Unto the Populace of the Great An Tir does the Barony of Vulcanfeldt send its greetings!

Spring is here, and with it comes Baroness’ War! Come and earn war points in many different categories and choose which side you fight for. There will be heavy fighting, rapier, cut & thrust (new this year), target archery, field archery, thrown weapons, equestrian, and siege cooking competitions for you to use your skills at. There will also be jousting! This year, we are starting a new competition, Team Scribal Challenge! Please watch for more details on this new 4 person event that will require each team to create an original scroll in just one day!

We are at a new site this year, the Grandview Country Park located at 812 Wallace Way, Grandview, WA. This is a lovely park with lots of space, trees, toys for kids, and indoor meeting spaces. The site is located within Grandview city limits, so there is a quiet time of 10:30 PM, and it is VERY DISCREETLY WET – within your own encampment, in a period container please.

Their Royal Majesties will be in attendance this year, and we look forward to the honor of hosting them at our event! With Their Presence, there will be an opportunity for peerage meetings, so please be sure and check with your Order if you are required to attend as we would hate for you to miss out!

Royal Presence - King
Royal Presence - Queen
