The wars are over for now and it has been a profitable season for all. The fighters are returning home after hard fought battles and they are returning with their bounty. The farmers have finished harvesting their summer crops and are taking a well-earned rest. Now is the time to come together and celebrate with festivities and shopping.
Merchants have replenished their inventories and are gathering in Stierbach for the festivities. Come spend the day shopping, visit with old and new friends, watch the martial activities, pick up those treasured Twelfth Night presents that can only be found here at Holiday Faire, enter into the arts and sciences competition and don't forget to place a bid or two at the silent auction!

So before heading off on the next campaign, come join us for a day of relaxation and recreation at Games Tourney, Atlantia’s premier gaming event.

Last fall, the forces of Aethelmearc met the Atlantian hordes led by the Barony of Highland Foorde on the field of battle in a grand quest to retrieve the Sylver Apple of Sylvan Glen, the talisman that bestows bounty and prosperity on our shire. Led by our mighty King Christopher, fierce Queen Morgen, and the brave Defenders of the Glen, we emerged from the fray victorious.
Having settled this property dispute, the populace of Sylvan Glen had hoped for peaceful respite from the long years of uncertainty and war. For an all too brief moment, it looked as if tat peace might be realized, but that peace was placed in grave jeopardy as reports of bandits attacking Highland Foorde’s Western Road began to trickle in. As these attacks have become more brazen and frequent, the hope for peace between Sylvan Glen and Highland Foorde has become much dimmer.
