[NOR] Fighting in the Shade

Fighting in the Shade: An event for combat archers and all other fighters too...

Combat Archery is a growing part of the fighting community, and can play an important role in battles of all sizes. Combat archery is most effective when works in combination with other armored combat elements.

Fighting in the Shade is an event that provides an opportunity for combat archers and other fighters to train and fight together. Being an official War Practice, our focus will be on learning tools and skills to help combat archers and other fighters work together and make the Northshield Army more effective.
