[ATL] Battle for Marsh Abbey

Deep in the woods, on the edge of the marsh, a small abbey has stood silently for years on disputed lands. Secluded, almost forgotten. But times have been hard in the Canton of Misty Marsh, and so they look to these lands as a source for new revenue.

Brockore Abbey serves as adviser and protector for Marsh Abbey, and they have heard that Misty Marsh is preparing it's army for the march. Therefore the Abbot has put out a call for help.

Come join the Brockore Abbey in defending Marsh Abby, or march with Misty Marsh as they lay claim to the lands.

Heavy:

  • Torchlit Tourney: Friday night.
  • The Relic: Marsh Abby has a prize relic, of great value. The army of Misty Marsh have pledged to have this relic. Sides will take turns attacking and defending the Abby. The attacking side must enter the Abby's hall, steal the relic, and take it to their camp (think capture the flag with only one flag.) The team that completes the mission in the shortest time wins the war point.
  • Bridge Battle: Those who are defending the Abby, will try to stop the attackers at the bridge. Take the bridge, (best 2 of 3) and take the war point.
  • Field Battle: Timed resurrection battle. Control the field to win the war point.

Rapier

Equestrian: Lord Alain will be running equestrian games for the enjoyment of both riders and spectators.

Target Archery: Lord Cian is putting together a shoot that promises to be challanging and fun.
