Armoured Championship

Hrogn hosted an Armoured tournament that had the following format:
There will be an hour and a half long bearpit welcoming all fighters regardless of if they are vying for Myrg Champ or not. Winner holds the field. Once a fighter gets 3 wins in a row, they get a point and exit the field. Two new fighters take the field. At the end of the tournament, the top 2 vying fighters will face each other in a best 2 of 3 finals for Myrg Champ. If a non-vying fighter achieves one of the highest 2 point totals, there will also be another 2 of 3 for top overall score.
The new champion is Aelhunn Angarsson.

Patterns were available for tracing. Fabric options was be discussed (period and not, because of washability after camping events).
