A Message from Their Majesties and Their Highnesses:
The Royal Family honours the will of the People of Septentria, and the people have selected Dafydd and Mahild as the next Baron and Baroness of Septentria.
War is inevitable and soon we depart for the debatable lands.
Our Thegn and Bannthegn call those loyal to Septentria to arm themselves and gather in their Canton of Caer Draeth on the 12th day of July. War is coming to the debatable lands, and on this day we will hone our martial skills and prepare to march to battle as a Barony.
This gathering of Septentria's might will be held after the marriage of our dear friends Conall MacEarnan and Johanna Hearst at the Snow Valley Ski Resort in Midhurst. MAP LINK Personal presences are encouraged as there is plenty of room to display your splendor. The ceremony is at after which we will arm ourselves. Fighting will start at and end promptly at .

Huscarl to Grom, Thegn of Septentria
As the snow becomes naught but a memory and the grass and trees return to their former splendor the fresh breeze of spring fills our sails but also brings with it a waft of something else… Camaraderie and battle… Maybe with a hint of heroic deeds, fireside tales and a slight undertone of chaos. Which can only mean that melee season is upon us.
Since I'm splitting my time between Armoured and Rapier combat I'm happy to announce THL Hans Thorvaldsson has accepted my offer to be my Huskarl. As my Huskarl Hans will be responsible for organizing baronial fight practices and leading Septentria's armoured troops into battle.
I would ask that all armoured combatants that would rally to Septentria's banners contact THL Hans (firstname.lastname@example.org) and watch for upcoming practices.
Grom, Thegn of Septentria
e had the honour of traveling to Gulf Wars with their Majesties and it was truly a fantastic time. It was a great break from the snow and ice. While it did rain for the first day of fighting the weather was a very agreeable 25 degrees most days. For such a large event the atmosphere was surprisingly laid back and relaxed.
The fighting scenarios were all really interesting. We got to fight over a fort, there was a ravine battle that added some different elements to the mix and of course a field battle and everyone certainly had their fill of fighting.
There were a plethora of classes from Lampwork to Blacksmthing to the Germanic Migration Triggers. There was almost a class for any interest and topic; you would be hard pressed to claim boredom at any point in the day.
Of course who could forget the great company? We had over a dozen Septentrians make the long trip south and were promptly recruited into the Ealdormere Cavalry. It is a long trip, but with everything there is to do and the atmosphere of the event I would absolutely recommend making the trip at least once, then you'll be hooked.
