The enemy has brought their siege weapons and warriors but we shall prevail behind our strong castle walls. Siege is the theme. Polish your armor, pack up your pavilions, banners, war drums and camp followers and prepare for a week-end of battles most noble and more fun than you can shake a sword at. Come one, come all to our aid and help us defend our lands and celebrate the harvest. The more the merrier!

"Shiver me timbers and shiver my soul.
There are men whose hearts are as black as coal.
And they sail their ships 'cross the ocean blue;
A blood thirsty captain and a cutthroat crew.
It's as dark a tale as ever told of the lust
For treasure and love of gold."

All hearts turned with battles hard song
To An Tir's Heroes fields
Come! Mighty warriors of the West's fierce stand
Come! Mighty warriors of An Tir's battles bold
Come! All warriors from beyond suns broad gaze
Celebrate Valhalla's bounty with brave hearts lifted
Share with helmed brothers and sisters the blades beloved gifts
And glory's shining path of bloods happy rain.
