As a group, we are active in both the peaceable arts and martial activities of the Middle Ages. We have monthly practices for heavy weapons fighting. Arts & Sciences and socializing may also take place. Arts and Sciences are also served by periodic ‘Eisental University’ gatherings with classes. We also host Events, details of which can be found on the events page.
