Sir Sable is back! And he has kidnapped the Baron and Baroness! The college of St.Felix invites you once again to join us for Sable Knight on January 23, 2010!
But do not be deceived! This is not the Sir Sable you remember. Angered that the college of St.Felix has not paid him his tribute (as they are but poor college student) Sir Sable has taken the B&B to his fortress to be held for ransom. The barony must rise to protect them!
Each person will be given 5 coins with their site fee to raise funds either for or against Sir Sable.
Each hardsuit fighter must choose a side, either fight as a Sable Minion or a Defender of the Baron and Baroness. If you have EVER been in the college of St. Felix you MUST fight for Sir Sable. If sides are too uneven we'll draw names.
A fortress will be set up on the field. Sir Sable and his minions must guard the Sable Fortress against the Baronial Defenders. This will be melee fighting - best two out of three, to the last man standing. The side which wins, wins all the gold that the other side carries (5 coins per person).
For the truly brave among us, there is Armored Twister! The winner will have the chance to fight Sir Sable one on one as the Baronial Defender. Enter the game on a donation in exchange for coins. Half of the twister board will be marked by Sir Sable, and if you lose on one of those spots, your coins go to him. If not, they go to the B&B.
Rogue Noir, Sir Sable's Right hand man, will be guarding the B&B deep inside the fortress. All rapier fighters must also choose a side to fight for. The defenders may challenge the Sable supporters.
ARTS & SCIENCES
A&S Musical chairs will be held! Entrants must "buy" a chair with a donation of a hand-made item or craft supply (old projects, paint, embroidery thread, herbs, fabric etc..). All items will be put in a giant basket along with some bonus A&S items and nicknacks. The winner of the musical chairs takes the whole basket home.
Bards are needed to provide the music for the Musical chairs game, Brownie points (coins) for whoever can end their song on the most awkward or funny word.
There will be a break from 12-1:30pm for rest, water and lunch baskets! PLEASE DONATE A BASKET!!! Each basket should have lunch for two or more. All baskets will put up for auction.
As in past years, funds raised from the Lunch Basket auction will go to support the College of St.Felix. This is their primary fundraiser, the college relies on the generosity of the barony.
At the end of the day, all can go to celebrate the release of the B&B (be it by arms or ransom) at the Boar's Den!
