Letter from the General

Unto my Shield-brothers, Spear-sisters, Comrades and Kin, do I Eques Uldin, by Grace of Their Royal Majesties General for Gulf Wars XXVIII, send the call out to one and all for WAR!

Their Majesties Dongal and Catalina have called upon Their Baronies, Shires and Cantons to join them on the fields of Gulf Wars, and preparations are well under way. Soon we will march east, the Falcon Host soaring amongst a sky of black stars. Make ready your harness, make ready your voices, we shall sing together in glorious victory or death. The levy has been summoned. Her Majesty Catalina has called forth her Fyrdmen to stand fearlessly shoulder to shoulder with her in battle. Will you join Her?

If you will be attending the war in March please take a moment to sign the Muster so that Their Majesties may know all who will be attending.

Please note that pre-registration for Gulf Wars is now open, and will close February 15th, 2019. You can register by mail or online at https://www.gulfwars.org/registration/. Be sure to register as camping with Calontir! Pre-registering is the only way to ensure we have the allotted land we will need for the Host we bring. 
Winter War Manuevers will be held on January 26th in the Barony of Mag Mor. I request that all who are able to attend. There will be classes covering shield wall tactics, spear work, and charging. There are many drills planned for the day; we will fight until they make us leave!

The War Council and I are happy to announce the Calontir Scutari, a new shield design. Please see Sir Aiden O’Shea’s announcement concerning construction dimensions. We anticipate being able to field a few of them at the war. (Facebook Post)

In ever faithful service,

Eques Uldin of Ravenscroft
