We're looking for some donations to use as prizes/loot/merchandise.
Anything that we don't get donations for ends up coming out of the
budget. We're looking for items for a few purposes...
1. Prizes for various games.
Looking for new/unused items to award for prizes.
2. Loots for monsters.
Plastic jewelry, pouches full of rocks, plastic gems, etc..
3. Merchandise for the store.
We're trying something this year. We will have an NPC run general
store that will be buying and selling mundane and quest items during
the event for Pegasus Valley coins. We need some stock to get it
started. We're looking at stocking a small amount of used garb, garb
accessories, golf clubs, weapons, rape traps, extra tent pegs, and
other odds and ends that might be needed at the event.
Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to keep your
Harvest War planning is going well, except I'm slightly behind on sending out the June advertising e-mail due to being tired from work and typing on a tiny keyboard. The flyer for Rakis isn't done quite yet, but I have arts for it.
We've added a new vendor to the event...
Our store is called Mystik Wonders, and we sell garb ( from fighting tunics to court garb) that I make. My husband does woodwork, including staffs, walking sticks, magic wands, and hair sticks. He also does some wire-wrapped jewelry. We carry a line of fox tails and faces, and sell tee shirts from The Mountain and Skulbone. My son makes boffers, and other Amtgard legal weapons. Our most recent addition is Mana Energy Potions ( a real plus for long battles).
Thanks again, and we look forward to seeing you Labor Day Weekend!

Don't Dream It, Be It!!!
We've added a new activity to the event...
Most Bitchin' Chair Contest
Make/modify/enhance/destroy a chair and have it judged by a panel of drunks. Only one chair will be declared the "Most Bitchin'".
The experiments are coming along nicely, with only a few entertaining failures. In a matter of months everything should be in place for the final stage.
Also, that itching in my eye-socket has finally stopped. Turns out there was a beetle living in there. Weird.
I need some, are you interested?
I'm opening up for custom weapon orders from the public. Send me a design of how you want a weapon to look, and I can make it for you, with as much detail as necessary. Swords are the easiest to make, but really any flat-bladed weapon(even throwing weapons) can be done using this method. Those of you who have seen my new(and unfinished) Master Sword(not the old gold one) or my Hylian Shield will know vaguely what the result looks like.
Some things that can be done(not all-inclusive; if you have an idea that is not here, let me know):
*The Hamon on a katana or other similar weapon(that wavy line that comes from the difference in hardness from the blade and back of the weapon metals)
*Runes or engravings into the blade of a sword or other weapon
*Weapons or shields that display multiple colors or some form of heraldry, such as a symbol or pattern.
*Gems, protrusions, or any sort of ornaments set into the weapon in for the sake of decoration.
