Madoc ab Owain Geyned was possibly one the 13 children of Owain Gweyned, who died in 1170. During this time the children all waged war on each other to determine who would lead the people. Madoc and his brother, Rhirid, sailed from Llandrillo during this time. Where did they go?
The goal of the event is too have the seasoned fighters to fight the young youthful fighters; and also to celebrate the Birthday Viscountess Gwenllhain Rhiannon of Dragon Keep, MSCA, OP, and her first combat Authorization. Also the seasoned fighters will be fighting the young youthful fighters. Birthday Cake will be there.
To facilitate determining your age group; we are using two significant milestones. A young youthful fighter is younger than Master Gwen's First Authorization Card, and a seasoned fighter should be at least as old as Master Gwen.
To find out how old you are. Ask her; she will be able to determine your age in her own unique manner(armor and weapons will be required for the determination).
All seasoned fighters should come prepared with their best “Back in the Day” story, pun, metaphor, similie as the younger fighters need to learn them.
So this day will include Birthday Cake, fighting, good time by all. We are checking to see if it is possible to have showers available. Also, we have been informed that the site is dry, period containers only.
What does Madoc have to do with this? Absolutely nothing, look him up and come prepared to discuss the validity of his existence and what he did in the world.
