Greetings from Mistress Una Wynifreed Berry to the people of the Middle Kingdom

There are rumors of war this coming summer. Preparation for Pennsic War has started. We will need the artisans of the Kingdom to help win the A&S war point.

We will not be using our criteria. However, more details will follow soon as to the rubric that will be used. There will be a team of 10, including allies. Any artisan may enter including Laurels. There will be a display by the artisans who wish to be members of our team at Simple Day. (more…)

Missive From the Kingdom Minister of Arts & Sciences

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

I hope that if you attended Pennsic this year you were able to sample some of the fantastic classes, performances, and demonstrations that filled every day! And if you taught classes, performed, or did service to help A&S activities at Pennsic, thank you! I am always so proud of how many Midrealmers I see active in the arts and sciences at Pennsic, and always amazed to see all the varied pursuits we bring to share with one another.

Now Pennsic may be over, but September has some amazing events full of A&S goodness waiting for you: September 2-5 RUM RUSH in the Barony of Shattered Crystal, September 17 Botega at Three Towers, and September 24 Coronation, which will also feature Kingdom Craftspersons Faire!

Yours in Service
Halla of Mugmort
