Raven's Cove Baronial Birthday

September 02- 04, 2016
Barony of Raven's Cove


Return to Ancient Greece, when Gods and Titans ruled the world, worshipped by their faithful, yet pitifully human, followers. A day of rigorous and epic battles await you! Which side will you choose? The Gods or the Titans? Spectators will be able to place wagers on what side will triumph, placing bets on fighters on the field, both armored AND rapier. The individual that has acquired the most coins at the end of the day is the winner of the betting pool and will receive a prize. In order to get the most coins, you might want to make sure to place wagers on both fields. Also, wear your best Greek fashion to the event; silent judges will have their eyes peeled, attempting to find the best dressed man/woman of the day! The best dressed man and best dressed woman will each receive a prize for their godlike attire. Do YOU have what it takes to outshine the gods?
