The best little war in the Kingdom of Atenveldt is back for its 16th year! Their Excellencies of the Barony March of Mons Tonitrus and the Barony of Tir Ysgithr invite you to come join in the excitement of Turks in Transylvania, at a NEW SITE!
In 1417, the Ottoman Turks conquered Walachia and forced the Prince to agree to pay tribute to the Sultan. After the Prince’s death, successive leaders failed to take the area back. That is, until Vlad Tepes was appointed Prince of Walachia in 1456. Thus began a campaign to clear the Turks out of Walachia, Transylvania, and other surrounding kingdoms. Legend has it that Prince Vlad captured the Sultan and his men, impaled them on wooden stakes, and left them. Soon after, the new Sultan invaded Transylvania and drove Prince Vlad into exile in Hungary.
Who will win out in the war for Eastern Europe, Prince Vlad or Sultan Mohammed?
Join us at beautiful Wren Arena on Fort Huachuca to find out! There will be Archery, Heavy, and Rapier scenarios, Arts and Sciences classes, Youth activities, drumming and dancing, bardic, EQUESTRIAN, combat cookery, and all the usual fun you have come to expect and enjoy at Southern Crusades!
Her Excellency of Mons Tonitrus, Brigit, has volunteered to sponsor a competition for the encampment that best suits the theme of the event, so bring out your fancy lamps, carpets and pillows, or your spikes, castle walls, and bats!
