The Summer Solstice Festival of 1376 DR
« on: June 26, 2019, 01:31:05 PM »
Essembrans and travellers turned out to the grounds of Aencar's Keep to the festival celebrating the summertime and the solstice.

Lord Jarath Burlisk was there with is retinue - living and ghostly - and seeing him hale and healthy as ever put a cheer among the common folk who had seen their previous lord suffer ill health before his murder last year.

Jarath himself gave few speeches - but he did celebrate the loyalty and resilience of the people of Essembra and Battledale, and renewed the call for brave men and women seeking to make something of themselves to pledge into the service of the Mailed Mantle or the Lord's Men.

As for the contests promised by the festival, the results were:

Pie Eating Champion: Grand Mage of Mistletarn, Heliott, who holds his title for the second year running!

Pugilist Extraordinaire: Swordcaptain Birvon 'The Mountain' Bloodhorn of the Lord's Men

Keenest Eyed Archer: the ranger Maurice Greenpocket

Master of the Joust: Dragonguard Aubric Hallemont of Featherdale

'Queen of Summer', bardic favourite: Morressyn of Battledale
Her skin is pale, her eyes are red,
Her leaden voice commands the dead,
To rise and stand beside their dreadful queen.
No mortal power escapes her thrall,
Her hunger will consume us all,
And even now I hear her call: Jolene
