Dire tidings indeed,

Bands of Northmen have been sighted rowing up river in search of our
migrant farming camps & villages.  Can our farmers complete the harvest
before the Vikings can attack?  Will the valiant fighters posted to our
border watchtowers be able to defend against these raiders?  Are these
peaceful communities to be saved by their defenders or put to the torch
by the raiders?

Join us for this year's Steppes Fallcourt and see!  Our "Village Raid"
should be as entertaining to watch as participate in with teams of
defenders and raiders using their best strategies to defend or steal
grain and livestock from a peaceful farming village for points while
protecting or burning* the huts of the farmers.  Are you up to the
