Kingdom of Lochac

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. Location:
Barony of Southron Gaard (Waipara, New Zealand)

In addition, we will have a divers array of entertainments to amuse and delight the populace; a traveller's potluck lunch (please bring a dish to share) and a bountiful evening feast on the Saturday, combat scenarios for heavy, light and rapier fighters (fighters: please come prepared for a mixed combat scenario), a 'Plague Rat' quest to challenge the youthful, song, dance, games, and revelry. All are welcome to share good company and good cheer as we toast our victories.
