Chaucer's Tavern

Come ye, one and all, to the Tavern of Chaucer, wherein we shall stand you food and drink until you will fit no more, and show you all the fat partridges and bream and pike you might dream of.

Fighters and dancers ahoy! Following last year’s successful introduction of the new fighting event in the Kingdom’s Calendar, Dun In Mara once more invites you to a weekend of the arts of war and the arts of peace, supported by the shire’s usual hearty hospitality. This year, we are particularly proud and pleased to welcome Sir Donngal de Buchanan and Mistress Iona Putnika, who are travelling from all the way from the Kingdom of Atenveldt (Arizona, USA) to teach at this event.

At our scribal themed A&S meetup tonight, Anneleyn practiced Gothic Littera Bastarda based on the Marc Drogin book. Delighted shouts of “the g looks a g” could be heard. Jasper tried out the basic calligraphy set he got and then tested Windsor & Newton ink and decided to get himself some at Evans Art Supplies off Capel St. Alays started doing the illumination of a Manesse initial on a blank scroll, which she had traced a while back. And Duncan worked diligently on a secret project that we are not allowed to talk about. There might also have been tea.
