Plague has ravaged the land and the Kingdoms have retreated, no longer able to continue the war that has raged for years. A temporary truce has been negotiated allowing all factions a chance to regroup and recover. The land is still a dark place. Merchants and the populace go hungry. Many supplies are hard to come by. People have not seen their families or friends for a long time as they hid themselves away from danger.
But there is hope! Apothecaries have finally begun to treat the populace and get the sickness that has hounded us all under control. It is a time of recovery for all sides and peace reigns, but for how long? It is a time of Armistice!
This event will take the place of the SCA’s traditional Pennsic war for 2021 which has been regretfully postponed for another year. This will be a form of Period event in the fashion of Pennsic and it is our hope to create it with as much of the feel of that event as possible.
This will not be an SCA event but a Cooper event this year with the expectation that we can work with the SCA to transition back to a more traditional Pennsic war in 2022.
It is our intent to use a lot of the same processes that past attendees are familiar with such as Landgrab, Site Merchants and Food Vendors. Layout of the site will be roughly the same as in the past with facilities and camp locations where they have been in the past. The traditional road system will be used. We expect to have available list fields, an archery and thrown weapons range that individual groups can reserve for private scheduled events or to practice their skills with friends and competitors. We will also have classroom tents and will facilitate reservations and scheduling for anyone willing to run a class.
We’ve been lucky enough to have many of the same volunteers step up to help to make this bridging event a reality.
Online registration may be extended if we get sufficient numbers to support Armistice.Mail-in Registration Form
