A preview of some of the fabulous things Planned for 12th Night
Friday Night Festivities
Friday Dancing and
Our dance master, Good Old Lord Petronius, has planned for those
weary travelers joining us Friday night to have, in his words,
“a sedate and elegant ball, with none of that flashy footwork
and flourishes so inconceivably loved by the youth.” The
great hall will be in process of being set up for the festivities
of the next day, and Petronius doesn’t want dancers getting
However, rumors from Adiantum have
started spreading. Certain… ladies… of An Tir have
declared that they know exactly what weary travelers are looking
for Friday evening… FUN! To that end they’ve conspired
against dear old Petronius, and have plans to send him to bed early
whether he wills it or no, as they intend to take over the ball!
Join the courtesans of An Tir for a lively evening of getting
underfoot. They welcome all − those brave enough to be seen
in the company of courtesans and those who would hide their
identity behind a mask.
Along with the dancing, our lovely
courtesans are hosting a couple of competitions during their ball;
one for the best Documentably Trashy Garb, and one designed to be a
social mixer during the dancing.
For the costuming contest, bring out
your best documentable courtesan (or less noble working profession)
clothing, and let our judges know about what folks in the
world’s oldest profession were wearing during your period.
Yes, documentation is required; it doesn’t need to be a
research paper, but consideration will be given to depth of
Anyone that wishes to participate in
the social competition will be given a dance card at the beginning
of the ball. Before each dance there will be a moment to write in
the name of your partner for that dance. Whoever has the largest
number of different partners during the evening will win!
Period Games: A
gaming area next to the A&S Hall, also in the Great Hall Friday
evening. Labyrinth: A 30’ candle-lit labyrinth to
walk overlooking the river on Friday and Saturday nights. Music & Drama: The bards of An Tir are
planning musical presentations, and the An Tir Players have
promised an entertainment. Portrait Painting: Adiantum’s Antonia
Crivelli paints portraits on the spot using period pigments. Bar Party: Saturday night, hosted by Baron Durin
Oldenmoor. Bring your room party here and turn up the volume while
the rest of the hotel sleeps peacefully.
Championship The tournament will start out with a round
robin of four pools. The top four fighters in each pool will seed
into a 16 person single elimination round, with each bout being
fought the best 2 out of 3 kills. The two finalist will face off
best 2 out of 3. All bouts will be fought with your best form, but
weapons are limited to a combined blade length of 65 inches. We
wish to encourage fighters to communicate with each other during
the fighting as well as making deaths clear to the spectators.
Double deaths will be refought.
The victor will be clothed in the
glory of their new station with the cloak of the Queen's Rapier
Champion and be tasked with representing the rapier community in
all things. As Queen's Rapier Champion you will have the privilege
and honor to attend to Her Majesty in Court.

Note that the above Weather and Map information is generated from the site address and can be easily confused. The weather will say if its for the branch or for the site. It will be for the site if the site can be found, but this again is not always the case, and if the site is some distance from the branch then the weather may be different.
