Kingdom of Outlands

Horns sound and drums roll, banners dance on the breeze, Chevaliers parade in armor shining and merchants call their wares. Mummers prance, jesters grin, laughter swells like the seas, Archers shoulder their quivers full and music fills the air. Juggler's entrance, food delights, excitement buzzes like the bees, Fencers flash their blades dazzling and little children stare.

Are you a pansy, a dandy, or is your liver gilded? Do you need to stay indoors with air-conditioning at 68 degrees? If you answered "Yes," then you should stay home, because men and women who are tougher, stronger and better than you will ever be, are incapable of completing our competition. Remember just stay home and try not to over tax your frail and weak constitution. Last year over 50% of our contestants dropped out due to heat and or exhaustion! If on the other hand, you crave a challenge, long for the struggle of combat and desire to test your fortitude; come vie for Blackwater Keep Defender. P.S. We will feed you till you pop, if you are so inclined.

Buon Giorno one and all. The time is 1564 and Italy is seeing a change for the better. Michelangelo completed the dome of St. Peter's Church in Rome, Galileo Galilei was born near Pisa, the municipal palace of Genoa was built, and Francesco de' Medici became Duke of Florence. It is truly a time to rejoice and celebrate even here in the Citadel of the Southern Pass as we invite all to Citadel's 12th night - The Italian Renaissance.

Bonjour! Nous sommes en Paris, en 1405 Anno Domini*……
The Ruling House of France, the House of Valois, is still smarting from the effects of their sound defeat by the English at Crecy in 1346, and at Poitiers in 1356, where the king was captured but not ransomed for some time. The current King and Queen of France, Charles VI and Isabeau, reign from palaces in Rouen and Paris, well attended by their children most notably the Dauphin, Louis, duc de Guyenne. The Great Schism has been in effect for 25 years, leaving Popes at both Rome and Avignon. Innocent VII has just been elected to the nearest Papal seat in Avignon, and he is attempting to heal the Schism to little effect. The Crusades are still an idea to be toyed with every few years, but no concerted effort to retake the Holy Land has been mounted in some time. The world is turning colder in the wake of the Black Death 50 years ago, leaving France's population nearly
decimated, but this devastation has left the both the middle classes and the aristocracy with genuine opportunities for advancement. Bienvenue a Paris!**
