The Baron Wars ~12:30pm Battlefield
Red Spears/Roaring Wastes Champions – Baron Wars will start with single combat between the Baronial Champions of Red Spears and Roaring Wastes. The Armies of the two Baronies will be assembled to either side of the field and the Champions shall fight in the center of the field between them. The first field battle will commence upon the defeat of one of the Champions.

Field Battles – The Armies of Roaring Wastes and Red Spears with their respective allies will first meet in the field outside the fort in a series of field battles.

The Siege of the Gate – Red Spears’ forces fall back to their fort and Roaring Wastes follows laying assault at the gate. This will be a limited resurrection battle with the defenders (Red Spears) having one rez and the attackers (Roaring Wastes) having three rez’s each.

Fighting in the Streets – Roaring Wastes has broken through into the fort and the fighting has taken to the streets. This will be a resurrection town battle inside the fort.

Escape Through the Gate – The civilians have fled with their camel herds from the fort and the Red Spears Army is covering their escape. This will be a repeat of the battle fought at the Gate with the sides reversed. Red Spears will be outside with 3 resurrections and Roaring Wastes inside with one.

Skirmishing in the Field – The battles will finish with more field battles back outside the fort.

It is our hope to have combat archery and siege in as many battles as possible. Marshals should all have eye protection or helmets. It is asked that day shades are kept on the side of the ravine away from the fort. The field battles will be fought on the side near the fort.
