[LOC] Rhythm & Brews Tourney and Feast

Unto the populace of Lochac does Mordenvale extend its invitation to join in on our very first annual Rhythm & Brews Tourney and Feast.

Come along for a Rose Tourney to honour the time old court of love in a spectacular St Valentine's boast of chivalry and prowess.

Settle in for an evening of entertainment from the bawdy to the harmonic. Be refreshed by period beverages of the alcoholic and non-alcoholic varities while feasting in true Mordenvalian style.

Go to sleep in a dorm environment or camp beneath the beautiful Central Coast stars; awaking to a satisfying cooked breakfast to be had while you peruse the wares from our Merchants.
