From The Page (June, 2002):
Journey to Venice, land of beauty, bounty, and gracious custom! Join Patrick and Katla as Their heirs are chosen and venture into a land of culinary delights. The site is a lovely wooded hamlet, near clear waters and prosperous farmland, decorated to match the festivity of the occasion. Cross swords with gallant opponents, dance and sing in the tradition of the Renaissance, and do honor to the new Coronets as They are invested. Her Highness Katla is pleased to sponsor a Roses Tourney after the conclusion of the Coronet List Fighters: Please supply a painted shield, no larger than 4 x 6 inches, for the List Board.
