Harvest Court

On Oct. 31, A.S. XX, the branch called Sentinels’ Keep was founded, in the Region of Artemisia. Since then we have grown, from incipient Shire to Barony. Many of our founding folk have wandered away, but many more have come to take their places. Now Sentinels’ Keep invites her many friends from near and far to help us celebrate 20 years of our existence, on October 21. (This year we’re half as old as the Society!) Location:
Barony of Sentinels' Keep (Arlee, Montana)

Midge March Melee

description:
On the northern border of the Barony of Gryphon's Lair lies a vast marsh land that some would argue belongs to the bordering Shire (why anyone would want to claim a marsh nobody knows, but that is not the point). Several years ago the lands were disputed and from this the Midge Marsh Melee was created. The Barony, for some reason, wants to keep hold of the marshlands and to honor this, and their first birthday, we invite all to come to this grand event and enjoy. You will find many fun and entertaining things to keep you occupied throughout the day (so you don't smell the marshes or notice the flies). Location:
Barony of Gryphon's Lair (Ogden, Utah)

Middle Eastern War VII

description:
The smell of battle covers the ancient battlefield like the clock of Chiron, and bitter metal smell of death permeates the cold dark. Upon this battlefield where a crooked flag hangs askew on top a lone hill, a long lost voice whispers of valor and victories long past.

A knight comes into view, dressed in well-used armor; he crests the hill and stands for a moment silent in the refreshing wind. He reaches out to the banner, and straightens it before setting it more deeply in to the moist earth, where the wind catches the edge of the flag pulling it taunt in the breeze, revealing the three purple arrows upon a field of gold. Location:
Shire of Arrows' Flight (Provo, Utah)

Once again the warriors of the now endangered Barony are called upon to push this threat back into the briny depths from whence it reared it's vile head.
