Imagine the scene: 150 or more gentles garbed in soft wools and linens. Banners and pennons fly gently in the breeze that stirs the firs. Nearby is a coffee house, where stories of past renown and future conquest are spun, while spindles twirl a more tangible yarn. To one side, knights and nobles practice the arts martial, while consorts discuss bruise remedies. Flocks of charming children run errands when not playing on the lush green grass. A short walk away there is singing beside the waterhole and splashing in the cool deep waters. A hedgehog snuffles idly by.

The rich hunting fields of Politarchopolis have remained untouched for over
a year. Baronial huntsmen report an abundance of game feeding off the
fertile fields and pastures. Such abundance has also brought poachers and
larger wildlife to the forests of Politarchopolis. Therefore, to lessen the
ravages upon our harvest by animals and thieves alike, let it be known that
the Baron and Baroness of Politarchopolis invite one and all to the Hunt.
