The Crown Tournament and Kingdom A & S of William and Isolde

Unto the denizens of the Mighty Midrealm do We, Baron Fergus MacPherson and Baroness Maggie MacKeith, send warm greetings,

As the earth prepares to bloom into glorious spring, so too must we all prepare to secure the Dragon Throne. As the skies and ground celebrate seasonal renewal, so too must we celebrate the artistry and skill of those in our kingdom who create the arts of sciences of days gone by.

Please join the Barony of Shadowed Stars in welcoming our King and Queen, William and Isolde, as we host the Midrealm Spring Crown Tournament and Kingdom A&S Competition. We open wide our doors and our hearts and bid you come to our lands. We have a bountiful hearth that we are eager to share with you all, our friends. We have a beautiful site at which to marvel at the wonder of our artisans and the skills of our fighters.

Come to the Barony of Shadowed Stars on May 27 and 28, AS LII, and commemorate the history of our kingdom as we rejoice in the renewal of Spring!
