Knightly Tournaments

A Guide to Jousting & Tournament Combat for OSR Games
Compatible with Most Fantasy RPG systems


Three Combat Scenarios

The thunder of hooves and the roar of the crowd.
The deafening clash of a lance striking metal.
Salute your opponent, because it’s time to joust!


“I love the swelling of pride I feel at the Invocation! The rush of excitement when I’m hitting a shield on the Tree of Shields. The pounding of my blood as my mount and I rush forward, the tilt blurring in my vision. It’s all so grand! Well, all apart from the cry of “Atteint!” and the landing hard on your arse on the hard packed earth of the list”

- Sir Jeffries, Knight Errant

Hello and welcome, adventurers and Game Masters!

This guide focuses on setting forth rules for simulating medieval tournament style mounted and mêlée combat for use with OSRIC and 1E compatible retro-clones, although its rules (focused on alternating ability checks) are compatible with most fantasy RPGs. The pageantry and show of jousting and tournament combat is always a grand spectacle in most medieval campaigns based on our historical past, and this guide aims to help you and your players integrate that style of combat into your games. Whether it is chivalrous combat for sport or combat to the death, we hope to have the GM and the brave knights of their campaign straight into the action with a rules light approach to this style of combat.

I also include three different tournament scenarios, so your players will be strapped to a warhorse and hammering down a list at their opponent or charging into a tournament mêlée in little to no time!

The three scenarios are as follows:


These scenarios taken place in three is separate kingdom’s within the author’s published campaign world, JarlburghAlderburgh, and Dùn Bhriste. The scenarios detail additional background information and areas for adventure for those GM’s setting their campaigns in the author’s ever expanding campaign world. 

This book features 22 pages of excitement and thrills, with players facing several different types of challenges in the included scenarios, and it is sure to please discerning GMs and players everywhere!

As an ADDED BONUS, as a purchaser of one of my modules you also get a FREE copy of my 2019 Starry Knight Press Catalog!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
