Swords Clash at Missouri Adrian Empire Demo

Lord Christopher Blackthorne, viceroy of the Shire of New Exeter, the Jefferson City, Missouri chapter of the Adrian Empire, helped bring the Middle Ages to life for a crowd of spectators recently at the Mark Twain National Forest near Guthrie, Missouri, recently. Michelle Brooks of the Jefferson City News Tribune had the story.

"This is a chance to be who you've always wanted to be," said Lord Christopher. "And it's relaxing, a chance to not worry about mundane responsibilities."

The Shire of Exeter was formed in January, 2006. The recent encampment was held to introduce the public to the group's activities.
