The Holy Days are now long gone and we are approaching the celebrations of the Spring Equinox. Lady Winter's grasp on the land is failing and the Great River has already started to break her clutch.
During the rough months of the Northern Shores' Winter, it has not been
unheard of that L'Ile du Dragon Dormant would not get news or messengers
from the Havre des Glaces, as the inns are few and far between. This year

The early morning mists have just begun to fade. The scout, low in the brush, gazes upon the town of Smeewick. The docks, some still blackened from the bandit raids the previous Spring, are active again. The scout watches closely as goods and merchandise are unloaded quickly from the ships to a series of warehouses. If each of those were full, there would be plenty of provisions to allow his army to push further in to Atlantia. He scans the town, trying to see what opposition they would face. There seems to be no regulars of the Atlantian army in Smeewick now, but the scout knows that the townsfolk would be quick to take up arms against any aggressor. No Atlantian town had ever been taken without a goodly amount of blood as its price. Still, the scout thought, Smeewick had the supplies the army needed. It would fall, and after that, they would be ready to strike into the heart of Atlantia. The scout crawls back down the hill, and mounts his horse. cloud of dust erupts as he heads northward. Soon, hard eyes will watch as he proudly reports his findings. The warlord will summon his commanders and discussions will go deep into the night. While some will argue for immediately moving further into Atlantia, others point out that even with the unusually warm winter, the army is short on supplies. In the end, just as dawn is starting to show, the decision will be that Smeewick must fall first. Forces will be marshaled, blades will be made ready, and the shadow of the north will once again fall on Smeewick. Location:

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. Location:

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.
