Jousting Tournament

Knights Wanted! Can anyone beat the 2012 champion, Ghost Knight? Angela Brown turned out to be a formidable opponent.

This year, the joust is all about YOU, the knights.

Each knight will be featured during the joust, the tournament held to help promote your book or site. Plus, you'll be publicized in the sidebar on my site until the 2014 champion is declared.

Prizes will be awarded to each day's commenters as well as to the winning knight at the end of the joust. Points are scored by commenters using particular words assigned to the knight. Such as, Zounds! Ghost Knight! Lance that lout! The winning words are zounds, Ghost Knight, and lance. That'd be 3 points for Ghost Knight.

Knights can provide either a story about their feats or an excerpt from any of their books. Stories/excerpts are limited to 200 words or less. However the tournament goes, you can't lose. I'll be posting everyday the week of November 11th, cheering on knights and promoting their wares.

Knights can also provide prizes.

The Joust is limited to 10 participants. Only 3 slots remaining!

Points will be score for using secret words. An ebook will be given away every day to the witness who scores the most points. A bigger prize will be awarded at the end of the week. Warrants for their arrests have already been issued. The Sheriff of Realmsdom will catch up with them all soon.

Castle Jumble

Laura will post a word (like Bartizan) on her blog and the first person to give her the correct definition in the comments is the winner. They will need to Google the word most likely. More than one word a day can be posted. A person can only win once a day though.

Drench-a-Wench / Soak-a-Bloke

Blogs will be selected by committee to be bombarded by comments. A person will be nominated each day. People will go to that person's blog and soak them with blog love. One commenter a day will randomly be selected to win a prize. For the commenters that participate in all five days of the event, their names will be entered into a draw for a grand prize.

Untethered Realms will post a word each day, such as 'Phaser'. The first commenter would then provide a word they think of associated with 'phaser', such as 'stun'. The next commenter would then provide a word they associate with 'stun', such as 'shock'. The next would provide a word associated with 'shock', such as 'electric'. And so on. The last comment of the day will receive a prize.


Sponsor Any Event

Sponsors will provide prizes. They'll be promoted on their own page on and on the Untethered Realms website. In an Amazon widget, their books will be shown, their name and web address will be promoted. This page will also appear as a thank you on and other sites before and after the Realms Faire.

Sounds fun. And a bit complicated. Good luck with it.

Sheena-kay Graham said...

I'm excited about this. Definitely in (but not jousting).

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Didn't get to participate, but not sure I'd want to go up against you!

Gwen Gardner said...

Yay! Tons of fun coming our way. Not sure if Stormy Knight will be participating in the joust, though. Her chest plate still hurts (LOL!).

J.L. Campbell said...

Already signed up, Angela. I hear you're awesome at this.

Angela Brown said...

Less complicated for participants. It's a whole lot of fun.

Angela Brown said...

Glad to have you in whatever event you'd like to participate in.

Angela Brown said...

LOL! Actually, Alex, you would probably be the Ninja Knight and be the hardest knight of all to beat :-)

Angela Brown said...

You and I did duel something fierce at last year's joust. Oh it was soooo fun!

Angela Brown said...

Thanks, Joy. I don't know about awesome *blush* but this jousting thing was a lot of fun. I believe I won by a thin film of my ectoplasm :-)

Clarissa Draper said...

I signed up for The Artist's Way. I think it's amazing what one person's art can inspire another person to create. It makes me excited to be the source of that inspiration!
