In light of Love is in the Air and Valentine's Day, the Kingdom of Arathor would like to announce...

The Wedding Contest.

One eligible Highlands man or woman will volunteer to be the 'prize' in a competition of strength, wits, and charm, to be hold on the twenty-second.

Contestants will be expected to demonstrate their skills by:
-Reciting poetry or song
-Duelling with a weapon of their choice
-Chasing down and wrestling an oiled pig and/or drunk and confused Highlander
-Cooking a meal of that pig
-Demonstrating an understanding of basic farming, however they may do
-Craftsmanship of their choice.

So, come North, and find an evening of laughter. Not everything must be dark and harsh, and even the fiercest warrior needs to take the time to stop and remind himself of things worth living for. The celebration will conclude with a mock wedding, but who knows - perhaps a real connection might be made...

I do not enjoy adjusting my sleep patterns.
Never drink Arathi wine if you have a choice in the matter, but never refuse it from an Arathi host. For some unknown reason, they take great pride in the foul product of their nation, and are blind to its ability to make even the most hardened Azerothian drunk vomit in sheer disgust. And they are a violent people. Smile, bear it, and if possible discreetly spit it out.- Sir Galamnus, Gourmand Extraordinaire

Petty Court will be held on Saturday, as usual. Attend or don't.

On a related note, next week we're holding a market on Friday, and would love to see some of the broader server population at it.
The Highlanders feel no shame in the use of the bow or the throwing spear, even among the aristocracy. The superior size and strength of their ancestral enemies have lead to skills in ranged weapons being considered as worthy as those with the sword or spear.

The consummate Highlander warrior is thus expected to be skilled with bow, with spear, with javelin, with seax, and with sword. Elements of this cultural heritage can still be seen today in the South, especially in the pride taken in markmanship by the Wrynn family.

Everen, I agree with your statement towards Nigma. Very suitable ;)
Today's arrival is the Oxford History of the Laws of England, Volume 6: 1483 - 1588. If anyone would like to know something about the period, let me know and I'll be happy to check it for you.
Once again, it's flood time. I may be unavailable during the next few days.

Sadly, there was no mock marriage today.
Today is the petty court. As usual, 8PM in Stromgarde Keep. Come one, come all.
Nothing wrong with the people of Alterac. They're good, honest folk. I trade with them sometimes.

But those nobles... Slippery, is the word. Very, very slippery.
