The sound of an arrow flying through the air; the quiet pad of a hunters feet along the forest floor; the sweet smell of venison stewing...

Aye, it is Archer's Day, the 3rd of Erastus. The holy days of Erastil are simple, but still they can bring together wayward son and distant father or a caring mother and an innocent child in sharing the simple pleasures of life.

Hunters and the hungry will gather together to feast, while the youth will test their bowmanship and hunting skills.

Who will prove to be the sharpest eye, the steadiest hand... who will the Grand Hunter of Archer's Day?

(OOC: What sort of events will your characters be organizing? Of course there is an archery tournament and perhaps axe-throwing, but what other activities will you be organizing. With rumors of trolls, folk look to your characters for guidance, hope, and booze.)

For this year's Dead-Eye Days, the Baron will conduct a summer Biathlon event: horse-mounted participants ride a circuit, timed for best rate, with several way-points that have targets to hit with bow and arrow. Superior archery can make up for slower time on the course. Top two riders can have their mounts war-trained by a professional trainer...
