This will be another lavish, three-day, mystical, holiday-themed mini-camp in the Torc Amret! Think Gawaine and the Green Knight meets Krampus meets the Mari Lwyd meets the tradition of the mummers, wassailers and revelers, all within the excitement of several Adventures in Cardboard-style hunting and battle games in the winter evenings! After each game there will be songs and stories for the player's entertainment.

All across the Realm, and particularly in old Mabon, Yuletide tradition demands the hosting of rambunctious hunting games between convivial villages. As the dying year is supplanted by the new one, hunters compete for New Year's fortune as they stalk the Wild Stag of the Wood.  However, after sunset, these activities rouse a beast out of its slumber each night, and the hunters become the hunted! Those who solve a desperate group quest, before too much time passes, may avoid or overcome the beast for a special Yuletide blessing, while those who lag behind may not live to see the New Year!

Joyous, mystical and hopefully terrifying: build arms and armor by the hearth in the short light of afternoon! Hear the horns call you out to the hunt in the dying light! And after sunset... beware the beast!
