    To all the fair gentles of the Kingdom of Ansteorra and beyond, their
Excellencies Vallust et Ascelyn de Bonwicke do send greetings, and hope
that this missive finds you well. You are all invited to attend our Twelfth
Night celebration to be held in Bonwicke on the twenty-second day of
January in the common year two thousand. Please join us in this time of
feasting and revelry as the Lords and Ladies of Bonwicke assemble to pay
tribute for the lands with which they have been entrusted.
    There are to be many challenges throughout the day to keep all
entertained. In our arts and sciences tournament, the various practitioners
are invited to come and exhibit their work for the enlightenment and
delight of the assembled. There will be a light armored tournament for
those ladies and lords that favour the school of fence. There will be a
heavy armored tournament that is to be held in the style of the ransom
tourney that is quite the fashion in England and France. Shop the wares of
well-traveled merchants who are sure to have something that will captivate
and entice you. Learn various skills from the gathered scribes and
teachers. And, of course, there will be a feast of abundance containing
rare and exotic dishes from the Holy Lands. Worry not of the threat of the
infidels, for they are far from our borders and our minds, and we are ready
to share with you the bounty that our Barony has to offer.
