Documentation is always highly rewarded, but not essential for entry. It can be an unfinished piece, but it must have been started in the last year for it to be entered. Come and show us your mad painting & writing skillz!

General Guide:

Site opens at 1pm

Tournament to be finished by 4pm for the final court of Giles and Maude where they will step down as Baron and Baroness of St Florian de la Riviere.

Hall opens for 6pm.

First night court will start at some time between 6:30 and 7, where the knighting of Tomas Eskelson and the investiture of Bain and Bianca as the Baron and Baroness of St Florian de la Riviere will occur as well as any other business Their Majesties choose to do.

Bain and Bianca will then sit in state, and anyone is welcome to approach them with words or gifts rather than occupy court time.

Then after a reasonable period of time we will have the first court of Bain and Bianca as Baron and Baroness of St Florian de la Riviere.

Master William Castille will be acting as Their Majesties herald for the night, and will ask for business at the appropriate time.
