The Seventeenth Year

Peasant's Revolt! -- Golden Rivers
May 23, 1982 (AS XVII)

From The Page (May, 1982):

FELLOW DOWN-TRODDEN WORKERS OF THE WEST!

Perhaps, you, too, laughed (as we did) when they warned us of the infiltration of the Facist Bandit Gang. BEWARE! Even in the verdant valley of the peaceful Province of the Golden Rivers, the warning has come true! Our Seneschal, supposedly dedicated to the well-being of the populace, bloats by battering on beleagured, beaurocrat-beridden citizenry! Squeezed to the bone by her back-breaking taxes, pierced to the quick by her disdainful demeanour, our substance wasted, our holdings mortgaged, our patience exhausted--we rise in opposition! (We're going to fight, guys!) We call on all hearts brave and true (and sword arms) to aid in our struggle! The confrontation with the running dogs and lackies of this brutal (but beautiful) bureaucrat will take place on MAY 23RD, at Orangevale Park in Sacramento. The contests for this event are: Best Peasants Costume, Best Groveling, Best Tourney Peasant's Weapon, Best Essay arguing for or against the Principality Seneschal siding with her Lord, who is the instigator of this revolt, and Best Insults (no profanity) against either the peasants or the nobility.

Contact Charles Smokeater at (phone) for further details, and especially if you are coming from out of town, as the site is still tentative and may change at the last minute.

SERFS UP!                             REMEMBER RUNNYMEAD!
