The Feast of St. Crispins

October 21, 2017

On October 25, 1415, the English, under the command of Henry-V, won a decisive, crushing victory against the French. After the metaphorical dust had settled, Henry reportedly promised that not a year should pass when St. Crispin's Day should cease to be remembered. Therefore, we at Mt. Edge, are minded to observe that day in history. We honor this tradition every October with a grand feast. We will also be holding our monthly Council meeting towards the end of the evening - all are welcome to attend!

As usual, we hold our Arts-and-Sciences Defender's Tournament at this event! If interested in entering, please have your projects ready. If interested in entering, please bring a recent A&S project and share your expertise and passion for your subject. Our Shire Archery, Thrown Weapons, and Youth Armored Combat Defenders will be chosen at this event in 2017 due to the cancellation of Acorn War.

What you're expected to bring depends on the origin of your persona. Please see below for the expected lineup of dishes, and if you have any questions or suggestions, please contact the event steward!

The details of 2017's feast have not been decided as of yet - check back for further updates!
