Clash with Bacchus...gods and mortals
September 23- 25, 2016
Barony of Black Diamond
Bacchus is known among men as the god of wine and revelry. Sheltered in the mountains of Black Diamond, we host Bacchus in all his glory as we revel in good wine, good company, and good competition on the field.
Martial Activities: A full day of both rapier and armored fighting that will test the mettle of our fighters. On the armored field, fighters will be challenged in a Tournament of Chivalry with unbelted fighters challenging Knights of the realm. On the rapier field, fighters will take part in a Tournament of Honor with fighters challenging Masters of Defense and White Scarves. Following the tournaments, melee activities will be developed based on ideas from the Warlord and MiC, performance in the tournaments, and numbers of participants.
Arts & Sciences Activities: There will be a judging of skill in the art brewing and/or the best use, or display of, drinking in other media. For the Youth A&S - best use of a bear and a fox in the same item. Documentation encouraged.
