Cousins in War / Comrades in Celebration

The populace of the Known Worlde is invited to the first annual Great Western War, an Inter-kingdom gathering to celebrate the arts of war and of peace! On the third weekend of Febuary, A.S. XXXI (1997 AD.) Prado Regional Park in Chino, California, will host the fighters, artisans, archers, and merchants of the Society at the first encounter of the Great Western War. Come and camp beside the waters of the lake, stroll the grassy meadows, enjoy the temperate climate and balmy winds of central Caid. Fight with people from all over the Society all day, revel with them all night.

  • Site token designed by Eowyn Amberdrake , very loosely based on the four elements of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water and things associated with the war. Earth was combat ("to dust you shall return"), Air was the comet above our heads, Fire was a campfire and the comradery of sitting around one at night, Water was a coracle and by extension the many classes and "things made" at and for the event.
