First, I want to thank Regent Tesare for her hard work over the weekend. She compiled the relevant information and worked tirelessly with the judges. Thank you, judges and reeves for your work as well: Glenalth, Tiwaz, Nacoochee,Shayleigh, Styxx, Dakkenly, Ragnar, Kit, Marcil, and Shadydeal.
Regent Tesare has provided me with the following information for distribution on all lists.
Congratulations to Fu, Alucard, Shadow, and myself for qualifying for Hydras which automatically qualifies us for the respective offices we are seeking. Congratulations to Bjorn for qualifying to run for Champion.
During our Crown Qualifications, it was our honor to host Kingdom visitors who graced us with their presence: Randall, Francis, Lurker, Azwyn, and Cyrule.
There were 74 Arts & Sciences entries. From the look of the scores, there are certainly some talented members of our populace that will receive appropriate accolades and awards at our upcoming Masquerade Coronation on March 11th.
An evil, ancient, yellow dragon has traveled to Pegasus Valley from far away lands, and stolen the thunder from our skies, bringing us nothing but fires and droughts this year. You must enter the ancient vault and recover the lost pieces of a mystical sword, so that it may be reforged and used to slay the beast, and bring the rains back to our lands in time to save the crops for this year's harvest.
The quest game itself should take about two hours. Players will be divided into small teams, and will compete with each other for the sword pieces so they can reforge an ancient sword to kill the dragon with. The dragon may be killed without the sword, but it will return to life infinitely without using the sword. Refer to this map: http://www.pegasusvalley.com/node/1364 for game details.
The vault features many puzzles and challenges, including chasms, poisoned traps, and gas chambers, used to guard the sword pieces. Be prepared! Show up at 1 PM, the game will start shortly thereafter.
There will also be a barbecue at the park, with free food and drinks, though donations to the group are accepted. Come for the fun and food. After the game will be an althing.
No BOD meeting this month. Next month's BOD meeting will be on July 16, 2011. Tomorrow, we are supporting the park and the Comic Expo at the ABQ Convention Center.
Yours in Service,
Tomorrow is midreign! It's everybody's favorite apocalypse, and people will be competing versus zombies in a die-hard fight to the finish. We have multiple games, including a zombie scavenger scenario, your standard infection battle, and the "Zombie Run", a re-skinned edition of everybody's favorite Pillage Run competition. Additional themed games to follow at Active Imagination, where players will combat the zombie horde inside a doomed fortress(we are playing in an empty mall!). Feast afterwards in one of AI's theater bays; get your favorite food a la carte for good prices, and join our Duke as he celebrates Pegasus Valley surviving the end of days.
Pegasus Valley's new sister chapter within the Amtgard Sister Park project is the Duchy of the Frost Lands, in the Kingdom of the Rising Winds(located mundanely in Oshkosh, Wisconsin). The Amtgard Sister Park project is intended to help build strong inter-park relationships and promote growth between established Amtgard chapters. As part of the project, we will be obligated to send a care package to the Frost Lands before September, full of neat items from Pegasus Valley. If you have ideas or donations, you can contact me(Lurker), as I am representing our park in this project.
I think we're going to do a great job, and I am excited to see what the Duchy of the Frost Lands sends us!
Greetings to the people of Pegasus Valley, Dragonspine, Lost Souls, Savage Highlands and all surrounding lands.
The date of our mid reign is fast approaching us. The monarchy of PV would like to invite everyone to join us on the 4th of June for fun, festivities, and feasting. I am sure that our creative and imaginative Champion has some great battle game scenarios running through his head. We are going to try something a little different for feast. Instead of the usual feast halls, churches or the park for feast and court. We are going to be trying out a new venue, Active Imagination. Active Imagination or AI as you will hear us refer to it, is a local gaming store and arena. It is an old movie theater that has been converted to a gaming store. With the theaters as private areas. They will be catering the event so we will need to know as soon as possible if you will be attending. So please RSVP to me as soon as you can so we can get the numbers together. Also if you are wanting to attend but need somewhere to stay I am sure that we will be able to find crash space for everyone.
Thank you for your time,
Unto the populous of the Duchy of Pegasus Valley and to all comers,
I have set up a demo and a booth for us at the Albuquerque comic expo.

(Another long post. Skip to the bottom for this week's battlegames, if you hate stories. Stay tuned to this list(and other sources) for clues for games in weeks to come. If you like talking in-character and all that good stuff, feel free to do your thing as the story reveals itself. Story and games written and produced by The Expedition)
As the cold winter draws to its end, our noble Duchy saw a significant boon for its local economy. As pockets are lined with coins, once again people have begun to charter adventuring parties for the purposes of going out into the countryside and returning with valuables looted from forgotten dungeons, a tradition long-enduring in Pegasus Valley. Often these adventures are filled with magic, and mystery, sometimes monsters, perhaps maidens even.
