The Completely retooled from the ground up JOUST is today’s big event as we say goodbye to all things Medieval!
Prior to the Joust will be the Best in Show & Parade as folken’ trot their mounts out, decked out in custom horse attire & armor or whatever the current Medieval Horse finery of the day is…. 8)
There will be Prizes & Glory (as the sign clearly says!) and afterwards… The start of the JOUST… STAB STAB STAB STAB ARGHHHH!!!
Seriously, I don’t know who thought riding a horse in full armor with a long A$$ Stabby Stick was a good idea but HEY.. WE ARE ALL ABOUT THE JOUST & JOUSTING GLORY!!!
Immediately after the Joust will be a live musical performance by Keeba Tammas at the Jousting grounds stage as we once again bring our Medieval-Fest to a close….

THE RAGLAN SHIRE ART WALK™ – Bringing you Art on a HEDGE since 2007
Hey Tiny Fashionistas!
We’re about to order the fantabulous, new limited edition t-shirts for the folks who donated to our Jazz Paws Kickstarter campaign at the corresponding levels. Then we thought, “Say, maybe some of the other folks might want a shirt too? or… what if they wanted TWO shirts?”
So our web tigress has put the finishing touches on our shiny new shopping cart and so you, yes YOU, can order these new t-shirts too. Also did I mention there might be a chance to buy a PURKLE shirt too??!?!? I didn’t? Then never mind.
These limited edition T-Shirts are ready for Pre-Order (sales for shirts end May 6th).
In addition we have a lovely array of Brand New Fun Raglan Shire STUFF which you can order right now anytime! (No Pre-Order required) 🙂
WARM FRONT MOVING IN!
This just in from the National Raglan Weather Service! A Warm front is heading our way and is projected to arrive late Sunday through mid day Monday bringing rising temperatures to the Shire! It looks like an early Spring arrives and with it, melting snow and the possible reappearance of Grass!
As such we’ll be holding our Final skating party of Winterfest at the Skating rink on Mt Waffle. DJ Conall McGinnis will be spinning tunez and Live Musical Performer Tamra Sands will be singing for us from 1-2 pm Sunday January 23rd. Come for the fun and wonderful music and with luck temperatures will hold cuz it would suck if the whole mountain melted and collapsed taking down the rink while everyone is on it… Medical teams will be standing by just in case..
The game Tinys were Born to play!
Frootcake is a super fun game that 3 to 5 players can play thats easy to learn and has elements of chance and strategy makin it a highly addictive and enjoyable experience. Plus, it has CAKE! in short, it is FROOT-UH-LICIOUS!
Several tinys who had been playing this game demanded that we bring it to the Shire but the one drawback to the game was that the included seating was only for biggies. OH NOES! SO i contacted the creator Rifkin Habsburg who was kind enough to modify the existing FROOTGAME table to have tiny compatible seating and after a week of helping him benchmark the table, FROOTCAKE was ready to take its place on the Shire for tinies to enjoy!
You can find the game in The FROOTCAKE ROOM in the newly redecorated PAW & WHISKER Tavern which is back and freshly thawed out after being buried under Mount Waffle for the entire Winterfest.
As of this writing, 12 of the top 20 FROOTCAKE players in all of Second Life are Tiny friends of Raglan Shire including Chester Reichmann & Karmasqrl Avro at #1 & #2! you can look at the World Rankings at this URL
Look for The First Raglan Shire FROOTCAKE Tournament coming soon!!!
