  • Emily Ryan, Clara, and Kolebjorn will be coming with me. Really looking forward to seeing everyone!
  • Gonna miss it this time :(
  • Anyone know what time the heavy fighting starts and or a fighting schedule?
  • Heavy/armored fighter oracle tournament. This is a painting of a Thracian type gladiator helmet that was recovered from the gladiators quarters in Pompeii. Incidentally, there is speculation that this was worn by a Jewish gladiator. The Palm is a symbol seen in association of Jews of that time. Another interesting thing is that part of the scientific name for palm is "pheonix". I thought this fitting for a tourney taking place in Phoenix glade.
  • Laurel's award arts and science scroll
  • Populous Arts and a science award scroll.
  • Do we have anyone going down 65 north of Birmingham (I live less then a mile off the Hwy) to Daggers and Hemlock that can transport a Scroll for me?
  • Is there any more inside camping? If so, may I reserve a spot? Pretty please!
  • Due to work scheduling Mistress Marie de Kerimure and Baron Michel von Gruningen will not be making Daggers and Hemlock to teach this year. The A&S class schedule has been updated to reflect this change. We are sorry for the inconvenience that it has caused. Also, this year we will be having an A&S competition again. There will be prizes for the the best Children's, Populace and Laurel's Choice. So bring out those entries and let's see what you have.

  • For Daggers and Hemlock this year we are celebrating the Feast of Vulcanalia. Come join us on the rapier field to celebrate Vulcan and ask him bless our steel and our harvest. The tourneys are as follows: Tribute to Vulcan Tourney – Pay tribute to Vulcan with our steel in a tournament that contributes to an overall team tournament of Daggers. - Round Robin Tournament, Open weapons, Points contribute towards your event team. Sacrifice to Vulcan Tourney – It would seem Vulcan was not appeased and has turned up the heat, threatening our crops. Time to pay Vulcan with blood and hope this calms him. - Double Elimination Tournament, Open weapons Roman Hólmgang – A fight has broken out about how the soothsayers are interpreting Vulcan's intentions. Some traders from the Icy North have told us of a way to settle this dispute. - C&T tournament, Icelandic style Hólmgang, Open weapons, First Blood, Fought in 9' circle
