Sacred Stone Baronial Birthday and Investiture
September 22 (4 PM) - 24 (10), 2017
Barony of Sacred Stone
As seasons change, so must our fair barony. Please join us to celebrate our birthday, say good-bye to our beloved Marc and Alianor, and welcome our newest baronage!
Martial Activities: Armored fighters We’re not sure yet what scenario Master Achbar is cooking up for the armored combatants, but we can tell you that our own Baron Marc d’Aubny has crafted one of his gorgeous swords for just this occasion. Come and test your mettle on the field of combat, and you may well go home with this coveted prize!
Rapier fighters A full day designed to test your mettle is in store for you. A poker tournament is sure to whet your appetite, and a drunken sailor tournament is certain to make you think outside of the box. Melee activities will round out the day, if any combatants are left standing.
Youth fighters Bring your gear, you're going to need it! An off-hand tournament will challenge how well-rounded your skills are becoming. If that's not enough, you are to face the dreaded Hunger Games Challenge! Melee scenarios are also in store for our up and coming fighters.
Archery activities will be held throughout the day for our ranged weapons enthusiasts.
Arts & Sciences Activities: Artisans You are certainly not to be forgotten! Competitions and displays will be held throughout the day so that you may show your pride in our Barony to our incoming Baronage. A Baronial Pride competition leads off the festivities - bring your best use of green and white in any medium so that the populace may gaze upon your handiwork. A Novice Competition will also be held - whether you are new to competitions or new to a medium, those who have been crafting for a year or less are welcomed to display their new skills. Lord Ian, in his quest to educate on the history of leather work, is also issuing a challenge to artisans to bring their best reproduction leather goods (along with the documentation from the original source material) for all to see.
Bards Kick off the festivities by attending the Bardic Blow Out on Friday night. Through the day, the punniest of our gentles will be challenged by displaying their originality, abundance and pure stamina in what is sure to leave our sides splitting!
