Dernehealde’s Haunted Tower 3.5: Purgatory

Welcome to Purgatory, this year’s theme for Dernehealde’s Haunted Tower!

Join us for a day of making merry! We have plenty of activities to make your stay in Purgatory as enjoyable as possible. There will be feats of skill in armored combat, rapier combat, archery, and thrown weapons! Join our artisans in a Popular vote (bean count) of your Arts & Sciences projects – or, if you prefer not to compete, there will also be an A & S Display. There are A & S classes being offered as well.
