Belegarth Book of War (The rules of the game. These can sometimes be a bit long for new folks. We'll cover the rules at practice if you have any questions, or if you just prefer to learn them in person.)

Gondor Realm Errata (These are our 'house rules', which cover a few points where the nation rules are left up to personal interpretation, and also how we tend to fight on the field as a group.)

Location: Volunteer Park in Seattle, WA.
Historic Location: Robinswood Park in Bellevue, WA.
Day/Time: Varies. Typical practices are Sundays around noon. Refer to FB group for planned practice weeks. In nice weather, pickup practices will occur on Tuesday or Thursday evenings (sometimes held in outlying areas - Lynnwood, Bellvue, etc.).
Twice monthly, we cross-game with Dargarth (typically within Seattle), a local group which uses about 90% Belegarth rules. On odd weekends, we often hold practice, when not off at events.

Note: sometimes we have to cancel practice, so it's best to contact us in advance through our e-mail, or mailing list, or Facebook page.

Average Attendance: 5+ (Belegarth-only Practices); 15+ (joint-Dargarth Battle days)


History

Ancient: Gondor was founded just prior to the turn of the millennia by Sir Tasis, while he strove for higher learning. Tasis thereafter moved away, seeking to advance his lot in life, in the course joining other realms. Orion and Xooyan picked up the mantle of leadership in his absence and ran the realm for a time.

Near the beginning of the year 2003, Orion and Xooyan departed, with great sadness from those remaining behind. This began the slow decent of Gondor, as the realm suffered ever dwindling numbers. In the same year however, a band known as the Bushido-kai settled for a time and fought alongside Gondor, helping to stave off its enemies. However, within a year and a half the group had traveled on, leaving the remaining members of Gondor fearful that their enemies would notice their weakened state and would take the opportunity to destroy them.


Modern: Since those dark times, Zaedric and Elbryan, together with a few other core members, have helped to hold Gondor together, despite the troubled times. In recent years new warriors helped to stir the blood of the old realm, and some settled to aid Gondor in regaining its former glory. One man, known as Kestrel, took up the banner of leadership and, supported by his companions, began to rebuild Gondor's numbers.

More recently, from out of the valleys and across the water, former warriors of the Bushido-kai have returned. While missing some of their old comrades, they also bring new blood, adding further to Gondor's ranks.

Together with new allies from the far north and the seven seas, Gondor looks forward to the future.


Events: Gondor traditionally hosts the annual Western Wars event in Oregon every year. Gondor also has participated in multiple Chaos Wars throughout its history, ranging from its early years up through the present day.

Gondor has also recently been making efforts to reach out to its near neighbors. Though the distances are large, Gondor has sent warriors to fight alongside the other coastal realms when the occasion allows for it.
