Event details

As part of the celebration, Iron Bog will be hosting the East Kingdom Archery Champions' Tournament.  And to add to the day, Iron Bog will be also holding their Baronial Fencing and Rattan Champion's Tournaments. 

Archers of the East!  The time has come to test your skills in the King's and Queen's archery champion tournament!  Queen's champion Lord Kusunoki Yoshimoto and King's champion Lady Siobahn Chorimaic have designed for you a contest based on Russian fairy tales and history with a few modern twists!  Ward off Charging Mongolians and the evil witch Baba Yaga!  Save the snow maiden, Snigorochka!  And who could have a Russian shoot without Rocky, Bullwinkle, Boris, and Natasha?
