The Festival of the Silver Serpent is an event where you can indulge in a wide variety of activities. From crafting and fortune telling, to games of skill and chance, to the finest libations and food to tempt any Avatar, you will have much to engage your mind and body. As with any good Festival, there will be a few surprises.
Every Avatar knows that their inner spirit can be read by those with the ancient knowledge. This is your chance to find your own destiny with a personal fortune reading by Dame Lori.
Ranged Combat Tournament
Avatars will be able to compete in multiple ranged combat games of skill, including archery, axe throwing, and dagger throwing. Each event will be an opportunity to compete for a prize, or for those not adept at ranged combat, a chance to wager on the outcomes.
As with each Festival, Mastersmith Fergus Ironhand will be teaching guests a new smithing technique and tool to build.
Take a tour through the Highlands and Emerald Isle as you sample some of the finest spirits of the lands. Offerings will cover a wide range of Scotch and Whiskey from different geographies and ages. Experience the subtle and not-so-subtle differences as the Inn of the Unseen Order opens its private reserve for you.
Hearth of Britannia Culinary Experiences
The proprietor of the Hearth of Britannia will again lead a culinary adventure at the Festival. This year’s sampling will introduce guests to the world of washoku (Japanese food) including sashimi (raw fish), ocha (Japanese tea), and sake (rice wine). Participants will learn the about different types of fish, their attributes, and how to select, prepare, and serve them. Along the way, popular Japanese teas will be introduced for tasting including preparation instructions, history, and pairing suggestions. Finally, we will enter the world of sake, trying a broad selection of filtered and unfiltered sakes served cold, warm, and hot. For those who do not eat fish, non-meat compliments will be included to pair with the tea and sake.
