As is usual for this time of year the court is buzzing with anticipation as King Dragor and his advisors prepare to announce the events and festivals occurring at this year’s Nirath Day celebrations.

Ever since Andragoras the Liberator united our fair kingdom it has been customary to celebrate the concept of Nirath every year around the 18th day of the fifth month. This year it has been announced by our most noble king that the celebrations will be held on the 20th of the fifth month in order to allow the maximum number of his subjects to enjoy the holiday. Along with the usual local parades and festivals, the Royal Court is holding a series of events both on the 18th and the 20th in order to find the most worthy artists, strategists and warriors in Nirath.

The winners of each event will be granted a crown or wreath of victory and shall be rewarded for their victory. The events are The Writer’s Wreath, The Bard’s Crown, The Artist’s Wreath, The Strategist’s Crown and the Warrior’s Wreath. The individual rules for each competition will be announced in the coming week but for now, the Royal Herald is pleased to announce which member of the Royal Court will be running each event and the deadlines for entry.
