  • Ornament
    – Her Excellency Stromgard is sponsoring an
    ornament exchange/contest! Each person who wishes to participate
    bring 2 ornaments (all generally the same), one ornament will be
    used as an exchange between those participating and the other will
    be donated a local 501c3. The winner of the ornament contest will
    be chosen by the populace.
  • Newcomer Persona
    Chatelaine, I’d like to host an entry level persona challenge for
    newcomers and new players. You DO NOT have to have your persona set
    in stone, just choose a tentative name, culture, time period you’d
    like to explore.
    “How the Game Shall Proceed”:
    1) You will dress in persona appropriate garb (yes, you can borrow
    from friends, or our Gold Key if they have something that works for
    At Yule:
    2) You be asked to answer three persona “mystery questions”.
    3) You will make something your persona would use, based on items
    in a (provided) “mystery box”.
    AND you’ll get 3 lifelines (your choice of assistance persons) who
    you can use for any reason for up to five minutes per lifeline
    during the game. But if your lifeline is a Peer (Laurel, Pelican,
    Knight) or Nobility (Baron, Baroness, etc.), they will need to have
    their wings clipped (for example, blindfolded or have a hand tied
    behind their back) just to keep the playing field even.
    Sound like fun? I’m giving you a head’s up so you’ve got time to
    prepare if you want
    (though you won’t need much prep – you can just show up,
