Hosted by the Incipient Shire of Drachenfeld (Kingdom of Artemisia) and the Shire of Dreibrucken (Kingdom of Northshield).


For many years, artisans and warriors from the western reaches of Northshield have taken the perilous trek into the Kingdom of Artemisia.


Drachenfeld, a small outpost in Artemisia, has provided great hospitality to Northshield’s travellers, but the kingdom’s people have long eyed the beautiful and bounteous lands along the Yellowstone with avarice.


This year, ASXVLII, will a hearty band from Northshield travel to Drachenfeld to attempt to capture these lands for Their Royal Majesties, Their Heirs, and all of the people of the kingdom.


Victory will not be determined by the blade alone, but by skill at the softer arts as well; music,games of skill.
