Our once-great land is threatened.
I have learned of a great danger, stronger than steel or fire. The vampiric infestation has allowed our crops to rot, as we stopped tilling the earth and tilled the veins of humanity instead. This winter will be harsh, and we must be strong. Stronger than we have ever been. In light of the cold and the invasions, we cannot afford to let our commoners go unclothed. The monsoons will turn to autumn and snow, and our people will die in the saddest of ways, hungry and cold. We cannot allow this threat to our Duchy to continue.
When winter comes, I will sound the bells of feasting. No loyal citizen shall go hungry, and there will be merriment and renewal in the spring time. And rest assured, I will put clothes on those who have none.
I pledge to do everything in my power to save Pegasus Valley and help it grow. The first step is to declare my intention to run for Regent of Pegasus Valley.
By giving me your vote, we can make Pegasus Valley flourish in the arts and prosper. They shall sing of our glories long.
Long live the Valley,

Will you be prepared?
Hard days are ahead for Pegasus Valley.
Due to the recent vampirism outbreak, the usual patrols and purges of the neighboring goblin, orc, and giant tribes have been suspended. These monsters have been unchecked and wreaking havoc on the outskirts our great Duchy for months now. The losses of both people and territory have been enormous. We will shortly be overrun if this is allowed to continue.
Just this morning I was speaking with a child that lost both of his parents to an attack. Before I could find the identity of the attackers the poor child succumbed to his injuries. These monsters must be put down before more atrocities take place.
I will raise a new militia to augment our faltering patrols and personally lead our brave citizens to victory. Equipment will be provided to outfit our citizens without the means to equip themselves. I will open up the Pegasus Valley armory and distribute the wealth of magic items and locked away magics that have gone unused in this time of great need.
I pledge to do everything in my power to rid Pegasus Valley of these dangerous creatures. The first step is to declare my intention to run for Duke of Pegasus Valley.
By giving me your vote, we can make Pegasus Valley a safe place to live once again.
Be weary, there are dangers everywhere,
Duke Glenalth Woodwalke, Defender of the Black Dragon and Knight of the Flame

Our bi-annual Dragonmaster is taking place at Taylor Park.
A PDF of the following rules is available here: http://www.pegasusvalley.com/sites/default/files/Dragonmaster52014.pdf
Signins for entries start around noon. Judging will start at 1pm. Signins will close at 2pm. Results will be announced at midreign the following week..
For each entry you must fill out an index card describing your entry and any information that judges will need to judge it properly. A few examples would be an item being entirely hand sewn, made entirely with primitive materials, or a tunic that you bought that is only being judged for the embroidery that you added to it.
Each entry will be judged on a scale of 1 to 5. The final score of each entry will be the average of each judge's decision with the highest and lowest scores weighted lower.
Each person’s total score will be the sum of their best scoring items in each event. The highest score shall be the Dragonmaster for the reign.
As I yelled about at the park today...
There will be an Arts & Sciences tournament on Saturday, April 5th.
The rules are...
1. Only one item may be entered by each participant.
2. You must not have started making the item as of 5pm March 29th.
3. The item must be Amtgard related in some way.
4. The item will be judged only on it's outward appearance.
5. Judging will be held after the first battlegame of the day.
Best 5 items will win coins.
Since these items are only being judged on their appearance, construction methods/techniques are not being scrutinized. That means if you want to make something that is held together with chewing gum, you can.
