Summer's End 2013, Shire of Krakenfjord Sept 13 - 15 2013
A hushed whisper creeps out upon the land. Steadily it grows till
it is heard as a roar, the roar of the Kraken.
Once again the Shire of Krakenfjord will be hosting their
Summer's End gathering in September.
To that end we send out this invite to one and all, come if you
dare and test yourself against Armoured warriors, draw your blades
and cross them with cunningly skilled Rapiers.
Quench your thirst for knowledge from the wise teachers that
will travel from afar.
Bring your words of wit and song for a bardic circle where many
shall enter but there can only be one survivor.
Come for fellowship, for challenge. for knowledge, for laughter
and fun. Come and be part of our best event yet.
As usual, merchants are most welcome to come and ply their
wares. There will be no extra merchant's fee, only the
regular gate fee will apply. If you are planning on attending
this event, please notify the Event Steward so space can be set
aside for you. We have decided to try something a little different
this year..On Saturday we will be opening up merchant's row to the
local public from 12:00 to 4:00pm with the hopes that this will
make it more worth while for merchants to attend.
