The Fifteenth Year

Broken Mountain War -- Wastekeepshire
April 11-12, 1981 (AS XV)

From The Page (April, 1981):

May it be known to all that the good folk of Wastekeepshire, having been in peril of their lives by the wrath of a certain mountain, whose care has obviously been neglected by the Barony of Three Mountains, and having been inadequately compensated for said inconvenience, will with their allies, meet Three Mountains to wrest said peak from their grasp by force of arms in hope of subduing its wrathful spirit and averting their future doom. Fighters, Marshals, Medics, Gentles, and Peasants are invited to join in battle and brew (provided by Wastekeep).

The armies will meet at Plymouth Island on the Washington/Oregon border (see map) on April 11 and 12. Set-up can begin Friday evening. War qualifying will be between 10 and 11 a.m. on the 11th. War archery is planned, but not definite. Call the autocrat for confirmation. Battles will probably include: open field battle, a forced march, ship combat, castle storming, and a bridge battle.

Water, restrooms, and showers will be available. There is no camping fee. Saturday evening revelries will include a potluck feast and bardic circle. There will be charcoal grills but no fire pits.

Wastekeep, a small but valiant shire, will meet the larger and more experienced Barony of Three Mountains with all courage and valour, but would rather not die that way, and so implores the fighters of An Tir to join them in demolishing both Three Mountains and a keg.

For information call Dyon de Mantel (contact info omitted).
