This is a friendly reminder that the Shire's annual event, the Gathering of Crusaders, is a little over 3 weeks away. The event will be on Saturday, January 26th at Riverside Park next to the Territorial Prison. The event will feature the return of the Fighter's Pit, where you can bet on your favorite fighter (or just bribe the bookie to make sure he or she wins).
We'll also have some period games, lunch prepared by Ladies Imma and Constance, and the always popular auction.
