The annual Rushlight Tournament, hosted by King Castruccio Irovetti of Pitax since 4705 AR, draws champions from across the River Kingdoms to a festival ground northeast of Pitax on the banks of Cutter's Creek, a tributary of the Rushlight River. The six-day festival is held from the first Fireday of Sarenith through the final day's Midnight Joust.
Save for the Midnight Joust, contests begin an hour before noon on each day. Each contest has its own rules, but all share three common rules: no contestant can harm a spectator, kill a competitor, or be caught cheating. Violators of these rules are disqualified from that event. Past contests have included longbow competitions, axe-wielding tests of strength, boasting contests, and drunken jousts.
