Heavy Weapons (Armored Combat) Conventions

Have you ever wanted to take part in one of the great battles that shaped history? Now you have that chance. Come join us on the high seas for the battle of Svolder or take part in the siege of Orleans. We will have Heavies fighting Thursday through Sunday. The fighting on Friday and Saturday will be for war points to determine which kingdom will be victorious this year. On Sunday, the Ladies of the Rose will be hosting The Valkyrie Rose Tournament. And after 3 PM, each day the fields will be open to challenge fights.

Conventions of Combat

Weapon standards for the war follow Caidan regulations. Armor standards for the war will follow the regulations of each fighter’s home kingdom. Combat Archery regulations will follow Society rules.

Engagement
  • One may only strike and opponent when engaged with them. Engagement is defined in the following ways.
    • Out of a Line – Opponents must be face each other, or otherwise making eye contact
    • In a Line (defined as 3 combatants arranged side by side in a line formation) – Any combatant within a line is considered engaged with any combatant legally attacking any combatant in the same line, and vice-versa.
Killing from Behind
  • There is no striking an opponent in the back or blind side, when not engaged.
  • To defeat an opponent blind to one’s attack, one must either establish engagement before attempting to strike, or perform a kill from behind.
  • Killing from behind is performed by establishing control of one’s opponent (not by grappling in any way), presenting one’s weapon in the field of view of the opponent, and loudly declaring “You are dead from behind!”
  • For single-handed weapons, one must place the weapon horizontally over the opponent’s field of vision.
  • For two-handed weapons or polearms, one must place the weapon on the opponent’s shoulder, so that the striking/stabbing end of the weapon is clearly visibly by the opponent.
Dead on the Ground
  • Combatants in a prone position or tri-podding may not strike and opponent or be struck.
  • A combatant may declare an opponent dead, if said opponent is prone or tri-podding by presenting one’s weapon and clearly declaring “Dead on the Ground!”
    • Note: Killing from behind and dead on the ground procedures must be declared for each individual opponent. This may not be done as a single action towards a group of opponents.
Calling Shots
  • Opponents may not Call their Shots. It is the duty of the recipient of any shot (missile or otherwise) to determine if the shot was good. A missile combatant may indication they were the one shooting and providing information on placement and orientation of the shot.
