Barony of Storvik
Atlantia's Fall Coronation of Cuan VIII and Signy II
October 4 at 5PM until October 6, at 5PM
Hosted by the Barony of Storvik
In the Fall of 1525, King Christoph and Queen Adelhait, traveling with their Royal Court in attendance, as well as Officers of State, Barons and Baronesses, artists, craftspeople, musicians, and a large army of nobles and Landsknecht mercenaries, stopped at a sleepy crossroads marked only by a small tavern and a few common houses. here their Majesties intended to rest for two nights before crossing the river; what happened next changed history...
The theme of the event is a temporary camp for the Crown and retinue at a sleepy border outpost of The Holy Roman Empire in 1525.
Unfortunately, early Saturday morning, the King is found in his lodging unresponsive and is pronounced dead by a Surgeon of local reputation (reputedly his prescription for everything is strong bier). The learned medical man is unable (or unwilling) to state a cause of death – except to say it was definitely regicide!
As the Nobles of the Court quietly speculate and cast
accusatory glances between them, brave Queen Adelhait tries to bear the burden
of the Crown alone and crushed by grief. Yet she soon realizes that suspicion
will touch even her beautiful and blameless person. So Her Majesty temporarily
transfers her powers to Prince Cuan and Princess Signy and charges them to
follow the facts and uncover the truth.
Every activity on the day will offer the opportunity to collect a clue as to the identity of the killer, the manner by which the deed was done, and where it was done. There is no minimum or maximum size for investigation teams, but independent detectives will not have time to participate in all activities. It is possible to solve the mystery without gathering all the clues, but the more clues one finds the better a team’s chances. Also, teams may be formed in advance or at the event.
