Game of Thorntons
“Winter has ended” and the great Houses of Riverside – the Boultons, The Saulters, The Clarks, The Lewises, the McGees, the Grants, and the DeGrassis – are gathering at Thornton Castle to divide the spoils, to determine who will get to sit on the Copper Throne, and to win possession of the legendary Thornton Jewel – a diamond circled sapphire, worth a Queen’s ransom (appraised value over $2,000!)
Many treasures will be available for the highest bidder (there is no truth to the rumour that the lowest bidder will be forced to march through the streets, subject to the abuse of the entire city -- we save that for our elected officials!)
Unlock your treasury, and acquire the finest art, jewelry, food and drink, and much more to take back to your own abode!
On May 11, all roads lead to Thornton Castle, where Kings, Queens, and commoners alike will quaff the finest brews from the Eastbound and Saulter breweries, sample rare vintages from the Counties of Niagara, Prince Edward, and lands beyond the seas.
Feast on delicious sweets transported, at enormous peril, across the mighty Don River from famed bakers Daniel et Daniel in distant Cabbagetown, and sample wild boar, gamebirds, and other delights from the renowned ovens of Il Ponte.
Portrait takers will be on hand to capture this event, so all will be dressed in their most regal finery – and ‘borrowed plumes’ will be available for commoners who wish to look the part.
There will be dragons, direwolves, lords, ladies, knights, and commoners – sharing the quest for the Thornton Jewel and the other baubles to be had at the “Game of Thorntons.”
