Grey storm clouds raced overhead, rain pelting the slate roof of the
cathedral, as bells began to ring though out the country side.  A new King
has been crowned!  But not all are pleased by the news.  Swiftly, a courier
races for the coast to bear the news back to his master in Normandy.

It was January 6th and word spread quickly throughout Europe of the Witan's
move to place the crown on the brow of Harold Godwinson, Earl of Wessex and
protector of the realm.  Events and forces begin to stir like the storm
clouds above Westminster and soon the country side would be filled with the
clamor of hammer striking metal as England prepared for war.

Now Heed the Words of the Herald!

Sharpen your swords, mend your armor and prepare to march for you are called
to fulfill your oath and duty!

The sparks that ignite the everlasting fires of history can sometimes be
small, but burn the longest!  And forever change the shape of things to

Come do your part to help shape those changes!  Bring forth your valor and
your might and test yourself against your worthy foe.  Do you march to help
win a crown, blessed by his holiness himself?  Or do you ride with your
brothers and neighbors to throw out the usurpers?

On September 7th - 9th A.S. XLVII find your way to the armies meeting within
the woods of Ffynnon Gath, Shire of Ansteorra as we, brothers and sisters in
arms, face each other over shield and spear!  Warriors all, heroes each come
to test strength and skill to see who shall win the day!
