Up in what was the Principality of Artemisia (now the Kingdom

of Artemesia) they use to hold combined Peer circles quite

often. Usually during the reigns of Brian and Anna.


Yes, they were huge, and in my opinion rather unwieldy.  I

don't know if they still do them up there or not.  Just

another anthropological difference between Kingdoms  :)

I'm having this Artemisian moment here....

envisioning these bibs with a border of white fur/cloth for chiv, yellow

fur/cloth for pels, and green fur/cloth for laurels. <g>

(for the vast majority of you out there who are NOT from my home

kingdom, I'm referring to an odd bit in our Sumptuary Customs that

details who can wear what kind of display of arms on their

cloaks/mantles. It says that the respective orders above are allowed

these special cloaks with those special borders...the sheer idea of

green fur made me want to just shudder.  or barf.  or both.)

There's an annual torchlight great sword tourney at Uprising every June.


  Uprising, for you non-Artemisians, is the largest annual event in the

kingdom. The tourney always seems to run (at least in my memory) as a

fundraiser--individual fighters are auctioned off, and the winner gets a

prize. Enormous fun to watch, especially when you've got a couple of

really talented people in the eric.


We have fire restrictions to deal with as well, but the degree of

stricture varies from year to year, and generally is most stringent

later in the summer (mid-July onwards through early fall).


--maire, who could actually *see* the hills surrounding town tonight!

and breathe without inhaling wood smoke! Ah, the joy! ;-D (I'm only

partly kidding...it's been pretty smoky here this summer, although not

as bad as 2000 or 2003.)
