By Sharon Fabian

1     What was a knight to do? Some days there just weren't any battles to fight. Luckily, a knight had other options. A day with no battles was the perfect opportunity for a knight to ride out on a quest.
2     Today, our knight is looking for a tournament. With his trusty steed, and his trusty squire to take care of all of his armor and weapons, our knight is ready to go searching for adventure.
3     He rides all over the countryside, from one castle to the next, looking for signs of a tournament.
4     Finally, in the distance, he sees tents set up and colorful banners flying just outside a castle wall. This is the sign that a tournament is in progress, and brave knights from the castle are waiting to challenge any other knights who dare to take them on.
5     As our knight rides up, he sees a shield with the host's coat of arms hung out in front of the tents at one end of the field. He rides right up to the shield and touches it with the tip of his lance. The challenge is on!
