A lone black tower stands at the top of a Holy Tor beside the King's road. This tower is a major point of river defense to the south of fair Atlantia. As the populace knows, spring is the time of year when we can expect to see invaders coming from the sea, gliding up our precious river to wreak havoc on this portion of the kingdom. It would appear that next spring will be no different. We must prepare!

The Siege of the Black Tower
Pocahontas State Park
Chesterfield, Virginia 23832
Canton of Rivers Point
The siege against our beloved tower will take place on 17 April, Anno Societatis 44. We are sending a plea to stouthearted Atlantian heavy fighters, to the mighty wielders of the Rapier, and to feared-throughout-the-realm Atlantian archers to come and ward off this attack. The day will be hard work; the wooded areas around the tower will be teeming with those wishing us harm. Be prepared to meet the enemy in the woods and fight to the death.
While the battle rages outside the walls, our skillful artisans and brewers will present their creations in a glorious competition and display. The river folk have planned a Silent Auction fund-raiser in order to gather some seed money to repair our tower in time for next year's event. At the end of the day, the inhabitants of the black tower will prepare a sumptuous feast.
This battle will last but a day. Space is limited to 150 people (not including children) and pre-registration is required!
