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 31st 2013; 9pm EST
Round End Date - June 14th 2013; 10pm EST
Weather - The skies have cleared, the rain a distant memory of the morning. In fact, the sun now shines almost blindingly bright!
Joust Run - The ground is steaming slightly as it dries out, but the mud is gone leaving simply soft earth.
FFS Richard Leos on Crusade of Charlemagne sta.sh/01sz7hzm7pya VS RF Sean Aden on Rocky Mountain Way fav.me/d617z7r
Round Action: The sun must be a little too bright for the horses, because the start of the round has then both stalling at the start line. Crusade of Charlemagne in particular seems affected, shying away from the divider just before the lances would strike!
AQS Will Grihm on Humanity's Mendip Blagdon sta.sh/025rjs8kwyy5 VS BMEC Ada on Those Ringing Belles fav.me/d60an38
Round Action: brok lance 2; dehorse 2 The second round starts off neatly, both riders striking square with Ada's lance shattering and Will Grihm's snatching her right off of Those Ringing Belles! Somehow in the commotion, Will Grihm suffers a scrape to his arm from flying lance pieces.
Seems like the sunlight is causing just as many problems as the rain did!
Sadly, I'm going to have to forfeit my round to Ada and Ringing. We're packing to move and the hubby packed up my scanner with no way to get to it. I tried my old standby of the camera, but it's broken And I know I am no good at drawing mouse only. But good luck to JEAikman! Way to pull back into the round! ^_^
Well you do have until the end of the round to get SOMEthing in, doesn't have to be finished even But thank you for the heads up!
....aw, shizznickle DX I could have tried to uploaded my crappy photo at least then. Ah well, if I randomly get time tomorrow, maybe I will try to pull something out, otherwise I will gladly concede to JEA ^_^
So I just want to clarify what is happening for action for my bracket: Ada's lance hits Will, doesn't dehorse him, but some pieces scrape him from the lance. Ada is hit by Will and dehorsed, correct? Just want to make sure whether or not Will is getting dehorsed again XD
Woo, second chance! Excellent :3
LMAO, now I think you might be getting Will roughed up just for the heck of it XD At this rate, if he wins, he'll be accepting his trophy in bandages and casts, lol!
Hahaha. Staff enters a hospital room with a trophy. Will is hooked up to an IV and in a full-body cast, yet somehow manages to get his shirt off when a nurse comes in.
