Hawkwood's Baronial Birthday: Tricksters, Tramps & Thieves
May 18- 20, 2018
Barony of Hawkwood
Every culture has its tricksters. This birthday we pay homage to those legends with a tricky assortment of games and challenges. We host a series of gambling games (cheating encouraged), a bardic competition of trickster stories, marshalled activities that encourage people to make (and occasionally break) alliances, and plenty of activities and mischief to continue long into the night.
