The year is 886. A fierce horde of Norsemen have sailed up the Seine River, and are laying siege to the city of Paris. Join the Barony of Blatha An Oir as we attempt to recreate the defense of this city against the “raven-ous” horde of warriors from the the Barony of Stromgard. We will have heavy and mixed force battles (including archers and seige weapons) in castle and bridge battles. We also do a “time jump” to allow for rapier duels. Arts and Sciences competitions abound! We are currently in contact with Universtiy of Ithra for possible course offerings. And, since this is Autumn War, we will have the Coursing of the Hounds!

The event is being held at the Riverglenn Farms, the traditional Autumn War site for many years. The current site owner has been working hard to improve existing facilities, and expanding the amount of usable parking and camping areas (he has opened up an additional 10 acres in the last 2 months alone!). In other words, we have LOTS of space!!!
