The early morning mists have just begun to fade. The scout, low in the brush, gazes upon the town of Smeewick. The docks, some still blackened from the bandit raids the previous Spring, are active again. The scout watches closely as goods and merchandise are unloaded quickly from the ships to a series of warehouses. If each of those were full, there would be plenty of provisions to allow his army to push further in to Atlantia. He scans the town, trying to see what opposition they would face. There seems to be no regulars of the Atlantian army in Smeewick now, but the scout knows that the townsfolk would be quick to take up arms against any aggressor. No Atlantian town had ever been taken without a goodly amount of blood as its price. Still, the scout thought, Smeewick had the supplies the army needed. It would fall, and after that, they would be ready to strike into the heart of Atlantia. The scout crawls back down the hill, and mounts his horse. cloud of dust erupts as he heads northward. Soon, hard eyes will watch as he proudly reports his findings. The warlord will summon his commanders and discussions will go deep into the night. While some will argue for immediately moving further into Atlantia, others point out that even with the unusually warm winter, the army is short on supplies. In the end, just as dawn is starting to show, the decision will be that Smeewick must fall first. Forces will be marshaled, blades will be made ready, and the shadow of the north will once again fall on Smeewick. Location:
Barony of Lochmere (Annapolis, Maryland)

On April 13th and 14th, the University of Arkansas Community College in Batesville will be holding their third annual Renaissance Days. We are planning on a 2-day event, and there will be free camping and free lunch on site both days. Restrooms are available the whole time, but there are no showers. There are several hotels within two miles of the campus though. We are planning an event type set up, so what you are looking at is a free overnight event with mundane walking around and asking questions. Location:
