Summer's Return

As it has happened for centuries, the seasons continue to change. In October, Lady Autumn held the peace until it was time for Lady Winter to take over. It is now April and Lady Spring holds the peace until it is time for Lady Summer to return. The Stronghold of Nebelwald invites you to join us for a day dedicated to the arts and sciences honoring the eventual return of Summer. The theme of this event is all things summer. By honoring Lady Summer, we hope to speed her return. The morning will be dedicated to the Mything Quest, a Gathering of Goslings, and an assortment of classes for all ages and interests. Lunch will be served at midday so we can mentally and physically prepare for the afternoon activities. The afternoon will be dedicated to another set of classes as well as discussion groups, populace choice contests, and whatever activities the populace wishes to engage in.

Whack! Thud! Ow!

Spring is in the air and it is that time of year again. The flora start to blossom, the fauna start to look for mates, and Lady Summer begins to plan her return.  As the weather becomes warmer, the valiant fighters of Drachenwald leave their winter hibernation and take to the field.  The air is full of the cheering of the spectators, the calls of the heralds, and the unmistakable sounds of the heavy fighters - "whack" as rattan strikes rattan, "thud" as a blow lands, and "ow" just before the blow is called good.
