[ATL] Bride of the Hawkwood Howl

The zombie outbreak having been quelled by valiant warriors gathered from near and far, Hawkwood has spent the year rebuilding. To celebrate the vanquished zombie threat that has darkened our autumn celebrations in years past, we open our list field to those who would gather and partake in feats of arms; we open our halls for the bards and the artists; and we make merry in a glorious feast.

Martial Activities:  Armoured Fighting starts with a Double Elimination Tournament, which will be followed by a "No Shield" Tourney, sponsored by House Askoldssonn.  Rapier will have a Dice Tournament, followed by a Neverending Melee.

Arts & Sciences Activities:  Artisans should prepare for a variety of competitions to test their talents. Info on those competitions can be found at our website.
