One for all and all at once. Melee is a perfect name for this event for melee is mostly used in a rather formal context to refer to a relatively large and noisy crowd of people in which they move in all directions.

Their Excellencies, Ruadhan and Thyri and Nathaniel and Svetia invite one and all to come join us for this action packed event. Come fight, join your brothers in arms as we have minute clinics for mass weapons. Come and bear witness to the joys of polling for a new Baron and Baroness of BTY. Come enjoy the vigils and elevations of the deserving individuals. Come revel in the nights parties , come spend the days shopping, learning, fighting and communing with friends and chosen family. Expect fun, Expect smiles, and expect a melee of activities. Maybe some shenanigans if we’re lucky. So bring your tents, bring your vardos, bring your RVs, bring your games.
