Pirates of the Mediterranean

description:
Come along on a voyage of adventure and reward, with the Barony of Seleone, as we cruise the blue waters from the coast of Brittany to the Isle of Cyprus. Bring your rapier gear to defend your crew in the town battles. Heavy fighters, ever wanted to pillage a village? Or defend one? How about defending your ship in a mock naval battle? Test your skill on the live weapons range or relax and enjoy our many classes from Pirates 101 to Shipboard Cuisine. Young scalawags (youth fighters) will also have their chance to fight for their share of the bounty. Enjoy a wonderful feast with courses from every port of call. Afterwards, the Barony invites you to join us for dancing and revelry.

Breaking News! We are pleased and honoured to announce that, at this event, will be the Investiture of Morgan of Osprey as our new Baron. Please plan to attend to say farewell to Baron and Baroness Thaddeus and Daphne and to welcome Baron Morgan.
