[ATE] Tavern Tourney

Join your brothers (and sisters) in arms at the Tavern Aurelius for a day of food, drink, contest, and celebration. Yes it is time for Tavern Tourney. Huzzah!!

In Ascalon on Christmas Eve in the year 1169, the Christian army has just returned from their second defeat in Egypt. The Hospitallers were part of that army and, of course do not really have the Christmas spirit. Michaelis Aurelius, a trader that often does business with the Hospitallers, has put together a Christmas Eve party to cheer his friends. Wanting to include all of his friends, Michaelis and his lovely wife Kateryn, also invited the Templars who refused to go with the army to Egypt and are often rivals with the Hospitallers. While discussing the party, with the Grand Masters of each order, an argument arose as to which was more in the Christmas spirit, the Reindeer of the Germans or the Gnomes of the French. Come join Michaelis party and support your order by showing your spirit. Are you a Templar displaying your Antlers or are you Hospitaller showing your pointed ears or gnomish garb. Come let us eat, drink, and be merry Location:
Barony of Twin Moons (Chandler, Arizona)
