Honey War

June 17, 2011 to June 19, 2011
Glymm Mere

Olympia, Tumwater & Lacey, WA

Autocrat: Alaina Blackthorn device6985OP


For those of you who were not in attendance during evening court at May Faire, there is news that some may find shocking and will, hopefully, rally many to the defense of Glymm Mere.

As you probably know, Johann and I stepped up as Baron and Baroness of Glymm Mere at May Faire. We inherited a healthy Barony and an amazing populace. We also feel that we were warmly welcomed by our neighboring cousins. Well….for the most part.

We received great words of wisdom and lovely gifts from the visiting Barons and Baronesses. The Barony of Blatha An Oir had other words for us, however. As we were being given gifts with one hand, we were being challenged by the other. There was an accusation of theft of honey! A challenge and an accusation within mere moments of our investiture!!

We, Baron Johann and Baroness Francisca would request a call to arms. It appears the wish for peace in our time is not to be. So, join with us and the Beevarian Company in defending our honor- and our honey.


So say we,

Baron Johann Matheusson and Baroness Francisca de Montoya

Volunteers - 2 points
This event couldn’t happen without all of our wonderful volunteers! For each half hour of volunteer work you do you will receive a coin. Drop it in the box of the barony you are supporting. The barony who has the most coins before court on Saturday evening will be awarded the war points!

Rapier - 8 points

#1:  Roving tourney - (possibly with sherrif's if enough people) Each fighter (does His Excellency have the coins he was talking about?) has 5 tokens, they challenge eachother for the tokens when they find eachother (if the sherrif catches them fighting then they lose 2 tokens if they run out they are out of the tourney), each fighter has to have a second (either one of the fighters or someone else who will act as their "marshal"), the winner will be the one with the most tokens at the end of two hours;  This will be best on saturday afternoon
#2: Raid the Sheep Melee Scenario- In this we will have volunteer "sheep" from the fighters; these persons will act as rebellious sheep from the other side; These sheep are trying to escape and be taken back by their "owners" and the raiding party is attempting to take them back to their "home base" to sell and make money; the buyer can "haggle" the price; this will be done in two rounds one for each side timed at 20 min; the winner is the team with the most coin at the end of their time 7
#3: Blood of Heroes Scenario
A&S - 2 points
Bring your entries with a 3x5 card for documentation to the A&S
pavilion by 1pm. War points will be awarded to the winning entry and
the most entries entered.

Brewing – 2 points
Contestants will be judged on:
Clarity, color and texture:  Does the brew look like it's supposed to look?
Taste:  Does the brew taste like it’s supposed to taste? 
Presentation:  Is the brew in a period looking container or an overly modern one?  If it’s in a modern container, document why you chose that container over a more period one.
Documentation:  At the very least, what is it, who made it and a simple list of ingredients (don’t give us the recipe!  That’s your secret).  Is the recipe period, how long did it take to make, anything interesting you learned, etc.
Please drop off your entries at the A&S pavilion!
