A Message from the Dragon and Tyger Heirs about Pennsic

Their Highnesses Andreas and EikBrandr of the East and Middle Kingdoms have issued an announcement pertaining to Pennsic War 38 which will take place July 24 – August 9, 2009.

Their Highnesses write:

Greetings to the Known World from Andreas and EikBrandr, Prinz of the East and Prince of the Midrealm-

We have an exciting announcement concerning Pennsic War this year.

As the hosts of the upcoming Pennsic War, we have been working diligently to come up with a war that EVERYONE can get behind. A war that will include everyone from every Kingdom of the Known World, and where every point will count . Every year we talk of annual enemies and eternal friends. It is our goal to make this a strong reality this year. To this end, We invite you all to a great contest of arms!

So what is different from years past? This will be a two part war, the first being the traditional style where the Midrealm and their allies will pit their strength of arms against The East and it's allies. And then at one point in the war, determined by Us, the Tiger and the Dragon will unite to stand side by side and take on the rest of the Known World! It will require the rest of our allies to unite and test their Generals, warriors, fencers, and archers against the might of the new Pennsic Alliance.

It is our common goal to ensure that everyone has a good time this year, and to be able to test their skills of war in a fun and friendly environment. The most important point is not that one side wins, but that the fight is hard fought, close, and exciting for all.

While working together to make this great gathering a success, We have found that We are very much of the same mind. We have been building a strong friendship between each other and know that Our Kingdoms will grow closer by the end of this war. We will have the opportunity to fight side by side with many of our old friends and then have the pleasure of seeing them across the field. By combining our two armies, the East and the Midrealm will build stronger ties that will strengthen our eternal friendship.

Due to the economy, we recognize that everyone is making hard decisions on which events to attend. We appreciate our populaces for choosing to attend Pennsic War. We aspire to make your vacation choice an enjoyable experience that will have many good memories for years to come. We hope you will join us this year at war and bring many of your friends and family along to enjoy it with you.

In Service to the Dream,

Prince EikBrandr
Prinz Andreas
