Could you elaborate a little more about what you mean here? It sounds
interesting and it may be something I would like to see happen in my
neck of the sca. Is everyone reading from one long story or are they
reading several shorter stories? Are they from the Decameron? Or are
they plays? Or something else? Is it more formal or laid back?
