A civilized society

Nolene Triska of the Estacada News reports on her visit to the "Bows and Blades" event held recently in the Kingdom of An Tir.

The wording on the flyer was, well...interesting. "The Laws and Statutes of the United States and the State of Oregon will be in full force and effect. Violations will be reported to the appropriate mundane authorities." And later: "Please do not use the Pied Piper as a babysitter."

The word "mundane" wasn’t meant as a put-down, I knew. The word just referred to anything modern. I was at the Society for Creative Anachronism’s "Bows and Blades" event, an archery and rapier academy held at Timber Park August 11, 12 and 13.
