It's Only a War: Feathers & Fur

The Mongols have just invaded! The Aztecs never saw it coming! (Neither did we!!!) Feathers and Fur will fly!

The Shire of Ravenslake (Middle Kingdom) and the Barony of Caer Anterth Mawr (Northshield) presents: It's Only a War!: Feathers & Fur.

June 10-12, 2005 (Friday, Saturday & Sunday)

"It's Only A War" isn't just an event -- it's a WAR! (But with NO War points or other such things.)

We will encourage groups who fight together to do just that; pick a side as a unit. Fight together. Train and learn to work with one another and other groups.

Our focus is to learn to work as a team, without having to worry about a point for this or a point for that. Let Pennsic handle War Points.
