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.
stoff: These are the versions that i was talking about.

cowboyleland: I have a simple plan: never make money, never pay taxes! Kidding, I know taxes how we pay for civilization.

squirmydad: That's okay, so is the IRS. I'm pretty sure my tax return is one of the millions stored in trailers and unprocessed.

okumarts: My taxes are still at the accountant. They are backlogged.

Vermin King: Well, my day has been spent on work and taxes. Am I the last forum member to do their 2019 taxes?

Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download

Vermin King: Not all progress is beneficial...

cowboyleland: I see now. Some new upgrade (windows? chrome?) blocks downloads of "multiple files" at a time. The miniscule notification that the download was blocked appears in the corner of the screen for a fraction of a second. "They" call this progress.

cowboyleland: Hm. Ok, turns out I have it on a back-up drive already anyway.

cowboyleland: For some reason Hoard 93 isn't downloading for me. No error message, just nothing happens when I click.

Vermin King: Extreme localized flooding sucks ... if it is centered over you
