Night Under a Faie MoonCANCELLED
April 17 (5:00 PM) - 19 (12:00 PM), 2020
Barony of Lochmere
As the residents of the town of Smeewick gather Friday eve at the local Tavern, the Rusty Souse, tales of minor mischief and petty thievery are on everyone’s lips. Swords have been found hanging from trees. The left shoes of everyone in town are missing. Fillings of pies have been replaced with flowers and pine fronds. Some members of the populace suspect the faie folk. Are the faie friends? Foes? A little bit of both? The Barony of Lochmere invites you to join us for an event based in the Tudor English town of Smeewick and inspired by Shakespeare’s Midsummer’s Night Dream. Whether you call them faie, brownies, sprites, or…, they are all around us. Festivities will start Friday night at 7pm in the main hall and carry through Saturday night. Expect fighting, feasting, and fun.

|Arts & Sciences:||
There will be an A&S brewing competition at Night under a Faie Moon. We will be looking for the standard three categories, beer, mead and cordials. If you would like to submit wine we will include it with the mead unless there are a significant number of entries. Extra points will be awarded for those who manage to tie their entry in with the Tudor or Faie theme.
Those who would be aspiring judges are welcome. Contact Baron Drogo (DrogoD[AT]gmail.com) with any questions or desires to help.
Masks for a Masque Competition
Create a mask that would have be suitably worn at a Tudor Masque. Masks suggestions include, but are not limited to, gods/goddess, fairies, and other mythical creatures. If you wish to wear it during the day, submit a picture of the mask w/ your name and documentation and we will come find you.
Bring the Faie to your Day Shade.
Help us set the mood and let the faie know that we are friends, not foes. Decorate your day shade keeping with the theme of the event. Register your day shade at the A&S table inside the Rusty Souse Tavern.
Just beyond the hearths of Smeewick, the Goblin Market opens each night. Sometimes, the villagers (particularly the courageous, curious, or foolish ones) stray near.
Your task is to write an original narrative in
prose, verse, or song about an original character from Smeewick who has an
encounter with the Goblin Market. Your work should be your best attempt at
period style, but no documentation is needed. Feedback will be given to those
who would like, but this is a Bardic Challenge, a chance for cooperative
storytelling, and is not a competition. Those who enter will receive a small
token of esteem and a hearty round of applause! Audience is welcome to attend
to learn more about the strange village they are visiting for the day's
festivities! Contact Lord Ishmael with questions at mparden107
