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 Start Date - May 17th 2013; 8pm EST
Round End Date - May 31st 2013; 7pm EST
Weather - The clouds let their downpour out as soon as round 1 was over, pulling back into a light, misting rain and fog.
Joust Run - The mud got too severe after the first run, so it's been covered with sand and hay, leaving it a bit soggy but surer footing.
RMS Thomas Marks on Fuqin Jingshen fav.me/d644ukv VS RF Sean Aden on Rocky Mountain Way fav.me/d617z7r
Round Action: To prove the soundness of the field, Fuqin Jingshen and Rocky Mountain Way both took off at top speed, barely giving Thomas Marks and Sean Aden time to get into position. Both lances hit, Sean Aden's shattering off Thomas Marks just a moment before his opponent's lance strikes him right off Rocky Mountain Way.
AQS Will Grihm on Humanity's Mendip Blagdon sta.sh/025rjs8kwyy5 VS HSS Deana Traver on Fata Morgana fav.me/d63cujw
Round Action: As if to prove themselves mightier than the previous bracket, Mendip Blagdon and Fata Morgana hit top speed right off the starting line. Their riders are a little more prepared for it, however, and line up just right to both be knocked to the soggy ground! Will Grihm, displaying incredible levels of ill-luck, gets caught on the railing and scrapes his leg.
TWE Lord Aulay on Phantom Of The Night fav.me/d6161ox VS WFK Corentin Bordelon on Tuuli fav.me/d5zx8f2
Round Action: This pair of teams has nothing to prove and that's obvious from their calculated run down the field, Corentin Bordelon scoring a lance-shattering hit off of Lord Aulay. Despite caution, however, accidents happen, and Corentin Bordelon suffers a shrapnel hit to his torso that requires a few stitches to patch up.
I'm sure glad that rain let up, no one wants to be running in full metal armor down an open field in a thunderstorm!
About to submit my entry Lion, my mom left for Kentucky yesterday leaving me in charge of the farm for the week so I've been kinda overwhelmed, XD
So Thomas takes a shattering blow to the shoulder and then Thomas dehorses Sean? XD I just wanna be clear.
So for bracket 2, Will and Deana are both dehorsed, but Will is the one that gets scraped up, right? Lol, I love doing his moping pictures with his injuries XD
Confused, is Thomas Marks dehorsed or am I reading that wrong?
Sorry I'd written that down backwards. Sean's lance shatters and then he's dehorsed!
*L* Oh man, I get to draw Deana on her butt in the mud? It's a good thing she's my avatar, so I can't be said to be picking on her. And since my opponent is such a flirt.. I can give Brian some 'screen time' too, as I've already established his girlfriend filming at this event, so the whole family gets into it.
It'll be fun to watch how the rest of this pans out ^^
