Caer Galen Toys for Tots Event, October 16 A.S. 52

Good King Lief attended the Toys for Tots event co-hosted by his baronies of Caer Galen and Caerthe. These generous baronies gathered almost 200 toys! There were a number of archers, four horses and their riders, three rapier fighters and no heavy weapons fighters (proving that Stag’s Emprise was successful in exhausting them).

With a fantastic soundtrack from the neighboring fiesta, His Majesty bestowed the following awards:
Lady Elizabeth Argentieri – Argent Hart
Baron Stephan Sorensen – Doe and Mountain

Then His Majesty allowed this humble herald a moment in court, wherein I asked him permission to retire early. I have arranged to go on pilgrimage to the gravesite of Queen Bertrada of Laon (known as Bertha Proudfoot) at the Basilique de Saint Denis, and I must leave before the winter storms make the crossing too dangerous. In his benevolence, His Majesty allowed me to turn in my tabard and baton. (I will still arrange heralds and reports until the end of Their Majesties’ reign). It has been my great honor to hold the position as Her Majesty’s Herald.

The Warlord of the Outlands Tournament at Stag’s Emprise, October 14 A.S. 52

The tournament was in the style of Sir Michael McBain’s Artus Cominus. There were eighteen fighters, thirteen rounds each with a different weapon style, single fight.

With mine own eyes I saw acts of chivalry. In one fight, one opponent had a dagger and the other had a great sword. The wielder of the great sword chose to only use one arm in order to make the fight a little more fair.

There were also amazing skills shown. We all watched as Lord Gere started to lose his balance and fall backward while retreating (the floor had gotten dusty and a little slippery), only to regain his feet and immediately strike out at his opponent, vanquishing him.

Lord Khal Gan was voted “best dressed” by some of the ladies of the gallery. His new Mongol kit is amazing.

At the end of the thirteen rounds, there were three warriors who each had eight wins. Sir Wilhelm Gelbart (known also as Galbrearth), Lord Gere Thorkelsson, and Lord Ronan f-Fiacal mac Conaill (who is also currently the Windhover Bard) all stood tall It was the King’s will that they fight round robin, best two-out-of-three with great axe.

Sir Galbrearth and Lord Gere fought. Sir Galbrearth won.
Sir Galbrearth and Lord Ronan fought. Lord Ronan won.
Lord Ronan and Lord Gere fought. Lord Gere won.

His Majesty, in consultation with Her Royal Highness, declared that the round should be fought again, round robin, best two of three.

Sir Galbrearth and Lord Gere fought. Sir Galbrearth won.
Sir Galbrearth and Lord Ronan fought. Lord Ronan won.
Lord Ronan and Lord Gere fought. Lord Gere won.

Our good King and wise Crown Princess then decided that a Meanest Mother (every one fights everyone all at once) was the best course. These stalwart fighters once again took the field. Sir Galbrearth was dispatched first, leaving Lord Gere and Lord Ronan standing. After a flurry of axe blows, Lord Ronan fell. Lord Gere was victorious!

In court, Master Bela Kierzon (the Kurgan) returned the Thunderhead to the King, saying he had long wanted to be the Warlord. By carrying this Axe he could honor the first Prince of the Outlands, who was his Master.  Master Bela was released as Warlord to much acclaim.

With pride and wonderment in his eyes, he knelt before the King in court to accept the Prince’s Axe, Thunderhead. His Majesty called for an oath from him. He swore to be a good Warlord, to try to be as inspiring as Sir Jaxx was when he held the Axe, and to wake everyone up at Estrella so the Outlands can be first to the battlefield.

Kingdom Court Report July 15th-16th ASLI (2017), Highlands Rapier Camp and War Collegium, Barony of Aarquelle

Herein lies the court report for Highlands Rapier Camp and War Collegium.

The radiance of the Saturday morning sunshine was a welcome sight, and all fears that a much anticipated event would be ruined by the weather evaporated with the morning dew and the last few puddles of mud.

His Majesty bid welcome to the populace and shared with them his eager enthusiasm for all the day had to bring. Some announcements were made about schedule additions and updates for the day, as well as about some classes to look forward to at Battlemoor, which will be held on the same site. Baron and Baroness Aarquelle begged leave of His Majesty to open court, wherein they created the premiers of several new orders. With that inspiring business complete the populace was sent forth to learn, have fun, and generally enjoy the beautiful day.

The day was filled with classes for all interests and the mood of the populace gathering for court was one of contentment and well earned exhaustion.

Court resumed with some announcements of other wonderful events to come. Baron and Baroness Aarquelle then once again requested to resume their court, and created premiers for several more of their new orders. The Autocrats of the event requested the ear of the populace to thank them for coming and His Majesty, as well as the assembled Barons and Baronesses took the occasion to thank the autocrats and their staff with gifts of largesse and praise. Aarquelle’s Baronial court was recessed, and Kingdom court resumed. At that moment His Majesty called forth Fiona of Aarquelle, and with great words of her good works He did award her arms. The Barony of Unser Hafen then begged a moment from His Majesty and opened their court in which announcements were made and awards given. Kingdom court resumed again. The Honorable Lady Zafirah and her Countess Magge were called before His Majesty to respectively release and accept the office of Kingdom Exchequer. Next, his Majesty requested the presence of Lord Ciarán Brocc, and after recognizing his steadfast service and contributions as a Herald, awarded him a Stag’s Heart. There were a few more announcements and then Mistress Elena was called forth to give account of the Captain of the Silver Tyne tourney, who was found to be Brenden. Finally, His Majesty demanded the presence of Lord Gaius Furious Marius, and after words of his constancy, excellence, and prowess, created him as a Thane of the Iron Hart. Court was recessed, and the populace was encouraged to enjoy the hot water, dancing, songs, stars, and all planned and unplanned activities for the evening.

A brief court was held Sunday morning to once again thank everyone for coming and advise about the activities of the day. Brenden, newest Captain of the Silver Tyne was awarded his Silver Tyne for his excellence on the field, and with it, his Award of Arms. Court was closed with a resounding cry of Outlands pride.

Words from our local Seneschals

                                                                                                            For the month of: June 2017

Aarquelle                                                                           Seneschal: Generica McKenna

Weekly, we have between 20 and 40 people at fighter practice; about 5-12 are armored, 3-6 are rapier and the rest are working on A&S, planning or just socializing. Count Robert’s monthly tournaments are part of the draw. Having a regular, nonthreatening, but still challenging goal seems to work. Our A&S nights are similar; a solid mix of projects, lessons, planning and socializing – drawing from and beyond Aarquelle. I believe actively encouraging this sort of diversity is helping us grow.

Upcoming events:

                  14-16 July ~ Highlands Rapier Camp and War Collegium (Buena Vista)

                  30 September ~ Aarquelle Defender

                  13 January 2018 ~ Viking Vinter Vonderlandt

 

al-Barran                                                                           Seneschal: Melodia Shaw

June is a quiet month for al-Barran. We have autocrats for Day of A&S (Lord Hardwin)and Toys 4 Tots (Lord Alexander) completing the year of events for the Barony. We are accepting bids and plans for Spring 2018 Crown Tournament. Planning is ongoing for Nock on Wood and Champions.

I am almost done with a revised event form and handbook for al-Barran, I am hoping this will help autocrats with their duties.

Upcoming events:

                  22 July ~ Nock on Wood

22-24 September ~ al-Barran Champions

16-17 December ~ al-Barran Midwinter and War Practice

10-11 March 2018 ~ Crown Tournament

 

Blackwater Keep                                                  Seneschal: Devon Nightshade

We continue to progress; we have monthly business meetings, twice monthly A&S meetings and weekly fighter practices. We are going to be participating in both the Roosevelt and Curry County Fairs, and doing a demo at the Peanut Valley Festival.

Our new Knight Marshal, Lord Corwin, is planning to build up the Shire loaner gear and continuing to offer instruction and help with armoring. We have three new people learning to fight.

Upcoming events:

                  21-22 October ~ Peanut Valley Festival DEMO

                 

Blaiddwyn                                                                        Seneschal: Gerlin von Tiesenhausen

Summer Hiatus

Upcoming events:

August ~ Fall Welcome Back demo

Bryngalou                                                                                          Seneschal: Kveldulfr Valbrandsson

We have had new interest in our Shire, and new people have been coming to fighter practice and participating in meetings. We had a Shire tournament with a great turnout and a local member is starting a garb making business. We had one new name and device submission.

We are working on plans for Battlemoor, and finding an open date and site for Mountain Pas.

Upcoming events:

                 

Caer Galen                                                                       Seneschal:

Citadel of the Southern Pass           Seneschal: Aoife Ruadh inghean Ragnaill

June was a very busy month for the Citadel as a whole, as preparations for the July fighting event (Hastilude) were heavily underway. Officer meetings are well attended and each of the major positions took responsibility for their corresponding areas in coordinating events at Hastilude. Fighter practices are well attended, and our Knight Marshal continues to focus on teaching newcomers the basics and skills related to long-term interest and growth in the martial aspect of the game. Archery remains incredibly well attended--- and the new Wednesday practice for Rapier is growing. Caelix Harmoniae continues to grow and expand the choral repertoire, to include instruments. One of our members has begun a scribal guild, headed by HL Edmund, and many members are enjoying learning illumination and the basics of calligraphy.

The Baron and Baroness continue to maintain a warm and open-door policy with all members. I believe the newcomers benefit from this approach and many are showing interest in becoming deputies or officers. Offices open for application include: Chronicler and Herald.

Upcoming events:

Herein lies the court report for Caer Galen Defender.

Saturday morning in the bright mountain morning, Their Royal Majesties saw fit to award THL Konrad von Alpirsbach with an Argent Hart for his various artistic endeavors. They also gave word-fame to Baroness Keridwen Andersdottir by making her a Companion of the Fallen Snow. Both lovely scrolls were made by THL Cecilia Caterina da Firenze.

After a monsoon deluge (causing much close-quarters merriment), afternoon court was had. The Windhover Bard, Lady Isabel la Biche d’Hiver was made a Companion of the Argent Hart (scroll by Lady Leticia Attewode). Lord Ketill Geirason (aka Kjeld) was given a Stag’s Heart for his service to Caer Galen and the Outlands (scroll by Mistress Katrin von Hohenzollern).

His Majesty declared that Letters of Intent for consideration for the upcoming Crown Tournament are due by 11:59pm on July 26th. Court was closed and a lovely evening of bardic and revelry commenced.

Faithfully recounted,
Matilda Seton
Blue Iris Herald
Herein lies the court report for Drystone/St. Martin’s Collegium.

Saturday morning was beautiful and peaceful in the mountains above Drygestan. Her Royal Majesty awarded Lady Michaela de Montgomery a Trefoil for her steadfast service to the Shire of Drygestan (scroll is a work in progress). She then allowed the Autocrat, THL Erchambaut and the Class Coordinator, Sir Rowland, some time to announce the days activities. Her Majesty then took a moment to tell us of her morning contemplation. As our Queen listened to the early morning birdsong and gazed upon the trees, she noticed the evidence left behind of those not of our ilk who had used these lands before, and it caused Her Majesty great sadness. She asked her people to make special effort to leave the site cleaner than we found it. I saw with mine own eyes Outlanders of all ages doing this thing the rest of the event.

Classes were held and much learning and sharing of knowledge and philosophy happened. Camaraderie and festivity happened in the afternoon, with a bardic then drumming and dancing.

The setting for Sunday morning’s court was as beautiful as Saturday’s. Mikhailo of al-Barran was made a Companion of the Golden Pheon to much acclaim (scroll by Lady Gianina), and Mistress Brigitta Olavsdotter of Kiel was made a Companion of the Stag and Chalice for her longstanding service to the Kingdom (scroll by Mistress Monika. The Shire of Drygestan presented Her Majesty with a goodly amount of cunningly wrought gifts to be used as largesse. THL Iohann made an announcement about the upcoming Stag’s Emprise event.

Please accept this humble herald’s apologies for waiting so long to send this missive. I shall endeavor to be more timely in the future.

Belatedly reported,
Matilda Seton
Blue Iris Herald
Herein please find the court report for Northern Realms War.


My boundless gratitude to Sir Felix Sniumi for heralding His Majesty’s court.

Jeri of Plattefordham received her Award of Arms.
Vingthor Ragnarson received his Award of Arms.

Both scrolls were by Don Michael M’Quilline.

By all accounts the event was delightful, fun and welcoming. Glory and joy was shared by all.

Aarquelle                                                                           Seneschal: Generica McKenna

We’re a BARONY now !!

The monthly tourneys are very well attended. This was a great idea, and it's doing a lot to help our fighters work as a unit, draw in visitors at the park and give people a reason to get excited once a month. We generally have 30+ people at fighter practices in the center of the barony.  We have members returning after a long absence and new members as well. There are newly authorized fighters.  We are working on ways of supporting the outer edges of the Barony, as well. We're working on ways to stream meetings and A&S.

al-Barran                                                                           Seneschal: Melodia Shaw

 May was a big month for al-Barran as it was Grand Outlandish time. The event went well with over 400 people in attendance. The site for Outlandish has had many upgrades this year including: permanent Showers, a bridge on the melee field, a hydration station, and many new gates to campsites. With the Barony's volunteers for labor and the donations of materials much has been accomplished.  I would like to congratulate Lady Beletumara and Sir Fierien on a great event!

We have decided to continue doing the al-Thing at the Boys and Girls club. We will also be having 2 mini events to help pay for the site, and to keep the costs down, we have agreed to do an hour class a month for the Club

Things are going well in the Shire.  We gathered this month for a potluck/meeting and discussed many exciting ideas for activities and general merry making.

Mayday went very well! We had a good turnout with friends from elsewhere and some new faces interested in learning more about us.  Mountain Pas is definitely coming again this year, though we have not nailed down a date yet.  We have begun looking at events for next year, as well. 

Upcoming events:

                   

Caer Galen                                                                       Seneschal: Keridwen Andersdottir

  Caer Galen is gearing up for a busy summer and fall season. 

This will be my final communique as Baronial Seneschal.  As I look over the past 2.5 years, I can see that while I made mistakes, I also learned from them, and fixed things where I could. I have *amazing* volunteers who helped me and supported me. The Barony did not explode into a huge dumpster fire, and for that, I feel somewhat responsible. I will be stepping down at Defender, and Rowenna will take up the burden. I am certain she will do an *amazing* job.  Thank you for believing in me.

Upcoming events:

                  7-9 July 2017 ~ Caer Galen Defender

                  28-30 July ~ Enduro

Citadel of the Southern Pass           Seneschal: Aoife Ruadh inghean Ragnaill

 May in the Citadel can be summed up with two words: Event Preparation. Team Citadel was very busy with activity and preparation for our Mayday event (May 14th) and Grand Outlandish. Additionally, the barony spent time catching up on the planning for our upcoming Hastilude event. Attendance at Mayday also allowed a chance to celebrate the mothers in the barony, as Her Excellency Elieth hosted a Mother’s Day Tea. Throughout the Mayday event, 45 barony members (including 13 children) made an appearance or spent the day celebrating.  Their Excellencies and other members of the populace did attend the neighboring Shire of Nahrun's Quarterly Persona Feast.

Citadel remains solid in consistent attendance and active engagement by current members. The A&S nights, including Clothiers Guild, are well-attended— under the guidance of Their Excellencies Tariq and Elieth and THL Edmund, plans were approached to begin a Scribal Guild. On the martial side, the Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday fighter practices are regularly attended and our fighters proved they are at the top of their game at the Grand Outlandish tournaments. The Brewers Guild is in the process of updating policies/charters to clarify some structural procedures and help the group grow. Unsurprisingly, the archery program is still boasting a rather large attendance, and the partnership with the City of El Paso Museum of Archeology is creating opportunities to meet many members of the public. We continue to get newcomers from this program and it will be up to the leaders of the various activities to maintain the interest of these contacts and help them translate to memberships and activity.

The Seneschal’s office is undertaking the creation of an event planning class, specifically geared to the distinctive flavor of activities of the El Paso area and participants (unique aspects and traditions of Citadel).

Upcoming events:

7-9 July ~ Hastilude

The shire folk continue to have many independent A&S projects in the works! Lady Muirenn ingen Ui Thaidc has boldly stepped up to the daunting post of Web Minister and through much hard work and study has been working on getting The Shire's web site up to date!  Discuss local A&S days to get new members up and running.

Fontaine dans Sable                                       Seneschal: Adriana Lopes de Rodas

 May was a quiet month for baronial activities. We started Gab n Garb back up on the 3rd Saturday, and it had a fair showing in May. Wednesday Medieval Muster has been consistently attended, though few heavy fighters have been attending. The A&S officer and the Largesse guild leader have had regular activities for the non-fighters.

Fontaine has 3 demos coming in the next 2 months. Our first demo will be at the Farmington Public Library on Thursday, June 15. The theme of the Library Teen Zone activity for the week is Medieval, so we were invited to demonstrate the fighting and arts and sciences aspects of the Middle Ages. We will demonstrate light and heavy fighting, as well as weaving and possibly illumination and calligraphy.


The next demo is our Medieval Faire and Demo in Aztec, NM on Saturday, June 17. This event serves as our Toy Box, so it is a charity drive for the local Food Pantry. The autocrat of the event is Wyolet Bertrem. It will include a Rapier Tournament, Heavy Tournament, and Archery Tournament the following day, along with demonstrations of various types of A&S and children's activities.



The last demo will be August 18 and 19 at the San Juan County Fair. We were invited to demo in the coliseum. We will be calling on Rio and al-Barran for additional fighters, drummers, dancers, and artisans to make this demo as large as possible.

White Stag Principal Herald
Herein please find the report of the Kingdom courts at the Condottieri event, hosted by the Barony of Caerthe May 26-29, 2017.

Saturday morning-

-Her Majesty exchanged fealty oaths with those peers and populace who wished to.
-THL Estefania de las Yegua and Lord Louchelan de Hay were inducted into the Queen’s Guard.
-His Excellency, Sir Alasdair MacDubhghaill the Scot was made a Venerable Guard.
-The Queen’s own daughter, Katherine le Fayre atte Watere was invested as Princess Royale.

Saturday evening –

-Various landed nobles were not present when Her Majesty’s court began. Please know that is not at all because they were negligent in their duties, but that there was a miscommunication about the processional. Once they arrived, they were welcomed by Her Majesty the Queen.
-Her Majesty noted that there were over 20 horses participating in the equestrian activities.
-Master Avram syn Osvetoslavl’ was released (with great thanks) as Kingdom Scribe, and THL Perryn Coelbrant was sworn in.
-Lady Illaria Joye was made a Companion of the Argent Hart.
-Sir Ronan Supelach was made a Defender of the White Scarf. (Trivia question – without looking it up, can you name the other knights that are also White Scarves?)
-I was about to close Her Majesty’s court, when she, struck with inspiration, demanded that her Champion, Lord Iohann der Fuchs, attend her. Queen Ansteys gave wordfame to Iohann’s actions at Her Favor tourney, where he asked that anyone entering the tourney should go through him first. She praised his character and virtue. While speaking, the Order of Chivalry quietly came forward to kneel behind Johann. Her Majesty the Queen then offered admittance to that august order to Lord Iohann. (Answer to be given at a later date.)

Sunday evening –

-Her Majesty the Queen deigned to give her poor herald a break and announced herself in the processional. She then received the Princess Royale and her Barons and Baronesses as they rode into court on horseback.
-The Barony of Caer Galen announced their new Equestrian Champion, a fellow named Malcolm who was attending his first event. I, myself, witnessed his fine horsemanship earlier in the event.
-The Baron and Baroness of Unser Hafen presented Her Majesty with beautifully illuminated scroll blanks.
-The Kingdom Chronicler, Lady Annika Hoglund, announced the winners of the Blackfox Awards. It is my hope she posts those names soon, as I did not transcribe them, although it seems that Dragonsspine is very lucky to have their award-winning Chronicler.
-An announcement was made about an upcoming Science Fair, organized by Mistress Arcadia and Don Robert. Further details are forthcoming.
-Lord Rino handed out medals to three Outlanders whose IKAC scores exceeded all others. THL Konrad, Lady Dairenn, and Lord Ubertino were those fine archers.
-Her Majesty, Queen Ansteys announced she had received word from Grand Outlandish Tournament that King Lief had offered admittance to the Order of Chivalry to Lord Alexander of Lancaster. The crowd cheered.

Respectfully submitted,

Herein lies a report of excitement at the Coronation Feast of King Lief III and Queen Ansteys –

During the first remove, Duke Bela, in his armor, entered the back of the hall. He said these words:

“I am Bela Kos of the Chippendales, knight of the society, Bone Duke of the Outlands and sworn Champion of King Lief the third.

If there be anyone, be they Jarl, Karl or Thrall,

who say that our Sovereign Lord, King Lief third by that name

is not the rightful King of the Outlands, I say that man lies like a false traitor

and I am ready to cross swords at any time to prove your treason.

Here is my gauntlet. Pick it up if you dare.”

Whereupon he threw down his gauntlet and gazed around the hall. Those feasting put down their knives. He nodded to his attendant, who picked up the gauntlet and gave it back to him. His Grace then moved to the middle of the hall and said this:

“If there be anyone, be they noble, freeman or slave,

Who denies that Lief Fairhair is not the undisputed King of the Outlands,

I call you villain and vermin, and I challenge you to a holmgang

Here is my gauntlet. Touch it and name your day of reckoning.”

Again the threw his gauntlet to the floor. Nobody moved. Again he nodded, again the attendant returned his gage. He moved to the front of the hall, standing before the head table, and said this:

“If there be any, of high degree or low,

Who rejects Lief Two-Swords as the True King of the Outlands,

I declare you to be a Nithing and challenge your existence in this hall.

Here is my gauntlet. Take it up, if you have any blood, and I will take it from you.”

His gauntlet was thrown a third time. No one dared breathe, for fear they might draw his gaze to themselves. After a pause, His Grace nodded, and was given his gauntlet. He then knelt before the King, pledging again his sword. His Majesty the King toasted Bela with a goblet shaped like a skull, and then gifted the goblet to His Grace. The hall resounded with cheers.

Also, as dessert was being served, Mistress Ursula Darcy and Earl Mika Longbow were called from the kitchen to the King’s table. The feast both pleased and thoroughly sated Their Majesties, and they proclaimed that Mistress Ursula will be their Royal Dapifer. There was much rejoicing.

Humbly reported,

Herein lies the report of Sunday’s court at the Coronation event of King Lief III and Queen Ansteys –

There were several small courts throughout the day, one before the tournaments began and one after each was done. Here is a list of the highlights of the business conducted.

-Lord Nazir was inducted into the King’s Guard.
-Don Aegeon the Actor won the right to be Protector of the Queen’s Heart.
-Jarl Freana Geardson was made the Rapier of Chivalry.
-Count Robert Magnus won the Queen’s Favor. He now bears one of Her Majesty’s sleeves, which were beautifully embroidered by Baroness Morgan Cheyney.
-Lord Gilbert le Verrat was made the Flower of Chivalry.
-Don Robert Hunteman won the honor to be the Queen’s Defender.
-Special notice was taken by Her Majesty that Lord Cormac O Duinn worked hard to be authorized to fight in all three tournaments. The Queen called him Iron Man.

The fighting throughout the day was honorable and chivalrous. There were pick-up fights and music and singing and joyful conversation. Many hands helped to take down and pack away things as the rain began in earnest.

Delightedly recalled,

Words from our local Seneschals

                                                                                                            For the month of: April 2017

Aarquelle                                                                           Seneschal: Generica McKenna

We pulled off Kingdom A&S. We made it through fire and ice to make Newcomers happen. We completed the investiture ceremony. Aarquelle is now a Barony.

Kingdom A&S was more successful than we ever imagined with more than 200 in attendance. The event was donation only with the proceeds to be split between a donation to the Boys and Girls club who let us have the site, the kingdom and our group. Newcomers was slated to be held in Beulah but the weather forecast was foul and we changed to Pueblo at the last minute, with about 150 in attendance. Aarquelle was invested as a Barony during morning court with Tiegr and Audrey as the first baron and baroness.

In 7 years, we moved from near dissolution to barony. We've gone from maybe 10 active members to more than 60. We have a vibrant A&S community, a solid mix of older and new fighters, our offices filled and people begging to become deputies. Our people are stepping up to work on a kingdom level, hosting events, staffing Battlemoor and considering offices. We are the heart of the stag.

Sir Needham is working with the heavy fighters to field an Aarquelle melee squad. Fighter practice has expanded to twice a week. Rapier is about to add a third practice as well. Villaleon has asked to join the Barony, dissolving their Shire. Our next challenge is to join forces and become one group covering SE Colorado. We're going to need to actively explore how to use social media, carpooling, innovative meeting schedules and a host of ideas to make sure every person in our group feels welcome, informed, valuable and wanted no matter where in the Barony they reside. It's a welcome challenge. We love these people; it's going to take thought and work to make it happen.

Upcoming events:

                  14-16 July ~ Highlands Rapier Camp and War Collegium (Buena Vista)

During the month of April Samilya taught a class on SCA scrolls and Dagrun (Katrina Priestley) taught a class on viking wire jewelry.

Lots of folks worked hard to make our event a success:
Lyra (Nannette Arden) made cloth buttons, Hudd de Peth (Thomas Hudspeth) made four scrolls based on the Codex Manesse, Thyri (Kara Richey) made the cord for the prize, Curran (Mike Hernadez) made the site tokens (small swords and boffer swords on lanyards), Hrothgar (Wayne Painter) feast, Dagrun (Katrina Priestley) feast, (Emily, Conrad, and Carl) feast helpers, (Conrad Laun) chain mail napkin holders.  Several of our members received awards from the Crown at our event.

Citadel of the Southern Pass           Seneschal: Aoife Ruadh inghean Ragnaill

 April saw the transition within the Seneschal’s office, a review of current status and projects, and subsequent changes in format and purpose of officer meetings.  IT is my intent to bring an integrated and interactive approach to broadcasting results or meetings, be a cheerleader for various guilds and activities, engage the current officer corps, recruit new officers and deputies as Barony participants show interest.

The Citadel remains consistent in attendance and active engagement by current members.  I see strong indications of excitement, cohesiveness, and expansion into larger projects.  The March / April demo schedule was packed, but we are seeing newcomer involvement increase as well.  The Citadel is blessed with an actively engaged and effective Baron and Baroness, a strong Knight Marshal and Rapier Marshal and Archery Captain. 

The Barony now has a Clothier’s Guild, to help both newcomers and veteran players perfect and explore persona enhancements with sewing machines, patterns, ideas and discussion.

Carnival of Venice was successful. A day of games, dancing, bardic, and wonderful food!  We had one demo. Everyone enjoyed it.

We welcome our new Chronicler, Don Antoine de Vallier.  We are in need of an A&S Officer.

Crown Tournament was a rousing success.  The baronial polling had representation from over half of baronial members. The next Coronet will be THL Anna Katherine and Lord Lingormr.
The 5th Wednesday potluck was also well attended with the return of several old members as well as the most recent.


We have had several officers reporting that email has been an issue. Not the baronial ones, but their personal ones, seem to not be sending with success. We have started using the FB Fontaine Officers' Page as a backup, so, if emails do not go through, I still receive the reports. However, this is not helping with Kingdom uplinks receiving reports in a timely manner.

The group as a whole is doing well. We are preparing for our upcoming events of NRW and Dragons, as well as starting up the monthly tournaments, which was received very well.

Looking into holding a "Day in Medieval life" for a local library, with artisans and interactive events for patrons.  Season of Tournaments - was very well received and we are planning to how these on the first weekend of each month, with the exception of this month

Looking into making some sort of "New Comer Token", the idea of a pin with the shires symbol was brought up. Further discussion of this was tabled until next month giving time for people to come up with some ideas.  April- Baroness Keridwen will be up on the 29th and 30th of April to teach a Silk Banner Painting class.

Be it known far and wide that the BoD has approved Aarquelle's petition to become a barony.  HAPPY NEWS!

From the Desk of Lord Bernardo dei Medici, Webminister of Citadel of the Southern Pass:

Not so long ago there was a thread about the topic of doing a better job as a Kingdom and a group about information sharing. I have a short, 10-question survey for interested folks to participate in to help us as an organization better understand the ways our members utilize our websites and social media presence.

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CST6TYK

Please fill it out and provide feedback to the Kingdom's leadership team so we can keep pushing in a positive direction to better serve you.

The St Martins Collegium will be held in conjunction with the Drystone III event, June 23rd to June 25th 2017.  The site in on Santa Fe National Forest land in a cool Ponderosa Pine forest.

St. Martin’s Collegium will have classes for many heavy weapons styles, fencing styles, games and arts and sciences.  From Basic Sword and Shield by Sir Roland, Italian Long Sword by MOD Siegfried, How to beat a lefty by Sir AElric, Thinking in Fighting by Duke Artan.  There will be non-fighting classes also, Court Speaking by Duke Walric, Viking Hack Silver by Sir Elric. 

This event is based on the event “Grace and Valor” which is held every other year in the northern part of the Kingdom of the Outlands.  We strive for this to be a similar event on the open years in the southern part of the Kingdom of the Outlands.

We had a beautiful sunny day with mild winds at the Museum except for one "dust devil" that came through the middle of the range upsetting targets, bow stands, etc. We had a very active crowd of about 35 keeping us busy.

Aarquelle                                                                           Seneschal: Syr Gerwyn y Teigr

It has been a great month for Aarquelle; it has been announced that Their Royal Majesties are supporting the advancement to Barony from Shire.  We are now working feverishly on all that entails.  Our officers are determining any new requirements for their offices as we transition.

We held out annual Viking Vntr Vunderlandt event, and had over 100 in attendance.  Her Royal Majesty came and received our petition for advancement at that event. 

Upcoming events:

                  18 February ~ As You Like It (Salida)

8 April ~ Kingdom Arts & Sciences Collegium (Salida)
29 April ~ Aarquelle Newcomers & Investiture (Pueblo)

Al’Barran                                                                           Seneschal: Ymanya Murray

Al-Barran is well into preparations for war.  The January populace meeting was well attended, and the February populace meeting will be held earlier in the month than usual, to allow for final planning before folks leave for war.  At this meeting, Mistress Melodia will take the office of Seneschal. 

Upcoming events:

                  29 April ~ Albuquerque Renaissance Faire (demo)

Blackwater Keep                                                  Seneschal: Devon Nightshade

Blackwater keep continues to hold monthly general meetings, along with twice monthly A&S and fighter practices; however, the weather has prevented archery practice. 

We will be holding an event on 15 April, where we plan to have classes on various topics, and do some fighting.  We intend to support the ENMU production of “Pirates of Pinzance,” by purchasing advertising.

Upcoming events:

                  15 April ~ Blackwater Keep Collegium and Defender

Blaiddwyn                                                                        Seneschal:

Blaiddwyn is on winter hiatus


Bryngalou                                                                                          Seneschal: Kveldulfr Valbrandsson

The group is working well, and are happy.  Our St. Brigid Day event went well, the Queen gracing us.  Several pieces of Shire garb were needed and several awards given out to Shire members by Her Majesty.  Best of all, a profit was made!

We have a consistent average number of fighters at practice, with no injuries!  We have bi-weekly A&S classes, starting in February, with specific topics and open sewing nights.  We are now looking ahead to WAR, and our May Day event, planned for the second weekend in May.

SPOTLIGHT:  Thanks to Terri, for bringing snacks to the last meeting!

Upcoming events:

                  May ~ May Day

The shire continues to plan for events later in the year, securing a site for Summer Tournament and Games (STAG) event.  The Mor You Know has been shifted back to the fall of 2017, with a tentative site arranged. 

The Fabulous Fiber Babes will be participating in the Sneffels Fiber Fair in September, teaching various fiber arts, and Egil Thorsen will be participating in the Viking Exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science.

Shire Gatherings (practice and A&S) will begin again in March, when the weather is more cooperative.  Our Thrown Weapons Marshal, Baroness Annis, is researching the equipment needed to begin thrown weapons practice once the weather stabilizes.

                  Fall 2017 ~ The Mor You Know

Dragonsspine                                                            Seneschal: Mary of Lyonshall

  Dragonsspine is doing well – despite the plague of illness and surgeries beset upon our great populace.  Despite it all, fighter practice is well attended, and there is a feeling of camaraderie among the Barony, as we move ahead with new events… and WAR! 

I am pleased with the success of the events to date.  Candlemas was a great success, with 171 people attending; everything went seamlessly.  WE did one demo, and were well received.   We have open bids for Champions, expected to be in June. 

Upcoming events:

                  1 April ~ Carnival of Venice
                  6 May 2017 ~ Coronation
                  4 November ~ Holiday Bazaar

Drygestan                                                                                           Seneschal: Christine Woyade

Drygestan is moving forward to put on several events, including Drystone III and St. Martin's Collegium. We will have a financial committee meeting the second Wednesday in February during our A&S meeting, where we will approve budgets for these events and Ren Faire. We hope to have a new Knight Marshall this month; we have 2 good candidates to choose from, so that we can continue to have regular A&S and Fighter Practice. We look forward to Estrella War, where we will be camping as a Shire.

Upcoming events:

                  15-18 September ~ Santa Fe Renaissance Faire (demo)

Fontaine dans Sable                                       Seneschal: Adriana Lopes de Rodas

January was a typically busy month, with weekly meetings at our Medieval Muster; including fighter practice, A&S, bardic children’s activities and/or chatelaine projects.  The Barony is creating a new list field, using pennants painted with the personal, household and Baronial devices and badges.  Weather, both low temperatures and muddy fields and roads have hampered archery practice.

Fontaine’s 12th Night was held, with court dancing a silent auction, children’s scavenger hunt, a wonderful Court and an amazing feast.  Many members of the barony, and Shire-folk in Rio, received Baronial awards, and were recognized by His Majesty with Kingdom awards.

Two letters were accepted by The Crown, and the Barony will be moving forward with Polling and Investiture in the coming months.  A Town Hall meeting with Q&A is scheduled for 17 February, which will be recorded and available to watch online.  Polling will occur Sunday of Crown Tournament, during the Princess Protector Tournament.



Upcoming events:

11 March 2017 ~ Crown Tournament & Baronial Polling
22 April 2017 ~ Sworded Affaire & Baronial Investiture

Gleann Medonach                                              Seneschal: Michaela Kunrat

The group has been quiet, nothing to report.


Hawk’s Hollow                                                         Seneschal: Grellan O'Conchobhair

We have been active in several areas.  Lord Marcus hosted a largesse / leatherworking workshop to generate simple pouches.  Future largesse workshops were discussed to continue to “feed the need” for A&S and largesse.  Everyone was looking forward to Tri-Baronial A&S competition.  Archery is still going strong.  We are looking forward to Estrella.

Upcoming events:

                  6 August ~ St Sebastian’s Archery Tournament

Hinterland                                                                       Seneschal: Rowan

The group has been quiet, nothing to report.


Nahrun Kabirun                                                    Seneschal: Heinric Von Drachenburg

 We are all busily preparing for Estrella, ready to show up in force.  Fighter practices continue twice per week, are heavily attended, as are weekly A&S meetings and Friday armor workshops.

We are in full preparation mode for Siege of the City, and held a fighter practice on the site last month, that was a blast.  Coronation planning is also well underway, and we are beginning to plan for Clan Wars again in Ruidoso, NM.

My replacement has been selected, and approved.  The goal is for him to take the office on 1 March, and I will continue in an advisory role as long as I am able. 

Upcoming events:

31 March2017 ~ Siege of the City (City of Rocks state park)
20 May ~ Masked Ball
11-12 November 2017 ~ Coronation

Plattefordham                                                           Seneschal: Zvir L’vov syn Gorin

The last month, we celebrated our Candlemas event with the King.  Our members received numerous awards from His Majesty during His visit.  The event went very well, and thanks to all who participated in the A&S auction, we were able to raise $714.0 to the travel fund.  We were also able to gain two new members due to the event. We are continuing our plans for Norther Realms War and Dragons.  We are looking into getting a fighter practice in Glenrock once per month, to facilitate more involvement from the members that we have in Douglas.  We are putting up fliers at the local college, and possibly putting together a demo. 

We will be having a cheese making class in February, and future classes of lampworking (making glass beads) silk banner painting and sourdough bread from a 150 year old starter.  Fighter practices are going well, gaining heavy and light fighters.  We are tentatively planning a 3 kingdom joint fighter practice with Northshield and Artemisia in April or May. 

Upcoming events:

                  June 2017 ~ Northern Realms War
                  21-23 July 2017 ~ Here There be Dragons

Ram’s Keep                                                                    Seneschal:

The group is dormant


Ravenhyrst                                                                     Seneschal: Anrique de Braga

Our group continues to support the Barony of Caerthe, as best we are able.


Rio de las Animas                                               Seneschal: Geua filia Guy

January saw no action in Rio because of weather.  Road and parking conditions prevented us from meeting nor were we able to conduct business or play. Roads had cleared enough for 6 members were able to attend Fontaine's 12th night.  I appreciate the crown for the generous awards that were given to our members that night.

A new website with current information about the shire was launched, and is now connected to the Kingdom pages and the webmaster's office.  A new email list was established for mass communication as well since Yahoo groups has been difficult. 

February 5 was Rio's first 2017 meeting; we tried a new format.  Everyone brought their own lunch; we had short reports; everyone worked on a project; heraldry consults were held all while we watched the indoor fighter practice.  The American Legion hall was very welcoming. Weather prevents outdoors fighter practice and archery.  



Upcoming events:

                  28-30 July ~ Defender of the Silver Pass

Scola Metallorum                                                Seneschal: Istvan

Returning from winter hiatus

Words from our local Seneschals

                                                                                                            For the month of: December 2016

Aarquelle                                                                           Seneschal: Syr eErwyn y Teigr

December was a quiet month for Aarquelle.  Weather and holidays limited our practices, and in some cases our travels.  We held out annual holiday party, with over 50 people attending.  We are now gearing up for Viking Vinter Vunderlandt

Upcoming events:

                  14 January 2017 ~ Viking Vintr Vunderlandt

                  February ~ As You Like It

8 April 2017 ~ Kingdom Arts & Sciences Collegium

14-16 July 2017 ~ Highlands Rapier Camp and War Collegium

Al’Barran                                                                           Seneschal: Ymanya Murray

The December Populace meeting was cancelled, in favor of the al-Thing coinciding with Midwinter War Practice.  Midwinter went well, Shyla and her team put together a smooth and enjoyable event.  Many people pitched in to make the event successful, from planning, onsite and the amazing feast crew.

Mistress Melodia has been selected as the next Seneschal of al-Barrran.  I could not be more thrilled, both to work with her over the transition and to leave the office in her hands.  I could not have a better successor.  She is already working with the city, planning Ren Fair in earnest.

The financial committee has approved extending the al-Things, to see if they are supportable long term.

SPOTLIGHT:  I cannot thank Elisee enough for jumping in and taking over Midwinter feast, when the original feast coordinator could no longer do it.  It was especially awesome given that we didn’t have the kitchen.  Her whole crew was incredible.

Upcoming events:

                 

Blackwater Keep                                                  Seneschal: Devon

Not much has occurred during the holiday season.  We have continued to have monthly group meetings, A&S meetings and fighter practices.  We are planning on having a full day get-together, in late February or early March, to do some workshops and have fun.

Upcoming events:



Blaiddwyn                                                                        Seneschal: Mordygan MacGregor

Blaiddwyn is on winter hiatus.

Upcoming events:



Bryngalou                                                                                          Seneschal: Einarr Skallagrimmsson

Everything is positive!  We have motivated and involved member; good participation and input!

We had a relatively quiet month, with the holidays, but did find tme to get together to paint Shire banners.  Thank you to all who dedicated their time on the project.  We are looking at a way to hold more A&S classes, such as on a weekly or biweekly basis.  Shire members have volunteered already to teach several classes and set up sewing times to teach garb making.

St. Brigid’s Day feast is upcoming, and the whole Shire has dedicated much of their time and effort to get this event ready.

Upcoming events:

                  21 January 2017 ~ St. Brigid’s Day Celebration

Caer Galen                                                                       Seneschal: Keridwen Andersdottir

Midwinter 2016 was fantastic!

A 2017 planning session, and monthly meeting was held at Dwen’s house (complete with tacos and margaritas!) Keridwen will be running Caer Galen Defender, and Enduro will be run by Rowenna and Nico.  A Battlemoor land coorindator volunteered, Lady, Annabel, as well as acting as intermediary between the Battlemoor autocrat team and Caer Galen.  THL Shoshanna will be autocrat for Toys for Tots, in the fall.  We did some brainstorming on Midwinter 2017, considering a Mongolian theme.

Upcoming events:

                  7-9 July 2017 ~ Caer Galen Defender

                  28-30 July ~ Enduro

Caerthe                                                                                 Seneschal:



Upcoming events:

                  7 January 2017 ~ Twelfth Night

Citadel of the Southern Pass           Seneschal: Marco D’Este

The group is in a really healthy spot and continues to grow in overall attendance.  Our local brewery group continues to experiment with different types of drinks, we held an impressive candle making class that went very well and our Calyx Harmoniae impresses every time the Barony gets to hear their amazing voices.  We have openings for the officer positions of Rook Herald and Chronicler, the A&S officer change-over went really well.

The Citadel has been working hard to prepare for 12th Night; everything should be in order and ready to go.  Feast, Court and War Practice are well planned and good to go. 

SPOTLIGHT: Brandon Sivret has been working for over four months on arming the local populace with gear for Estrella War.  Out of his own kindness, he has helped to produce three full kits and continues to produce even more.  He has also produced several crossbows, so we should see more bolts in the air this year.  He has been taking time out of his life to teach people that it is not impossible to get out on the field. 

Upcoming events:

                  21-22 January 2017 ~ Twelfth Night and War Practice

Draca Mor                                                                                 Seneschal: Saeunn

Our Yule Celebration was held in December.  A site has been found for The Mor You Know, and A&S event, tentatively planned for 22-23 April.  Plans are being made for a demonstration at a local Renaissance Faire in May.  A site for STAG is being investigated, and is planned to occur in late summer.  We are continuing to plan for two Kingdom level events, to occur in 2017.  Local A&S classes are being scheduled for the new year.

Upcoming events:

                  22-23 April ~ The Mor You Know

Dragonsspine                                                            Seneschal: Mary of Lyonshall

The Barony is doing well.  We are looking forward to the upcoming events (Candlemas, Carnival and Coronation) and a good 2017.  We have selected an autocrat team for Carnival of Venice and the event is moving forward. 

Fighter practice is well attended, with a few new fighters.  Mistress Lydia is working on new classes and projects for A&S.  Letters are being accepted for the Chronicler office. 

Upcoming events:

                  28 January 2017 ~ Candlemas

                  1 April ~ Carnival of Venice

                  6 May 2017 ~ Coronation

Drygestan                                                                                           Seneschal: Christine Woyade

It has been a quiet holiday season, kicked off by a very productive populace meeting.  We decided on 2017 events, and solicited bids.  We plan to support Bryngolau’s St. Brigid’s Day Feast, instead of hosting a separate Yule.  We are planning to host several events this year, including Ren Faire, ComiCon and Drystone with the Company of St Martin.

Upcoming events:



Fontaine dans Sable                                       Seneschal: Adriana Lopes de Rodas

December was an uneventful month for Fontaine, after a successful demo at the Farmington Public Library on 5 December.  Wednesday Medieval Muster continues to be well attended with Rapier and A&S participants.  We hope to see more heavy fighters in the upcoming weeks, before War.

The barony has a new Baronial Scribe, THL Anna Katherine and Mistress Elizabeth has agreed to become Deputy Seneschal.  Letters of intent to poll as the next Coronet of Fontaine are being accepted until 31 January.

Upcoming events:

14 January 2017 ~ Twelfth Night and War practice

11 March 2017 ~ Crown Tournament

22 April 2017 ~ Sworded Affaire

We have slowed during these winter months, with archery ongoing, and preparations for Caerthan 12th Night.  The new A&S officer is leading brainstorming discussions on an “A&S sweatshop” to create largesse for the Crown.  We are also looking at running an event, other than St. Sebastian’s, and have begun idea formation.

The Shire is in a great place right now, with the addition of 7 new people in December.  Students will be back from winter break in about two weeks.  We are holding regular, weekly, events attended by 35-40 people.  Fighter practice alone included visitors from other groups, and several first time fighters.  The weekly armor workshop night is still going strong; despite the cooling of the weather (I bet you CO people think that is funny!)

We have revived the City of Rocks event and planning is currently underway.  We have also selected a date for the masked ball, tentatively 20 May. 

The office of Seneschal is open to letters of intent, as I step down.  I am very confident in the officers, and my deputy, that the Shire is well suited to the transition.

SPOTLIGHT:  Big round of huzzahs to my deputy Seneschal Seamus, who gives sage advice and listens well, when people wish to scream.

31 March 2017 ~ Siege of the City (City of Rocks state park)

20 May ~ Masked Ball

Good Peers of the Outlands heed the words of your King and Queen!

After much consideration, We have decided that We will not be holding peerage circles at Battlemoor as We will be holding them 10 days prior at Crown Tournament. We look forward to your counsel at the other scheduled circles throughout the summer. 

In service to the Dream,
King Kolgrimr and Queen Danielle

Hail to land where dragons dwell! Good tidings from King Kolgrimr and Queen Danielle.

This weekend past We had the pleasure of visiting the beautiful barony of Dragonsspine. We enjoyed Ourselves very much and would like to thank Our populace for their joviality and kindness. We would also like to thank Baroness Mary for the use of her incredible land. The site was far more than beautiful and it certainly made this already incredible event much more so. 

His Majesty enjoyed Himself greatly in the heavy tournament held on Saturday morning. The fighting was chivalrous and most entertaining for all who participated and watched. The rapier tournament was held afterwards and Her Majesty felt great joy at the acts of chivalry and prowess that She did see upon the field. After that, an archery tournament commenced and there was much skill to be beheld upon the range. Congratulations to all the new champions of Dragonsspine!

We also held baronial polling to determine the next Baron and Baroness of the barony. We thank all of the good gentles who did come and speak their words of counsel to Us on this matter. We determined that Don Gianni Sangermano and The Honorable Lady Jeanette deVallier will ascend to this honored position. Congratulations are due to them both!

We made such wonderful memories this weekend past and We very much look forward to seeing all the good gentles in this wonderful barony again!

In service to the Dream,
King Kolgrimr and Queen Danielle

Greetings unto the most kind and generous populace of the Outlands,

It is with a heavy heart that We received words of tragedy that befell a young member of An Tir. Her name is Naomi of Wealdsmere and she is 9 years of age.  At a recent event, this young lady became injured when her dress caught on fire and she is currently being treated at the Shriners Children's Hospital in Sacramento.

Her Majesty and I were approached by a good gentle of An Tir and were asked to send her a letter to keep her in good spirits. Knowing the astounding generosity of the Mighty Outlands, We believe that We can do much better than one letter. We would ask all who are able, to please write some kind words to this young lady so that we may lift her spirits during this time. Please send your letters to Our Disaster Relief Coordinator, Baroness Isabel Benet, so that she may collect them and we can send a care package to this young lady. Baroness Isabel’s address is 14704 E 26th Way. Aurora CO 80011.

Thank you all for your generosity.
King Kolgrimr and Queen Danielle

Greetings to the land of the scorpion from King Kolgrimr and Queen Danielle!

We thank you for your gracious hospitality at this past Grand Outlandish. It had been many years since His Majesty had attended this magnificent event and He greatly enjoyed his return. Her Majesty had never before had the pleasure of attending and was impressed by the hospitality of the people of al-Barran.  

 The tournaments that were held were a fearsome display of prowess and honor, both upon the heavy field and also the rapier field. The Knight’s Bannerette Tournament was thrilling and We will always remember the gentle who took the field and sang beautifully for all to hear. The Templar Twilight Tournament was most entertaining and Her Majesty was struck by the kindness and chivalry of the warriors who took the field. We also very much enjoyed the spectacular Hafla that night. The dancing was mesmerizing and the drumming was inspiring. 

 We wish to thank Jarl Gunwaldt and all those who assisted with the Baronial Polling. We also wish to thank all of the gentles of al-Barran who took the time to speak with Us about the future of the Barony. We announced at Grand Outlandish that the next Baron and Baroness of al-Barran will be The Honorable Lord Marc Antoine de la Rue and Baroness Bianca de Vittoria. Congratulations are due to them both. 

 We also wish to thank Their Excellencies of al-Barran for their incredible generosity and hospitality. They attended to Our every need and were amazing hosts. Her Majesty particularly enjoyed herself at the Baroness’s Tea that Her Excellency hosted. 

 We will cherish the memories that were made at Grand Outlandish and We greatly look forward to our next visit to al-Barran. 

In service to the Dream, 
King Kolgrimr and Queen Danielle

A cool mist rises from the ground in the pre-dawn hours. As the eastern sky begins to lighten in the promise of a coming sun, the silhouette of the castle brightens. Today, the siege begins. The commander of the attacking forces surveys the surrounding lands; assesses the strengths of the allied forces to either flank. Their banners hanging motionless in the solemn stillness that is dawn; a tranquility soon to be shattered by the terrible sounds of destruction and death. He turns and watches as his trebuchet crews complete their inspections of his giant war machines. In the near distance, the cavalry and archers begin to form. Pausing only long enough to greet the rising sun, he turns on his heel to issue his orders. Today, glory will be had; history will be made …
And so begins THE SIEGE AT INLANDISH. The four northern baronies are gathering in the field of war for this four-day event to be held over the Memorial Day weekend. They have brought their allies; shires and mercenary companies throughout the Kingdom have joined sides to prove their dominance. The prize is the castle; the reward is the legacy of the tale.


But there is so much more to conducting war than what happens on the battlefield.
At The Siege at Inlandish; the support around the soldiers is what will win the day! Come not only to support your troops, but also to support your artisans. There will be A&S competitions and contests of heraldry, cooking, bardic, horsemanship, archery, period display, thrown weapons, children’s activities and even dancing, gaming, and reveling throughout the long weekend. Be a part of the Combat Siege Cooking Contest; or for the youth (and adults) test your prowess and skills in the Survive the Siege contest!


There will be more than you can do in four days. And everything … contributes to the ultimate victory of the siege.
The pre-dawn light of the sun slices the Eastern horizon with its garish sanguine color. Acknowledging the symbolism of the bloody sunrise to come, the commander of the castle garrison stands silently, watching from the high wall of the castle at the gathering forces below. Grimly, he knows that the attackers have numbers on their side, but he also knows the strength of his castle’s walls. These are walls that have stood for many years, against many a would be conqueror. He knows that today will be no different. As the sky continues to lighten, he runs through his order of command one more time; assessing his every defense available. Pausing to watch as the sun breaks the horizon in glorious light, he understands that the order of the day is a simple one … hold the castle!
This is one siege that you do not want to miss!


Directions:
Take your best route through Denver to I-70 EB towards Limon. Take Exit 316 at Byers. Take a left at the stop sign at the bottom of the exit ramp, and go about 1/2-mile North on Hwy 36. Turn left at Quint Valley Fairgrounds, and follow the signs into the site.

The SCA, Kingdom of the Outlands recognizes that there are conditions that require the management of excessive noise/sound levels at events. Carbide noisemakers, which are made to resemble period black powder cannons, are a common source of noise at events. Although the use of these devices have no apparent or immediate impact on the health and well-being of the general populace, it has been deemed necessary to enact procedures and guidelines for the use of these devices in order to provide comfort and peace of mind for those attending SCA events.. These procedures are to include setting established times the devices may be used, advanced notification of their use, and any other specific procedures deemed necessary by the autocrat or local group hosting the SCA event.

Minimum rules on carbide noisemaker use at all official SCA events in the Outlands are as follows:

❖ Operation of devices may only occur between 10:00 am and 10:00 pm.

❖ Carbide noisemakers may not be used during court except with specific dispensations from the Crown or Baronial Coronet hosting the Court.

❖ Only one device may be fired at a time, with at least 1 minute between each concurrent device being fired.

❖ No more than 4 total activations in any hour per camp.

❖ Carbide noisemakers may not be fired closer than 50 feet from any other adjacent camp without express permission from the owners of that camp.

❖ Whenever possible, point carbide noisemakers away from other camp areas, toward the outskirts of the site.

❖ Carbide noisemakers may not be fired next to a road or path that is used.

❖ Verbal warning must be issued before carbide noisemakers are fired, e.g., “fire in the hole”

These rules are meant as a minimum set of standards. Stricter rules, up to and including a total restriction of the use of carbide noisemakers, may be set and enforced based on specific site needs or the preferences of event staff. Any person or camp who refuses to comply with policies may be asked to leave at event staff’s request. These rules apply only to carbide noisemakers; black powder cannons are strictly forbidden at any event.

The Outlands has a new
Crown Prince & Crown Princess!
