Dwarves vs. Giants Tourney
One of Pennsic’s most entertaining novelty tournaments was featured Tuesday as the annual Dwarves vs. Giants Tourney was fought. As is often the case, the Dwarves (those 5-foot-6 and under) outnumbered the Giants (those 6-foot-3 and over. The Dwarves, led by Duke Cariadoc of the Bow, had 12 fighters on the field and seemed to multiply during the fight. The Giants, who had one father-son combination on the list, compensated with overwhelming force. Several melees, numerous single and double combats — and perhaps dozens of bad jokes and puns — insured a good time was had by all.
Known World Baronial Champions Tournament
The Baron and Baroness of Cynnabar in the Midrealm hosted the fifth annual Known World Baronial Champions Tournament Tuesday. Seventeen baronial champions from throughout the Know World took up the challenge and fought before several assembled Barons and Baronesses.
After several rounds of single combat and several rounds of questions by Their Excellencies, the assemble Barons and Baronesses chose Master Lucius Cassius Magnus, Champion of Barony Stonemarche in the East as the new champion. He was presented a baldric signifying his position as the new Known World Baronial Champion.
