For the heavy fighters we have several tourneys, including the (in)famous Nordic 1000, three days of war, plus plenty of structured fighter practices organized by Sir Siegfried and Sir GrimR. Of course we also have fencing, archery, arts and sciences as well as unforgettable sauna parties that last until the morning or beyond.

The Shire of Polderslot likes to invite you all to our Summer event.
The theme this year will be witchcraft and superstition. The site is in a beautiful spot in the woods, perfect for outdoor activities.
We will arrange a quest to look for witches and ghosts, so we need heavy weapon fighters, fencers, but also people who are able to do arts and sciences like for example music. However, it is recommended not to stay out in the woods after dark, for the locals swear the 'witte wieven' still roam at night...

Come one, come all to the final rites of the Goddess Diana, the Ludi saeculares! These rites of Rome were four historic celebrations of pageantry, games, and sacrifices to close the six day celebration honoring the goddess Diana. In the days preceding this semi-centennial event, heralds were sent about to invite the people to a spectacle which no one had ever beheld, and which no one would ever behold again. Great sporting events and sacrifices took place in the Circus Flaminius to discourage evil deities from entering the city.
