Pennsic Independent

The Pennsic Independent, a partner site to that focuses extensively on the Pennsic War. Pennsic Independent is published on site (in hardcopy) each year during the War, and it is published periodically online during the rest of the year.

Court Reports

Even before the first formal courts of the war were held, several kingdoms elevated members of their populace or already had sent prople out of peerage vigils.

The first award of the war came during the first week, at Viscount Haakon’s bardic circle when King Malcolm and Queen Tessa ofÆthelmearc made Haakon’s brother, Boris Dragonslayer, a baron of their court.

Earlier this week, prior to the Rapier Town Battle, the Æthelmearc royalty elevated Illadore de Bedegrayne of the Barony Marche of the Debatable Lands, to the Order of the White Scarf.

King Felix and Queen Madeleina of the Midrealm sent three people on Pelican vigil prior to their Thursday court.

According to HRM Malcolm of Æthelmearc, his Kingdom had secured aid from Atlantia, Clovenshield, Black Talon and others to help defend the castle.

Mayor: Chirurgeons overstepping certifications reason for change at Point

By Peregrine Fairchylde

The questions were pointed and sometimes angry, and the responses did not always satisfy the crowd, but tempers remained largely in check during an hour-long public meeting held Wednesday afternoon by Pennsic 35 Mayor Baroness Brise Sanguin, OP, outside the First Aid Pavilion, formerly Chirurgeon’s Point.

And in response to the foremost question on the minds of many there– exactly what had transpired to cause the mayor to turn over operation of the Point to NorthWest EMS – though Mayor Brise remained unspecific on the details, citing privacy issues, she did say that some chirurgeons at the War had “exceeded [the] authority” of their mundane first aid certifications, which had given her “grave concerns” and led to the action.

“We had gotten to the point it wasn’t one or two people,” she said.
