    The Skaran Faire was held Tuesday evening in beautiful Skara Brae.

    Hosting the event was The Spiritwood Rangers and Lady Ouija, Governor of Skara Brae.

    It was a cool evening in the lovely town... the loamy smell of freshly turned earth and budding trees filled the air as guests mingled and partook of the fine foods and drinks available.

    The warm glow of the lamps lent a festive air to the gathering....


    As the participants of the Seed contest submitted their entries for verification.. the archers gathered on the east side of the Community Center where buttes had been set up. Many of the lands most esteemed bowman were present... and much cheering was heard from the gathering of spectators as they watched the archers begin the contest.


    The match got heated during the first few rounds when Lil Ernie, Legolas, and Tobias Cardont all shot identical scores and had to shoot a tiebreaker.

    After some truly glorious shooting Legolas [UP] immerged as the victor... with Scarst [G^T] taking the runner up prize.

    Truly some marvelous bowmanship on both parts!

    After the awarding of the archery prizes by Gillian Wilkins [R+S]... the winner of the Seed Contest was announced...

    Adrian Monk [LSM] took the prize with a score of 414!

    And then... after much eating and drinking... the winner of the Potluck cookoff was announced..

    Tserim Arryth absolutely wowed the judges with a fabulous doughnut recipe!
    Tserim then scored a double by taking the Story Telling award as well.. Great Job!

    After the competitions, people mingled, drank, and gossiped...

    A notable visitor to the affair was the strange little imp that is said to be somehow involved in the Crowns search for the Artifacts and possibly the abduction of The King.


    He recited a little poem for the gathered folk.... that went as follows:

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    Relvinian Hath said,
    To an early grave your king flew

    But don't be sad!
    For he, you may recover
    Bring the Artifacts of the Pentad
    And a grim fate he may not suffer

    Sadly, my work is incomplete
    A story yet to be finished.
    Uncertain is the fate you will meet.
    When CHAOS will not diminish.

    Much speculation was heard the rest of the evening as people discussed his cryptic words.

    All in all it was a wonderful gathering and the next event hosted in this woodland town is eagerly anticipated!

    Thank you Governor Ouija, and The Spiritwood Rangers for a wonderful evening!

    I really had very little to do with the fine event.
    A few last minute construction requests is all. Messages to the counsel of the King. We were fortunate to have available hands with the King's status.
    It was run and run very well by Gillian Wilkins and other members of the fine Rangers of Spiritwood.
    I sadly had to retire before the imp arrived. Sounds as though we should be investigating!
    I do take these things very seriously.

    Also, the winner of the archery contest, I believe has no specific city as he is a pirate, but if he'd like to declare citizenship I will gladly grant him the title he requests (within reason).
    The winner of the seed contest will get the title "Beautification Expert" and finally the winner of the pot luck contest will receive the title "Top Chef". Simply contact me or one of my guards
    and the titles shall be issued.

    Thank you Master Ludes for the coverage and for entering our contest! Thanks to all those who attended!! Truly I had a -LOT- of help with this. All of the Rangers pitched in, but in particular: Mylar, Katalin, Eodain, and Oona. As well as Ravven of PGoH and Adrian Monk for his word of mouth skills. Governess Flutter did us proud with her communication and assistance!! And Of course, the wonderful public. You made this a success for us and we are very very glad that you came out and enjoyed!!!
