Description
A Pas d’Armes is the most formal and elegant form of a tournament. Even a simple pas requires quite a bit of dash to accomplish well. And a full-on formal pas is a challenge to all: The organizers, the participants, and yes, the heralds. To do it right, there cannot be only one! This session will endeavour to acquaint the student with what is necessary and what is desirable in the matter of being the herald-in-charge of a formal Pas d’Armes. References will include King René’s Book of the20Tourney and other historical and SCA authorities on the subject. At the completion of the course, the student will understand the requirements of a Pas and be fully prepared to lead, coordinate, and instruct the heralding thereof. Well – anyway, they’ll have some idea of what they’ll need to do!
