Honor War

April 21, 2017 to April 23, 2017

Pullman, WA & Moscow, ID

Autocrat: Phelan Tolusmidr

On the cold steppes of Artemisia, a new King rises and proclaims His Queen.  Gleefully Gwenevere turns Her eyes westward to Her homeland of Lyonsmarche.  Dearly does She remember the lentils and garbanzos of home and whispers words of encouragement.  Through the winter He has gathered His forces and prepared them for the long march homeward.  Soon the frozen hand of winter will lift and the passes will open; Dread Floki comes.

Yet all is not lost, for the inhabitants of Lyonsmarche, long used to the plundering of neighbors close and far, have sent scouts far afield to look for unwelcome guests.  Camps were noted, fires counted, and communiques intercepted.  Swift dispatches to An Tirian cousins have been sent, ties of old renewed, and war banners unfurled!

Will the Isle of Silcott fall to the ravening hordes of Artemisia, or will the Council of the Inlands once again keep Lyonsmarche safe for trade and livestock?  And who will YOU fight for?  Be you fighter (heavy and rapier), archer, brewer, or craftsman, all will contribute to their cause!

Event Steward:  Phelan Tolusmidr (Bill Lillibridge).  1513 Airway Avenue, Lewiston, ID  83501; Phone 208-791-5039

Fees: Ages 18+ $20, under 18 free.  Day Fees: Ages 18+ $15.  $5 member discount applies.

Site:  Chief Timothy State Park, Clarkston, WA  99403
