Hidden Mountain Baronial Birthday
April 27- 29, 2018
Barony of Hidden Mountain
Hail thee fine gentles as we embark on a travel to the Silk Road. Like merchants of old, this event is centered on the travails and tribulations of getting ones wares to market. From caravan guards and swarthy sailors, knotty artwork and witty repartee, to exotic foods or just a taste of home these were just a few of the things one may encounter along the way. There will be fighting and archery! (of course after all there were brigands out there)There will be A&S to show of thy skills, gifts and wares! And perhaps with a little luck, a bard or two will join in and share a few traveling tales of their own!
