One and all are invited to Settmour Swamp to celebrate with us as Their Majesties Lucan and Yana invest Alexander MacGregor and Rhiannon de Licorne as our new Baron and Baroness!
Mudthaw will feature a wide variety of activities: tournaments in Armored Combat, Rapier, and Youth Combat, Archery, Thrown Weapons, and an array of Fine Merchants. Artisans can enter their works in a Competition with the theme of "Heraldry", in addition to an Exhibit for anyone who would like to display completed or in-progress work. We will sate your appetites with a lunch dayboard and a grand feast, cooked by Wilhelm van Utrecht, in the evening. Their Majesties will hold Royal Court, along with the final Court of Baron Teric and Baroness Paigan, and the first Court of Alexander and Rhiannon. The event will conclude with dancing to the music of the Bhakaili Branslers!
The autocrat is Mistress Jessa d'Avondale (Marla Lecin). You can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: Lady Drueta de la Rosa will be in attendance, collecting for the Toys for Tots program.
