Defending the Gate XV

March 26, 2016
Canton of Sudentorre


The year is 1523 in the Germanic city of Memmingen.  The snows have barely melted and all though out the winter, the Luther Reformation has spread like wildfire amongst the peasants.  There is a call for able bodied souls to gather and revolt against the corrupt hierarchy.  We are to meet in late March to rail against the city gate. Memmingen needs your arms.  Misguided peasants are attempting to storm the city in a revolt.  Law and hierarchy must be maintained.  A call to arms has been sounded to Defend the Gate. Came all to Defending the Gate XV, whosever’s side your on.  Partake in fighting, fencing, archery and A&S.
