Greetings from the Autocrats of Lilies War XII!

We are excited to announce that the theme for this year's Lilies War

During the 8th through the 12th Centuries the Norse, Danes, Swedes, and
other northern peoples went Viking, traveling throughout the western
world raiding, trading, and settling. They met the Irish, English,
Scots, Britons, Franks, Romans, Spanish, Moors, Byzantines, even
Russians. We are planning numerous activities incorporating this theme
into the war, such as boat battles, raids, Viking games, axe-throwing,
and demonstrations of Viking era arts ans sciences.

We are asking that fighters and archers form units to represent the
various tribes, clans, and nationalities involved in these conflicts,
and then that the unit commanders for the two sides select overall
commanders from amongst themselves. We would appreciate if the units
would contact us so that we may make a list of the units forming.

Cantons, Orders, Guilds and other groups to volunteer to staff the Troll
