Results from battles, and War Point tallies
By Peregrine Fairchylde

On a field crowded with Dons, White Scarves, Bronze Rings and others from the cream of the rapier community, it took 28 bouts to determine the victor in the Rapier Champions War Point. But when Warder Andrew Blackwood MacBain the Purple slew Lord Malcolm Bowman, that pushed the Midrealm to 16 victories, a majority among the 30 planned bouts.
The two sides split the remaining two bouts, giving the Middle Kingdom a 17-13 victory in the battle.

After 20 War Points: Midrealm Dragons 19,
East Tygers 1
A hot and bright morning greeted the two grand armies Thursday as the Midrealm and the East met to face each other in the causeway battle. This was the second straight year the fort hosted this rollicking affair.
In the sixth year of the non-war point Thrown Weapons Champions tourney, the East Kingdom and its allies brought the overall tally to three victories apiece by defeating the Midrealm and its allies on Wednesday.
Middle - 10
East - 1
That didn't take long.
With the East Kingdom and allies outnumbered three, four, even six to one - depending upon whose estimates you accepted - the outcome of the Rapier Broken Field Battle was virtually preordained, and the Middle Kingdom's army and allies easily took the first two battles and the war point on Tuesday.
After nine War Points: Midrealm Dragons 9, East Tygers 0
A Pennsic original played out under cloudy skies and temperate temperatures Tuesday as the Woods Battle was fought. Through the years, the East has dominated this fight and HRM Kelson and Co. lined up at the southern entrance. Looking to press their advantage after an excellent first day, the Midrealm and its allies lined up at the northern entrance.
East Kingdom 0
For the fifth year in a row, the fortress of La Rochelle fell on the Pennsic battlefield.
