The Watchmen of Ered Duath History

Dagorhir-style fighting reached the Provo, Utah area in 1991, when Jay Barnson, aka Vagabond Dark of the Aratari, moved to Utah from the Maryland.

He initially gathered a small band of interested people, each armed with a single one-handed sword; they adopted a set of rules similar to those used in Dagorhir and called themselves BattleGuard.

This group expanded, both in the number of warriors involved and in the number and type of weapons they created and used (even developing shields!), and in the summer of 1996 they fully adopted the Dagorhir rules and registered under the name "The Watchmen of Ered Duath" (The Watchmen of the Shadow Mountains, as the translation goes).

In the Fall of 2001 Lots of Political Strife caused Dagorhir to split. This Ended with One Group "Owning Dagorhir" and the Other 2/3s of the people Created Belegarth - Medieval Combat Society where one group of persons does not own the sport but we collectively own it.

Currently, The Watchmen comprise of the Belegarthians living in the Utah County area.

The current rivals of Ered Duath, is the realm to the North, Aquilonia, aka The Red Hand.
