From the northern reaches of Delftwood comes Whisperings of Wyldwood. Strange on-goings has caused a stirring among archers to take up the bow and throwers to take up the ax within the newly discovered Wyldwood. Nestled among a wooded glade and around a creekside path does the Barony invite our populace and friends to engage in sport, as well as witness the chosen who will become the new Baronial Archery and Thrown Weapons Champions.
This year, to honor the memory of Orm of Loch Mor and the origin of the first Wyldwood, we are going back to the basics for this event. There will be many types of shooting and throwing fun offered including a novelty shoots/throws and other diabolical tests of prowess from the outgoing Champions.
Merchants will be on-hand selling their wares as well as an area set aside for those who just want a fun day out in the sun.
Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control, Pies the Limit had to cancel out. At this point, I am not sure if there is time enough to find another food vendor. IF I come up with something I will post immediately. For the time being, the only food for the event will be what you bring in with you.
There will be a court held during the day and afterwards if weather permits, we will invite bards of all skills to entertain with stories, song or music fitting the locale. There will be a dirty half dozen largesse tournament for the artisans among you (rules will be posted on event page).
If space permits and if marshals are present, there may be fencing and heavy pick up practices. More information will be found at our Facebook event page https://www.facebook.com/
