On Saturday, March 18th, 2006, the long-hallowed Performers' Revel will take place in its traditional location in the vasty halls of Caer Bear. The theme of the event is as it has always been - this is a revel of performers, by performers and for performers, and as such, all who attend must contribute one performance for the delight of your fellows. But Fear Not! "Performance" casts a wide net. There will be singing and dancing and poetry and story-telling and the playing of instruments and jokery and juggling and dramatic presentations and anything else that you can make a case for as a Performance Art! Novice performers are especially welcome!

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.
