Friday – Monday


There is the opportunity to teach classes at the Endewearde Hunt. Teachers please use the Teacher Sign Up Form before Saturday, September 30th. Contact Mistress Agatha Wanderer with any questions.


Calling all archery marshals and MiTs! Please sign up for you archery shifts for the Hunt! Lady Admiranda Howard would like to see as many shifts covered before the event as possible, so that she can fill in holes where needed. This way, no one spends all their time marshaling, and no time shooting!

Please consider signing up for two shifts if you can. There will be two woods walks this year.

Also, please note that there are no shifts available on Sunday from 11-12, and after 2. The range will close at these times for Thrown Weapons Champions and Archery Champions respectively.

The cooler mornings, ripening harvest, and hints of red in leaves is signaling a change of seasons – summer into autumn. With autumn comes The Hunt. There are many wonderful things to do and learn, and many fine people to meet and renew conversations with at this event. I am asking for some of you to gift others with your smiling face and welcoming words – please sign up for a chance to sit troll, and share this gift with friends, old and new!

Barony of Endewearde Charter Discussion: Wednesday, September 13, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Image of the Barony of Endewearde heraldic device.There will be an informal meeting to discuss those areas of the Endewearde charter which need to be updated to be in compliance with Society and East Kingdom law as well as to reflect the policies of the Barony of Endewearde. All are welcome to attend.

The meeting will be held at the home of Lord Finán mac Bressail, Seneschal of Endewearde, in Bangor, Maine and will start at 7:00 pm.

Lord Finán has posted a list of proposed topics on the Endewearde facebook group for this meeting as follows:

1. The glossary needs to have more complete definitions. Currently it has explanations of some acronyms, but very few actual definitions.

2. I’d like to have a discussion about the use of the term “citizen” as opposed to “resident”. Kingdom uses one, and not the other.

3. Communication, currently the charter still references the Yahoo! group as the “official” channel for communications, and it should probably be talking about the website or the official email addresses or something.

4. Terms of the Baronial Seat, these are dictated to us by Kingdom, and we need to tighten up some discrepancies.

5. We need to clarify the terms of a Vote of Confidence. Is it simple majority? 2 thirds? Doesn’t need much, but it should be clear.

6. Some parts of Section A.6.a seem kind of “advicey”, which can make for sloppy law. Laws need to be clear in order to be enforceable, so there’s some clean up that needs to be done here.

7. The refund policy, we would like to get something in writing, though this might be able to go into something like an “Exchequers Handbook”.

8. Speaking of “Handbooks”, should we have places where policy gets written down, that don’t need to be ratified by the populace? Should we have a set of laws governing all aspects of X, or should there be wording in the Charter to the effect of “and will execute the duties of the office as per the X Handbook”? Policy is easier to change than law?

9. Exchequer term limits, we need these to line up with Kingdom.

You can download a pdf of the Barony of Endewearde Charter (March 3, 2016).

If anyone has any other ideas, please send me a private message either through facebook or by email to seneschal@endewearde.eastkingdom.org and I will consider adding it to this list.

Once again, the Barony of Endewearde will be hosting a rousing and raucous festival of armored combat and merriment. At the end of the day, the Endewearde armored combatant who stands victorious will be named Endewearde’s newest Champion of Armored Combat. Endewearde’s current armored champion, The Honorable Lord Gruffydd Abernathy, will oversee the challenges of the day and provide fun for the combatants as well as those in the galleries.

COMBATANTS: During the tournament, a tourney tree will be used. Armored combatants will need to have a wooden shield plaque on which a representation of your arms must be painted. Blank shields will be provided ahead of time as needed.

The Honorable Lord Gruffydd Abernethy has the following announcement:

Fighters: If you plan to compete I will need you to get in contact with me by Sunday the 10th [September] although the sooner the better as I hear we have some folks who want to make things to cheer on their favorite fighters with. I will need to know who you have as your herald and your arms/ colors wouldn’t hurt. All are welcome to compete and there will be a prize for the best fighter, though the champion will be chosen from the pool of fighters from Endewearde.

Learn more about this event by visiting the Endewearde Baronial Armored Combat Championship webpage on the Barony of Endewearde website.
