[ATE] Highland War XIV

Invaders are coming!!! We have heard invaders are amassed upon the borders of the Barony of Ered Sul and the Northlands of the Kingdom of Atenveldt! Yet our network of spies is active and our intelligence is bountiful, as we have discovered the route of the invaders! Hence, the armies of the Northland now march to meet this scourge in the high meadows and forest of Mormon Lake, AZ (30 miles south of Flagstaff, AZ). Mark ye, thine calendar to join us as this contest is played out Thursday, August 7th through Sunday the 10th, 2008.

The rumors are true; a consortium of southerners led by the Barony of Sundragon is invading the beautiful and blessed lands of Ered Sul! Their Majesties of Atenveldt have decreed we settle our differences before They return from crusades in the East; and so, we hereby invite ALL to join us for this historic encounter! Whether ye be Foul Invader or Bold Defender of the Northlands, know that we shall contest mightily in EVERY arena - Hardsuit, Rapier, Archery, Equestrian, Youth Combat, Arts and Sciences and Bardic. We hope you will come and enjoy the trials and tribulations of all! There will be cooler weather, trees, merchants, and surprises for all to enjoy.

Highland War XIV will take place from August 7th ~ 10th, 2008. The site will be at Mormon Lake Recreation Facility, approximately 30 miles southeast of Flagstaff.

ACCEPS for Pre Registration will be available *just as soon as* all the paperwork may be approved. Please look to the Highland War XIV web site at: http://www.highlandswar.org for continual updates.
