Event details

We call upon all friends and neighbors of the Shire of Lyndhaven to our aide in this time of crisis.  Many years ago the Barony of Ruantallan came to our aid in a land dispute, and following that conflict we dispatched one of our finest citizens to their lands as a diplomatic liaison.  We have recently stopped receiving any communication from our liaison and word has reached us that our citizen, the good Lord Bjorn of Paeding Town, has had his home and possessions seized and is being held hostage and will not be allowed release until Lyndhaven provides a sizable ransom. 

You know Lyndhaven to be a peaceful and moral land, but modest in wealth and in our army.  We cannot meet the demands of the ransomers and we fear they will soon demand their price in blood.  We ask you to send your combatants to defend our autonomy and send your bards to stir our hearts as we fight for the release of our citizen.

This weekend-long event features a schola, heavy fighting, fencing, archery, thrown weapons, a bardic competition, the spring swainmote of the Royal Foresters Guild, and plenty of other fun. 

On Friday, the event site gate opens at 12 noon.  There will be a potluck supper that evening. 

On Saturday is the day for activities and classes to take place.  Three full meals will be provided on Saturday; a continental breakfast buffet-style, a day board, and an evening meal.  Menus to follow.  After the evening meal there will be a bardic competition and the points will be tallied and a winner of the dispute will be settled. 

Sunday allows time for sleeping in and packing up, as well as the annual Lyndhaven populace meeting.

Site Opens: 1200
Site Closes: 1200
