Thirty years ago, a tall warrior strode out of the wilds of Fredonia. Stopping at the shore of the great Erie Lake, she saw that it was good. So, did Morgan Elandris make the Rhydderich Hael her home. And having no further concern, she and her companions sought adventure in the East. Many wars and feuds did Morgan fight. Honor and fear were heaped upon her name and, in time, she became a Baroness by her own hand.... But that's a different story.

Come one, come all and enjoy the company and fun of Battle of the Pines!
Graywood has changed sites and has had the joy of designing one tailored to your needs with shaded camping, plenty of room on the list fields, stalls and ready water for the horses, showers for you, and a stone fire pit for evening enjoyment. The site is still semi-primitive but with limited electricity and multiple water sources.

The Outlands premier period combat collegium is returning for AS XLI. This year, by popular demand, we will be bringing back Puck and Mary Curtis to teach Spanish Rapier.
On the armored side we are bringing in Roger Siggs who will do a workshop on Intermediate Fiore. If you've attended a few basic Fiore classes and feel you've learned as much as you can from them, you NEED to be here.
Both fighting workshops will be all day long affaires (6 hrs of instruction) so you should come away overstuffed with new knowledge with which to improve your fighting prowess.
