[DRA] Summer Event 2008

The Shire of Polderslot likes to invite you all to our Summer event. The theme this year will be witchcraft and superstition. The site is in a beautiful spot in the woods, perfect for outdoor activities.

We will arrange a quest to look for witches and ghosts, so we need heavy weapon fighters, fencers, but also people who are able to do arts and sciences like for example music. However, it is recommended not to stay out in the woods after dark, for the locals swear the 'witte wieven' still roam at night... Location:
Shire of Polderslot (Enschede, The Netherlands)

[WES] Spring Captaincy

Come one, come all to the final rites of the Goddess Diana, the Ludi saeculares! These rites of Rome were four historic celebrations of pageantry, games, and sacrifices to close the six day celebration honoring the goddess Diana. In the days preceding this semi-centennial event, heralds were sent about to invite the people to a spectacle which no one had ever beheld, and which no one would ever behold again. Great sporting events and sacrifices took place in the Circus Flaminius to discourage evil deities from entering the city. Location:
Barony of Winter's Gate (Fairbanks, Alaska)

[EAS] Cooking Collegium II

Mangia, mangia, mangia! But before you can eat, you have to learn how to cook! The Barony of Settmour Swamp invites you to learn all about creating feasts at our Cooking Collegium on June 28th, from 10 am to 10 pm at St. Paul's Church in Flemington, NJ.

We have classes to satisfy your brain and your stomach, for beginner chefs to advanced ones. Throughout the day, cooking, brewing, and herb related classes will be taught. We will have three types of classes: technique and theory, tasting (sampling foods), and hands-on (cooking or prepping food). And everyone will be a chef, as the food prepped in the hands-on classes will be served throughout the day buffet style, with a large buffet feast at the end of the day. Location:
Barony of Settmour Swamp (Flemington, New Jersey)

[WES] Duchess War

War is a popular theme in the West ... today in the lands of Vinhold, The Mists and Cynagua meet in friendly combat to train their armies as the kingdom prepares to march north to meet our brothers in arms of An Tir in battle and then many follow their King and Queen to war at Pennsic. There are fighter practices in many areas, but in the Shire of Wolfscairn is an outstanding opportunity to hone and sharpen your warband skills. Yes ...once again...the Shire of Wolfscairn invites all to Duchess War... the best small war ever. Location:
