Well My Lady, you are in luck!  It just so happens that the Barony of Bjornsborg is hosting an event in about 2 weeks -- the Ransom Tourney, Feb 22-24, at Savernake.  Lots of fighting, lots of fun, a chance to do some great, fun persona play (it's easy, really) and to definitely take back stories and memories.  AND you'll get a chance to see examples of the handiwork of Master Cynric -- who is One with both Stone and Straw Bale -- and the others who've helped with the building out there.

Check out our baronial website, or the Savernake website, either of which should route you toward the event information (OK, I don't remember the style of the site, I'm a bad autocrat, nyeah! -- but a simple search for such awfully common names as "Bjornsborg" and "Savernake" oughta get you there).

Hope to see you there!

Having never been (shame on me!) to any event held in/by Bjornsborg/Savernake...I'm so impressed by the photos that I really must attend an event at the next opportunity.  Great job yews guys!
