Baronial Artisan Competition


Baronial Gaming Championship

Unto the populace of Flaming Gryphon do I, Syr Magnus, send greetings and warm wishes.

Once again, another year has gone by and a new one lies before us. I have had much joy in being Flaming Gryphon’s gaming champion, and it is time I pass that onto another. At Flaming Gryphon Twelfth Night, I will hold a tournament of games to determine who will take up the game board and become the next Champion.

The format will be determined the day of and will depend on how many contestants wish to compete. More important than the format will be the games that will be played. These will be 9 Men’s Morris (also called Mill), Alqurques, and Byzantine Chess. (Rulesets for each will be published shortly. No more making up rules on the fly this year!)

Any who wish to compete, please contact me so I may get a rough idea of how to form the tournament. It has been a pleasure bringing the joy of period gaming to many people this past year. I hope to see even more games this coming year from our next Champion. Good luck to everyone.

In Service, Syr Magnus
