Pennsic War XXXVII
Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania
August, 2008

Camille, Vincent and Max prepare for battle*

Lady Mickel & I pilgrimaged to distant Pennsic with Lord Alexandre, Lady Ninian, and Lady Camille, all from Haus Wanderstamm, and Lord Vincent. There we were welcomed to set our tents inside the Gamol Gat encampment; friends from Endewearde, North of Malagentia. Fencing, shopping, arts & sciences classes, visiting, making music, attending performances, dancing, more shopping; we had a wonderful time by every measure!

Our thanks belong to the folk of Gamol Gat, for being fabulous hosts and great neighbors. Now that we know how fun and relaxing Pennsic can be, we might come more often!

Overheard at Pennsic XXXVII:

"Better safe than soggy!"

"Not now, I'm trying to drive a pig."

"Am I dressed foppish enough to join you?"

"But your persona is single!"

Heard a good one?
Send it in!
