The future of the Kingdom of the Middle is assured! The Heirs to the Dragon Throne were chosen in the autumn and now will ascend the thrones.

The Barony of Shadowed Stars is happy to welcome you to the Coronation of Edmund and Kateryn. Join us for a weekend long event with something for everyone. We will have camping, feasting, fighting, archery, thrown weapons, equestrian activities, and Classes! Our beautiful site has two playgrounds for the children of the Dragon plus plenty of space, indoors and out, for everyone to have a great time.

Please attend and pay homage to our dear King and Queen, A'Kos and Bella, and welcome their heirs, Edmund and Kateryn.

We wait to welcome you all,
Sir Ulrich Halfdan Ulfsson
Baron, Shadowed Stars


If you are camping, please check with either Gate or other Event Staff for which areas are safe (not mushy) for tent setup.
If you've got a horse trailer, please check the grounds before you drop your trailer and unload.
In either event, please do not drive across grassy areas unnecessarily. We don't want to turf the yard of an amazing site. Dropping a horse trailer is necessary; parking next to where you're going to set up your tent is not. Please stick to the gravel roads as much as possible.
Some day-of activities may be cancelled due to weather, Specifically Thrown Weapons does not have a rain backup. The Marshal will make the call day-of. We apologize in advance for the weather forcing these things.
