Arizona reporter savors the sights of Estrella War

Writing for the West Valley View, an Arizona newspaper, reporter Justin Doom says that trying to explain the Estrella War to someone who has never been there is like trying to explain color to a blind person.

In a lengthy article full of interview quotes featuring SCAdians, Justin Doom writes:

Literally hundreds, if not thousands, of fully armored, shield-wielding warriors square off on a battlefield that's flanked by tents selling a variety of dishes, including hot stews and meats, which are adjacent to merchants hawking jewelry, beads, clothing - it's the medieval equivalent of sensory overload.

The article explains both how SCA combat works and how one can choose a persona.
