[ATL] Hidden Mountain 25th Birthday Celebration

description:
The year was Anno Societatis 18. His most noble and Gracious Majesty, King Olaf Askoldsson was traveling the southern reaches of his Kingdom, and came upon a Mountain, Hidden at the southern tip of Atlantia. King Olaf found the people there to be good, strong, and wise. He and his beautiful Queen Aislinn Schattenwald saw fit to charter a Barony in these southern lands, and was inspired to named it for the mountain he had found. He ordered the populace to choose leaders for their new Barony, and with His Blessing, Eldon Ungol of the Phoenix and Marie-Simone de Barjavel la Fildena became the first Baron and Baroness of these new lands. Then, as the night fell, the Mountain became Hidden once more, only to reappear once a year, to celebrate her recognition and the work by these fine people, and all who have followed. Location:
Barony of Hidden Mountain (Kings Mountain, South Carolina)

“'We give that learning back to the public by educating them. Then we encourage them to join us,' said Dirk Hermance, who was dressed in the loose-fitting clothing of a northern European merchant from the early 15th century." Hermance was speaking about the demo hosted by members of the Shire of Rivenvale recently in Youngstown, Ohio. Reporter Don Shilling of the Vindicator had the story. (photos)
