The Canton of Rivers Point will once again be hosting The Siege of the Black Tower on April 9, 2011.
A lone black tower stands near the riverfront beside the King's road. This tower is a major point of river defense to the south of fair Atlantia. As the weather turns warmer, invasion of our lands by our enemies is once again possible. We must continue to sharpen our swords and wits to help hold these river bound lands for Atlantia.
Come and join us for a day of Tournaments, Melees, A & S Classes and Competitions, Pages Academy, a Silent Auction, fun and friendship. There will be a Black Tower Tournament for both heavy weapons and rapier combatants. There will also be a melee competition for each combat form. Melee combatants must bring a prize to donate to the Treasure Chest in order to participate in the melees. For those of you who are not fighting, you may wish to bring a prize for a fighter to donate to the Treasure Chest in your honor!
