Will the peace continue?

Their Majesties are currently in council and we anxiously await their decrees and decisions relating to the continuation of relations between teh Kingdoms.

At their majesties pleasure, the Barony of Tarnmist will provide a suitable site for the second annual meeting of the armies of the West and Caid to prove their valor on the field.

The event will be held in Rancho El Chorro Park in San Luis Obsipo, (half way between San Francisco and Los Angeles; please see map for more details). Unloading of baggage wains may begin on Friday at five P.M.

There are many different battle scenarios planned which include war archery, so don't forget your screen for your helms.
