That noble family that had served Drache and Arangoth would also be retired to their Transdarianian estates. An oath of fealty was required for them to retain those lands, but once that business was taken care of, her desk was effectively cleared for everything else.
First order of business was the delayed celebrations of not only the end of the civil war, but her investiture as Sithire.
The messengers and criers had their fliers and rushed forth from Castle Black like so many ants scurrying away.
"Hear ye, hear ye! The Sithire declares a celebration festival! Tournament of Martial Prowess entries to be taken at the mayor's office!"
Their voices filled squares and streets as they made their way through the city. Fliers were posted on doors and sign posts in the various squares of Drache.
The flier reads:
Her Grace Sithire Isabelle Auxerre delcares a time of festival in Drache and Transdarianian to celebrate the end of the Arangothian Civil War, her investiture as sithire and her enagement to Asnerith Dreth, Sithire of Minkbrantha.
Merchants and traders from far and near are invited and welcomed to Drache to do business for the month of Last Seed.
A Tournament of Martial Prowess will be held in the latter portion of the month. Interested parties are directed to inquire at the mayor's office at the Civic Building. Archery and armed competition will be a single elimination style tourney.
First place purse: 3500 crown
Second place purse: 1000 crown
The noble wedding will be held at Castle Black and all are invited to attend. The keep's larders will be thrown open and the city will be feasted to celebrate. Castle Black and the Market Square will both have tables set up with food, ale and wine for three days after the wedding.
Actual date of the wedding and tournament TBD due to OOC scheduling.
Please sign up for the tournament on this thread including the character's name and which competition you're entering, armed or archery, weapon (if armed) and your hours of time availability with time zone. Only one character per competition.
Keep in mind that in the past, tournament bouts have lasted upwards of 3 hours, and to play through three brackets will be time investment heavy.
LAST DAY FOR SIGN UPS IS SATURDAY, AUGUST 5TH.
