Event details

Once more do the horns sound in Malagentia and the ground shakes beneath the feet of those called to arms as we assemble for the 36th Great Northeastern War.  Over the last few seasons, we have aggressively cultivated the livestock that had been lost to us in previous wars, little knowing the havoc this would unleash.  This past winter, our flock of Vorpal Hares, long thought fully domesticated in our lands, were reported to be preying on innocent bystanders as far afield as Stonemarche.  We discovered our leporine droves had grown unmanageable and are now running amok (amok amok).

Our friends in Stonemarche have agreed to assemble a force to help us hunt down these rascally varmints, and so come July, we invite you all to join us in the Province of Malagentia for a weekend of competition and camraderie as we band together to free Malagentia from the scourage of the Vorpal Hares!


We'll have our full offerings of Fencing, Heavy Fighting, Arts & Sciences, Thrown Weapons, Archery, Youth and Family Activities, Bardic, the New Moon Ball and more.  Individual schedules to come and will be posted on the website when more information is available.

Please note that as in prior years, there is NO LAND GRAB for this event.  All camping space will be available on a first come, first serve basis.

From Bethel, Berlin, Montpelier, Burlington, Montreal, and similar points West:

Please consult a map to find your best route to pick up Route 26 South west of the towns of Norway and Oxford, Maine.  For most folks coming in from Northern New Hampshire and Vermont, you’ll want to cross the Maine/NH border on Route 2 and pick up Route 26 South in Bethel, Maine, but there are other possible routes as well, depending on your starting point.

Follow Route 26 South through the Western Maine towns of Bryant Pond, Paris, Norway, and into the town of Oxford.  About two miles after you pass through the business district of the town of Oxford, you’ll come to traffic lights which mark the entrance to a Wal-Mart (on your right).  Pass straight through the lights, continuing South on Route 26.  1.8 miles after the Wal-Mart, you’ll pass the Oxford Plains Fun Park on your right, closely followed by Oxford Plains Speedway on your left.  About 1.7 miles after the speedway, turn left onto Route 121 North (a Citgo station marks the corner of this intersection, on your left).  Follow Route 121 North, into the town of Mechanic Falls.  After 4.4 miles, you will arrive at a 4-way intersection with a traffic light.

Turn left at the light (keeping the Cumberland Farms on your left) onto Route 124 North.  Follow Route 124 North into the town of Minot.  4.4 miles from the light you will come to a strange intersection, which is marked as the junction of Routes 124 and 119.  Turn right at the Yield sign and then immediately left at the T intersection (heading away from the church), staying on Route 124 North.

Continue a further 2.3 miles on Route 124 North, into the town of Hebron.  Hebron Pines Campground is clearly marked, on your left.
