Event details
The Shire of Rusted Woodlands extends a welcome to one and all to join us at the Sixth Annual East Kingdom Novice Day! 

This is the perfect opportunity for those newest to the Knowne World to explore and showcase their talents in all disciplines.  Those gentles better acquainted with our lands will be able to meet new people and share their knowledge and experience with those who are still exploring these current middle ages. 

An attempt at pre-1600s clothing is requested.  For those who do not yet have their own garb, we will have Gold Key (loaner clothes) available at Troll (check-in) when you arrive.  If you are concerned we won't have something suitable for your needs, please contact Konner MacPherson at lordkonner@yahoo.com

The wearing and displaying of regalia, personal heraldry, and other trappings is encouraged at this event.  This will grant newcomers the opportunity to enquire and learn about the customs and orders of the society.

Music is also a part of our current Middle Ages!  If you would like to share your musical talents during processionals, please contact Sirion Dobbs (Walshd15@gmail.com) AND Eyja of the Isles (Erykameyer@gmail.com) to make arrangements.

If you interested in Merchanting at Novice Day, there is no additional charge.  The site has many picnic tables for use outside; some inside space is also available.  Please contact Sirion Dobbs (Walshd15@gmail.com) AND Eyja of the Isles (Erykameyer@gmail.com) for more information.
