[ATL] Baronial Birthday & Investiture

Alas! Alack! It is a sad day for the people of Hawkwood as they  must bid  adieu to Their Excellencies, Thorgrimr and Adeliza. However, our  monumental sorrow is tempered with a great joy! Their Atlantian Majesties will  invest a new Baronial Coronet to oversee Their lands in Hawkwood! Let all of Atlantia join us as we celebrate not only Hawkwood's Baronial Birthday, but also an Investiture of new nobility.

MARTIAL ACTIVITIES: Any new Baronial Coronet requires a  healthy Court to surround them. Join in contests martial to determine new  Baronial Champions for Hawkwood. Heavy and Rapier contests will be held both for  fun and for positions in the Court. Compete to impress! Target Archery will also  be
included!


ARTS & SCIENCES: Pageantry is the theme of the day  and the populace is encouraged to show their finest heraldic display and to  bring items and stories associated with Hawkwood's history. There will be prizes  for the Best Personal and for Best Baronial Heraldic Display. A special  competition will be
held for best New Baronial Regalia Item donated to the  Barony.
