Log of Event
On the evening of Tuesday, May 13th, 2008, it was my honor and privilege to officiate the latest Talon of Redwin tournament. 1 Grand Master, 4 Masters-at-Arms, 1 Swordsman, and 8 Commoners vied for the Talon. One Commoner (Scarlet Moon) made it to the Semi-Finals, and the Swordsman (Sabastian GoldRaven) reached the Final. Bravo!
Master-at-Arms Matthew Simon was the last duelist standing and was awarded the Talon dagger (and the extra Fancy Maneuver). Congratulations!
Almost all of the matches were long and closely contested; the average match length was 12 rounds with an average margin of victory less than two points. Two duels went over regulation length, including an 18-round comeback win by Matt in the Semi-Finals.
I was impressed by this group of Commoners. The future of our fair sport appears bright.
Congratulations again to Matthew Simon, the new Talon of Redwin!
