The Thirty-first Year

Black Knight Tourney -- Canale

May 18, 1996 (AS XXXI)

Tuolumne River Regional Park,
Modesto, CA

From The Page (May, 1996):

The Shire of Canale is pleased to once again sponsor the Black Knight Tournament. This year, however, the Black Knights are doing something new. They are taking on the personas of nine of the most evil, most despicable fighters from the history and literature of the Middle Ages - the Nine Unworthies. Match your sword and wit in this Pas d^Armes against Mordred, Ganalon, the Kings Baybars I and Herod, the Emperors Xerxes and Diocletian, Pharaoh Ramses II, Goliath and Paris. Prove to all that you have what it takes to be considered one of the Nine Worthies through your skill and chivalry.

Autocrat: Olof Guddmunddsson (contact info omitted)
