Mountain Edge Defender's Tourney - March 23, 2019

2019 Mountain Edge Defender's Tourney

MARCH 23, 2019

Are you a heavy armored combatant?  A rapier fighter?

The Shire of Mountain Edge welcomes all to our 15th Defenders Tourney, where the next Shire Heavy Armored Combat Defender and Rapier Defender will be awarded!

New This Year

The Shire has lifted its restriction against multiple Defenderships. If you wish to compete, you may do so if you are already a Defender or Champion of another branch. This year, the Shire’s newly invested Defenders will not be prohibited from competing in other Defender or Champion tournaments.

Volunteers Wanted!

Interested in volunteering? Teaching a class or leading a demo? Gate, or water-bearing? If so, please contact the Event Steward, Sora the Broken-Hearted with the link below.
