Blackwater Keep Defender

Are you a pansy, a dandy, or is your liver gilded? Do you need to stay indoors with air-conditioning at 68 degrees? If you answered "Yes," then you should stay home, because men and women who are tougher, stronger and better than you will ever be, are incapable of completing our competition. Remember just stay home and try not to over tax your frail and weak constitution. Last year over 50% of our contestants dropped out due to heat and or exhaustion! If on the other hand, you crave a challenge, long for the struggle of combat and desire to test your fortitude; come vie for Blackwater Keep Defender. P.S. We will feed you till you pop, if you are so inclined.

Subject matter includes scholarship in the finer arts, specialized sciences, and medieval combat (yes, fighting classes, too!).

Education, Fencing, Fighting, Dancing, Drumming, and more will surely sate the intellectual and competitive cravings of adults and children alike!
