Come join us this Saturday, November 7th, for our virtual Ducal Challenge. The link to the event will be posted later in the week – we will update this announcement accordingly.

This event will begin at 6 PM (EST) with the second meet and greet of our baronial candidate pair – Charis Accipiter (Sandra LaVigne) and Orlando Sforza (George LaVigne). Join us for the open Q&A session as we get to know our candidates, learn about what makes them tick, and why they want to become the next Baron and Baroness of Settmour Swamp! If you wish to remain anonymous, please submit your questions to our Seneschal, Lady Natal’ia Bolotnikova, via email to

About the candidates: Charis & Orlando have called the Swamp their home for the past 25 years. As baronial officers, they have worked over the decades in various capacities, with Charis as Exchequer and Seneschal, and Orlando as Herald and Fencing Marshal. The dedicated duo have also worked behind the scenes as autocrats and cooks, organizing fencing tournaments and scrumptious feasts on countless occasions.

Learn more about the candidate pair in our upcoming issue of the Mudpuppy coming soon, along with further information regarding polling.
