Prelude to War 2, Aggressive Negotiations

August 08, 2014 to August 10, 2014

Eugene, OR

Autocrat: Durin Oldenmoor Tjorkilskin device112OP

Greetings one and all, please join us as the Baronies of Adiantum and Terra Pomaria  meet on the field of not quite combat to hammer out their differences in their ongoing feud over… well we don’t really know what it’s over but who cares! We’ll have a ton of fun fighting and competing over whatever it is anyway. Read on for more info!

Site fees:
Adults 18+:$10 NMS applies
Children and Youths 17 and under: free

There will be heavy fighting all day with team battles, field battles, tourneys and one on one challenges, Rapier fighting on both war and tourney fields as well as Archery, Thrown weapons, Arts and Science contests, Games, Bardic, Service and so much more.

Come watch the “Ultimate Baron” contest as Baron Pader and Baron Durin compete in a day long non-stop contest to see who is the mightier (or who collapses first). And there will even be Children’s Siege battles to knock down towers for war points.

If you do not reside in one of the two feuding Baronies feel free to join us anyway, as any war point you win (and there are many to win) we must schmooze you to try and gain your points.

And did I mention the gambling? Yes Gambling!

That’s right, war points may be gambled with like coin. Every person receives 5 points at gate and may earn more thru contest and they may be used to bet on anything and everything. There will even be a tavern hall at night with games of chance (see schedule under "Luky Loki" for hours).

That’s right this just may be the first ever period correct war (and by period I mean that you can literally buy victory.)

So come and join us in Adiantum August 8th – 10th for our Aggressive Negotiations and have all the fun money can buy.

As an extra bit of fun this year, taking classes will get you War Points to help support your home barony! Don’t belong to either barony? That’s fine, you get to choose where those War Points will be going and I have heard rumors of bribery on the wind.

Ages 10 and up welcome.

Largesse for War Points?!

Largesse for War Points, you say? It is true. If you have largesse to donate, you can earn war points. You can also make largesse on site (maybe go learn to make wire wrapped pendants with Ciara?) and earn War Points for your Volunteer hours!

Largess can be turned it at Arts & Sciences (classes area) for war points.
