Event Report: Crescent Fence

Submitted by Ludwig von Rege... on June 6, 2011 - 7:48pm

The third Crescent Fence was held in Darton (after the first in Southron Gaard and the second in Ildhafn).  A diverse range of giocatore from around the Crescent Isles attended, plus (Guild Master!) Tariq ibn Jelal (ibn etc) and Juliana Northwood from Terra Rossa.  On Saturday Thomas and Ibn Jelal taught 17th C Italian rapier.  IJ's teaching of stringere was subtlly but importantly different to what I had previously learned (or rather, I think Emrys was trying to tell me something I hadn't really understood) and Thomas was very patient with my feeble attempts to gain stringere on him.  IJ t

Event Report: Festival

Submitted by Ludwig von Rege... on April 28, 2011 - 9:06pm

With Katherina and myself, William de Cameron, Rudiger and Alyenora, Anna, Svartr and Maerwynn all attending Festival this year there was a strong Ildhafn presence.  Katherina, William, Anna and I enjoyed the hospitality of the Moralez/Beaumont camp - surely the best location on site.

New Baron and Baroness chosen!

Submitted by William de Cameron on March 22, 2011 - 9:15pm

The Baronial selection process has run its course, and Their Majesties have made their decision. The next Baron and Baroness of the Barony of Ildhafn are to be Lord Rudiger and Lady Aylenora.

The proclamation from Their Majesties is included below so you may read the full text of Their words yourselves.


Greetings the Barony of Ildhafn and to the Kingdom of Lochac from Gabriel and Constanzia, King and Queen of Lochac.

Event Report: St Sebastian's

Submitted by Ludwig von Rege... on March 17, 2011 - 11:35am

The Braythwayte Manor hosted the Feast of St Sebastian for the third time last weekend.  Five of us from Ildhafn City, plus Amalie visiting from Southron Gaard, travelled to Rotorua for the event.  Of course, St Sebastian is the patron of archers, so there was much shooting in a wide variety of archery games.  Judging by the bruises on Anna's arm, she is indeed an Iron Lady, if possibly a slow learner. 

Baronial announcement and selection process - polling closes Saturday 19th of March!

Submitted by William de Cameron on February 16, 2011 - 3:31pm

Emrys and Beatriz, Baron and Baroness of Ildhafn, send warm greetings to all their Barony!

We must sadly announce our intention to step down as your Baron and Baroness at the upcoming Royal Visit on the 30th of April. While we have very much enjoyed this role, and would like to have been able to continue for some years further, growing work commitments mean that we simply do not have the time and energy to give to what we would like - and what we believe you deserve - to the Barony.

Summer Break

Submitted by Ildhafn Seneschal on December 6, 2010 - 12:18pm

Between St Catherine's and Canterbury Faire (that is, for December and January) all our regular weekly practices and training sessions become a bit . . . irregular. Some of them will continue (though they might not be listed on the calendar), some take a break altogether, and some will focus on a particular item for a while.  

Our usual schedule will be in place again by mid February. 

If you would like to be part of any of the summer practices, please check with the person running it a few days in advance, to check that it's on that week:
