Quest for the Grail of
Avacal

 

 

Long ago,
at the first Inlands-Avacal War, the armies of Avacal struck
deep into the heart of  the Inlands
Region.  After
sharp and glorious combat, Avacal emerged the victor.
 But a tale is
told of a Great Treasure that was denied the Northern hordes,
a Grail of surpassing beauty that was theirs by right of
combat but which remained hidden from their
Warriors.

 

Now it is
whispered the Grail has been found in the Barony of
Wealdsmere, though Baron Caieth denies ever laying eyes on
it. 
Nevertheless, in defense of Avacal’s rights, Beothuk of
the Beothuks, Baron of Montengarde has called upon his forces
and mass them on the Border.  He will have the Grail
that belongs to his Prince, else he demands the tithes of
Dregate and Grimwithshire.

 

Fortunately, conflict seems
to be a foregone conclusion.  In keeping with the Quest
for the Grail, combat scenarios will draw from Arthurian myth
and cinema.  Yes,
there could be coconuts involved.  Look forward to the Battle
of Badon Hill, The Bridge of Eternal Peril, Gauntlet of
Pictish Archers, Siege of Castle Anthrax, Arthur’s
final conflict with Mordred and other great staples of screen
and legend.
  Bring every weapon you own.  There
will be a res. battle in which you get as many lives as you
have weapons to res. with. 

Come join
Their Excellencies of Montengarde and Wealdsmere for a
weekend of combat and camaraderie in the beautiful woods and
mountains along the US-Canadian border.  In addition to Heavy
Combat there will be Bardic, A&S (see schedule below), Pied Piper
activities and anything else we can come up
with.

Combat Archers take
note:  The
Society Earl Marshal has ordered that all arrows and crossbow
bolts be modified to have a head no less than 1.5 inches
across due to recent injuries inflicted by arrows going
through grills. 
Please be sure your missiles have had the required adjustment
made.  Fighters
should also check the width of their grill bars, there will
be an inspection!
