From The Page (June, 1992):
Time again to call forth fighters for a tourney from which legends are made. Will you be the one to lead Esfenn into battle and continue the recent tradition of moving on to ever more glorious rewards? Our last two First Swords became princes! Come and claim the right!
The First Sword competition is open to all fighters of the West and the winner will become the military spokesman/representative and field commander for the Shire. The shire will also hold a Prize Tourney and activities for non-fighters. A revel will follow the days efforts and achievements.
