If you’re an advanced renaissance larper (whatever that means) or just a big-time fan of “Game of Thrones,” then your dreams of going medieval in a bone-crushing sorta way might become reality.

The History Channel is currently casting for an upcoming competition series called “Full Metal Jousting” with a $100K prize tacked to it, reports Vulture.

“It’s sixteen guys, and they’re gonna knock the crap out of each other,” says executive producer Craig Piligian.

If you don’t normally joust like, at the office or in your backyard, no problem! According to the casting notice, the producers have instructors who’ll teach you. All they’re really looking for are dudes who are skilled at riding horses “while simultaneously performing physical activities requiring hand-eye coordination.”

Oh, and it’s better if you’re not afraid of possibly getting impaled to death, too.
