Carnival 992 - Sir Tenley versus Sir Robin, Tilt 3
Welcome back, Joust Fans. We hope you had a good lunch in the intermission. We in the commentary box did. The pickled voles' ears were rather tasty, and Mrs Plumpy had baked us a splendid blackbird pie. So, without further ado, we bring you the final tilt between Sir Tenley and Sir Robin. Sir Robin leads 2-1 at the moment. Both knights are looking a little ragged around the edges now, but they are clinging to their saddles just the same.
Sir Robin kicks his horse into a gallop, but Sir Tenley's horse balks and rears. The crowd love it and the horse charges off down the lists at a gallop, spurred on by their cheering.
Sir Tenley attempts some tricky manoeuvring in the saddle, but it is Sir Robin who gains a slight advantage and a good angle of attack.
Both knights line up their lances and both strike their opponent. Sir Tenley strikes Sir Robin on the shield and breaks his lance. The score is now tied at 2-2. Sir Robin strikes Sir Tenley on the chest. He breaks his lance. Sir Robin scores the winning point and passes through to the next round.
Rally round the King (RrtK) and Warrior Heroes: Armies and Adventures (WHAA) are rules produced by TwoHourWargames for massed battles and skirmishing respectively. RrtK is a reimplementation of Warrior Heroes, which we used before RrtK came out. This blog has been set up to track my progress in playing these rules as part of a campaign. It is my intention, as part of my desire to play more games, to write up my games played using these rules on this blog and to record how the campaign progresses.
The RrtK campaign began in the Summer of 986 and will continue until the participants get bored and wander off. The WHAA campaign began with January 986 but has foundered since.
