Hidden Mountain's Baronial Birthday & Pilgrimage

description:
Hidden Mountain invites one and all to join the pilgrimage to see the miracle of the Hidden Mountain revealed! Stop by the various shrines of saints on your way and gather badges. Sharpen your swords for there are bandits and highwaymen galore! Shop till you drop and play games of skill and chance or drink from the waters of the enchanted well.

We encourage everyone to host a shrine, make a badge to supply to the Pilgrims and place a badge in our A&S competitions. For more ideas on Shrines and Pilgrimages go to our website for links to help you on your journey. Hidden Mountain's Birthday is also the time we quest for the next generation of Baronial Champions, so ready yourselves for the challenges that will be set before you.
