From the Kingdom Minister of Arts and Sciences, October AS LI

Greetings to all the Artists, Craftspersons, Researchers and Scientists of the Realm!moas_75x75

If you missed the Kingdom Craftspersons’ Faire which was held at Coronation in September, you missed something special. But it’s not too late for you to participate in Regional Craftspersons’ Faires which will be held this fall and in spring. The next two Faires will be North Oaken at Red Dragon On October 1, and South Oaken at Christmas Tourney on December 3. Craftspersons’ Faires are a way for you to hone your display skills and show the breadth and depth of your work. Many of the Regional Craftspersons’ Faires now feature Laurel Prize Tourneys, so make sure read the webpage for the event and contact the Regional MOAS if you have any questions about participating in the Craftspersons’ Faire.

Breaking Missive: Prince Edmund Feared Lost At Sea

Foul winds bring bad tidings as sad news has reached Our shores. As many of you know Our Heir, Prince Edmund, set out upon crusade to recover relics of the Midrealm pillaged by heathens from the east. While on this journey, the ship in which he sailed was engulfed in a tremendous storm and has not been seen since. It is feared lost at sea with no survivors.

This post will be updated with more news as it comes available. 

From TRH to All Archers of the Midrealm

All toxophilites draw nigh and pay heed to this challenge of Edmund, 94th King of the Middle Kingdom (almost)

In the spirit of that most famous of archers, Robin Hood, I am minded to pull together a Merry Band of archers: skilled archers who are strong of arm, keen of eye, and generous of heart.

To that end, I challenge all archers to meet me on the line and prove yourselves worthy of this Merry Band. To join, you only have to do one simple thing. Beat me. At each event I attend I will take to the line and post a score. Any and all can shoot against my score, provided you demonstrate the generosity of Robin’s band by providing canned goods/non-perishable food items as your entry fee (all of which will be donated to the local food pantry). Any who beat me can join my Merry Band of archers and will receive a token signifying their membership. Each event I shoot at you can shoot against me again and augment your badge.

So check your fletches, wax your strings, load up your grocery basket, and come join Edmund’s Merry Band!
