About the Event

Bring your blades, your friends, your friends' blades, and your prowess to the Shire of Isles for a day full of fun, camaraderie, and skill amid cool ocean breezes.

This year's Kingdom Rapier Championship will feature the group round robins to choose the quarter-finalists, followed by a showcase Cut & Thrust tournament, which will also award places in the final rounds. Now, go and get authorized for Cut & Thrust!

An unofficial revel is planned for the Todde & Mora's house after the event; all are welcome. Please contact us at if you need directions to the revel, or to arrange crash space in Isles (the latter will be easier to do with a week's notice).


In order to best gather the kingdom for a celebration of rapier, there will be no site fee. We will put out jars for the kingdom rapier fund and shire treasury, should you wish to donate.

So... sleep late, free event, lots of fighting, cut & thrust list, revel, crash space if you need it. We hope to see you here!
