The Event

Combat/LARP Event

OCTOBER 27/28/29, 2017

Greetings Dagorhirrim! In this time of blistering heat, endless thunderstorms, and suffocating humidity, we look fondly forward to the cooler days of autumn. In October, when the leaves begin to change, we hearken to the sounds of clashing Warbands, again ringing through the wooded foothills of the Appalachians!

The Cairnhold Legion is pleased to once again request your presence at A Clash Of Kings, our annual battle and campout. This year’s event will include multi-sided field and woods battles, a Monster Hunt, arts and sciences classes offered by the Legion’s Coven of Succubi, and, in true Cairnhold Legion fashion, evening revels and song that go late into the night!

After the Fighting is over for the day, ENJOY EMR’s OTHER AMENITIES such as Outdoor Volleyball, Horseshoes, Cornhole, Kan Jam, Bocce Balls, and the traditional Bon Fire plus Ping Pong, Beer Pong, Foosball, and Cards upstairs in our full Rec. Center. The EMR Store now Carries ICE, FIREWOOD, CAMPING SUPPLIES, and SPORT SMOKE along with Food, Snacks, Beverages, and Camping Equipment!


Entry for this Exciting Weekend is only $25. All Prices include 6% PA Sales Tax. THE ENTIRE EMR EVENT PARK WILL BE DEDICATED EXCLUSIVELY TO THIS EVENT!

CASTLE WAR is the second LARGEST, NASTIEST CASTLE that exists for FIGHTING right behind CASTLE AAARRGH. With over 22,000 square feet of Fighting area within its walls, CASTLE WAR sports two stories of playing and a full two story 8’ to 16’ deep rampart completely encircling a courtyard of buildings, towers, and barricades. The corridors below the ramparts are full of staggered walls, windows, and doorways leading into the courtyard. With only 4 openings from the outside into the courtyard and two gang ramps from the Siege Machines onto the upper ramparts, this Castle is a fight to enter from Game On.


Facing the Castle Front Wall (Considered WALL 1) is TIPPMANN TOWN 2.0, a large town with numerous buildings surrounded by Barricade Courses on all 4 sides and only 200’ from CASTLE WAR’s Front Door. To the right of the castle is WALL 2, which faces CASTLE NUMBSKULL with woods, stone fences, and barricades throughout. The back wall (WALL 3) is faced with trees and bunkers backed by a downhill sloping ridge. To the left (WALL 4) there is a mixture of trees, barricades, and buildings before hitting a downward slope.


The current Dagorhir Manual of Arms can be found at: http://dagorhir.com/index.php/rules



++ Metal knees, elbows, and hands are allowed pending armor check for safety

++ Helmets of 14 gauge and thicker metal are allowed pending armor check for safety. We don’t particularly believe in “non-period grills”, either. 

++ Expanded grappling rules: Fighters wearing torso armor may grapple other fighters wearing torso armor. Only torso armor (including shoulders) counts in regards to grappling in armor. Fighters wearing no torso armor (including shoulders) may initiate a grapple with anyone. No one holding a bow or arrow may be grappled or initiate a grapple.


Code of Conduct for Cairnhold Legion Events:

We do not tolerate harassment of people at our events in any form.
In order to take action, we need to know about any incident during the event.

Everyone is entitled to a harassment-free event experience, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, or physical appearance.

Harassment includes, but is not limited to, inappropriate physical contact, unwelcome sexual attention, offensive verbal comments, deliberate off-field intimidation, stalking or following someone, making harassing photography or recordings, and disrupting talks or other events. Anyone asked to stop any unacceptable behavior is expected to comply immediately.

A request to “stop” or “leave me alone” means exactly that. If anyone engages in harassing behavior, the event staff may warn the offender, remove the offender from the area, or expel the offender from the event with no refund at the discretion of Cairnhold Legion’s Primarchs.

If you feel that you are being harassed, or if you notice someone violating event or camp policies, we respectfully suggest the following:

If you feel comfortable doing so, point out the inappropriate behavior to the persons involved. Often this will solve the problem immediately.

If you do not feel comfortable talking with the persons involved, or if talking to them does not resolve the issue, please report the situation, in person, immediately to ANY member of the Cairnhold Legion, who will take you immediately to an officer. 

Try to provide a name and/or a physical description of the person or persons involved.

In order to take action, we need to know about any incident during the event.
