[NOR] Bardic Madness XXI

East to West, North to South, the Bardic arts are beloved across all of Northshield. Last year, we celebrated the 20th Bardic Madness in Windhaven where it all began in the far eastern reaches of the Kingdom. This year, travel west with us to make ring the hills of Schattentor!

With luck, the numbers of the Bards of Northshield will be swelled by our kinsmen from the Outlands and elsewhere, and we will make a merry noise together.

Challenges for Bardic Madness XXI will include themes of “magic” numbers, coming of age, journeys through time and space, natural beauty, and (of course) drinking songs. Challenges will be arranged into four Fyts, with breaks for classes and fellowship between them, and a tasty feast during the last Fyt.

Bards of all sorts, whether song-smiths, poets, story-tellers, or instrumentalists are invited to attend and participate. Patronship is also strongly encouraged – what is a performance without an audience, after all – so do join us to appreciate these talented gentles even if you are not inclined toward performance yourself.
