The beginning of a bright, spring day where the sun shines down on Smeewick is abruptly disturbed by the sounds of fighting. The once quiet town is being filled with the noise between two households with their fighting. The constant bickering has boiled over from mere words, to swords between the two households. Through the upcoming weeks both sides will be spreading words to their members to bolster their houses. So pay heed to the messengers that may come or to those that the may receive letters, for your household may be calling. Arm yourself to prepare for the battle ahead.
Martial Activities: Welcome to Atlantia’s premiere rapier event. Rapier at Night on the Town X will be a day of melees. You will be a part of the internal fighting between two guild houses in the town of Smeewick and the surrounding area. All fighting will be heavy rapier, with combat archery for certain pre-set scenarios. Because of the open nature of the fighting, no combat archery will occur outside of these scenarios. Authorizations are at 9am.
Arts & Sciences: Teachers in the arts will be present to show interested citizens about their craft. This is a wonderful chance to "try it before you buy it." Various arts and sciences will be available during the day to sample, instructions how to do them, and enjoy them. Note that there is no fee associated with participation in this activity. If you have any questions, please contact Master Corun MacAnndra at email@example.com
