Every year our Renaissance Faire is centered around a story, referred to as the plot. This plot gives the day a theme and allows the faire to progress to an eventual climax at the end of the day. As members of the club create their characters, they will begin to give them backgrounds and develop the character's current occupation or even why the character is present at the Faire based on plot. This year’s plot may be as follows:
Queen Elizabeth Day in Rye Royal, EnglandThe year is 1579 in a small coastal town of the name Rye. Six short years ago Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth, came to the town of Rye to bestow the title “Rye Royal,” for their participation in a battle against the Spanish. Suddenly, on the day of the 6 year anniversary celebration of Her Majesty’s visit, a group of pirates, led by Captain Warner, invade the town. Will Sir William Gold, the protector of the town, be able to save Rye or will the town fall to the devious pirates?
