Rapier Tournaments at North Oaken A&S

Nine Points of Roguery at NOAS


There will be a tourney at NOAS on the 30th of April in the lovely Incipient Canton of Pferdestadt, in Delaware OH.   I was unduly influenced by a fiddle tune so here we go!  Rain or shine and regardless of skill level there will be something for everyone.  We will even have a C&T Tourney hosted by my very favorite rogue Marco Borromei.  

What are the Nine Points of Roguery?

  1. deceit
  2. sleight of hand
  3. cunning
  4. influence
  5. a comely face
  6. upper hand
  7. good natured (hint of cynicism optional)
  8. loadsa style
  9. perfectly ruthless (can play the bagpipe and will)


Well, I’m only guessing… Any specialist out there?

All themes above will be worked into themed events that will test the skill of the combatants both off and on the rapier field.  Details will be available at the event.  Hope to see you there!  Bagpipes optional.
