For the May Crown Tournament AS48 that They presided over, Felix and Eva proclaimed that “All combatants shall be aware that the final of Crown Tournament shall be fought as a best of five, with matched weapons. The weapons forms shall include matched bastard sword, spear, sword and buckler, single sword, sword and shield.”

During the Reign, King Felix presented Duke Siridean MacLachlan with a nail that Felix himself had forged to take with Siridean as he left Lochac’s shores for Kingdom of Drachenwald to present to their Kingdom on Lochac’s behalf. King Felix also named Siridean the ‘Nail of Lochac’. This tied in to the Kingdom tradition that Siridean began in Lochac, involving the passing of a nail from one Crown to the next and the reading of a poem.
