Rapier Movie Magic Tournament

Step forward and do combat in the manner of the heroes of Hollywood yore! Prove victorious in a test of prowess, daring, laughter, and silliness! Each entrant will take their turn as the Hero, and do battle against the evil Lord's Goons. To aid him, he will have his wits, his steel, and ability cards with movie fencing clich├ęs on them!

Points will be awarded at the Director's discretion for both kills and style, to include banter and excellent use of cards. The Hero with the most points wins! There will be a prize basket for the victor, and additional prizes for best style in categories to be determined by the Director.

There will also be two types of special cards which will be available for purchase (one for $5, one for $10), all proceeds of which will be donated to the Royal Travel Fund, to send our Crown to bear witness to the birth of our Society's twentieth kingdom at Avacal's Inaugural Coronation in June.
