Most of you donating to this game will have been to the event before or will have heard friends talk about it. TLDR: Support one of the largest foam fighting medieval combat events in the country - We need your help to improve our amazing gaming event!
Battle for the Ring is one of the largest battle game events in the country with robust national attendance and projected participation of nearly 650 fighters for 2015. If this is the first time you are hearing about it, now is a great time to come to sunny Southern California in January to experience a medieval fighting event that is an amazing adventure.
Every year we have done our best to make the event larger and the community has done what it can to make the event bigger by getting the word out and rallying the troops. This event is a 4-day medieval camping, gaming, and martial arts activity that the whole family can enjoy. We have a small group of vendors, day and night activities including: simulated medieval combat for participants over 14 with guardian permission, tournaments, games, themed battles, costume parades, night-time board and card games room, free food, campfire fun, music, art, and dancing. We do our best to promote medieval culture and the sport of foam sword fighting throughout the event. We welcome Dagorhir, Belegarth, Amtgard, and various LARP group participation, and have been pioneers in both promoting and encouraging cross-gaming in our region.
But we need your help! The event has been primarily funded through a very small number of community people and we need additional funds to cover the increases in camping fees as well as other resources for the ever growing attendance. Please donate today and come to the event. You have our gratitude and the appreciation of an entire community of medieval enthusiasts.
STRETCH GOALS & Special Reward Images
These Stretch Goals are for things we've dreamed of giving you in years past, but couldn't afford on pre-reg prices alone... so only donations beyond the $30 pre-reg price will go towards these goals. If you pledge $33 for the pre-reg package, $3 goes towards stretch goals; if you pledge the $55 pre-reg & Sword pack, $25 goes towards stretch goals. If everyone pitches in and donates a few extra dollars, together we can accomplish great things, allowing us to bring you truly unique Medieval experiences! Stretch goals can be seen below as well as images of our new rewards brought to you with partnerships from our community. Many thanks to Bacchus and Plithacorn for the help!
Risks and challenges
We have put on this event for several years and know the event will continue this year. Our greatest risk is that the event is being paid for out of pocket by the organizers, so it does not have a running fund to ensure that it will continue far into the future . We want to start having funds for the event so that it can be run indefinitely, just as it is for other Belegarth events, such as Chaos Wars. Your funding will go a long way to helping us now and hopefully also in the future, so that BftR continues for many future participants.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
