Their Royal Highnesses, Lars and Mary, called upon armored fighters, rapier fighters and artisans of the Realm to compete at Their Tournament of Champions yesterday, April 1 under the auspices of the Shire of Rokeclif (Taylor, WI). The winners of those tournaments (Viscount Daffyd--Armoured; Lord Ambrose--Rapier; and Viscountess Gwyneth--A&S) will serve in the royal retinue when Their Highnesses ascend to the throne next weekend. Other tourneys took place at 4:01 PM, in celebration of the day. An incredible feast was served by Lord Maewyn MacLaughlan and minions that included roast goose, spaetzel and fresh fried fritters with whipped cream and cherry sauce. Feast entertainment suitable to the day was provided by Warwick Consort's Evil Twins. Everyone knew they were good when they cracked me up.
It should be noted that out of the 15 entries in the A&S competition by the 3 competitors 8 of them were food dishes. As befitting a Kingdom made up of Midwesterners. ;-) (See, it's not just Windhaven *vwg*)
Many thanks to the Shire of Rokeclif for pitching in together and working so hard to make this new concept work as well as it did. And thanks to Their Stellar Highnesses for helping show us another way to play the game.
