Wastelands

In the past months, we have seen war rage in the Kingdom of Gleann Abhann. We celebrated great victories and mourned our losses. Rumors have now reached the ears of His Majesty Michael and His Highness Ragnarr that war will rage yet again between the Kingdoms of the East and the Middle. As we gear up to again take up arms in support of our Sovereigns, we look to find solace while we can. We look to the Wastelands, an oasis in the heart of our fair lands, a meeting place for the fierce enemies and loyal friends alike to gather in peace for a day of tournament, feasting, and fun.   Location:
