See sins, swashbuckling and spice at the Feast of The Seven Deadly Sins as the Barony of Delftwood celebrates the Silk Road on February 16, 2008! Come join us at a site not visited in many years, May Memorial Unitarian Universalist Church in Dewitt, NY, where we will offer you a variety of pleasures from the Near and Far East including a hoffla, a Japanese tea ceremony, a Japanese dayboard, and a Feast starting in China and working westward to Europe through the removes.
There will be as much fencing as can be fit into the day. Fencers, please save your lust-inducing boots for after the tournament and wear shoes with non-marking soles while you spar in a tournament with a Silk Road flair! In addition to the main tournament, there will also be a tournament to determine Delftwood's Baronial Rapier Champion.
This event marks the return of the Den of Iniquity for guests 18 and over where sinful games will happen. There will be family-friendly space for those of a less sinful bent featuring, among other things, a Seven Deadly Sins/Silk Road-themed sotelty competition, and the Baronial Bardic Competition. The site is discretely damp (beer, wine, and mead only; please no hard liquor), so one should never rule out a brewer's roundtable.
