Harvest Festival Barker!
Posted: Sun Oct 14, 2012 11:53 am
The door to the Inn bursts open to admit a rosey-cheeked youth clad in garnet red and gold brocade finery, trimmed in gold tassles and other such gaudy accoutrements. The young man tips the brim of a red velvet tricorn back with one hand, producing a fancy scroll case with the other, which he subsequently opens and unrolls, making his way to the bar to present himself before the Inn's patrons as a whole. Clearing his throat, he announces, "Hear ye! Hear ye! One and all in the King's Inn! The yearly Harvest Festival and Fair will be held from Sundas, the 28th day of Frost Fall to Loredas, the 3rd of Sun's Dusk! Events will include a tournament of arms, a masquerade ball, and will conclude on Sundas, the 4th of Sun's Dusk with the Brakkerat celebration! Merchants from all over Transdarania and local environs will be bringing their best wares to display and sell, and there will be feasting and drink for all!" With that, the barker rolls his scroll back up again, producing a few paper flyers from a satchel slung over his shoulder, and then proceeds to distribute the flyers over various tables in the Inn, tacking them to walls, and finally, leaving a few atop the bar before he departs. Elsewhere within the city, other barkers making the same announcement can be heard. Dates for the muns are 28 October to 4 November, Sunday to Sunday! More information will be posted to the forums, so stay tuned!
