Are you a pansy, a dandy, or is your liver gilded? Do you need to stay indoors with air-conditioning at 68 degrees? If you answered "Yes," then you should stay home, because men and women who are tougher, stronger and better than you will ever be, are incapable of completing our competition. Remember just stay home and try not to over tax your frail and weak constitution. Last year over 50% of our contestants dropped out due to heat and or exhaustion! If on the other hand, you crave a challenge, long for the struggle of combat and desire to test your fortitude; come vie for Blackwater Keep Defender. P.S. We will feed you till you pop, if you are so inclined.

Readin', Writin', and 'Rithmatic, while indeed meritorious subjects of study, are NOT among those being offered at The College of Three Ravens. Classes will include a myriad of topics on historical practices, as well as those regarding our Society's activities in these Current Middle-Ages!!! Subject matter includes scholarship in the finer arts, specialized sciences, and medieval combat (yes, fighting classes, too!). Plus, there will be ample opportunity to actually practice these many pastimes (pun not intended). Education, Fencing, Fighting, Dancing, Drumming, and more will surely sate the intellectual and competitive cravings of adults and children alike!

Shed your prim and proper exteriors for a brief time and let your wild sides run with abandon. Now celebrate our safe passage through winter with the sounds of merriment, the clash of swords, rapier blades flashing in the sun and more silliness than anyone can possibly stand as we fight against boredom and mundanity.

As the spring doth bring renewal of life it also brigs for the threat of that devious demon decapod that saline swilling fiend of the depths once again setting its many limbs upon the shored of Loch Salann. Once again the warriors of the now endangered Barony are called upon to push this threat back into the briny depths from whence it reared it's vile head.

The gentles of the Barony of Caer Anterth Mawr and the Shire of Ravenslake are very excited about this years’ camping event. We have planned many activities. The site is the same as last year and it absolutely beautiful.
We are surrounded on three sides by a lake where there is a beach for swimming. There is a hill with trees that adds to the fun of the fighting field. We will again be sponsoring heavy, light and children’s combat and archery. There will be A&S classes and activities and merchants selling their wares.
