When you think about Twelfth Night, perhaps the Shakespearean play comes to mind, which may then make you think about Queen Elizabeth I (1533-1603) and then you might start to think about other things that are late period. We would like to encourage everyone to come show off their finest in late period garb for their persona at this year's Twelfth Night event.

These fighters are a bit green so they will need some gentle force to correct their errant ways. There is a $7.00 site fee plus a $3.00 non member fee and a $5 feast fee.

Gwen & Lori, Coronets of Rivenoak invite you to Tournament to determine their champion. There will be both a heavy armored and rapier champion, as well as a boffer tourney to determine the Junior Champion (two age groups). As we in Rivenoak are a little "different," the tourney will be run a little "different" (expect other than double elimination). Also, as we in Rivenoak are also known as "gameplayers", there will be several game tournaments to choose from, or bring your own, and challenge us with your favorite. We are taking applications for any that want to sponsor a game competition. Contact the autocrat if interested.
