Last Week

Angels/Altavia Yule featured three members of the Shire in the Bardic Competition: Don Todde Mac Donnell, The Honorable Lady Mora Ottavia Spadera, and Lord Paul fitz Denis. Congratulations to Lord Paul, who was named Seraph Bard as the Bardic Champion of the Barony of the Angels. For more details, talk to Todde, Mora, Paul, Gwen, Delphine, or Lodovico. Paul, Gwen, Delphine, and Mora also attended Gyldenholt/Lyondemere Yule, which was similarly full of feasting, merriment, song, and magic wands.
