Hark, draw near and hear the words of his Excellency of Bergental.  His
Excellency has seen the rise of riders and horses within the barony and its
surroundings.  So pleased is he at the progress of his cavalry that he has
determined that it is necessary to hold a tournament to show all and
sundry the prowess of his people and their steeds. 
Come and join us for a day of equestrian competition and camaraderie!
