The Twelfth Year

Lord Defender’s Tourney & Second Annual Winter Feast -- Shire of Eskalya
January 14, 1978

From The Page (December, 1977):

SECOND ANNUAL WINTERFEAST AND LORD DEFENDER'S TOURNEY

This festive event will occur in the Shire of Eskalya (Anchorage, Alaska). The current Lord Defender, Einrich Armpitsbane, will be the Autocrat (contact info omitted).

There will undoubtedly be many contests in the arts, cooking, poetry, and other events to please and satisfy all the lords and ladies. The feast will be pot luck, with the cooking contest starting after the initial appetites have been appeased.

For information and/or crash space, contact the Autocrat or the Seneschal: Jenyvr (contact info omitted).

From The Page (May, 1978):

Our entire information on this is that Lord Ulrich von Matanuska is the new Lord Defender of Eskalya (Anchorage, Alaska).
