Masquerade on Saint Razhden’s Day

History, Imagination, Faith!

The Societas is pleased to host the First Annual Masquerade on Saint Razhden’s Day, with a theme set during the early decades of the Udorian Wars during the Amarr and Khanid conquest of Ves-Udor (circa 20185 AD). This was a time before gunpowder and complex machines. A time of swords and shields and sailing vessels. A time of Paladins and Knights. Saint Razhden was a warrior saint, with both piety and martial prowess.

Guests are asked to wear period garb, whether of the Empire or their own culture’s equivalent periods. As an example, here is Lunarisse’s Ceremonial Armor, the design of which dates back to that period. It is also traditional for the wearer’s eyes and/or face to be masked. As explained in cultural texts about the Amarr

“Outside of ritual, masks are also used as a form of Amarrian heraldry. These masks, decorated with specific colors and iconography according to a strict set of rules, represent Amarrian noble houses, and they are frequently worn at high society affairs.”

With the blessing and permission of the Lady Abbess Sisyriana Kahoud, the event will be held at the Ballroom of the Manu Dei e Tet Rimon Castle on the grounds of the Finishing School of the Little Sisters of the Most Blessed Sword on Hama II. Shuttles will be provided to and from the facility and the local Planetary Customs Office in orbit.

Are bladed weapons allowed to be carried and do said blades need to be appropriately dulled or blunted if so?

I ask only so that I may shape any pieces I may forge appropriately.

And though I am quite busy of late, I am quite skilled in a variety of things in metalworking, from jewelry to weapons. I am reachable by Evemail if you wish to work with me on a particular piece for the event.

Yes to both questions.

Are we on the red list ?

Of course you are.

How about us? Though I might have to come in Matari tribal paints as I doubt the Triglavians even remember their medieval period.

I would expect that traitors who have defected to the Triglavians are certainly on the red list.
