From Their Majesties:

Those wishing to enter Our Crown lists need to be aware of the following requirements:

An Tir shield conventions will be enforced:

• Shields not center-gripped shall be sized no larger than shoulder-to-shoulder and chin-to-crotch, measured in armor
and sitting on a bench. This will be part of mandatory armor inspection.
• Center-gripped shields shall be sized no larger than elbow-to-elbow with fi sts touching in armor.
• As is An Tir convention, any reductions in width may be added to height or vice versa.
• No exceptions to shield convention will be given so please plan accordingly. It is the duty of the Earl Marshal and the Kingdom Heavy Armored Marshal to enforce this.

Entrants should fight with a weapon and/or shield style that is appropriate to their persona and/or kit.

One-handed weapons may have only one thrusting tip.

Period armor kits are to be encouraged. To encourage this, fighters with excellent kits will be preferentially chosen to join the Chivalry side prior to first-round challenges.

Crown Tournament will be a standard double-elimination tournament with the finals fought best two out of three.
