WIEDERHERSTELLUNG DER TRADITION
RESTORATION OF TRADITION
Issued by the
DUKE OF REINMAR
24th of Joma & Umond, 447 E.S.
GOTT LÄCHELT UNS ZU.
For many years, the Reinmaren people have gone without a proper chance to celebrate the succession of their Chieftain. In the times of Princess Johanna, what should have been a joyous occasion in the form of her wedding was overshadowed by the sudden loss of her father, the recently abdicated Prince Johann, and the diligence she displayed throughout the construction of Rozenfeld sacrificed too much time for a proper Oath of Macken to be held in her honour.
In these times, however, His Princely Grace, Wilheim II has deemed that a return to the traditional celebration shall be held, in unison with the matrimony between himself and Lady Josefina Kortrevich before GOTT, so that the people of not only Rozenfeld and the Duchy of Reinmar, but all of Hanseti-Ruska and the Waldenic Diet may join together for this merry occasion embedded in the Reinmaren culture. His Princely Grace thus invites any and all to the celebrations to take place over the span of two Saint’s Days in the following year of 448 E.S.
THE WEDDING OF WILHEIM BARCLAY AND JOSEFINA KORTREVICH

For many years, the Houses of Barclay and Kortrevich were ones with knives at each other’s throats, such tensions peaking during the time of Duke Erich of Reinmar and Count Jan of Jerovitz. However, with this mistrust dwindling in years since, the two families are delighted to announce the union of the Duke Wilheim and Lady Josefina, daughter of Count Nikolai. This union shall be held in the coming month of Vzmey & Hyff, in the halls of the Cathedral of Saint Tylos located within the family keep of Wilheburg, and officiated by the Matriarch of Jorenus and Bishop of Reinmar.
BLESSED JOHANN’S MELEE
As the couple prepares for their new life together, it is paramount that they remember those that came before them, so their legacies may live on alongside their own. One such ancestor is Blessed Johann Barclay, famed Duke of Reinmar and the Lord Marshal who led Haense and the BSK to victory over the Holy Orenian Empire. In honour of the Blessed man, a melee shall be held on the tourney grounds of Rozenfeld, where participants may only wield a one-handed axe, much like the Marshal did when GOTT smiled upon him. A prize of 150 minas shall fall into the hands of he or she who bests all other competition.
Following these events, a feast shall be held within the dining hall of Wilheburg, as is custom with the weddings of nobility. All are welcome to attend the aforementioned schedule, regardless of status. One must remember where they came from.
THE OATH OF MACKEN

An ancient Reinmaren ceremony which was brought back by Duke Erich of Reinmar, the Oath of Macken has been performed for the Duke and all successors following. In the coming month of Tov & Yermey, all are once again welcomed to the lands of the Duchy to witness this ritual be performed for the new Chief of the Reinmaren within the rose fields adjacent to the Duchy’s keep.
TYLOS AND NICHOLAS’ JOUSTS
In honour of the Canonised Barclays, Tylos of Kalden and Nicholas of Reinmar, and in line with the family traditions, two jousts shall be held within the tourney grounds of Rozenfeld. In honour of Saint Tylos, a traditional joust shall be held, with each rider riding on one of two white horses, the same colour as the horse Tylos rode over the city of New Reza.
In honour of Saint Nicholas, and his sacrifice in defence of the clergy, all participants shall be packed within the confined tourney grounds, with only their lances, much akin to the confined area of the Basilica of Saint Heinrik’s aisle. All participants shall then engage in a brutal free-for-all, recreating the chaos which took place in those blessed halls.
Upon the conclusion of each joust, both victors shall be awarded 100 minas, and face off in one final joust. The last remaining atop a saddle shall be rewarded a further 200 mina.
