Tournament of Succession V
20-22 October 2023
Borough of Cnoc Fraochán

The Borough of Cnoc Fraochán cordially invites any and all to attend Álendia’s Fifth Semi-Annual Tournament of Succession.

Come watch the struggle of those striving to become the heirs to the throne of Álendia. Revel in the pageantry of a grand tournament. Cheer on your favorite couple as they vie for glory on the field. Pay particular attention to those who have ruled before, as it is entirely possible the victor in this tournament will go on to become the first Duke of our Society.

Bring your bows and axes, for the grand tournament will not take all day. Test your mettle on the ranges in a variety of challenges.

Compete in the Academia Ludorum table games challenge and maybe win a prize.

Sample the beverages provided by the Honorable Company of Brewers, Vintners, and Meadhers.

Participate in the display of crafts, arts, and sciences from a variety of artisans and guild members.

Merchants welcome! Bring your own day shade and tables, as the merchant space is outdoors.

The site is the Lake Chautauqua Lutheran Center, 5013 NY HWY 430, Bemus Point, NY 14712, a 140-acre site overlooking the lake.
