Combat Stitchery: A Call for Help!
Alas dear friends, I am, once again in need of your assistance. It doth seem that my estate is under siege, my jewels and clothing plundered, my water source has been poisoned and my food cellar is nearly depleted. I send this, my last hope, my dear messenger forward to bear witness to my need.
Just outside my door for these last months has been my foe, my cousin, has ravaged my countryside, destroyed my fields and has eaten my stock. My people live in fear of the rogue and I am not able to defeat him alone. The villain had waited until he thought that all the king's men were off to the war at Estrella.
I do have a plan, if you will assist me. Please, make yourselves known at Empty Acres where he can see you and your army awaiting my signal. With the materials you secretly pass to my good stewards and fair chatelaines I will be able to bluff my way through treaty negotiations. The good people who I have come to know and care deeply for, have offered to make clothing from the remnants we have managed to salvage from the fire and smoke that have prevailed these many nights. With the right clothes I could fool our foe into thinking that his efforts have had no effect upon us.
What say you?
Will you send us the means to make good upon my plan?
Come find me at Mixed Weapons War's beginning court. There we will have supplies you need to clothing fit for a treaty. (material, thread, lace, trim, buttons, etc. etc.)
And come Mixed Weapons War, bring your own team of tailors and seamsters or join one on site. We need people who are willing to sew a garment with what we have available.
