Spring has come to Aethelmearc, and the southern lands welcome the new
season with an explosion of new green leaves and bright yellow and vibrant
purple flowers. With such regal colors, thoughts drift towards Aethelmearc's
need for Heirs.
To celebrate the rebirth of Spring, the Barony of Blackstone Mountain will
host this year's Spring Crown Tournament, May 14, 2011. The event site is

9pm will be pressed into hard labour. The site will remain open to the
public, so bring out your best pomp and circumstance.
