DRAGONS ARE COMING!
Dragon’s Horde is approaching! Draconis and his evil minions will once again attempt to despoil the gem of Atenveldt! All are invited by the Barony of Tir Ysgithr to this glorious event. Dragon’s Horde will once again be a two-day event with Feast on Saturday evening! Expect frequent appearances from Draconis’ oh so pleasant ambassador.
Following opening court, there will be a monster tourney (double elimination), where each team will pit their monster against another team’s monster. Teams must be sponsored by a household and each household can have more than one team. Any weapon style may be used. The winning household will receive a special prize to be displayed until the next Dragon’s Horde event.
After the monster tourney, there will be a Fighting Clinic for hard suit and rapier fighters. All participating fighters will have an opportunity to fight against peers of their order.
Opening court will be at 10:30, closing court will be held at the time of Their Excellencies choosing.

The White and Red Dragons will attempt to feast upon the bones of our steadfast hardsuit combatants while the Green Dragon snacks on our youth fighters. For our rapier fighters the evil Kraken will attempt to destroy all challengers!
To finish, there will be a Grand Melee. The white dragon and his minions (the winners of the monster tourney) will descend on the villagers (i.e.: the rest of the heavy fighters). Villagers will use torches (single sword) and pitchforks (pole-arm) to defend themselves.
Opening court will be at 10:30, closing court will be held at Their Excellencies discretion.
