Greetings Unto the Populace of Ealdormere, from Edouard and Domhnail, King and Queen of the Lupine Lands. We hope that one and all are enjoying the Norman and Saxon power struggle!
As you may have noticed, We have not taken any official champions like many of Our predecessors. Instead, We have selected 3 spear bearers and 3 axe bearers to attend Us. However, We would be remiss in Our duties if Ealdormere did not have champions to take the field at Pennsic. It is Our desire that those who seek to champion Ealdormere at Pennsic, come to War of the Trillium where We shall host tournaments which shall decide Ealdormere’s Pennsic Champions. We would ask only those who know they will be coming to Pennsic to participate.

On July 14th Tarnmist will be holding its annual Protectorate Tourney. This year we will also be holding the Captain Of The Guard Tourney at the same event. For the first time in the history of the Barony Captain of the Guard will we vied for with rapiers, and in order to lure some rapier fighters down here I am providing a prize for the incoming Captain of the Guard. As the Captain of the Guard will be the commander of The Baroness's Personal Guard and will hold a position of command in the Army of Tarnmist he or she will require a token not only of the Captain's authority but a symbol of what happens to the unruly Tarnmist fighter who does not follow orders.

Barony of Tarnmist (Santa Maria, California)

Music, dance, theatre, singing, storytelling, and more! If they performed it, then chances are that you'll see it at Crosston's Performing Arts Fete. Crosston will host a day of dance (with instruction) along with singing and revelry for all to take part in. In the evening, we'll take some time to have a light meal in the form of a period potluck before we get back to the festivities (and we hope you're hungry!). Location:
