The time is upon us again for the great warriors of Atlantia to become familiar with our vast coastlines. Renew your spirit listening to the clashing of steal; renew your soul listening to the lapping sea upon the shore. Make your presence known! Allow your heraldic display to be seen by our enemies across the sea to warn them of the now well guarded Atlantian shores. Bring your small ones so they begin their training! Remember your tankards and drums, for upon the setting of the sun grand merry making shall commence. Location:

The year was Anno Societatis 18. His most noble and Gracious Majesty, King Olaf Askoldsson was traveling the southern reaches of his Kingdom, and came upon a Mountain, Hidden at the southern tip of Atlantia. King Olaf found the people there to be good, strong, and wise. He and his beautiful Queen Aislinn Schattenwald saw fit to charter a Barony in these southern lands, and was inspired to named it for the mountain he had found. He ordered the populace to choose leaders for their new Barony, and with His Blessing, Eldon Ungol of the Phoenix and Marie-Simone de Barjavel la Fildena became the first Baron and Baroness of these new lands. Then, as the night fell, the Mountain became Hidden once more, only to reappear once a year, to celebrate her recognition and the work by these fine people, and all who have followed. Location:

I came for the fighting and competition,” said Arthur Donadio, 40, a former football player who saw his opportunities for sport dwindling as he aged. “You stay for the friends you make and the opportunity to keep it going and teach other people.” John Ramsey of the Fayetteville Observer has the story.
