Siege of the city
Fall of Acre
The great siege
All hail mighty Outlands! Saladin has besieged the great city of Acre and is enraged! Those within the citadel are about to capitulate.
The Shire by the Great River, Nahrun Kabirun invites all good gentles to this year’s Siege of the City! Saturday the fighting among the rocks will commence early and continue as long as there are arrows to shoot and rattan to swing! Light fighting will run concurrently as well as activities for kids and non-fighters! During the day there will be good fellowship, dancing, and games; We will kick around the severed heads of our foes who try to spy upon the great city of Acre. Music will begin in the evening and continue until quiet time at 10pm.
