Event details
What do you get when you cross other good events of the East like Balfars, GNW, SRWP, and War of the Roses…? You will get the soon to be wonders of the RIVER WAR.  WHY you ask “Because peace is boring!” according to a Baron.

We, the Barony of Iron Bog, invite one and all to attend this event to help the Barons of two lands ease their disagreements (Whatever they may be).  As the words of this disagreement have traveled, the King and Queen have decided to make a guest appearance to make sure that everyone has a good time and a fair battle be had.  So with that said --->

A call to all soldiers {light and heavy – young and old}, artisans and scholars, archers, weapon throwers, cooks, and merchants come choose a side and have as much fun as you are able to in a weekend with all that is planned.

The fun will start Friday night with tourneys into the night.  Followed by a full day of playing in your favored form while earning victory points in the name of the land you fight for.  For info about the tourneys and battle scenarios whether heavy, light, or archery please see http://www.ironbog.eastkingdom.org/river_war/r-war-4.html (Web site still under minor construction)

For those of you that prefer to do your battles in the kitchen, there is a tourney set for you as well.  Bring you best period dish enough for at least 8-10 people.  The dish will not only be judge by a judging panel but the populace will be allowed to put their input in as well.  Visit the web site for more information.  http://www.ironbog.eastkingdom.org/river_war/r-war-4.html

We would like to also invite merchants to come and entertain those wonderful folks that truly enjoy shopping.  Please contact Lady Marion for information (ladymarion@comcast.net)

And just because the sun sets does not mean the fun is over.  Get cleaned up grab a partner for a bit of dancing led by Lady Jane.
