Tournament of Ove
Long ago the various military branches of the Saviors found that a competition of skill in arms from the various factions could in fact teach their soldiers various principles and strategies used by other forces without having to actually fight against or with the teachers. Thus Ove began to host a military tournament – what began as a event only open to officers and their soldiers quickly became open to the public, a morale booster and trade meet. Currently the event is hosted once a year and includes contests in Fenris axe throwing, Verendi elusive archery (often with drinking of Verendi mageale included), Ove heavy jousts and ricochet crossbow archery, Prima melee lists and spear throwing accuracy, Taraan skirmisher gauntlets and sentry competitions as well as several non military based races and marathons based on the hosting Dominion which has been Egressa for the last 100 years due to it’s beauty and it’s location along the Heartwash. This year 1011 APS (After Pale Shroud) it is also the location where the First Crusade will be launched from when the festivities end.
