The Thirty-second Year

Wolfscairn Invasion -- Vinhold

May 31, 1997 (AS XXXII)

Two Rocks Coast Guard Station,
Petaluma, CA

From The Page (May, 1997):

Last year, the shire of Wolfscairn recklessly invaded the Barony of Vinhold, only to be repelled without even setting foot in Vinhold territory! Now Vinhold goes on the offensive, entering Wolfscairn to meet its forces in glorious battle once again. The event will be held in the cool climate of Two Rock Coast Guard Station. We welcome one and all to come play with us — tune up your skills for West-An Tir war. The site will open at 9:30am. Armor inspection will begin at 10am, and we will get the fighting underway at 10:30am. A native forces battie will be followed by the usual variety of scenarios, including open-field, woods, bridge, castle and resurrection battles, Light fighters, including combat archers, are welcome; combat archery will figure in most scenarios.

Site Regulations: Remember, the site is a military base - speed limits must be strictly observed. There is a (non-swimming) pond on site, so those with smalls must supervise them carefully. The site will close at 6pm.

Site Fee: $5.00 per person.

Autocrat: Joseph de la Tour (contact info omitted).


Reminisces:
"This event was held at Two Rocks Coast Guard Station

Erich Johann Meyer was Huscarl to Prince Brand and had travelled with His Highness the week before to the Potrero War in The Barony of Califia, Kingdom of CAID. Erich Johann Meyer was inspired to write the following poem during the preceding week of Wolfscarin Invasion and read it to all the gathered fighters before the first battle.

Wailwulf, prince -wildly charges
Engaging enemy everywhere
Caidians cleaved by crimson glaive
Bondsman sees Prince's death, blocks blade
Coronet not concerned, charges distant threat
Guardsman gasping, runs like giant
Royal wolf rips enemy, roaring
Bloody foes return battle, weapons ready to bite
Prince's shieldman slams snarling teeth
Wolf's glaive swings greatly, ground accepts foe
Huscarl halting Prince's death, howls
Loping off to new fray, lusting battle wolf lunges
Gleaming in crimson, glaive guts new foe
Shieldman searches slaughterfield
For Coronet his bound charge, crossbow his death
Bolt bites, bondsman dies
Wailwulf, prince -wildly charges"

-- Erich Johann Meyer
