Event details
As populace of The Barony of Settmour Swamp make preparations to celebrate their thirtieth gathering to search for wit and wisdom news of a foul crime has reached us.  The great ring of King Solomon, the very ring that gives the King power over man and Jinn has been stolen.  It has been decreed that all who would accept the Quest to search for the stolen ring assemble on the appointed day at the appointed spot within the Barony of Settmour Swamp and await further instructions. 

Champions:

As we wait for the questers to gather and their quest to start, tournaments will be hosted by our new Baron and Baroness to determine their champions in heavy weapons, rapier, archery and thrown weapons. 
So too will be a contest of arts and sciences wherein their Excellences will choose their champion of arts by aid of populace vote so come by and gaze upon the wonders made by hands.  Bring anything you've made and would like to enter, there are no categories.  .

After the feast we challenge you to gather around our fire pit and entertain us with your songs and stories.  The best of all will be named our Bardic Champion.

As in years past there will be a brewing competition as well so please come share your skill.

Feast:

There shall be a Persian feast served in the grove on Saturday evening prepared by Lord Wilhelm van Utrecht.  The feast will be limited to 100 gentles so we ask you to please register early.  Check back soon for the menu. 

Quest:
