Thirty years ago, a tall warrior strode out of the wilds of Fredonia. Stopping at the shore of the great Erie Lake, she saw that it was good. So, did Morgan Elandris make the Rhydderich Hael her home. And having no further concern, she and her companions sought adventure in the East. Many wars and feuds did Morgan fight. Honor and fear were heaped upon her name and, in time, she became a Baroness by her own hand.... But that's a different story.
Yes, in AS XI, the foundation of our Barony was laid, and three decades later we stand tall and proud at our achievements. In honor of our 30th anniversary, we wish to show our gratitude to the Kingdom of AEthelmearc and our neighbors by holding a free event. That's right, the event is free to any and all who show up and tell our Troll, "I like the Rhydderich Hael." There will be a feast offered at a modest fee and a lunch sideboard.
There will be fencing in the morning, run by Don Ivan ap Myrddin to honor one of the lost pearls of the Hael, THL Caitlin Dierdre of Errelyn.
As this is a Masked Ball, there will be a ball, with masks, and dancing. The theme will be what were you wearing 30 years ago. Come in your oldest garb that still fits you. Bonus points if your garb fits your offspring and you make them wear it. Feron helms will be legal for this day only (only for protection for Strip the Willow). There will be a desert revel after feast, the theme is chocolate, with a prize going to the best period and non period chocolate deserts.
Autocrat will be Caleb Reynolds firstname.lastname@example.org
