Æthelmearc Novice Tournament
By Grizzly of Ironstar
Marshal Reporter, Pennsic Independent
Novice rapier fighters are fighters who have been authorized for less than three years and have not won a Kingdom-level tournament. Azriel of Red Spears from the Midrealm, Amalie of Rivenstar also from the Midrealm, and Alaric of Tir Thalor all tied for the final round. The marshals decided to make it a Roman Melee with no deaths from behind. As the match started the two women from the Middle just happened to turn on Alaric and corner him. He lashed out at Amalie just as she struck him for a double kill, leaving Azriel of Rivenstar as today’s tournament winner.
