The Society for Creative Anachronism - This group is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe. Our “Known World” consists of 20 kingdoms, with over 30,000 members residing in countries around the world. Members, dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, attend events which feature tournaments, royal courts, feasts, dancing, various classes & workshops, and more.
Last Hope - This group is a live action role play (LARP) that is hosted at locations throughout south central Wisconsin with one goal in mind; to bring role players together in an immersive, high quality and rich event with rules that are simple enough for anyone to learn and involved enough for veteran players.
This year we have greatly expanded our offering of available seminars. Many of them will be done by our special guests and other talented gamers from around the country. We will be offering a wide range of seminar topics including things like game theory, tips and history as well as several hands on demos such as chainmail making and miniature terrain building.
