Event details

The Barony of Carillion has stepped forward to answer the call to War and will host the Southern Region war camp Year V.  Located less then 10 minuets from exit 8 on the NJ Turnpike, there will be ample room for activities and camping.

We are proud to host the K&Q Archery Champions.  Targets by Master Rupert the Unbalanced!  The Archery War Point practice targets will be available for warming up.  For your convenience day board will be delivered to the archery range.  Check in starts at 10:00 AM and the competition starts at 11:00 AM.

Back by popular demand "Equestrian Activities" Please watch for details.

We will be having a WOODS BATTLE!!!  As well as fields, bridges and a valley battle with siege and combat archery as it will occur at the war.  We will be having a variety of rapier activities to suit not only preparation for the war but the interest of the rapier community as well.  Archery shoots for all the war points including the clout will be available.  We will also be providing targets for the throwing weapons community, youth marshals will be running a youth tourney and melees (TBD), and we have tapped several very talented artisans to teach classes.  Schedules will be posted, as we get closer to the event.

Sorry for the inconvenience, due to a maintenance problem the pool will not be available this year.  Part of the pool deck settled and had to be jack hammered and removed.  Between inspector bureaucracy and concrete curing time it will not be ready for us.

Are you infatuated with the same old scenarios every year?
Do you love talking for 30 minutes about a 15 minute fight?
Do you enjoy sitting around in the hot sun?
If so, then this may not be the War Camp for you...
If, however, you like some different scenarios that are tied together with a story worthy of an episode of Game of Thrones.  If you like to use your brains to figure out how to achieve victory conditions.  If you'd like to skip the talk and get to the fighting.  If you'd like to be rewarded for winning the scenario...Then this may be the War Camp for you.

Come join us for the reinvention of the War Camp.  Come discover;


Too corny? Too bad, it's all I could come up with.
The day kicks off at noon with a speed tourney to choose the captains then right to the fighting.

2 rules to be aware of;

1) combat archery will be allowed in all battles, but in an effort to hone our archers skills and provide a little balance, only face shots will count for combat archery
2) there will be no spears allowed in the woods portion of the scenario.  Plan accordingly.

Looking forward to seeing you there,
Duke Gregor
Dean of the East Kingdom War College
