I wrote a while ago about new house rules I was going to implement for Jousting in my GPC game. Well, I finally got to test it out this past weekend as my group found themselves at the Roman Tournament. Three characters entered the joust and all three managed to make it to the 4th round before being defeated. Not to toot my own trumpet, but I think the new rules worked rather well. At least one contest was decided by a single point. A few NPC knights were forced to retire due to injuries, thanks to some crits by the Player Knights, but for the most part this joust has quite the sporting feel. I was a little disappointed that we didn’t see a PK vs. PK joust, but as we’re quickly coming to an end of the Conquest Period, I’m sure that will show up soon. I’d love to hear of any other experiences with these rules, or if anyone has any other variant rules for doing jousts.
