Algarada

description:
Be it known that the Shire of Alcazar de Brioga will once again hold an algarada, a quick raid across our borders, and the festivities that will follow such an occasion. To this end it calls upon any good subjects of Drachenwald to assist them in making this show of strength, be it by force of arms, ability in the arts and sciences or simply with your gentle presence. The place will be the manor of La Vid, by the monastery of the same name, in the Province of Burgos, Spain. This is close to no man's land, yet safe enough for ladies and unarmed men to gather and feast. All are encouraged to come on Thursday and take part in the inspection of local fortifications on Friday. A border raid will hopefully take place on Saturday, during which non-combatants will make merry in many ways. This will be followed by celebrations to the honor of Drachenwald and our Location:

Summer's Return

As it has happened for centuries, the seasons continue to change. In October, Lady Autumn held the peace until it was time for Lady Winter to take over. It is now April and Lady Spring holds the peace until it is time for Lady Summer to return. The Stronghold of Nebelwald invites you to join us for a day dedicated to the arts and sciences honoring the eventual return of Summer. The theme of this event is all things summer. By honoring Lady Summer, we hope to speed her return. The morning will be dedicated to the Mything Quest, a Gathering of Goslings, and an assortment of classes for all ages and interests. Lunch will be served at midday so we can mentally and physically prepare for the afternoon activities. The afternoon will be dedicated to another set of classes as well as discussion groups, populace choice contests, and whatever activities the populace wishes to engage in.

Whack! Thud! Ow!

Spring is in the air and it is that time of year again. The flora start to blossom, the fauna start to look for mates, and Lady Summer begins to plan her return.  As the weather becomes warmer, the valiant fighters of Drachenwald leave their winter hibernation and take to the field.  The air is full of the cheering of the spectators, the calls of the heralds, and the unmistakable sounds of the heavy fighters - "whack" as rattan strikes rattan, "thud" as a blow lands, and "ow" just before the blow is called good.
