Barony Beyond the Mountain/Bergental Yule

Greetings, one and all! As the days grow cold and the North wind begins its relentless pursuit, it’s time to seek the warm welcoming halls of good neighbors and friends. The Barony Beyond the Mountain and our Northern neighbor Bergental, have, once again, combined our efforts to provide such a haven to all who would seek it! We welcome you to join Their Majesties and Their Highnesses in our hall for a day of feasting, marshal activities, classes, competitions, music, dancing, ceremony, and respite. Merchants are also most welcome!

There will be two fencing tournaments during the day:
Noon: Santa’s Workshop Tourney – All combatants will enter with only a single sword. The workshop will contain presents, toys, tree skirts that can be used in the off hand, if the combatant can get to them first without being struck down. This will be a bear pit style tournament that will reset after each bout. The length of the tourney will be 30 minutes.

1pm: Frostbite Tourney – This will be set up with a chance of losing limbs from competing outside. This will be determined by a roll of the dice.
1 – loss of right hand
2 – loss of left hand
3 – loss of right foot
4 – loss of left foot
5 – You are healthy, because you have a non-rigid parry to keep you warm
6- You are a natural hot box and can bring your best.

This will also be a bear pit style tournament with a length of 30 minutes.

Thrown Weapons: Weather permitting, we will have a thrown weapons range set up & some loaner weapons to hurl at innocent wood.
Rumhann MacDuibhsithe will be running the range.
