The campaign season has ended, the Harvest War has been fought and a time of relative peace has entered the realm. The mother bear has laid down to rest and will not be seen till spring and even the mighty Gryphon has spoken and said "Geeze! its cold!" And so leaving the kingdom in the capable hands of the dark King Sir Morgan, flew south to go and kick the Aten Sun Dragon's arse (ever wonder why we head south every Febuary). And so it was the land slowly passed under the shadow of winter and life did seep from the earth into a deep sleep - Across the great kingdom of Artemisia a time a darkness and hybernation has consumed us. Till one day, in the most ancient  barony of Loch Salann, did the beautiful Lady Ashe'el let a great sigh and speak.....
" I'm bored. lets throw a party! "

And so the heralds were called forth, and messages were sent and the Kingdom did take of the mighty call to "PARTY!!!!".

And let it be so that upon the tenth day of December a Great Masque will be held in the style of the late Henry the VIII and his Tudor court. Dust off those spiffy duds, and make/buy/acquire yourself a masque and come join the fun! There will be a costume and mask competition. A "fools" competition. Children's activities and food to boot. So mark you calendars for December tenth and make sure to be there.
