Esfenn vs. Southern Shores -- Esfenn

August 9, 1986 (AS XXI)

From The Page (July, 1986):

Southern Shores and Esfenn, having resolved their mutual disputes in a peaceful fashion, are about to be under attack. On August 9 the forces are expected to engage in battles, lasting 2 days. Dark rumor has it that the marshalls have hired hordes of mercenary scum, to overwhelm our peaceful homes. All who wish peace and prosperity in the kingdom are invited to join us at Camp Lindblad in the cool Santa Cruz mountains August 9 and 10. Showers and flush privies will be available, as well as a hall for dancing and reveling.

To join us (directions omitted).

The site will open at 5 p.m. Friday. The site fee will be $3. This is a dry site. Parking is limited and will be a distance from the campground.

Mixed light and heavy combat is expected so bring your screens. All armor and weapons will be inspected. Check your chinstraps, screens, armor, thrusting tips and polearms before you come. Especially note that all polearms must have heads that shall not be constructed solely of rigid materials (rattan is rigid) and the head shall allow some progressively resistant give between the striking surface and the haft.

Any questions? Contact Seelie or Chandra at (phone omitted). Mercenaries wishing honest employment should contact the seneschals of Esfenn and Southern Shores. People defending lands and home can always pay better than the homeless.

Description of this event (if any), taken from The Page, or from memory of at least one person who attended the event.
