Blimey! I'm completely overwhelmed. Thanks a lot to everyone who has voted for our entries and thanks again to Eric for hosting the competition and to everyone who has thrown in for the prizes. Whoa - gonna have a party now!
Congratulations, Soaringraven. Now if we could find a nifty ruleset for running jousts...
Thank you for letting us play. Looking forward to next year
Vermin King, the idea for the Tournament set came from a long-running Harnmaster campaign that featured tourney knights and the tourney circuit in Kaldor. I still have my house rules for this floating around somewhere. I can scrounge these up if you're interested - they won't be much use unless you play Harnmaster. PM me if you want to have them.
If anyone can find an old first-edition set of the 1977 FGU Chivalry and Sorcery rules, there's a simple and brilliant set of jousting rules, which would do soaringraven's lovely entry justice.
Not sure I'd really class C&S in any of its editions as "simple", as I've long found it far too complex to be workable as an RPG, for all its attempted realism. However, don't let that put you off finding out if you like it for yourself!
I found a free PDF downloadable version here, which appears to be a genuine copy of 1st edition C&S, but redrafted to be actually readable. Although there seem to be some questions over its legality, it appears never to have been the subject of any actual legal proceedings, and remains available online in several places. If you're concerned though, it's worth reviewing the Red Book (C&S) Wikipedia page first.
There is also an electronic version of the most recent, 4th, edition available via the OBS sites, as a free download too. It comes in three volumes, although from a quick scan through, I'm not sure the jousting rules have survived as such, but I may simply have missed them. The combat rules are still VERY involved... In the 1st edition PDF rules though, look for "Tournament" on pages 70-74.
Vermin King: Well, today is my first papercrafting workshop at one of the Senior Primary Care clinics. Wish me luck

squirmydad: I use winXP in Paralells on my Macbook to run Pepakura and Metasequoia. Otherwise I only touch Windows when a client can't figure out how to mirror their display to my projectors.

Vermin King: Is it the Windows updates or the Firefox updates that won't allow me to select where to download pdf's any more?
