A William Marshall Tournament is an easier variation of a ransom tourney. Each fighter is given 5 coins at the beginning of the tourney for their ransom, regardless of their Society rank or title. Fighting can be either to incapacitate, as with a regular ransom tourney, or to the death. With each loss, the losing combatant must give up a coin to the winning fighter. As long as a fighter still has a coin they can continue to compete.

When fighters are out of coins they are eliminated from the tourney. The fighter with the most coins at the end of the time period is the winner. Because the number of combatants will dwindle as losing fighters are eliminated, this can result in a highly competitive finish amongst the survivors.
