As we return to our homes after a long summer campaign, the sounds of war fade and the sounds of merriment grow. Laughter replaces the battle cry as the populace of Atlantia gathers to celebrate the glories of Pennsic in an atmosphere of frivolity and fun.
The glorious Barony of Storvik invites you to an evening of enjoyment at its traditional Post Pennsic Dessert Revel. This year's theme is "Fun and Games," so come out and play some games! You may already know that cribbage and chess are period, but have you ever played Nine Men's Morris (featured in the most recent Tournaments Illuminated), Fox and Geese, or Hazard? Bring your cards, dice, board games, and toys. Weather permitting, you can try outdoor ball-and-stick games in the small, woodsy glen (no martial activities). Veteran game players are encouraged to teach the rules and strategies to new contestants of all ages.

In the past months, we have seen war rage in the Kingdom of Gleann Abhann. We celebrated great victories and mourned our losses. Rumors have now reached the ears of His Majesty Michael and His Highness Ragnarr that war will rage yet again between the Kingdoms of the East and the Middle. As we gear up to again take up arms in support of our Sovereigns, we look to find solace while we can. We look to the Wastelands, an oasis in the heart of our fair lands, a meeting place for the fierce enemies and loyal friends alike to gather in peace for a day of tournament, feasting, and fun.
