War! That's right — and boy, do we have a war for you! We need your help defending our sheep from the nasty Vikings from the Shire of Wudholdt be Secg. There will be heavy and light fighting scenarios and Arts & Sciences classes. There will be a feast in the evening and reveling in the Allyshian tradition. Our sheep need your help; we can't do it without you!
