The Ties that Bind
31 August - 2 September
Bilbery Hill Center, Birmingham

House Ossienne invite all of the Houses of Dawn and friends from other nations to celebrate the Virtue of the Yeofolk of Dawn. Every year, House Ossienne travel to their smallholdings on the banks of the Semmerlak, to celebrate the Courage, Loyalty and Prosperity of the yeofolk who serve their house – but in honour of their new Enchantress, they would like to invite all of Dawn and the Empire to share in their celebration.

The Nobles and Troubadours of Dawn are invited to share tales and celebrate their Pride in their yeofolk with stories, song and rituals.
The Yeofolk of all houses are invited to mingle with the nobility of Dawn, to celebrate what it is to be yeofolk, and what it may mean to raise to the rank of noble in our nation.

The other nations of the Empire are invited to come and celebrate the traditions of Dawn – to learn what it is to be yeofolk and noble – and what it takes to make the decision to be one or the other.
While the great Summer storms rage across the Semmerlak, let us all rejoice that we are safely ashore, and prepare for the challenges of the season to come.

OC Information:

Cost: £85

Friday – Sunday, Fully catered, indoor sleeping

The event will take place between the Summer and Autumn main Empire events

Writing on The Wall
3pm, 30th June 2018
Location: Pomegranate Restaurant, 1 Antigua Street, EH1 3NH Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Facebook link: https://www.facebook.com/events/593583851006287/

A new story has been added to the Great Walls of Damata, the tale of the Sinking of the Freeborn Storm. Argi i Guerra and the Celesti invites the great and the good of the Empire to join them for a banquet before the grand unveiling of the engraving (and inevitable street party).

OOC
This is a strongly Freeborn flavoured event and tickets were made available to members of the Brass Coast first. The event is a one off gathering, no combat, no threat. It’s a chance to have fun, mingle and sing along. I expect there may be OC socialising afterwards for those not travelling home immediately.

Booking is now open to all nations.

Sunset over Serra Briante
August 18th-19th
Gunman Airsoft - Eversley, RG27 0PY, Fleet, Hampshire

An evening of feasting, singing and sparring in the north Kahraman Hills hosted by the Golden Harpies band of Kohan.

“It is late summer YE382, the Harpies move north to prepare an abandoned fortress in Serra Briante for occupation over the winter. The Northen border with Liathaven must be held, and watched, but life is short - let it never be dull! To celebrate another summer of war well fought, the Harpies invite you to an evening in their company in Serra Briante. Although the barracks are not yet finished, a nearby Navarr steading, displaced from their homeland to the north, have offered their village for sleeping in. Bring songs, bring stories, bring your virtuous selves and perhaps a little roseweald - you can’t be too careful with the border so close.”

Nemesis
November 9th-11th
Huntley Wood, near Stoke on Trent, ST10 2NS

A trip is being planned to the Broken Shore to pay a visit to the Grendel. We won’t be bringing them chocolates or flowers.

This will be a combat-heavy event, but will have significant amounts of non-combat plot concerning magic, religion, morality, and problem-solving. It will not necessary to be a combatant to enjoy it, but do note that it is intended to be tough, with refs who are entirely happy with characters dying if they cock things up.

The trigger for the event is personal plot for a few players, but there are plenty of reasons why others might want to come. If you’d like to know more IC, come and find the appropriate people IC :slight_smile:

See the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1737822166299754/ for details.

There are separate pages linked from there for players and crew. Crewing will involve playing Grendel on their home ground, with a dedicated IC base to work from - EMUs welcome.

Cost: £50 to play, £5 to crew, £25 to be catered for. Limited indoor accommodation available.

Longest Night, Winters Turn: An Empire Social
9th February 2019
InSpire - the Crypt at St Peter’s, Liverpool Grove, SE17 2HH London

“To the people of the Empire,

We Exiles End invite you to join us to celebrate the Longest Night to reflect on a year marked by great feats of Winter Magic. The Shades of Winter steading of Miaren have stated they open their doors to any who wish to join us and there is shelter and food aplenty for any who would travel the trods to celebrate with us. It is simple fair but the fire is warm, the drink is spiced and the drums are calling. Come dance with us. “

The Long Night is often celebrated by the Navarr but tends to be a quieter affair as bad weather can make it challenging to congregate in great numbers.

It’s a mid-Winter gathering at a waystation in Miaren. As such it’s open to all Nations. There will be some mid-winter games.

6 hours timed in.

Costs: £30. There will be food but you are welcome to bring your own. Discounts for those with special diets. BYOB cup and plate please.

We will take bookings first and if we reach the critical number of players we will then ask for payment. Once paid we cannot offer refunds except for exceptional circumstances unfortunately as all money will go straight on the venue. Swapping and selling on tickets by agreement.

A Space To Think And Breathe
11th - 13th January 2019
The Jarman Centre, Newmarket

Adina’s Charge invite you to visit for a day of debate and relaxation at their home. On the border between Casinea and Reikos the Chapterhouse is at the top of Wavecrest Mount - one of the more obvious inspirations for the Chapter’s symbol: a long sloping hill on three sides and a cliff to the east that goes down to the road.

When war comes to Reikos it is one of the first lines of defence for Casinea, but at the moment it is peaceful. With the chaos in the Empire at present they wish to share that peace with others and give them a space to think and breathe.

There will be a series of 10 minute presentations by guest speakers (To be arranged) throughout the day that guests can choose to attend, ending at dinner time. After that the evening is free for you to talk, sing, or continue discussions from earlier as you wish.

We hope that you will join us and take some time away from the stress of Anvil and everyday life.

Josephine, Melchior and Barachel of Adina’s Charge.

OC Details:

This is a social player event being held at Adina’s Charge in Casinea. There will be no plot and no planned combat or sparring, you will not need weapons, but if you want to spar you can choose to bring some. Time in will be Saturday only from 10am to whenever people go to bed.
