Seasonal Pot and Pirate Surprise!

RMEventCoverage
Despite the pirate occupation of Eyr, the Salty Swallow held its Festival of the Seasonal Pot. Throughout the months of February through March, heavy fog lifts from the canopies and creatures of the jungle call out for a mate. These creatures are left alone to do their nature, but in their place for hunting are creatures already abundant to the jungle floor and the Kuvari river.

Hunters, gatherers, and fishermen met to compete for bragging rights over who was the best provider in Eyr. A decent showing was made by the competitors, who were cheered on by this event’s first observing crowd.

Here are the winners of this season’s contest in no particular order:

Fishing and Hunting

Aquatic elf sisters gave quite a show in these two events, but from them all Runa (aiyana.dover) was deemed the champion.

Gathering

With having an advantage in her home territory, Khanya Silongo (kristi.susanowa) came out on top of this trial.

After the winners were declared, the harvest goods were carried to Stormstead Village, where all who attended helped prepare the feast. Everyone was in for a surprise, when a motley crew of pirates crashed the party. Festival goers quickly took to their arms, until one pirate called for parley.

This mutinous crew saw themselves on the losing side of battle and were ready to quit their campaign against Eyr.  Weapons were dropped and in exchange for their freedom information was negotiated by Stormstead’s chancellor, Wanton Aime. In the day following the festival, the pirate ship would moor upon the sandy shore to receive loot pillaged from Eyr. In the belly of the ship was their last accounted hostage, Ornith of the Sage Advice. Their final word came with a warning regarding their crew’s captain, whose power was feared among the crew.

Before departing from Eyr to their destination of Hazuz, the pirates were offered to share in the seasonal pot. With noted anxiety, they turned down the offer, citing their entire party were vegetarians.

Brumous Season Ends with “Festival of the Seasonal Pot”

Hunting near the Cascades

Brumous season rolls to a close and the Salty Swallow/Hand Crafted co- hosted their usual “Festival of the Seasonal Pot” celebration.  This year’s event winner was “Boomer,” a dragonet companion to Astrid.  The fae woman herself voiced no interest or even knowledge of the contest but the dragonet seemed quite keen upon fetching whatever was asked.  Boomer showed remarkable skill and good temper flying about  to the amusement and sometimes irritation of his owner.

The event began with a fishing tourney on the docks lead by Blanche.  The lady herself might lack fishing skills but more than made up for it in enthusiasm.  Boomer also pulled his own weight and even more – lifting fish from the river that were as big – if not bigger – than the dragonet.  Our Halfling contestant fared well even though professing that he

had never before used a fishing rod before.   Once the fishing line was removed from his hair he did quite well.  Wanton Aime added his fishing skills to the fray, the stoic satyr himself doing rather well.

The second event was the gathering contest and a variety of forageables were brought in for consumption.  Items ranging from mushrooms, fiddlehead ferns, vanilla pods, grapefruit and even pineapple.  Mizu and Bert joined in at this juncture adding their efforts to the gathering.

The last contest before the feast was he hunting competition and again – Boomer outshone those gathered by bringing down a Mountain Boar, with a little magical assistance from Astrid when the animal proved too large for the dragonet.  The game animals were varied but all-in-all the group returned triumphant to the Salty Swallow.

The end of the brumous season marks the beginning of the breeding season.  Many arrived at the feast to commemorate and celebrate the past several months and partake of the ‘varmint’ stew as the delicacy was dubbed.  It was noted that the gathering also proved a somber tribute toward Wesley Holt – with several of the fish caught at today’s event left at the memorial site.  May he rest in peace and May Stormstead find an end to the tiger menace.
