Location

The Wolf’s Tail Ranch & Stables is located in the peaceful, pastoral beauty of low rolling hills and farm dotted plains of the Minnesota River Valley in southwestern Minnesota. The ranch is an ecologically friendly, working ranch claiming several hundred acres which include the deep, mysterious wilderness of the Wolf’s Tail Woods to the west and the wide, open expanse of prairie land on the east.
The event proper will be hosted on the stable’s land. Temporary paddocks for the horses, and tents for the jousters and support staff, are set up on the east side. All facilities are open to participants and their horses.

Advertising

Registered teams who advertise the event in some way get a 5 point bonus to the Qualifying Round.
Comment with a link to a deviation, journal, or poll you posted advertising the event. This offer is valid until May 20.

How Much Work?

After you’re all nice and registered, you start on your Qualifying Round image. This is your team against dummies, simply show your team running down the track towards a straw or wooden dummy. The top 8 (eight) in the Qualifying Round will move on to the Joust Tournament. After that it’s simple elimination!
This means you do your Qualifying Round picture, then your 1st Round, then Semi-Finals, and then Finals. The maximum number of images you’ll be required to do for the Tournament is 4 (four) pictures.

Rules

  • A 'Round' begins on Monday at 1pm EST and ends two weeks later on Monday at 1am EST
  • At the beginning of each Round a journal will be posted/updated with which team will be facing whom for that Round.
  • Each competitor has one Round to complete their image, failure to do so results in automatic loss. This rule is enforced 100%, no leniency.
  • Each Round will have one or more elements that must be adhered to, such as the weather or a dehorsing.
  • In the event of a dropout, the WTS team will fill in the slot but will not be competing (all their scores will be RNG and they cannot move on)
  • Each image counts as gift art to the opponent.
  • Horses, riders, lances and armor should stay on-model and in scale, images will be penalized for failure to do so.
  • At least ⅔ of both horses and riders must be in every image.
  • Make certain that the strike plate is always on the rider's left shoulder.
  • Each joust will be drawn twice, once by each competitor.
  • Reference images are allowed only when credited, tracing is only allowed on official Summer Joust supplied references.
  • Images will be judged on quality compared to opponent's image.
Winner of each joust will be determined by the following and more:
:bulletblue: Adherence to the Round elements.
:bulletblue: Quality of coloring/shading.
:bulletblue: Quality of perspective/proportions.
:bulletblue: Action box

About the Action Box: It is an inset box (think like a comic book) where, for extra points, you zoom in on some Round element. Must be a new picture and not simply a zoomed in crop of the joust entry.

Information of Interest

Information that does not fit easily anywhere else will go here
At the end of the event the winner of the tournament will be crowned Grand Champion. The team with the most points overall will be the Reserve Champion. The team with the best story (told through pictures, or writing, or the crazy turn of events in the show) will be Judge’s Choice.
Send the registration note first, after that the entry fee, both of which must be done before the Qualifying Round.
References for the joust 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.
Team colors will only be granted to those who make it to the Tournament, the Qualifying Round may be in any colors you wish.
:new: The Qualifying Round image is due BEFORE the first round of the tournament, which is currently set to start June 2

Hey Lion, on the barding, does matter where the colors exactly? I was thinking of having the mask be black and the body cloth be white, but I wasn't sure if you allowed color switches like that.

Ok, so for the height chart, do the entrants ALSO have to be unarmored? Or can you just copy the armor and barding templates onto the height chart for size comparison?
Reply
:iconlionsilverwolf:
lionsilverwolf Featured By Owner May 6, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
You can copy the armor, but the height chart is also a reference for the horses since some people don't have a simple side-facing reference.

Would the Canadian Forest horse be able to enter? They have a heavyish mustang build and it was the predaseccors to the mustangs wich were used to conquor the new world. Some can be 15hh.

I could make some imports for the three winners too.

First time I heard of a Noriker, they're beautiful!
But yea, they're a bit.. closer to the slightly lighter ones though.

xD Any that enter will be 15 hh and they prize horse imports will be so they can be entered later (if it's okay if I donate imports).

Also I'll be willing to design common imports for the event for free. ^-^

The taller Rengetti horses can do well in Jousting, and the group has stat categories specifically for jousting, so the sport was in mind during their creation ^^ I may or may not enter this :paranoid:

I wasn't sure how to go about doing this, but I'd like to add Llamgreons to the qualifying player breeds. I modeled them after classic 'kinghts breeds' like the Destrier and Spanish Jennet.

llamgreons.deviantart.com/art/… Here the breedseet so you dont have to go digging <3 Sorry if this is unorthodox. 

Also hoping to compete in the tournament ;w; If they get approved.

:iconlionsilverwolf:

This is exactly the way to do that :) 
Both types look nice and strong, I'd say either build could compete!

I'd like to submit :iconceffylhydd: for a qualifying player breed, the destrier and courser types are modeled after traditional war horses, and would do well in this discipline. (Plus I want to enter my Ceffyl. :XD: )
