|A Cause for Celebration!
Annakol Gazette - Despite the troubles to the north, their Majesties announced that the Annakolia Festival will take place as planned. Baron Talanque vowed that the Annakol City Guard would keep the peace and monitor security.
"We have every reason to celebrate and bring hope to our people." Queen Fina said.
A list of the preliminary schedule of events includes: Queen's Champion Tourney,
Baron Talanque's Archery & Missile Weapon Match, Annakolia Street Festival,
Bardic Competition, Hillbert's Famous Tours, and Golem War. The city and countryside is a buzz with anticipation.
"Them northern long shank soldiers swaggerin 'round ain't much good." A halfling at the Feisty Chicken Tavern said. "Time we had somethin to smile 'bout."
"We're already putting in orders for extra ale and cheese," said Fiona Diaz, co-proprietor of the Feisty Chicken. "This will be good for business." Her co-owner and husband, Lino Diaz expressed some concern that deliveries would get through.
"The usurper Emrys doesn't want this to succeed." Baron Talanque said. "But we won't let his patrols get in our way."
Tharbad offered to hold the Queen's Champion Tourney in the city arena. The city remains neutral in the political upheavals in Annakol. The Mage Council officials could not be reached for comment.
"Benthar will bless and protect the people of Annakolia." The priest of Benthar said. "A festival is just what we need to unite us and overcome these tribulations."
