Gulf Wars is a week long event traditionally between the Kingdom of Ansteorra and Kingdom of Trimaris. It takes place at Kings Arrow Ranch in Lumberton, Mississippi, and is hosted by the Kingdom of Gleann Abhann.
Attendance is currently around four thousand. It attracts a temporary community of people from throughout the known world, all willing to suspend life in the 21st Century for a week and pretend they are living before the year 1600.
Attendees transform Kings Arrow Ranch into a medieval town and revel in the recreation of ancient times. A fort and some backdrops to the action are permanent on the ranch; others require participants to use their imaginations. Encampments are built when members arrive and everyone tries as far as possible to live in character the entire week. We feast on authentic period food, reproduce medieval artifacts and clothing, enjoy medieval music and dance, and we fight, day and night!
No one really gets hurt however, because this is a War With No Enemies.
Gulf Wars XXI will be held on March 11-18, 2012 at King's Arrow Ranch. 26 Kings Highway, Lumberton, Mississippi.
