Subj: The Master of the Joust

As the Year 650 combat tourney came to a close, the roar of Galviarn Desh, famed jousting promoter, rose above the din of congratulations.

"Combat, schmombat!" he shouted. "Trying to bash a man's brains in or overwhelm him with minions is hardly a contest! Jousting, on the other hand... now that is a contest to truly test one's mettle. And it's high time the sport became a little more popular!"

"Mighty Gods of the Pantheon, I beseech You!" pleaded Galviarn. "Raise jousting to new heights, and grant we of mounted combat the ability to joust in formal arena matches!"

"We are of like minds, beast rider," came the thundering voice of Tecton, the Terraformer. "Your wish is granted. Let a new era of jousting commence."

Ecstatic with this news, Galviarn announced to the world that a tournament would be held as part of the Year 650 celebrations, to be held on the 3rd of Phaestian.

Penned by My hand on the 6th of Lupar, in the year 650 AF.
