Merchants will be on the strip of ground between the building and the parking lot (where we were last year), to the left of the door to the Armory. Bring your own tables & seating, as well as a sunshade/raincover-- we'll be outside no matter what the weather. Fighting will be on the parking lot this year, so merchants will get better exposure this year. As in past years, there is no fee for merchants. Contact Sigulf Karlnar (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like a merchants space-- we typically assign a 10' x 10' space, but can give extra room if needed, as long as space is available.
St. Wulf, St. Tasha, and St. Booger were miraculous gentles of Rivenstar's earlier days, whose legends faded into obscurity but were rediscovered in 2003. In their honor, we co-hosted "Three Saints and a Pig" with the Barony of White Waters (The Baron at the time, His Excellency Koontz, was known to have a thing for pigs; we don't ask, we just eat what he cooks).
following year, to honor the
venerable Fifi, first sheep ever to be used in a Rustler's Tourney, we
hosted "Three Saints and a Sheep," and for 2005, we had the
pirate-themed "Three Saints and a Parrot", complete with RivenstARR
banner in the feast hall.
In 2006, the theme was Byzantine, with "Three Saints and a Goat" and locally-raised chevron on the feast table, complemented by locally-crafted goat cheeses.
For 2007, Three Saints and a Reindeer, we featured authentic Viking weather (it snowed on Saturday, and ONLY on Saturday, with Friday and Sunday sunny and in the mid-50s) and a feast including venison, elk, and fish.
In 2008, the event animal was The Hare (of the Dog), and it appears that switching to a springtime animal worked, since the event weather was beautiful.
For 2009, we wanted to honor our tradition as being the first major event of the melee season (and make sure we had the warmest weather possible), so we went with Three Saints and a Tyger, complete with Indian-inspired dishes at feast.
The year 2010 offered up Three Saints and a Honeybee - mostly because we needed an excuse to make baklava.
In 2011 we celebrated Three Saints and a Coronation, 'cause, well, duh, it was Coronation!
The year 2012 marking our tenth anniversary, the Barony celebrated Three Saints in the Fountain of Youth, featuring Spanish and New World dishes - especially chocolate.
