Our beloved Shire of the Rio de Las Animas is in need of NEW defenders!
Our Defenders have served us well and honorably but it is time for them to step down and NEW blood to arise and take their places in guarding our beloved Shire.
We seek an individual whose skill with the Rapier blade will bring us honor throughout the Known world in their defense of our Shire.
The Silver Pass is in need of a champion who will stand out above all others in Heavy Combat.
In archery the Shire is in need of a Champion of the Silver Arrow to guard its gates when trouble arises.
Join us on August 18, 2012 in a test of skills and a day of revelry and merryment and prove your worth!
Activities throughout the day include a rolling pin toss for those ladies wishing to show off their finesse, (stick) horse racing, arts and science activities and a siege competition, a hunt to rid RiverHold of the dreaded Silver Pass plague rats, and a lunch to benefit the Kingdom Travel Fund which will tempt even the most hardened of palates.
Please contact Lady Rhiannon, email firstname.lastname@example.org for the menu and to reserve lunch. We are limited to 80 servings and a cutoff date of August 8.
