Are you a fighter?  The Shire of Mountain Edge welcomes all to our 13th Defenders Tourney where there will be competition to choose our heavy armored combat and rapier Defenders.


Rules for competition:

  • A competitor must have current proof of membership in the SCA
  • The Shire discourages dual Defenderships (although we admire your prowess).
  • The Defender may not compete to win two years in a row.
  • The Defender shall maintain the livery in a reasonable manner and return it at next year's Defender tourney. If tailoring or repairs are needed please let us know.
  • The Defender will help plan next year's tournament.
  • The Defender agrees to attend the following years Defenders Tournament to relinquish the livery and title.



  • The livery shall be the Defender's to wear for the year he/she is the Defender.
  • The Defender will be granted free entry to any event the Shire of Mt. Edge sponsors or co-sponsors for the year he/she hold the title.


Please contact Sora the Broken Hearted at auster(at), in advance, if you plan to compete.  This is not required but will make it easier for the current Defenders to design this year's fighting scenarios.
