Under the Grenewode
August 25, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - August 27, 2017 @ 11:00 am
Hosted By: Barony of Blackstone Mountain and the Shire of Port Oasis
The rustic folk from the southern wilderness invite all to join them in a festival of peasant delights. The nobles are long in returning from the Great Pennsic War, and whilst they are away the peasants will play! Without the nobles to keep them in check, the villagers have escaped the summer heat under the leaves of the Grenewode. D’off your titles, circlets, belts, and finery, all the better to join in our peasant revels. For them what like to bash the others there is a fine bear-baiting for heavy fighters. News of foxes stealing the hens means a merry chase across the meadow; and a contest to tell the Tallest Tale will happen ‘round the fire circle. Games of skill and hazard for all. The Fae Folk may misdirect you on the way to your destination, and the stream will cool your weary feet. Tokens will be earned for participation; and the one with the most points will “crowned” Peasant King/Queen at the feast.
