Bordermarch: "A roar of battle cries and the clatter of lances"

"It was a scene more reminiscent of Europe in the Middle Ages - but the middle ages were never this much fun." writes reporter Sarah Moore of the Beaumont (Texas) Enterprise.

Moore is describing a ravine battle at the recent event in the Barony of Bordermarch (Ansteorra). She continues, "Instead of dying of their wounds amid the unsanitary conditions of the pre-antibiotic world, these warriors would part friends and retire to their air-conditioned (courtesy of the East Texas autumn) tents at the end of the day."
