Panteria War Camp

A Pelican is Announced

panteria XI
We return once again to the secluded Caledonian Mountains of PantherVale, where fighters, archers, and artisans came together for a long weekend of feasting, fighting, carousing and competing, fencing and story-telling, equestrian and merchanting, and a rollicking good time. Little bears rode the helms of fighters in the Johan von Traubenberg Memorial Tournament, knife and axe throwers tried to free the thief and Sir Thorson helped the equestrians reenact the Battle of Hastings.

Their Royal Majesties Brion and Anna held Court to announce and recognize a Pelican, a Silver Crescent, a Youth Marshall, several Awards of Arms, a Queen's Order of Courtesy and a Maunche. They received gifts of fabric and illuminated scroll-blanks and all assembled enjoyed the Chaucerian fable as retold by the King's Bard, Lady Chiara da Montepulciano.

The feast recipes are available as Recipes, MS Word format or as Recipes, plain text format. Thanks, Morgaine!
