12-20-86, The Barony of Darkwater
Domesday Report – Barony of Darkwater
We had, in the first half of the year a bumper season of demos for the Orange and Seminole County school system. From January to June we held 12 demos for the school system. Along with the school demos we held a very large demo for the Orlando Artsfest ’86. This is the second time we have attended this function and our part has gotten even bigger. For 1987 we are hoping to have a place set up for us on our own, and we intend to really show the city what we are about. We held five events in ’86; Swamp Stomp, Trident Tourney, The Village Faire, a Fighters Collegium, and the annual Wassailing Revel. All of these events were well attended.
To be honest however, life here is not all a bed of roses. Our fighters have for some unknown reason have faded into the woodwork. We boasted a company of 20 fighters at the war in February of ’86, and now at the end of the year we have a hard time finding more than 6. We still haven’t figured it out.
Darkwater has always had a strong core group who have remained active in the arts and sciences. Well, at the end of this year it seems that this group has gotten much busier in their mundane lives, and thus the time that they have had to devote to the society and projects therein, has been reduced. Unfortunately this can not be helped. However (I love that word) we seem to have a large number, which is growing rapidly, of people that do not really worry to much about reporting their activities. This group has been quite active in their endeavors, it is just that they refuse to commit this information to paper. This can not be helped either, but at least we know, although it can not be proven on paper, that the Barony is not as dead as our arts and science reports seem to show.
We have grown incredibly in one are that before I always found this barony quite distressingly deficient in. Through the efforts of some people who before ’86 had been quite apathetic (in appearance) and generally inactive, we now have a waiting list for people who want the chance to autocrat their own events. We are giving them their chances as fast as we are able, however this is not a fast process. But, we have gotten a number of them quite interested in doing kingdom level events and we are presently working up some bids for ’87.
Through the past year we have done quite well in our coffers, having a couple of profitable events, and only one real loss to speak of. In light of this (a standing balance of over $1,000.00) we are planning a couple of purchases/projects to make life a little easier in our barony. We are building a trailer in which to haul our baronial regalia (no more asking “Who’s got some extra room?”) and as a group project we are trying to put together an enclosure (rope and post fence with frame arch entranceways) for when we camp as a group at events. This is a project that I am hoping will get the group together at one time with essentially the same purpose in mind. This may help towards ending some of the factioning that we have had such a problem with as of late.
We have had a large amount of growth in the guilds this past year. The costumers have reorganized themselves and are trying to change the generally expected image of themselves. The music guild has been getting stronger in their capabilities. We added not a guild but a semi-organized group this past year with a goal of promoting the performing arts. They have had a little trouble getting organized, and even more really getting started, the ideas are spectacular and the effort is greatly appreciated. We started another new guild this year and unlike most new guilds (which seem to have a hard time getting off the drawing board) this one has taken off like a rocket. The village guild, which is based in the domestic sciences but includes every science which does not yet have a functioning guild within the barony, has proven to be an outstanding idea. Through the village guild, and the classes that they have given (more than 20 over the slow time in the summer) we have gotten many people interested in the things that otherwise are hardly ever demonstrated, seen, or taught outside of art/sci’s. This has help our people’s personal growth, and many people’s view of the society immensely. At the end of 1986, the Barony has 43 paid members, 37 sustaining, 5 family and 1 associate. This ends my domesday report for the Barony of Darkwater for the year 1986. Alasdair Francis MacDhomhnuill, Seneschal.
Domesday Report – Shire of the Ruins
Once again, I’m please to report that the shire is alive and reasonably well. Our current membership is approximately 12 sustaining members. Several of our people have lapsed, but swear that they will renew as soon as they can afford to. Also, we have several new prospects, so I’m hoping for an increase soon.
We have held only one school demo this year; however, we participated in several Wyvernwood and Shadowsea demos. We held one revel in March. Our best demo ever occurred on 12-22 when we appeared for about an hour on a talk show on V-32, the Lakeland music video station.
This year we hosted two events, TMT and the Ruins Revel. TMT had the largest turnout in Trimarian history, and also had the first banishment in Trimaris. The Ruins Revel and Hero of the Ruins List was the largest ever, had the first ever Trimiarian Court of Inquiry, and had the highest percent of people attending without paying that I have ever seen. My treasurer still hasn’t told me the total amount lost, but it doesn’t look good.
For next year, we are doing another Ruins Revel, and perhaps one or two larger events, possibly in conjunction with another group. We also plan to do more school demos and hopefully another TV demo with V-32. Lord Kragon Darkvale, Seneschal
