Official Name: Realm of Blackfen

Heraldry: Craobh Beatha (pronounced krowv bay-hah) or 'Tree of Life' on a Heater Shield, on a horizontal halved field of Gold and Black

Location: 800 Community Way, Scottsburg, IN 47170

Membership: Approx. 11

Founded: January 16th, 2020


Blackfen is a kindgom of lowland marshes spread among squat river valleys. Half of the kingdom is low grassy hills, but the commerce takes place along the banks of the River Allegane. It's name is derived from the dark clay that dominates the soil of the river banks and its mire-like flora and fauna. It enjoys hot, humid summers and mild winters, when the marshes are bone dry. In the Spring and Autumn, however, is the wet season. This time of year, the swamps are bogged by water as the River Allegane overflows and swallows the entirety of the lowlands.

As a result of the marshy climate, Blackfen soldiers are typically lightly armored and carry light weaponry. Their fighters prefer the agility and dexterity allowed by light loads. Hot summer winds can create intense periods of drought and intense heat, which leaves little desire for heavy fighters.

Local Rules Variants

In-House Games

"Take me to Valhalla" -

  • This game set is similar to Warlord, except with a Norse twist.
  • There are four teams in this game, one called "Jotun", one called "Aesir", and two teams called "Mundane".
  • Split all fighters off into two even teams. These are the Mundane teams. The first to die valiantly (face-to-face with an opponent) on each side step out to become Aesir. The second fighter on each side to die valiantly on each side become Jotun. Any who die dishonorably (hit from the back or while running away) or after the Aesir and Jotun have been selected have to walk to the edge of the field to come back.
  • The Aesir and Jotun cannot die or lose limbs to Mundane fighters, only to each other. When Aesir or Jotun kill each other, they have to walk back to their respective zones of "Asgard" and "Jotunheim" and count to thirty out loud.
  • The Goal of the Aesir is to get all the Mundane fighters to Valhalla. The Goal of the Jotun is to get all Mundane fighters to Hel.
  • Any Mundane that the Aesir or the Jotun kill join that respective team as either "Valkyries" or "Giants". Any fighters killed by either side are absorbed into the killing team. When the Aesir kill all Giants, or the Jotun Kill all Valkyries, that team wins.
  • This game was created as a way to lengthen Warlord and use it as a closer for each practice.
