Chivalric timed "challenge"  Tourney

Chivalric timed "challenge" Tourney The format is simple. Anyone may
challenge anyone on the field. The loser of the match then becomes a
"captive/retainer" of the victor. The winner of the match then takes his
captive retainer to the list mistress where his/her point value is added
to the captor's score. However, all is not as easy as it seems. On the way
to the List Mistress's pavilion, the victor of the fight may be challenged
by yet another fighter. Should the challenger prove victorious, the
challenge and any of his captive retainers become captives/retainers of
the winner. Think not that this will be simple. For if you challenge
someone with three retainers, then you will have to fight all of them, for
the captive retainers must (may - if agreed upon between challenger and
challenge) fight for their "lord." Once the points have been tallied by
the List Mistress - the captive's are released and may return to the field
as Free Fighters again.
