Unto the Known World, do Their Excellencies Sir Gregor and Lady Monika, Baron and Baroness of al-Barran wish to invite one and all to celebrate this yuletide season with Them at al-Barran's Midwinter.
Let us reminisce over all that makes al-Barran the great Barony it has become. From Sir Raymond the Quiet, Baron al-Barran to the two reigns of Sir Stefan and Mistress Beau, to our present Baron and Baroness Sir Gregor and Lady Monika.
The day is filled with activities for all ages. Along with a garb competition- don your persona's best garb and strut your stuff, a period table decoration competition, and in true German tradition a gingerbread house competition- be creative!!! For those who are a touch more daring there will be an outrageous codpiece competition (REMEMBER TO KEEP IT KID FRIENDLY). For more information contact Lady Bianca TBiancaM1@aol.com.
This year there are 9 different site token designs. You will receive one when you check in at gate. You may purchase another for $1.50 or all 9 of them for $10. If you would like to pre-order, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
