A&W War

Welcome to the war!

Come once again to the beautiful, temperate coastlands and the epic war between the mighty Kingdoms of An Tir and the West. There will be battles, both heavy and rapier. There will be Arts and Sciences, rapier and archery, equestrian activities galore--and of course there will be fine merchants.

UPDATE:  

Site OPENS for Merchants on July 2 at NOON.  Site opens on JULY 3rd at Noon for the populace.  SITE CLOSES ON THE 7TH AT 3:00PM EVERYONE MUST BE PACKED UP AND OFF SITE BY THAT TIME.  No exceptions.  

Attention travelers coming North on HWY 101: It has been a very wet winter on the south coast of Oregon. HWY 101 has several trouble spots between Brookings and Gold Beach, with at least one section being reduced to a gravel one lane passage, controlled by flaggers and/or temp stop lights.

Please consult Tripcheck.com when planning your trip to the war. The biggest slide area is not going to be fixed by the time of the war.

history of the war

Tradition saying it was started over the correct texture of chocolate chip cookies (chewy or crunchy), this war has its earliest roots as the Shasta Punitive Raid in AS 11 (August ‘76) where "sides were chosen [&] An Tir emerged victorious, thus forcing the Kingdom to keep Shasta." The following year on the now-traditional weekend, the 2nd Annual Shasta Counter-Invasion was held, calling mercenaries to “HELP SUPPORT--or oppose--THE MANIFEST DESTINY OF AN TIR." Next year's was called the Golden Rivers and Lion's Gate War. Though Kingdom history records no war in '79, it returned in '80 and again in ‘83 as the Lionsgate-Westermark War before again laying fallow again for a year. It returned in its current form in 1985 as West-AnTir / AnTir-West War. After drifting from battlefield to battlefield for decades, it found a home in Gold Beach in 2007 and remains there to this day.
