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?
