About Us

Our mission is to provide the people of Kentucky and its surrounding areas with a unique and immersive creative outlet.

We are dedicated to fostering a community where individuals can forge lasting friendships, experience exhilarating fun, and engage in outdoor physical activity.

We started from a group of friends enjoying historical reenactment, martial arts, cosplay, and role playing.  We started putting our rules together as early as 2013, but moved into research realm around 2017.  We started our official play testing in 2021 and then held our first event.  Our goal is to make something where everyone can have fun and take part.
