12th Night: A 1001 Atlantian Nights
January 11 (5:00 PM) - 13 (12:00 AM), 2019
Barony of Sacred Stone
Who hasn't dreamed of the enchanted time brought to life by the stories of the Arabian Nights? Stories from the Islamic Golden Age, of Aladdin and his wonderful lamp, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, and let's not forget Sinbad the Sailor, and his seven voyages. The tales range from love stories to tragedies, and everything in between: djinns, sorcerers, magicians, and of course, legendary places.
Whether your dreams are filled with history or fantasy, this will be the event for you! Just like our heroine Scheherzade, you are only limited by your own imagination. For those who enjoy the history, research the Abbasid Caliph Harun al-Rashid and Sassanid Empire, for those who prefer a more magical time, peruse the stories of 1001 Nights, and revel in the fantasy and help set the stage for our own Atlantian Twelfth Night celebration.
Delve into the stories and find your magic in one of the day's activities. The merchants here will celebrate those grand stories by creating our own street bazaar, come shop and socialize. On Friday night there will be bardic, gaming, and merchants will be open to welcome you into our own tale, a weekend of fun, joy, and love. On Saturday there will be various A&S competitions, the Kingdom Bardic Championship, dancing, games, the St. Anne's Runway Challenge, and general merriment. But, wait, don't leave early. The feast will be a legendary story within itself that you will not want to miss. Book a room early, you will not want to miss the stories from the Atlantian Arabian Nights celebration.
