[ATL] Drums of War

The year is 1412.  Europe is immersed in the battle for France. The House of Valois and the House of Plantagenet are waging war for control of the French throne. The House of Valois claimed the title of King of France, while the Plantagenets claimed the thrones of both France and England.

The country is torn.  The camp is divided.  Which side will you support? Will you choose to fly the French fleur de lis or display the English lion. You must choose your allegiance when you arrive on site and step back into this war torn time in history known as The Hundred Years War.

On the fields of Elchenburg Castle, these epic battles will continue. Melees of grand proportions in both heavy and rapier will offer opportunities for practice and authorization.  Archers will have opportunities to hone their skills as well. Thrown weapons, siege weapons and more will be there.
