The King's company returns, laden with treasure. But as they travel the last stretch of forest road, they are set upon by bandits. Can they return the treasure alive?
The King's company will be charged with transporting a heavy chest on a palanquin along a hiking path. Those carrying the chest must wear full gauntlets. All weapons systems are allowed.
The challenge will be timed. When the King's company reaches the goal, the timer will be stopped, sides switched, and the scenario done again.
The hiking path may occasionally be in use by other visitors to the park so fighters and marshalls are encouraged to use extra caution.
Using the wealth the King returned from his adventures abroad, the Crown has decided to build a bridge over a small stream. But given that it's not an especially large stream, They have elected not to charge a toll.
bandit entrepreneur, you find this a missed opportunity and set about to rectify this wrong. However, every other bandit entrepreneur in the area has had the same thought. Can you work you way up the economic ladder to earn enough to retire?
All participants will start armed only with a dagger and a single coin. The first person on the list will hold the bridge first.
The next person in line may choose to either cross for a toll of one coin (return to the end of the line without challenging the current tollkeeper) or challenge them. The victor gains all the coins of the loser. The loser returns to the end of the line and receives one coin as alms. Coins will be managed by assistants in place of a list.
All injuries are sustained. At any time between fights, the current tollkeeper may forfeit their position on the bridge to pay to be healed of all injuries, or to purchase new weapons (prices to be determined). The objective is to collect enough coins to retire (amount to be determined) at which point the contestant is removed from the tournament and declared a winner.
Various shenanigans will happen along the way that may assist or hinder any participant without warning. Combatants are expected to play along.
The Crown, frustrated with the continued lawlessness, has ordered a raid on the bandit's camp that night as they feast. The bandits, are caught unaware, and must mount a defense with whatever they have available.
Bandits will begin seated around a table with various objects in front of them that may be used as weapons or shields. These items will be objects such as rattan dressed to look like animal legs that may be used as a mace, or trays that may be used as shields. The victor from the Bridge Bandit scenario may start armed with a sword. Because all other combatants start unarmed, all bandits must wear full gauntlets. A rack of other (conventional) weapons will be stationed nearby.
At lay on, the King's company will attack the bandits until there are no opponents remaining on one side. The battle will be timed and once complete, the sides will be switched and the scenario run again.
This battle is to be conducted by torchlight.
Two Couriers and their Bodyguards, need to travel through town to deliver their treasures, but these are dangerous times. Ruffians are afoot, attempting to steal the treasures. Can the Town Guards protect them? Will the Gaoler have room for them all, and will he be able to defend his Gaol to prevent breakouts? Which side will end up with the most treasure?
Non-combatant Couriers will each carry a treasure, and accompanied by bodyguards, attempt to reach their household on the far side of town. Ruffians of the opposite household are about, and may attack the bodyguards at anytime, and abscond with the Courier.
Town Guards want to quell the fighting, and will jump into any fight (and on either side, those scoundrels). Anyone so much as wounded by a Town Guard is sent to Gaol. A courier may not advance without both his Bodyguards, but anyone may jump in and become a Bodyguard as needed.
Gaol has room for only a limited number and when exceeding capacity, the offender there the longest will be released. A Goaler may be attacked and if loses, all offenders will be freed. Gaol break!
All dead are sent to their respective Courier starting points, to await the start of the next delivery!
Winning team will be given loot to share!
