Event details
*NOTE DATE CHANGE* NOW OCTOBER 4th for your convenience!

The story so far…

Battle of the Fiery Beast I:  (Unnamed), in the haze of memory…  Dark Lawd Smokey ruled the lands with an iron fist, controlling the Fiery Beast and causing the Lilliputians to scramble and hide from the Menace, his Phantom control.  (See what we did there? Phantom…  Menace…?)

Battle of the Fiery Beast II:  Attack of the Lilliputians, was won by the forces of Grand Daddy Boo, dethroning the Dark Lawd Smokey and causing his forces to flee the lands of Lilliput!  The Fiery Beast was tasty!

Battle of the Fiery Beast III:  The Fall of Lilliput, showed that Dark Lawd Smokey would not remain vanquished, unleashing his mini-might against the remaining Lilliputians of Coil Tuar, waking the children of the Fiery Beast!  His attempt however was thwarted, though the lands of Lilliput fell to ruins, he did not regain control!

Now, the Battle of the Fiery Beast returns!  We thought the Fiery Beast was vanquished for good.  We were wrong…

Battle of the Fiery Beast IV:  A New Mini Menace


It is a period of civil unrest.
Rogue bands of Smokians, striking
from a hidden base, have won
their first victory against
Grand Daddy Boo.

During the battle, Smokian
spies managed to steal the secret
plans to Boo’s ultimate weapon,
armored tower with enough power
to defeat an entire army.

Pursued by Boo’s defensive
agents, Dark Lawd Smokey’s
sister Brunhelga races home
aboard her yacht, custodian of
the stolen plans that can
empower her people and bring
her to control Lilliput….

We will be featuring:

o Choose your side – Points earned during the day will go towards the victor, and you get to decide who that is between either Grand Daddy Boo, or Brunhelga Smokey!
o Thrown Weapons – Including Royal Rounds!  Bring your sharp and pointies for fun and merriment!!
