A Sign for Entertainers – Mug the Gate
Ever wish there was a way to have wandering performers, entertainers, and bards know that your fire or camp is entertainer-friendly? Fret no more! A symbol has arisen to help keep your camp entertained – simply hang a mug bedecked with ribbons from your camp gate.
This indicates that when the mug is hanging, performers are welcome. The tradition comes from an old Calontir custom and the bardic community hopes to reinvigorate, revive, and widen its use so it is recognizable throughout the Known World.
While it is customary to offer to fill the cup of a performer in exchange for a performance, if you are willing to offer additional refreshment be assured the traveling performers of the Known World greatly appreciate the gesture.
