Greetings Good Gentles,
The harvest season is approaching and the Barony of Sentinels’ Keep invites you to join us for a celebration of the year's bounty and the investiture of a new Baron and Baroness. We will gather on the 3rd day of October in Lolo, MT at the Community Center for the baronial changeover, fighting, a largess competition, the Baronial Auction, and so much more.
We look forward to having you join us for a day of great company, good food, and to welcome in our new Baron and Baroness!
HE Illora of the West Lea & Lady Sarah Douglas
Events of the Day
Hersyr Morgan and Banbharun Caointiarn will be stepping down from their tenure as Baron and Baroness of our great Barony after three blessed years. A new Baron and Baroness will be stepping up, pending the results of the Baronial Polling that is currently happening.
New champions for the Barony will be chosen for armored combat and rapier combat. Stay tuned in to the Baronial and Event Facebook pages for details about the tournaments for the new champions.
An A&S Largess Competition will be hosted by the Baron and Baroness. Hersyr Morgan and Banbharun Caointiarn will be the judges of the competition. The largess will go to the new Baron and Baroness so they have gifts to give when they travel throughout the lands.
A space will be set up for the artisans of the Kingdom to display their works. As we have not had many in-person events this year, this is a time for our artisans to share what they have created this year and to display items that have been entered into the virtual competitions that have occurred throughout the year.
Clean out your closets! Make space in your garage! The Barony of Sentinels’ Keep is having it’s annual auction. Donations for the auction will be accepted at the gate. Proceeds will go to the general fund.
There will be a limited number of indoor merchant spaces available. Contact the event steward via email only to reserve a space. Indoor spaces will be allotted on a first-come, first-served basis. Weather permitting, there will be plenty of space available outdoors for merchants to set up small pop-ups.
Food and Feasting
