Midsommer







This year,of late, in Tradgardland the Midsommer celebrations have taken place. The Duke and Duchess walked amongst the dancing and feasting culminating in the lighting of the bonfires to commemorate St John. What will the journey towards the Winter Solstice bring for Tradgardland muses the Duke as he watches the sparks fly ever higher...

Tradgardland 1918ish...





I have been thinking what might have happened to the Duchy of Tradgardland at the end of WW1. I have imagined it caught up in the troubles that beset Germany. I have been thinking of the different factions in the Duchy- Freikorps ( more than one rival group) , Guild/Union militia, Spartakists, the Ducal Army, Anarchists and many more. I would be grateful if you have any ideas for other factions and ideas to "fill-out" those I have already mentioned. Thanks in advance...
p.s Here is a flag from a Freikorps unit
