for a day of merriment and hilarity to shake off the winter
There will be heavy fighting and a rapier tourney. There will

At the Canton of Silverhart's
Feast of Fools, up is down and down is up. White is black and black
is white. Hot is cold and cold is hot. Peers are serfs and lords
and ladies mis-rule!
Oh, that's right. The foolages. Non-peers get to bid on a peer to
be their fool or jester for a couple of hours. Need some
entertainment? Ask your fool to sing. Are things around you too
serious? Ask your fool to dance. All forms of silly entertainment
Several local peers have offered their time for this lighthearted
fundraiser for the Canton of Silverhart. So save your pennies to
bid to hear Dame Richenda croak like a frog, watch Master Ulrik
twirl like a ballerina, ask Dame Juliana to be your 3-year-old's
pet dragon, or come up with your very own entertainment for Baron
Lars to perform. If other peers are interested in offering their
time for the fundraiser, please contact Dame Richenda firstname.lastname@example.org
