Another winter has been endured and Cold
Keep is greeting the spring by holding tournaments! All good
gentles are invited to vie for the honour of representing our
fair Shire as Heavy, Rapier, Archery, or Arts and Science
Champion. There is something for everyone, so come cheer on
all worthy participants. This is a two-day event to fit in
all of the fun and competitions, and the opportunity to be a
Cold Keep Champion!
The Peers of Cold
Keep, Viscountesses Tatiana and Natal’ia, will be
putting on a four-remove feast on Saturday night, followed by
a dessert auction. Donations of desserts will be accepted
until just before the feast.
It has been bruited around the Shire that
Viscount Toryn has demanded that Viscountess Natal’ia leave
her home and family in Cold Keep to attend him in Borealis.
Her Excellency has refused, resulting in House Huscarle’s
stating that they intend to come to our peaceful Shire with
the intent of removing the lady, by force of arms if needed.
The Viscountess’ own household, her brothers and sisters of
the Wolfpack, are rallying their troops and the Shire of Cold
Keep is mustering all levies to face this threat to one of
our own. It is said the two groups plan to meet in battle on
the morning of May 31st.
