Midwinter's Tale
January 28, 2012
Shire of Border Vale Keep

As the cold grips fair Atlantia, the Shire of Border Vale Keep offers warmth and good company at Midwinter’s Tale. This year we will be encouraging the colors of the day being blue and white in honor of our glorious kingdom. Once again, we have grand prizes for our competitors.  Prizes are as follows: for armored combat, Baroness Astrid will be making a custom fit and decorated tunic for the winner of each tourney (one knight and one unbelt); for rapier, Duchess Isabel will be making a silk banner; for thrown weapons, a set of throwing knives will be gifted by Baron Olafr and Baroness Aldis; and for target archery, shafts/splines will be gifted by Lord Sven. For our arts and science competition, we will have a basket filled with linen fabric.
