Gatherings of the Church of Tyr

Post by Elisabeth » Sun Aug 19, 2018 4:35 pm

To the Faithful of our Just God:

The thirteenth day of this month will again mark the Maiming, and ye
all are invited and welcomed to attend the ceremony's observance at His
high altar in Waterdeep. Let us be reminded and rejoice in our wounded
father's valor and sacrifice to the cause of order and goodness across
the planes.

Those aspiring and yet uninitiated are likewise welcome to join us, to
learn more of the Maimed God and His holy word of truth and justice.
Appropriate ceremonial garb will be provided to those who have not,
and following the ceremony proper will be a discussion of church busi-
ness which faithful shan't be well served to miss.

Yours,
Dame Elisabeth, Keeper of the Balance
OOC: Here is the Proposed time. We will meet then unless there are objections. Active faithful/hopefuls are strongly encouraged to attend to get yourselves involved and updated.
When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it--always.

Reminder: This is on Thursday evening. Tyr's hopefuls and faithful are all welcome. Should there be IC questions appropriate for addressing at a general gathering of the church, feel free to mail them to Elisabeth ahead of time.

I've not yet heard from anyone regarding the plans earlier discussed. In the interest of not rushing myself, if I don't hear from you by Friday, I'll have to assume you're a no.

Joust of Peace: Hastilude of Remembrance

Post by Elisabeth » Tue Nov 06, 2018 5:08 pm

Cavaliers, squires, and all honorable men-at-arms:

The Church of Tyr is soon to sponsor a joust of peace in honor and re-
membrance of all, be they Grimjaws' child or otherwise, who have served
and given of themselves in the name of Justice across the realms. Dame
Elisabeth marshall humbly invites ye all to join and partake of fair,
like company and honorable sport on the field of battle. Contests will
progress in an elimination format, wherein victors in each round will
go on to face their fellow victors. The best among us shall be awarded
a prize of the church's giving.

To fund prizes, food, and rebated weapons (which will be provided), an
entry fee equivalent to five platinum pieces will be collected from
combattants at registration; spectators are welcome to attend free of
charge. The gathering place is a day's ride east from Luskan, upon the
plains betwixt the Blackford Road and the Spine of the World. Further
details to be posted below.

Yours,
Dame Elisabeth
OOC:
Who: Monstrous races, evils, very chaotic PCs, and enemies of Tyr generally will be barred from entering the contest. They may spectate but do so at their own risk. (Although see here and another post soon to come for events more suited to you wicked/unruly sorts :).
When: 12 November at 9pm EST
How: This is intended to be a semi-formal to informal joust. By that I mean, for this at least, we're not going to employ any scoring systems or the likes outside what code gives us; rather, I'd like to feel out interest for this sort of roleplay before trying anything too grand. Bouts will consist of the following, in order:
  • three passes total on killmode spar with the lance,
  • three passes total on killmode spar with the sword, axe, or spike,
  • and completion of the bout by stun or surrender on killmode stun with the sword, axe, or spike.
All weapons will be provided. Magical trinkets (save holy symbols) and spell effects are forbidden; magical armor and shields are fine. Combattants need not possess the mounted combat feat to participate, but be aware that "sword, axe, or spike" means that you are going to be relying on a one-handed weapon after the lances are through, so bring a shield!
Mounts must be kept on killmode nofight for the duration of the fighting, and (for RP purposes, their killmode notwithstanding) must be mundane, mortal horses. Any combattant who strikes a horse directly will be disqualified (and most grevously dishonored!).
See you there.

This is in a few hours! To be super duper clear, the Casual Events thing is separate, more private/informal/a way to allow evils and whoever else to pas through and hang out for a bit. The contest itself is at 9pm EST as above. Sorry to any I confused!
