The Seventeenth Year

Captaincy Tourney -- Winter's Gate
September 25, 1982 (AS XVII)

From The Guardian (November, 1982):

The Province of Winter's Gate held its September tourney to choose the Captain of the militia on September 25 at Highkeep. The event began with a quest to release Mistress Morgana, the province seneschale, from the clutches of her appallingly tasteless captors, the Red Imperialists. The good lady was speedily delivered by a group of gallant trolls (visiting from Selviergard especially for the occaision) and she and her cat returned to the midst of the rejoicing populace.

The victor of the tourney, and new Captain of Winter's Gate, was Rellik, and the new Heart is Rhianna. The two were circletted (with the new circlets created by Alicianne de Montfort of Sprucewood, Gregory de Montfort, and Lord Hirsch von Henford) at court. Feasting and revelling followed until the late hours. Thanks to all who attended (many of them at an event for the first time) and thanks to Edmund de Montfort of Highkeep, the autocrat. Also thanks to Lord Hirsch von Heenford for the design of the highly entertaining quest. And thanks to Pheonix, the kitten, for her patience in captivity.
