Fur & Feather Tavern – Dregate
The Fur & Feather Tavern is open to all April 19-21, but caters to rapier and bardic enthusiasts. All the steel you can eat…or serve your friends.
Rapier combat is featured during a “capture the flag” team tourney and street battles on Saturday. A War Crown-style tourney is Sunday. Erics are available for pick up fights.
The team tourney is in a maze with bleachers for spectators.
Mass combat takes place on three streets amongst numerous buildings, complete with alleys and murder holes perfect for general sneakiness.
Bring your Gerhard pistol! There is a tourney using the infamous rubber band guns in a shooting gallery.
Saturday night everyone moves to the tavern where you are given a bag of coins to purchase food, tip wenches or bards. The bardic competitor with the most coins wins the competition, same for competing wenches. There are period game and darts tourneys.
A rapier War Crown-style tourney is Sunday, with round robin fighting leading top fighters to single elimination until two are left to lead participants through war scenarios.
