Barony of Bright Hills

Greetings good gentles, I beseech upon you to hear my tale and join me in arms for a great battle that is to come against unholy and undying forces!

In the fall of last October there was a drinking contest between some Lords of the Barony of Bright Hills and those of the Scottish courts.  During this contest a meal was served, one of the Scottish Lairds was served an uncooked turnip resembling a personal bit of his anatomy.  He was so angry that he had a curse set upon the lands of the Barony of Bright Hills that within one year an army of unholy and undying warriors shall attack these lands and destroy all within.  My Astrologer, Dr. Dee has studied the stars and maps and has determined that the invasion shall occur on the 27th day of October, a day they feast and celebrate the harvest. We have been pre-warned for the battle and may rally troops to aid those warriors.  I have spoken with my advisors and Lord Melchett has determined that Lord Edmund Blackadder be the perfect man to investigate.  Dr. Dee is hard at work creating and elixir that we hope will aid us in our battles. So now I ask you good gentles to join us on this feasting day to enjoy lively friendship, great food from the cooks there and to send these terrors back from whence they came!


Join the Barony of Bright Hills on October 27th, for TnT13J Turnips and Thingies! In addition to the fun and merriment Martial and A&S activities will be held to choose our Baronial Champions. For the children, we will have activities and a separate feast with trick-or-treating in the hall. (Please consider bringing a bag of treats for the little ghosts and goblins.)
