Hear the words of Ulf Von Greiffenburg, Baron Fenix!
I will tell you a tale of valor, of bravery, and of grand deeds. At this very War in the Kingdom of Aethelmearc did we go again to fight, treaties dissolved, others broken, oaths not kept and new allies found amongst old enemies. We made a foray from our small keep there. Soon did we find the enemy drawn up inside a castle they called Hell. Their forces were also still making for the safety of the walls, many out in the open and upon the road. There were towers and a broken wall to our front. So down the hill we rode; smashing hard into the enemy, driving them from one tower and gaining ground on their gates. A call rang out to turn and face their reinforcements poring through the opening in the broken wall. We drove them back, and they would repulse our charge. Again and again the forces of the Dragon Army held at the wall, but we were not able to break from our foe there, nor go through them. Several times I saw Her Excellency Fenix go down under the blows of the adversaries from Aethelmearc and their many allies. Yet she never gave quarter, nor asked any for herself. (more…)

We are in need of MOL’s , mollets and anyone willing to help sign fighters in as there is plenty to be done. (more…)
If you know a youth who enjoys padded weapon combat, or if you are an adult who would enjoy fighting with padded weapons and young people, come to North Oaken War Maneuvers.
Big ideas are brewing to make SCA combat more fun, more inclusive and accessible to all. Plus, we’ll teach melee tactics in a easy to learn setting.
