Once again, war cries fill the mountains around the Barony of Wealdsmere, and the Celts are preparing for war. Come help the innocents defend their homes or help the Celts retake their ancestrial lands.
Already we have heard tales of their raids upon our neighbors as they push ever closer to our prosperous Barony intent on thieving, war, and of course plunder. Join us as we prepare to defend our land from those nasty little Celts.
This year, in addition to various battle scenerios for the heavy fighters, there will be a Last Man Standing Tourney after the war as well as a Valhalla Tourney Sunday morning. There will be a Rapier tourney for those interested as well as a Throwing weapons contest, there will be archery as well.
For non – combantants, there will be a number of activities. Such as find a sheep, the Big Hair contest, bardic and an A&S display.
