Seven Hills Skirmishes
March 23, 2013
Barony of Black Diamond


As the first breaths of spring winds cut through the valleys, we are reminded of the approach of summer. With the green fields and bright days comes WAR!

The monarchs of Atlantia have called for Their army to train at arms and Their people to sharpen their skills in preparation for Pennsic War. The Canton of Seven Hills has heard Their Majesties call and answer.
