As the far off and distant drums of WAR call to us, many are left to wonder…..Who will plant our crops, take care of our cattle and raise our children while we are away?

As any fighter will tell you, those we leave behind are as important as those who fight next to us. Location:

Caer Galen Midwinter

description:
Welcome to Rome, 1497. As you admire the wondrous art and high culture of this, the finest of cities, be sure to watch your back. Intrigue is at its height as noble families vie for prominence. Even the mightiest houses are rocked with scandal. Lucrezia Borgia has accused her husband, Giovanni Sforza, of impotence and is filing for a divorce. In retaliation, Giovanni claims that his young bride has indulged in incestuous affairs with both her brother and her father! But beware of whom you share gossip with. Spies are everywhere in the courts, and the assassin's blade is ever ready to avenge a perceived slight. Location:
Barony of Caer Galen (Boulder, Colorado)
