Atlantian Rapier Fighters–Your Queen needs you!!!

All rapier fighters are welcome and encouraged to enter.
There will be two lists running simultaneously. The Queen’s list will be for those who have never been a Queen’s champion and The Atlantian list will be for all of those who have had the honor of that title or would prefer not have the responsibility of champion but would still like to fight the tourney.

The winner of The Atlantian list will be given the title of Royal Rapier of Atlantia and be given Atlantia’s champion slot at Gulf Wars.

The Queen’s list will have two individuals chosen, one by Prince Ragnarr to be His King’s Champion and one by Princess Lynette to be Her Queen’s Champion. These two individuals will not necessarily be the last two standing. Two will be chosen from the final 6-8 depending on numbers and tournament style based on the following:

*Prowess shown with a rapier
*Honor for Royals and other fighters
*Kingdom Pride
*Enjoyment of the Tournament and fellow fighters
