Inter-Kingdom Fighter Practice:
(2024-06-21 - 2024-06-23 - Site opens at 3:00 PM & Closes at 12:00 PM)
Stormwall

The Canton of Stormwall is completely surrounded on three sides by the Kingdom of Meridies. It is logical that the Meridians would make their incursion into Atlantia through this sleepy canton nestled in the mountains. It could take weeks before news of this invasion would reach the ears of the Atlantian Crown and a kingdom wide alarm is raised. Stormwall must rely on their brethren from Hawkwood and their cousins from Sacred Stone and Nottinghill Coill if the invaders are to be slowed or dare we hope, repelled. Gird up your loins, strap your kit to your steed and make haste to the West to prevent the invaders from gaining a foothold on our lands. Stormwall shall block the skermishes until the glorious Army of Atlantia arrives.
