St. Paddy's Day Bloodbath - March 10th, 2018

Banners of the North, weep! You shame your noble King with your winter's lethargy! It is time to seize your swords and grasp your shields. Time to check your kit, increase your might, work out your kinks, and share in the joy that comes only with the bonds of brotherhood forged during war. Arise and shake off the rust of these past frigid months. Sound the battle horn and muster again. Let all the banners of the north fly and fan our hearts to acts worthy of song!

Join your fellow Atlantians at the Barony of Ponte Alto's Annual St. Paddy's Day Bloodbath where the fighting is fierce and the lunch is free. We present a day that will be sure to satisfy even the most bloodthirsty fighter. This event is a fighter's dream, featuring our usual bearpit tourney and as many pickups as you can stomach. Remember, this is for both light and heavy fighters.

Please note: This is traditionally a *cold* event, so please dress appropriately.
