Baroness Leonete D’Angely has once again turned out a “Betting Man’s Guide” for the Laurels vs. Pelicans boffer melees along with her father and partner in crime, Master Liam St. Liam. Guides cost $1. You can buy them online or in person at the Laurels vs. Pelicans melee at Panteria.
To buy a copy online, go to www.laurelsvspelicans.com and contribute $1 using the PayPal button. A pdf of the Guide will be sent to your email address. Your donation will go to the Pennsic war chest and help fund Pennsic activities such as the Knowne World Party which is going to be held after opening ceremonies.
Baroness Katherine Barr, former Seneschale of the East, evened up the sides in the Laurels vs. Pelicans melee by joining the Pelicans yesterday. “I thought I would give the Laurels a fighting chance by not using my shield and sword, Dietrich, from last year.”
Fundraising for the melee was supposed to end tonight so the weapons makers had time to construct specialty weapons. Sir Michael of York and Lord Gregory of York, who build the weapons with a team of volunteers, have offered to extend the deadline. Continue reading »
The Laurels vs. Pelicans will be fighting in a boffer melee to raise money for the Pennsic War Chest. The War Chest supports Pennsic related expenses associated with the Royalty such as the Known World Party (which will happen after opening ceremonies), the Royalty dinner and the Queen’s Tea. Rumor is that the Known World Party is something the populace will not want to miss this year.
More pelicans have joined. Despontissa Margarita Kofinopoia, the Scourge of Somethingorother, hopes to take the field with a broom; Maestro Dorio of the Oaks, The Peaceful Negotiator, wants a Feather of Doom; and Master Ulric von der Insel is fundraising for a Giant Spoon. The Laurels gained Mistress Eva Woderose, The Killigrapher.
The most senior peer in the melees, Master Leiftameon, added a specialty weapon of juggling clubs. He received his Laurel thirty-three years ago. If he makes the $100 level, the weapon makers will make clubs balance them so he can juggle them on the field.
Mistress Mirabel has already raised enough money to get a sheep, Mistress Dzioginte gets a shovel and Master Edward will have Cuddles, the Giant Scorpion of Doom. Other peers are still in need of some fun weapons that the crowd will love. You can see who you might want to support – and help support some Pennsic fun at www.laurelsvspelicans.com.
This year’s list of Laurels and Pelicans has been announced for the Laurels vs. Pelicans boffer melees. The fundraiser will benefit the Pennsic war chest. Peers are given weapons based on how much money is donated in their name. They can take the field at Panteria with something as small as a dagger or as fantastical as a giant scorpion. To support your favorite peer, go to www. laurelsvspelicans.com. Any peer who hasn’t signed up and wants to should send an email to the organizers.
Available weapons and their cost are:
Dagger – $25
Sword – $50
Sword and Shield – $75
Specialty Weapon – $100
The peers are listed below with their fighting nicknames and desired specialty weapons (if they have them). Continue reading »
The following warriors entered the lists on a gorgeous spring day to compete for the honor of becoming Prince of the East Kingdom and crowning their consort as Princess.
There were 4 round robin lists to start the day. The top 4 combatants (*starred*) were taken from each pool to compete in a double elimination tournament.
The populace of the East Kingdom gathered together in the Shire of Rusted Woodlands on the 4th of the month of May Anno Societatis 48, called in the Common Era, 2013, to witness the great feats of it’s own warriors as they competed for the honor of being the King’s or Queen’s Champion of Arms. As befits an event which is the first of a fresh new year, the air was filled with the fresh promise of Spring and the sights of many where fixed upon great new potential. The format for the day’s competition was explained, as the scent of fire and meat filled the air from the day board offerings. His Majesty gathered all around to speak of the meaning of that for which they fought this day. Drawing the sword of state from it’s sheath as it was held by his soon to be retired champion, Brennan mac Fearghus, he read the motto etched upon it, Justitia Virtutum Regina recited it’s translation, Justice is Queen of Virtues, and then discussed the deeper meaning and great honor behind the statement.
And then the competition began. Continue reading »
