Two great haunted Doges and their allies match wits in 15th-century Florentine style, plotting in contests of Sword, Rapier, and Chess to win the day and be hailed as "The Most Mighty, Cultured, Cunning and, uhh... Frightening City-State."
This is a combined Tournaments and Dance event. There will be heavy, rapier, and chess tournaments as well as dancing all day, and a Masquerade Dance Ball through the evening. Everyone is encouraged to bring masks to add to the ambiance. We planned this event soon after Halloween for a reason!

With harvest behind us and winter looming ever closer, Trinovantia Nova invites you all to come help us ring out the season with another frighteningly fun Masquerade! This year's theme is "The Nightmare Before Yule", loosely based on Tim Burton's animated musical Nightmare Before Christmas. Scheduled events include fighting, fencing, a Chess Tournament, and of course the evening Masquerade Ball, where we hope to see many goblins and spirits come out to play!
