About Masters of Merriment
The Masters and Mistresses of Merriment are very limited
positions, for several characters; such as, wizards, jesters , and minstrels.
These merry makers are the favorite of the court! Their job is simply to
entertain, and though most are commoners, it is possible for one to be a
noble as well. The court is open to new ways of entertainment, and should you
have any ideas on how to entertain the court (in an orderly, kind, and
medieval way) we are interested to hear of them.
The jesters of course will be the main entertainers. They are
always happy, always witty, and always there to cheer us up! The most
amusing jester will become the royal families personal merry maker. Though
it may not seem like there is much a jester can do, one must remember that
appearances can be deceiving
The wizards will have several jobs past stewing up little tricks for
entertaining. They may be called upon to help serve in a battle, in
protecting, or for their advice, one will also be choosen as a member of the
The minstrels! Why, they play music at dinner, in the court yard, in
the hall, everywhere! When not making music then perhaps they are telling
tales, or quoting poetry. With a minstrel around, life at Sembers could never
be dull. The Minstrels are to always have their instruments with them. The
most talented Minstrel will become the royal families personal minstrel,
though of course they are welcome to perform for others as well.
