Henry's suggestion sounds like fun, but I have one observation.  It would
be fun if this were a heraldicly-enhanced tourney and set up this way.
Otherwise, if this hapened during a normal tourney or list, other fighters
might get very bored/hot/irritated while all of this went on to settle a
dispute between two of the fighters.  But if done as a planned scenario, I
think this could be fun, not only for the combatants, but also for the
heralds and spectators as well.
