your points contribute to a pool for the winner of the joust.
Bullet; Red This height chart must used as the background for your horse and rider's references. Horses and riders may not overlap and must be to scale. Custom armor must be on this height chart.
:bulletred: Custom armor must include a strike plate on the left shoulder as seen in the base armor.

All breeds are welcome. Wings must be kept tucked under saddlecloak during jousts.

Each entrant may request their primary and secondary color, if the selected pair is already chosen a new set will be selected. For optimum chances at getting your colors, register early and be specific, use the hex code (ie. Red is FF0000; Navy is 070A52)
Use to determine your hex code if you're not sure.
One week prior to their first joust each horse and rider will be presented a set of armor and barding in their colors. 
Entrants are allowed to design custom armor and barding if they register before April 12th, the armor/barding must be drawn on the height chart. The faceplate on the horse's armor must include clear domed eye coverings that mustcover the entire eye.

:star:Information of Interest:star:
Information that does not fit easily anywhere else will go here
:bulletorange: For ease of fitting the joust into show rankings for group point systems, at the end of the joust the participants will be ranked according to their score totals. You may treat this as their 'placing'.
:bulletyellow: Stories are not eligible for points, however they do make things a lot more interesting!
:bulletorange: Send the registration note first, after that the entry fee and the training picture, both of which must be done before the first round.
:bulletyellow: References for the joust (height chart, custom armor) count as references for group point counting. Art drawn by your opponent during the joust counts as gift art for group point counting. Training for the joust counts as a training picture for group point counting. Art drawn by you of your horse counts as show art for group point counting.

Specifics of point awarding will NOT be disclosed until after the event. DO YOUR BEST, even if you lose there's no shame!

Questions or comments? Ask below! Answers of mass interest will be posted in this journal.

The premise is simple, every time a horse sells another from the WTS For Sale folder will take its place. This will continue until the folder is empty or the first day of Fall! Fall begins September 22.

The Rules
:bulletred: Auction type will be specified on each horse.
:bulletred: Art auction horses will go until there are 10 bids.
:bulletred: Art auction bids will be judged on effort.
:bulletred: Art auction bids will be discarded if the horse is the wrong breed or is the wrong color. Each reference is new and exact to the horse it was made for.
:bulletred: Art auction bids and point auction bids must be placed on the horse's sale image.
:bulletred: Point auctions will run until the end of the sale.
:bulletred: Point auctions must be paid in a timely manner or they will go back up for sale; there is no excuse for failing to pay a point auction once you know you have won 
:bulletorange: Clarification: If there are less than ten bids on a horse by the first of Fall the winner will be chosen from the existing bids
