We've all heard the idiom: Beating a dead horse. We're accustomed to the idea of bashing something into our brains until the thought sticks, right? We know that repetition is the key to remembering, eh?!

Welllll, welcome to the wonderful Barony of Wealdsmere where we not only enjoy the idiom, we resemble it! That's right, you guessed it. Yakbert. Now, now let me stop you right there. I know what you're thinking.. "Yakbert isn't a horse, he's a yak." True. "He's also not dead. So we're beating a live yak? Oh, PETA is going to be all over this."

Ahem. We seem to have gotten off on the wrong hoof. Let me start over.

Have you been closely following the story of our dear friend, Yakbert? Were you there at last year's Celtic Revolt where the formidable foe, Brynjolf the Yak Thief, yak-napped Yakbert? Did you eagerly await news of his discovery and rescue? I'm sure you did. We all did. But then, did you hear tails of his appearance and then disappearance at the Barony of Sentinels' Keep's event, Hell's Gate? Oh yes. Once again our loyal companion was taken from us. And then at Raptor War Randy the Rampant Ram joined our story, or at least officially joined it. There's some nonsense about a horse and the ram, but we won't get into that now (mainly because we don't want PETA to get any wild hares).

Those of you who joined us at Border War know how bravely and fiercely the children fought to reclaim our yak, and reclaim him they did. They captured the Yak Thief, and he was forced to return Yakbert to us. And all were to rejoice in his return! But this is not where the tail ends. If you recall, there is another victim of this story, Randy.

Poor Randy the Rampant Ram. Randy made his first appearance at the very Celtic Revolt where Yakbert was yak-napped. His story is of love found and love lost. It's a thrilling tail of one ram's dream of frolicking through fields of daisies with his horse soulmate by his side... But it has manipulation and greed woven throughout. The truth must be told, but in order to do so the truth must first be found.

Join us in the beautiful Barony of Wealdsmere this Memorial Day Weekend as we finally discover the truth behind The Tale of Randy, and in doing so, the truth behind The Tale of Yakbert.
