Feast of St. Dismas
November 16 (6:00 PM) - 18 (10:00 AM), 2018
Canton of Cydllan Downs
Join the Canton of Cyddlain Downs for a day of fighting, feasting and merriment in the spirit of St. Dismas. Shenanigans will abound as Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottinghill seek to foul one another's plans as the populace is encouraged to participate in the mischief!
Martial Activities: Harken y'all, from the Armored marshal! There is trouble a brewin' in Sherwood Forest! Sir Guy of Gisborne is tired of waiting for Maid Marian's acceptance of his marriage proposal, so he has sent his men to find and bring her to him! He himself is busy preparing a trap for Robin Hood that will probably fail. Meanwhile Robin's men have heard of Marian's plight, and since Robin is busy foiling Guy's trap, have taken upon themselves to find and rescue Maid Marian. Unbeknownst to all, except the narrator and yourselves, Maid Marian went 'shrooming in the lands of Nottinghill Coille, and after tasting a mushroom, has fallen into a deep sleep somewhere in the forests there! Will Guy's men be successful? Can Robin's men protect her? Will Marian swear off 'shrooming? These answers can be found at the Dismas Maid Marian Melee or DMMM! This will be fun! The melee will be an unlimited resurrection forest battle, where the objective is to find Maid Marian hidden in the forest and then bring her back to one's keep. All fighting will be in the forest as outside is considered archer death. The keeps are the resurrection point and the one carrying "Maid Marian" cannot fight but can be killed. Further details will be passed as necessary.
