DRUIM DOINEANN SHEEP WAR RULES

OBJECT: PROTECT YOUR OWN FLOCK WHILE INCREASING ITS NUMBERS. THE TEAM WITH THE MOST SHEEP WINS.

THERE IS HONOR AMONG THIEVES IN THIS WAR! IT IS NOT A CONTACT SPORT. ANYONE USING FORCE OR VIOLENCE WILL BE DISQUALIFIED!

All teams start with one sheep only.

All participants will need a working flashlight.

NO CHILDRENALLOWED, FOR SAFETY REASONS.

YOUTHS (15-18) ONLY WITH PARENTAL SUPERVISION.

STAKE AND TETHER SHEEP IN CANP, IN PLAIN VIEW. (YOU MAY DRESS UP OR DISGUISE YOUR SHEEP, BUT YOU MAY NOT HIDE OR COMPLETELY COVER THEM UP.)

The correct response to a theft is catch a thief with a flashlight beam and cry “WOLF”, BEFORE THEY ARE ABLE TO LEAVE YOUR CAMP WITH IT!!

Once they have left your camp it is a legitimate theft. Players are bound by HONOR to stop and return the sheep if they are caught in the campsite.

NO CUTTING TEATHERS- you may untie them, or take them. It is not safe to be running in and out of crowded campsites with any exposed blade, and is also unfair.

NIGHT SECURITY MONITORS ARE ALLOWED TO PLAY-if they declare so from the start, but secret alliances are not allowed!

In plain view”– also means not above normal range of eye level (6ftmax). No hiding then on biffies or in trees, etc.

PLEASE LIMIT PLAY- to areas where other people are playing and take care not to invade or disturb those who are not playing.

SHEEP RUSTLING STOPS AT 6AM SUNDAY! Any attempt to steal sheep after 6am will result in being disqualified!

Sheep parts: Alas, they are wooden, and subject to loss of limbs…sheep parts only count as a sheep if you have the body and head.

 

Have fun and stay safe!!! (NO SHEEP WARS OUTSIDE THE NORMAL ENCAMPMENT AREAS. Be cautious about the forest and wildlife.)

THERE WILL BE ABSOLUTLY NO “SACRIFICIAL” SHEEP BURNING!!!!!

VIOLATORS WILL BE DISQUALIFIED!!!

 

Arts and Sciences:

Medieval Artifact of Duct Tape and Twine”

Obtain materials packet at gate. Use only the tape and twine supplied. Add up to 3 objects from nature, if you like. Create a replica of something used in the Middle Ages. Judging will be at the Gazebo before the Saturday feast.

“Best Backhanded Compliment”

(An insult disguised as a compliment)… Use your most eloquent and polite verbiage, to forsoothly express your dislike and disgust for an imaginary Scoundrel or Wicked Woman.  To be performed during the feast.

“Best Tall Tale/Incredible Alibi”: In olden times there were often cases when an accused would be forgiven, if their excuse were is fantastically entertaining and amazing as to move the audience to grant forgiveness, regardless of guilt. (Perhaps the theory was that a good storyteller is too valuable to waste.)

In this spirit, choose from one of the scenarios and tell the court why you should be excused for your offense!

OR: if you feel compelled to confess to a hitherto undiscovered crime, feel to do so. Stories to be performed during the feast.

 

Scenario #1: The Kings favorite cookies are missing and you were discovered asleep in the kitchen with crumbs on your face and tunic. EXPLAIN.

 

Scenario #2: Your master sent you on an errand three years ago, to bring back a famous soothsayer and you have returned alone. EXPLAIN.
