Pennsic 41: Invitation to the Enchanted Ground

Duke Cariadoc of the Bow encourages those seeking an authentic Pennsic experience to consider visiting or camping with the Enchanted Ground at the upcoming War.

His Grace writes:

As usual, we will be doing our in persona encampment a little downhill from West Kingdom camp. The idea is to have a place within which we are all acting as period people at some indefinite time and place in period.

The basic requirements are:

  1. Nothing visible from outside your tent that is obviously and unnecessarily out of period.

  2. Willingness to stay in persona while inside the boundary of the encampment.

If interested, let me know and I'll be happy to answer questions.

I expect to be doing a bardic circle every evening of the second week, and people are of course invited. You don't have to present anything if you don't want to. If you do present something, it should not be obviously out of period, should not break the illusion we are maintaining. Similarly for conversation. A song that was actually composed in 1620 is fine, an apology for it's being out of period is not.
