We invite you all to the twentieth and final Gothic Wars!

We have had more fun than was thought possible but now we are tired and almost out of beer! So join us and help make this event like it's the last one there will ever be...

Events planned thus far:

  • Chivalric Melees
  • Rapier Melees
  • Chivalric Tourney
  • Rapier Tourney
  • Knife, Axe, and Spear Competition
  • Arts and Sciences Competition

Every year at Gothic we have the tradition of the Gothic War Chest. All who participate or wish to have a hand in the fun are encouraged to bring whatever bit of prize or largess they wish to toss into the war chest. First pick from the chest goes to the champions of the war; then it's open to all who contributed! It's a fun free-for-all that has become an important part of Gothic!

This year Centurion Gerold has doubled the size of the fort and will be giving this portable defense structure away to the lowest bidder!
