To arms! To Arms! The enemy is upon us! Now is the time for War!!! The terrible, evil, stinky, nasty "bad guys" seek to thwart our valiant populace and raid them of their bounteous harvest. 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!
