Well folks, here we go for the last time! For those of you planning on competing in the RH tourney at Steppes this weekend, here is what you need to know.
There will be an advancing archer's duel. For this you will need a combat legal bow and arrows. House Arkham is providing some gear for those who do not have it. You will also need a mask or helmet. I will be providing some extra masks if you do not have one. I STRONGLY recommend a glove for your bow hand. For those of you unfamiliar with shooting APD arrows, they can really tear up the back of your hand. You do not need to be a combat archer to shoot this phase, as it is shot at combat targets, not your fellow archers.
Other rounds will only require target arrows and the bow of your choice. Keep in mind that there will be a lot of speed in this tournament, so choose your bow accordingly! There will be a "step down" before the final rounds of the tourney. If you want to compete but do not think you can fulfill the responsibilities of the office, you will be allowed to bow out of the tourney at this time (similar to Queen's Champion tourneys).
I look forward to seeing you all this weekend. Shoot well, and good luck!
