Kingdom of Heaven Tournament

To celebrate his impending ascension, and new peace with the Saracens in the Holy Land, in 1229 the heir to the Holy Roman Empire and the Kingdom of Jerusalem has invited the Christian knights of the Holy Lands to a Round Table and foot joust.

The Round Table is an early form of tournament, symbolic of the legendary round table of King Arthur, in which Knights compete in single combat and mass melee. They risk life and limb for the honour of being seated with the King at the celebratory feast and to prove their worth to their new lord.
