The character creation rules used for The FlailSnails Jousting Tourney are cruel and harsh.

As it turns out, Sir Walther was beaten by Sir Enguerrand in the first round of the tourney. He was unable to buy back his Mail Hauberk and his Medium Warhorse. And so he left, hurting badly, on a light warhorse and with cheap boiled leather armor.
