When the name of the Canton had been chosen and Isolde made Seneschal, Finn and Isolde labored long and hard among the mundanes to find good folk to populate the land East of the River of Pearl. At first, their efforts availed them not and as the second anniversary of the investiture of Baron Beorn approached, Lady Isolde and Finn remained the only two members of the population of Seleone.
At that time, Lady Isolde was singing with a group of itinerate musicians who were called the Consortium Musicum. In the Fall of Anno Societatus XVI, after a performance given by the Consortium, the performers were approached by a small delegation of mundanes. The mundanes made themselves known as representatives of a mundane festivity known as Coast Con. The delegation was much taken by the performance of the Consortium, especially the beautiful singing of Lady Isolde. They asked the musicians if they would perform at the next Coast Con, to which the Consortium readily agreed.
In the discussion that followed, Lady Isolde mentioned that she was Seneschal of the Canton of Seleone. This drew the interest of the mundanes, for they had heard of the Society and the good folk who made it up. The delegation asked Lady Isolde if the Canton would be willing to do a demonstration of Medieval arts and sciences and martial skill at the Coast Con. To this, Isolde was quick to agree.
Lady Isolde sent word of the proposed demonstration to the Barony of Axemoor and requested the people to aid their Canton. The folk of the Barony responded well, but only three of the Barony's men at arms were able to attend. These warriors were Squire Esteban Tomas de Santin, Bertran L'Ours du Rivage and one other whose name has been lost. Finn Normansson also bore arms at that time so there were four combatants to demonstrate martial skills.
The morning to the demonstration was warm and bright and the fighters were spirited and anxious to display their skill. The combatants started sparring among themselves to attract the attention of the mundanes attending Coast Con.
Within the courtyard of the inn where the demonstration was to be held, the sound of weapons striking shield and helm rolled like peels of thunder and very quickly a crowd of perhaps forty mundanes gathered.
Lady Isolde introduced herself to the assembled mundanes and spoke of the Society. She then gave over to Squire Esteban, called Santos, that he might explain about the martial skills that would be demonstrated that morning.
Before Squire Esteban had spoken more than two sentences, he was interrupted by the appearance of a mundane guard in the employ of the inn keeper. The guard informed the demonstration that a guest at the inn had been awakened by the sound of sword play and upon looking out of his window had mistaken the demonstration for a riot and summoned the minions of the local mundane constabulary to the inn.
Squire Esteban averred that it might be wise to disband the demonstration lest the mundane authorities try to settle the perceived riot by means of force. Lady Isolde also deemed this wise and so the martial demonstration was not held.
Despite the fact that the demonstration of medieval martial arts was not held, good folk among the mundanes took note. Nicholas Kendal of Woolmarket and William Murphy joined the Canton. The mundanes of Coast Con continued to ask the Canton to do demonstrations in subsequent years and with each year more good folk joined the Canton.
