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


For the third year, the border region between Northshield and Artemisia is the site of a raid.

Despite the best efforts of the western army of Northshield, the warriors of Artemisia were able to fend off last year's invasion. This year, flush with their victory, Artemisia is returning the favor, raiding deep into Northshield's rich western lands.

Come to our event and camp along the beautiful North Cannonball River in ND. Stone Butte Ranch is a beautiful site along the Cannonball River.

This is a camping event with limited cabins available for rent. The site has toilets, running water and showers.

There is a main hall for indoor activities, and for feast. If the weather is nice, we may feast out under the stars.

Some noteworthy additions to this site, is that it allows and has facilities for equestrian. As of now, we have no equestrian marshals, so if you choose to bring your horses, you are responsible for all of the rules required by North Dakota (weed free hay, etc..).

Also, if you want to bring your camper, the site has places for parking campers.

**The northern plains in September can see cool weather. Please pack garb and camping gear appropriate to a range of temperatures.**


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


You are cordially invited to come and celebrate this incursion into foreign lands, for much fun and profit will surely result.
