Drachenwald Spring Crown Tournament 2023
A Crown Tournament is a peak level event in each Kingdom. At Spring Crown Tournament Drachwenwald´s keenest fighters were assembled at the muddy fields of Ittlingen (Knight´s Crossing) to find heirs for Drachenwald´s crown.
14 fighters, lords and ladies, left- and righthanded met in heavy armored fighting. Ad Flumen Caerulum sent Lord Flose Thordson and Saidra ad Iscula. Alienor de Salignac chose to consort Master Aelric of Battle to underline the friendship with the Shire of Meadowmarsh. They where accompanied by a huge number of companions, meanwhile known as “AFC Ultras” (best away fans ever!).
After endless struggles, glorious triumphs and sad losses, Sir Sven Gunnarsson won the honour of being Drachenwald´s next king.
Our thanks go to the marvellous event staff, who managed reservation, feast kitchen and of course the tournament organization. So many helping hands from different regions working together show the solidarity between the regions. May there be many more!
Here are some heavy fighting videos from the Crown Tournament => Videos on Flickr
Boot Camp Meadowmarsh -Aftermath
The 2023 boot camp at the Shire of Meadowmarsh is over. We still think over the lessons learned and the new friends we have gained. We had some of Drachenwald´s finest fighters with us, who loved to share their experiences in theory and practise. Of course we took the opportunity to such a large bunch of heavy fighters for melee. Nothing is more exciting than the clash of two heavy fighter groups in full armor and full speed. Once more the superior tactics has more influence on the result as the induvidual quality of a fighter.
