Oyez, Oyez, Oyez.

Pray take heed one and all.  This weekend will see the return of a most
wondrous and glorious event.  This weekend the Barony of Northkeep will host
Castellan XII.  Come join us as we see who will become our next Baronial
Castellan.  Castellan is an unusual event in that one must be proficient in
both martial and non-martial activities to claim the Castellan title.
We will have a very full day of fighting, bardic, archery, thrown weapons,
A&S, and a sumptuous feast to top it all off.  Come compete in the
competitions for the individual titles and also come and compete in multiple
fields and see if you can become our next Castellan.  Finish off the night
with bardic by the fires, dancing to the drums, or gamble the night away
betting on the rapier fights sponsored by the Raptor.
A tavern will be available for breakfast and lunch on Saturday.  There will
be many activities for youths also;  with competitions to include a quest,
physical prowess, thrown weapons (foam axes), archery, bardic and A&S.  The
children's competition will be divided into two age groups 5-12 and 13-17
years of age.  So young people, come and have fun and shoot at a real live
target for the archery competition.
