Aquaterra

Snohomish County, WA

Autocrat: Elizabeth de Summerleigh & Jade Redstone device1668OP

An Tir's Warriors are called to assemble and train together!

 

 

While the passes filled with snow and winter took hold, many found war the farthest thing from their thoughts - Those who think not of war are doomed to be defeated when it comes to their lands.

Those who would rise and lead in the defense of our lands, we call you to join us at Art of War and train to defeat those who come against us. Train now, The West is Coming....

We will train in Heavy, Rapier, and Missile Combat skills as well as Marshaling these combat styles.

Join us at Camp Piggot, with open training fields and abundant trails and hills for bridge battles and tactical training.

Bring your armor, your favorite tankard, bedroll, shower kit, and a passion for WAR!

We supply lodging, showers, and home cooked meals and snacks all four days, and an amazing line up of instructors.

There is also a War Support Track for those who would learn about feeding an army, selecting a site, laying out war fields, setting up war events, and understanding how to work with local vendors for best prices.

Duke Amalric Blackhart (OP)

I started in the SCA in 1981, and went to my first war, Pennsic 12. Let's just say the motivation for fighting was already strong, but the elation of that event was inspirational! Since then, I have been to many wars, got knighted, and won a few tournaments. I want to bring my joy of fighting to new fighters, as I have always wanted to share my experience with as many people as I can! The more, the merrier. Looking forward to sharing what I can with the fighters at Art of War.

 

Sir Phillip de Mantel (OP)

I have been in the SCA since 1986. There are few things better in life than crashing through an enemy line with my friends at my side and more of my friends dead at my feet! I believe that the key to warfighting is communication and strong fundamentals, and looks forward to teaching those skills at Art of War.

Marshalling Track

Missile Combat Inspection

This class will cover a little history of missile combat in the kingdom of An-Tir. The basic of how to inspect a wide range of arrows used on the war field. This is a practical class with hands on exposure combat arrows.

 

Basic Marshaling

From the fundamentals of what a marshal's role is, through the basics of armor and weapon inspection, and the physical and personal dynamics of managing fighters on the field. The class is usually focused on armored tournaments, but also includes some information about wars and rapier activities, and can focus more on those depending on the audience.

 

War Planning From A Marshal's Perspective

Factors to consider when selecting and setting up a site where an armored or rapier war will take place, including the requirements for missile combat. Elements which make for clear and enjoyable fighting scenarios for participants using hand-held and missile weapons.

 

Report Writing For Marshals

The Marshal in Charge of an event is expected to write an event after they have completed those duties. Branch Marshals also have to complete reports each quarter; and both they and MIC's may need to write an Incident Report at some point. What do these documents ask for, when are they due, and who do you send them to?

 

Off Field Discussions and Activities for all participants will include:

A Marshals Discussion Group

This is an opportunity for fighters or prospective marshals to ask questions about equipment and field conduct, and for current marshals to share ideas and questions with one another. The goal is to create a dialog which will improve everyone's positive experience on our martial fields.
